Body Sculpting with Smartlipo

Do you eat well and exercise regularly but still have problem areas that refuse to tone up? Laser body sculpting can remove unwanted fat around the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, abdomen, inner and outer thighs and knees. Smartlipo liposuction is meant for healthy individuals of normal weight who are tired of working hard, eating right and unable to lose stores of fat in some areas.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

Laser-assisted lipolysis is an in-office procedure, performed under local anesthesia and sedation.  The laser is a one millimeter cannula (or tube) that is inserted under the skin. The laser fiber delivers energy under the skin directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and liquefy. A small liposuction cannula is then used to remove the liquefied fat. Simultaneously, the laser treats the under surface of the skin, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.

How is Smartlipo Different?

Compared to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo laser body contouring is less invasive and more effective. Traditional liposuction can remove large pockets of fat, but often leaves behind large areas of sagging skin. With Smartlipo laser body sculpting, skin is also tightened in the area resulting in a smoother look. Since laser liposuction is less invasive, patients also have a shorter recovery period. Most people return to work in a few days and to exercising in about two weeks.

 

What to Expect

Unlike traditional liposuction, procedures with Smartlipo usually require only local anesthesia and a few days of recovery. Some light trauma can occur, but because laser body sculpting is minimally invasive, you will be back to your normal routine very quickly. You will begin to see results after a week with continued improvement in the next three to six months.
