SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and permanently eliminates fat. SmartLipo™ uses lasers to create a light beam powerful enough to rupture fat cells and then melt the fat without damaging nearby blood vessels, nerves, and other soft tissues.
The best candidates for SmartLipo™ are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits, such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower abdomen.
Abdomen, face, arms, legs, neck, and body.
Improvement in body proportions and permanent contour changes.
Actual procedure time is approximately 1-2 hours.
Typically, only one treatment is required depending on the number of areas to be treated. Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.
The results from the liposuction procedure are permanent and long lasting. It’s recommended to keep up with preoperative weight, because if you gain weight in the future, the liposity will be added to your figure.
Local anesthesia is used to numb the area. A tiny incision is made about the size of the tip of a pen. The SmartLipo™ laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body. The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes resulting in the fat cells being permanently destroyed. The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening. Because the area is anesthetized, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure. Following SmartLipo™, you may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated.
Varies between 7-14 days depending on the number of areas, the surface area, the anticipated fat removal, and if the fat will be used in other areas. In some cases, it will be recommended to stage the liposuction areas to allow for a more tolerable recovery period and decrease the time under anesthesia for safety precautions.
Side effects of liposuction can bruising, swelling, temporary numbness and discomfort in the treated area.
