Have traditional diet and exercise regimens left you short of your goals to remove stubborn areas of fat? For individuals who are in good overall health and close to their ideal weight, SmartLipo™ may be a viable fat reduction solution.
As technology continues to evolve, the decision to undergo minimally invasive body contouring procedures has become far more appealing. SmartLipo is one of the most advanced alternatives to both traditional and tumescent liposuction on the market, utilizing a technique known as laser liposculpture to produce effective results.
SmartLipo is designed to remove localized fat pockets from areas including the waist, chin, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, face, back of neck and pubic mound. A 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser inserted into the skin through a tiny tube melts the fat cells, while simultaneously tightening the surrounding skin. The fat is then suctioned out, leaving slimmed, smoothed results.
The majority of patients who undergo the SmartLipo outpatient procedure experience minimal bleeding, with only mild bruising and numbness that usually subsides within a few days. Healing and recovery time is typically limited to just a few days. Your doctor will provide specific instructions on aftercare, and may prescribe pain medication if needed.
As with most non-surgical body contouring options, optimal results are achieved when patients maintain a healthy weight following the procedure. Improvements are visible immediately, and generally continue to progress for up to three months afterwards. Ideal candidates possess adequate skin elasticity to contract to the body’s new contours.
SmartLipo is not designed as a weight-loss method, although some patients may benefit from its reshaping effects. Those most satisfied with the procedure tend to be happy with their weight prior to surgery. The fat cells removed do not grow back; however, any subsequent weight gain may result in your body storing excess fat in other locations.
If you desire dramatic improvements to your body’s balance, proportion and contour through minimal, subtle adjustments, SmartLipo may be the ideal solution.
