What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that uses state-of-the-art laser technology to banish fat permanently from tough-to-lose spots that are resistant to diet and exercise. Smartlipo also tightens the skin through coagulation, so once the fat is removed, you don’t need to worry about dimpling and sagging skin.
What areas of my body can SmartLipo treat?
SmartLipo can eradicate fat deposits on:
What does a SmartLipo session entail?
First, your skin is cleaned and prepped with a local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. Next, a small tube is inserted through a fine incision in the targeted area. The tube delivers thermal energy that melts fat cells, which are then easily removed through suction.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes about two hours for most patients. Time varies depending on the amount of fat to being removed and the number of areas being treated.
Is treatment painful?
Treatment is not painful. Some patients experience minor pressure during the procedure. And afterward, there may be some tenderness that should remedy within a few days.
What are the advantages of SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is quickly becoming the preferred alternative to traditional liposuction for many reasons. For starters, results become apparent within a week and continue to improve over the following 3-6 months. Also, recovery is simple. In fact, most patients resume their routine activities quickly, sans the swelling and bruising experienced with other fat-removal procedures. Additionally, any scarring is unnoticeable due to the extremely small incision site.
How long will my results last?
SmartLipo results are permanent. That means if you maintain your weight and healthy lifestyle habits, the benefits of this procedure will last a lifetime.
