SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes laser technology as a laser lipolysis for liposuction and body sculpting to give both men and women a lean appearance. This body contouring is a more popular choice over traditional liposuction, as it’s much safer and offers better aesthetic outcomes. This process spurs collagen production while tightening skin in the areas of the body that are treated.
SmartLipo targets fat cells on parts of the body that are resistant to exercise and diet alone. It is designed to cause fat reduction in targeted and discreet areas of the body with minimal invasiveness.
How Does SmartLipo Work?
SmartLipo machines have two laser frequencies to provide a surgeon with power to remove excess fat cells without damaging soft tissues such as blood vessels and skin. The original liposuction techniques caused damage to these tissues and had a much longer recovery time. The SmartLipo laser actually liquefies fat cells so they can be suctioned out by a very small cannula than the one used in traditional liposuction, meaning smaller incisions with less chance of scars.
What Are the Advantages of SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is often chosen by patients because of its many advantages over other procedures. Laser lipolysis is much more effective than other methods of sculpting your body, and it promotes tissue coagulation that results in tissue tightening, so there is no need for another procedure to remove excess skin left behind. The recovery time is minimal with less swelling or bruising, so you can return to work quickly. This process is customized exactly to each patient’s need for a personal touch in body sculpting.
What Areas Can SmartLipo Be Used On?
Most any area of the body can be a target for SmartLipo, even on your face to eliminate a double chin. Other areas include the neck, chest or breast, abdomen, waist, back, and hips. It is also used on both the inner and outer thighs, the jaw line, and male breasts.
What Is the Recovery Time from SmartLipo?
You should follow your doctor’s instructions when recovering from this procedure. You will most likely wear a compression garment for a few weeks following your procedure. It supports the tissues in your body as they heal.
Who Is a Good Candidate for SmartLipo?
To find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment, schedule an appointment for an initial consultation. The general guidelines for this procedure state that you should be in good health, as well as already tried diet and exercise but still have areas that don’t respond. You should have realistic expectations and realize that SmartLipo is not a treatment for obesity, but rather a body sculpting procedure.
