As you become older, you may develop frustrating pockets of unwanted fat on your stomach, arms, and other areas of your body. Reducing this fat with diet and exercise programs can be very difficult, but you can minimize your unwanted fat and achieve a more attractive look with Smart Lipo. At Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare in Harrisonburg, Virginia, we can use this minimally invasive treatment to enhance your appearance in a safe, effective manner.
What Makes Smart Lipo Different? 13 Things to Know
1. It’s a Versatile Treatment
Unlike cosmetic treatments that can only affect a limited area, this technique can be used to reduce fat in many different areas of your body. In fact, this fat reduction method is excellent at addressing those frustrating pockets of fat that you can’t reduce with lifestyle changes.
For instance, it can remove fat on your abdomen, buttocks, and legs. This treatment can also improve the appearance of your arms, face, and neck. During your initial consultation, we will examine your target area and talk about the pockets of fat that you would like to reduce. We will tell you if this treatment can reduce fat in your desired location.
2. It Tightens Your Skin
Many traditional liposuction methods will not improve your skin. Since these procedures remove fat without tightening your skin, you may have deflated, sagging skin after your liposuction procedure is complete. In contrast to these older methods, Smart Lipo will tighten your skin and remove your fat at the same time.
During your treatment, we will apply thermal heat to your target area. This process will encourage your body to make more collagen and improve the condition of your current collagen bands. Collagen is a very important protein that helps your skin stay firm and healthy. Improving your collagen production may strengthen and tighten your skin. As a result, your skin may look firmer and more attractive once you achieve the full benefits of this fat removal process.
3. It Addresses a Difficult Issue
Losing fat and improving your body can be an extremely challenging task. There are a number of reasons why you may struggle to reduce unwanted fat on your own.
Your Fat Cells
You might believe that you can lose unwanted fat cells by eating better and exercising more frequently. This is not accurate. Your overall number of fat cells is mostly determined during your adolescence. When you gain weight, your fat cells will expand. When you lose weight, your fat cells will shrink. However, your overall number of fat cells does not change. As a result, you may struggle to permanently reduce unwanted fat on your legs, arms, and other areas of your body.
The Aging Process
You may also have increasing difficulty reducing your fat as you become older. You may have additional responsibilities at your job or at your home that keep you from exercising regularly. Further, the aging process may slow your metabolism and make your body cling to your fat deposits. Your hormones may also change, and this can cause your body to store fat on your stomach, legs, and other places.
A Helping Hand
Fortunately, you don’t have to address this issue on your own. During your Smart Lipo treatment, we will use a sophisticated technique to reduce your excess fat. Since this technique permanently eliminates these fat cells, it may help you achieve more lasting improvements in your physique. Further, unlike many diet and exercise programs, this technique can be used to target fat in your desired area. This targeted approach may significantly improve your appearance.
4. It Provides Lasting Results
Many cosmetic treatments temporarily improve your appearance. As a result, you must receive regular maintenance treatments to keep up your new look. Receiving these follow-up treatments can be very time-consuming and frustrating. You may not be able to fit these treatments into your busy schedule. Further, the cost of repeated treatments can also add up very quickly.
A More Permanent Change
Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with these issues when you choose this fat reduction method. Since this treatment permanently removes excess fat from your body, it can provide you with significant, lasting results.
Maintaining Your Improvements
Although this treatment provides lasting results, it does not stop you from gaining weight if you adopt an unhealthy lifestyle in the future. As a result, you may be happiest with the results of your treatment if you maintain your weight and follow a healthy lifestyle after you use this fat reduction method. In fact, you may be motivated to exercise more and eat better once you see the full benefits of your treatment.
5. It Uses Thermal Energy to Reduce Fat
This treatment uses a sophisticated approach to reduce your unwanted fat. During your treatment session, we will clean your skin. Next, we will apply local anesthesia to your target area. This anesthesia will numb this area of your body and help you remain comfortable during the fat removal process.
