Technology is advancing in almost every field. Just look at advancements that have been made in the medical field. For example, consider liposuction. Liposuction has been used for many years now to help individuals get rid of unwanted fat. While a lot of people have had success using the treatment, SmartLipo™ offers a modern alternative to traditional liposuction with more benefits and less downtime.
What exactly is SmartLipo™? It is basically laser liposuction. A small tube that has a laser fiber is inserted into an area that is going to be treated. The purpose of the laser fiber is to deliver thermal energy to the treated area, disrupting fatty tissue and fat cells. This makes the targeted fat a lot easier to remove. It is similar to traditional liposuction in the sense that a tube is inserted and fat is removed. However, since the laser melts the fat before it is removed, the procedure is much gentler.
Besides getting rid of fat, SmartLipo™ also helps to improve the condition of your skin. The heat from the laser encourages collagen production in the treated area, which tightens the skin. So, not only do you have slimmer hips or thighs, but they also have a smoother shape.
SmartLipo™ has been extensively studied and used many times. It has been shown time and again to be a safe procedure. It causes far less discomfort and leads to a much shorter recovery period. After you receive this treatment, you do not have to stay in a hospital overnight. It is performed right here in our office. The procedure requires nothing more than a local anesthetic. Just a short time after the procedure is performed, you will be able to go home. We will give you instructions on how to care for the area that received treatment.
Most people who have traditional liposuction are able to see fantastic results after just one treatment. Fortunately, you can also receive fantastic results after just one SmartLipo™ treatment. You will see that treated areas have become much thinner immediately after the surgery. Many of our patients also choose to combine this procedure with VASER® liposuction for even better results. We will help you learn more about both procedures during your consultation with us.
