If you’ve tried everything to lose that stubborn fat and nothing seems to work, SmartLipo can give you the body you have always wanted. SmartLipo is ideal for those areas of the body that have pockets of unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. But what exactly is SmartLipo, and how does it work.
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a minimally invasive laser-assisted liposuction procedure that contours and reshapes the body, using a combination of laser energy and liposuction. The laser energy breaks down and melts the unwanted fat cells, and they are then removed with a micro-cannula.
SmartLipo is commonly used on the face to sculpt the chin and neck, in addition to the arms, abdomen, inner thighs, knees, and ankles.
SmartLipo is a less invasive treatment than traditional liposuction, and is performed under local anesthesia. There are fewer side-effects associated with SmartLipo when compared to traditional liposuction, because there is less bruising and bleeding. The recovery time is also shorter.
What to expect
Most patients are able to return to work within 1-2 days of SmartLipo treatment. Patients will notice a difference in their body about 7 days after the procedure, and improvements will continue for several months.
How SmartLipo works
The area being targeted is numbed and small incisions are made through which the laser fiber is inserted into the subcutaneous fat. The laser heats and melts the fat, which is subsequently removed using a suction. The heat from the laser also tightens the skin to achieve smoother contours, and helps to reduce cellulite pockets.
