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
"This review is about Lalena and her very smart assistance. I had Body Tite done by another doctor and was left with 4 noticeable scars. Lalena was the ONLY person who knew how to address these scars. Thank you Lalena for being so smart, kind, and taking the time to listen to my concerns."- E.M. / Yelp / Sep 04, 2020

"I don’t even know where to begin. Doing breast augmentation with Dr. Gray is the best decision I have ever made. The confidence I have gained was unimaginable.Dr. Gray is extremely intelligent and goes through all of your options with great detail. He is thorough and takes the time to answer questions. I am 5’5" 120lbs and was a 32A. I wanted big enough boobs so people noticed, but not too big and end up looking top-heavy. Dr. Gray did 475cc (Mentor HP) and now I am a 34D and I am in love with the results!!! The consent was for anywhere from 400cc-500cc and he could not have done a better job at selecting the appropriate size for me. Of course he will go over all of this with you and explain why he leaves wiggle room on the consent. (Like I said, he is extremely intelligent and there’s a reason why he does the things the way he does, just listen to him!) It’s not like he’s just trying to pump you with as much as he can.. My boobs are totally proportionate with the rest of my body and they are the perfect size for me. The facility itself is beautiful. His office, pre-op, OR, and recovery room are all in the same suite, making it convenient and easy. The view from the OR is incredible and relaxing. Dr. Gray offers FREE consultations, unlike most plastic surgeons offices, but I believe it’s because he is so confident in his work that you will feel it too and book your surgery with him. I booked my surgery immediately after my consultation, and my biggest regret is not getting it done sooner!! Thank you so so so so much Dr. Gray and Cherisse!"- D.H. / Yelp / Sep 02, 2020
"I loved my experience with Dr. Gray and his staff, I Highly recommend going here. Doctor Gray is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions or concerns you may have... coming from someone who has major anxiety, the whole staff was understanding and helpful throughout my surgery and recovery process. I will definitely be coming back for any other procedures I am interested in doing. Thanks again Team!"- J.K. / Yelp / Sep 01, 2020
