Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

What is Laser Lypolysis?

Laser Lipolysis (laserlipolisi) commonly referred to as smartlipo, is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, which removes stubborn fat deposits in specific regions in the body through a gradual process. The process entails liquefying the fat in the body, allowing it to drain throughout the course of a few weeks to a month.

 

A Good Candidate for Laser Lypolysis

Good candidates are healthy, non-smoking individuals who have difficulty getting rid of fat deposits in specific regions of the body. If you are more than 20 pounds overweight, liposuction is not a solution for you. It is important that you notify your doctor if you have had any major operations in the past.

 

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo this procedure. The minimum age requirement for this procedure should be 18 years of age.

 

Laser Lypolysis Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your doctor, who will discuss the method(s) that will be used to achieve the best results. Small incisions will be made around the regions that will be concentrated on. A cannula, or tube-like instrument, will be inserted, and fat will be liquefied with a small laser located inside the cannula.

 

Once the fat is loosened and liquefied, it will drain out of the small incisions throughout the course of a few weeks. This procedure is less invasive because fat is not vacuumed out, like the traditional liposuction.

 

Average Duration of the Laser Lipolysis Treatment: approximately 2 hours, yet this will depend on how much fat is to be removed, and the locations in the body from which they are to be removed.
