SmoothShapes is a noninvasive procedure offered by San Francisco, CA board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray. The treatment helps eliminate cellulite, and assists in achieving visible improvement in body shape and skin tone. The treatment utilizes suction and low-level laser energy to massage the tissue, helping move fluid through the lymphatic system, and smooth the appearance of dimples in the skin. It is the perfect treatment for post-op liposuction patients, as well as anyone looking to smooth the thighs, abdomen, or buttocks. The treatment plan consists of 8 sessions, twice a week, for four weeks for beautiful, flawless results.
Through the use of photomology, SmoothShapes uses a combination of laser and light wavelengths to specifically target cellulite. The treatment area will be properly prepped. The 650 NM wavelength will penetrate the fat cell membrane and make it permeable and more accommodating to be effectively removed. Then, the 915 NM wavelength will penetrate deep into the tissue to elevate the temperature, which will liquefy the fat to move it out of the fat cell. Rollers will massage the area and will be combined with suction to move the fat into the lymphatic system to allow the fat to be eliminated from the body. The entire procedure takes around 20 minutes.
After the procedure, a patient will experience no downtime. There might be a slight soreness that should subside within a few hours. No pain medications should be needed. Patients might notice a slight improvement in the treatment area immediately, but full results should be achieved after 8 sessions. Improved skin should be tighter and smoother as a result.
"I had a procedure done over 13 years ago. I still feel and look great! He is sensitive professional and knows what he’s doing. Will go back and refer him to as many people as I know."- J.F. / Google / May 05, 2018
"Dr. Grey, is a kind, honest and very helpful with all your questions about plastic surgery. I got implants 17 years ago and they still look great. I have never had any problems with them. I am older now and planning to have them removed by him because I trust him. You can trust him he is the best!"- D.H. / Google / Mar 21, 2020
"I have been a patient of Dr. Gray's for over 20 years. He is an amazing surgeon (breast augmentation in 1996) and an artist when it comes to surgical procedures, injections and other body work! I highly recommend him, he listens to your needs and does just what you want. His staff are amazing too, they are hard working, kind, and always have your best interest at heart."- B.J. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"I had the most amazing experience with Dr.Gray! I had my surgery 4 years ago and when I first met him, he was super informative and I could tell he had an artistic eye. I scheduled my surgery days after my consult and the whole day was comfortable, I wasnt nervous at all because I knew i was in good hands. Healing was a breeze, I stopped my prescription pain medicine the day after surgery and I had no bruising at all. These days, I follow many surgeons online and ive seen many surgery clips and there is a difference in healing based on how gentle and experienced the surgeon is, and Dr. Gray's expertise shows in the healing process. I wanted a natural look, and he delivered. No one is able to tell Ive had work done :) His staff was extremely personable and accomodating towards me and they went above and beyond expectations. 5 Stars in every category. My experience was perfect every step of the way."- N.D. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Words do not describe how happy I am that I found Dr. Gray and his staff. Everyone made me feel at home. Dr. Gray saved my sanity by performing a perfect capsulectomy and replacing my implants. I had been in pain every second of every day since the day I had my first implants done. I could not handle the pain and discomfort anymore after 3 years. The original surgeon was absolutely no help and I would never recommend him or his office. I live in Discovery Bay and some days it would take 2 hours to get to Dr. Greys office and 2 hours home. And it was COMPLETELY WORTH IT! It's you body so make sure you're not being lazy, like me with my the first surgery, and go see Dr. Grey. My only wish is that I went to him first! He was very up front, does not over promise, listens to what you have to say and how you feel. He is extremely educated and believes in the products he chooses to use. I appreciate him and the staff for everything and honesty can't wait to see them again!"- S.P. / Yelp / Feb 17, 2020
