What is SmartLipo™?
SmartLipo™ is a minimally-invasive body sculpting procedure that combines traditional liposuction techniques and laser lipolysis into one convenient treatment. This body contouring method is FDA-approved and ideal for treating fat in the face, necks, arms, thighs, abdomen, and knees. It’s particularly ideal for patients that want to reap the benefits of a traditional liposuction procedure without the extensive downtime that usually comes with it.
How Does it Work?
SmartLipo™ procedures can either take place in one or two steps depending on the size and severity of the treatment area. Before surgery, patients are typically administered a local anesthetic. Once this anesthetic has adequately numbed the treatment area, a laser fiber is inserted using a cannula. It is passed over the cells, heating them up to the point that they begin to coagulate. This helps lessen the downtime that is typically associated with liposuction procedures alone.
For small treatment areas like the face and neck, SmartLipo™ alone can be used to tighten and tone the skin. For larger treatment areas like the arms, legs, and abdomen, it is used in combination with traditional liposuction techniques.
What are the Benefits of SmartLipo™?
When compared to traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ offers patients a number of unique and advantageous benefits, including:
- Effective body sculpting results
- Minimal bruising
- Faster healing
- Less discomfort during treatment
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for SmartLipo™ are in good health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. It’s important to keep in mind that while SmartLipo™ can help sculpt and slim the body, it is not a method for extra weight loss. This procedure works best for individuals that are at or close to their ideal body weight.