We will begin the fat reduction process by making a tiny incision in your target area. Once we have completed this process, we will place a small tube in this area of your body. We will use this tube to send thermal energy to your target area. The thermal energy will melt fat cells in your target area and make these cells easier to remove. After we have melted the cells, we will use suction energy to eliminate them from your body. This process may take about two hours to complete.
6. It’s a Comfortable Process
Many traditional liposuction procedures are very taxing on your body. This innovative liposuction method is much gentler. Although you may feel some minor pressure during the fat removal process, this sensation is easy to tolerate. As a result, this treatment is an excellent way to reduce your unwanted fat in a gentle manner.
7. It Has a Short Recovery Time
Traditional liposuction procedures often have a lengthy recovery time. You may not be able to work, do household chores, exercise, or engage in other activities for a significant period of time after your procedure is complete.
This innovative method uses a more advanced technique to remove your fat. Liquifying your fat with thermal energy makes the removal process much easier. As a result, this treatment usually has a shorter recovery period than a traditional liposuction procedure. You may be able to quickly return to your job, exercise program, and other routines.
8. It Provides Fast Results
This fat removal method may improve your body more quickly than traditional liposuction methods. Since everyone’s body is unique, your individual results will vary. That said, you may see positive changes in your body within a week of receiving your treatment. You may see the full benefits of this treatment after three to six months.
9. It Doesn’t Require a Large Incision
With traditional liposuction methods, your medical provider must make a large incision to insert a sizeable tube into your body. This incision may create a noticeable scar on your treatment area. Unlike traditional liposuction, this innovative technology can be performed through a very small incision. As a result, you may not have a noticeable scar after your treatment is complete.
10. It’s Very Safe
Although this treatment sounds very modern, it has actually been used for over a decade. Further, medical professionals have been studying this liposuction technique for many years. Scientific evidence shows that this technique may help you recover more quickly and comfortably than traditional liposuction methods. Accordingly, you can feel confident when you choose this method to reduce your unwanted fat.
11. It Has Proven Results
You might be worried that an innovative fat reduction method won’t actually improve your body. In particular, you might have heard about fat reduction treatments that provide underwhelming results. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about this issue when you choose this liposuction method. There is ample scientific evidence showing that this liposuction technique can significantly improve your body. Feel free to ask us all about this at your consultation.
12. It Can Improve Your Look Before a Big Day
Since this treatment works fairly quickly, it may be a great way to improve your look before a special day. For instance, you might want to look slimmer and more attractive before your wedding day.
You should tell us if you would like to achieve the full benefits of your fat reduction treatment by a certain date. We can schedule your treatment so that your body has time to renew itself and heal before your special day.
13. It Works for Lots of People
Since this treatment is so quick and simple, it’s an ideal option for a wide variety of people. If you are a healthy adult who would like to reduce pockets of excess fat on your body, you may be thrilled with the results of this treatment. Further, this treatment is a great way to address fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise.
People With Health Conditions
Although this treatment works for many people, it is not suitable for everyone. In particular, if you have hypertension, diabetes, or a cardiovascular condition, you may not be a suitable candidate for this treatment. Further, this fat reduction method may not be right for you if you are over sixty. Your medical provider can help you determine whether you can receive this treatment.
Like traditional liposuction, this technique is not a weight-loss method. As a result, you may be unable to use this treatment if you are very overweight. If you would like to lose a significant amount of weight, our medical weight loss management program may be a better choice.
During this program, we will provide you with a customized diet and exercise plan and use lab work to determine if you should be taking specific vitamins or supplements. In addition, we will provide you with practical support and guidance during your weight loss journey.
Choosing a Treatment
During your initial consultation, we will examine your body and talk about your overall health. We will also discuss the changes that you would like to achieve in your target areas. We can help you determine whether a Smart Lipo treatment or weight loss management program can help you achieve your desired outcome.
