If you are looking for ways to get rid of unwanted bulges of fat on your body, you have quite a few options to consider. There are a variety of non-invasive and non-surgical options that you can consider. While these options are usually effective, you do not get immediate results, and the results may not always be exactly what you hoped for.
There are also some surgical methods that can be used in order to get rid of fat from the body. One of the most popular surgical methods for removing unwanted fat from the body is liposuction. It has been used for many years now, and the technology and techniques used for liposuction are continuing to improve. Traditional liposuction can benefit you, but there are a lot of risks that you need to consider. You will also have quite a bit of downtime after treatment.
A great alternative to traditional liposuction is Smartlipo™. This is a body contouring procedure that uses laser-assisted lipolysis in order to target pockets of fat on the body. The great thing about this procedure is that it is able to eliminate fat in many trouble areas.
Since the fat is more easily removed, Smartlipo™ is a great option for individuals who have problem areas on their body that do not respond to diet and exercise. We have met many patients who have worked so hard to stick to a diet and exercise plan, but have felt unsatisfied with the results afterward because their body was not what they expected. Smartlipo™ has been able to give them fantastic results.
So, you may be wondering why you should use Smartlipo™ as opposed to traditional liposuction. The answer is simple. You will experience less discomfort, you will have less downtime and you will get better results. In addition, this procedure only requires local anesthesia. Since a local anesthetic is used as opposed to general anesthesia, you do not have so many risks to consider.
Individuals who have used traditional liposuction have commented on the fact that the procedure was very traumatic. They had a lot of bruising, swelling and discomfort in the area that received treatment. The great thing about Smartlipo™ is that it uses a very tiny instrument. The laser fiber is inserted through this instrument and safely ruptures the fat cell membranes. This causes them to be permanently destroyed. Then, the liquefied fat is very gently removed.
The Smartlipo™ procedure can even benefit the skin. It actually helps to tighten it because of coagulation. This means that the skin will not dimple or sag.
As you can see, Smartlipo™ has various benefits. At Medical Aesthetics of New England, Dr. Walter is proud to combine this procedure with VASER® liposuction for incredible results.
