We all know what the usual suspects are when it comes to liposuction treatment areas: the stomach, thighs, and hips. Until more modern methods for the procedure were introduced, these large areas were the only parts of the body that could be treated with liposuction.

Fortunately, new technology is always emerging, bringing exciting treatment options with it. SmartlipoTM, one of the most popular liposuction methods available today, is widely praised for its gentle, minimally invasive method and great results.

One of the major benefits of this liposuction method is the ability to treat areas that were previously too small or too delicate to improve with older methods, such as the knees.

Unusual Treatment Area?

People are often insecure about unusual areas of the body, because fat can settle just about anywhere. An area such as the knees can be difficult to reach with traditional weight loss methods such as diet and exercise.

Many people are interested in Smartlipo for the knees, often extending up to the thighs or down to the calves and ankles. The legs and knees can be an area that develops stubborn fat. Smartlipo is ideal for this purpose, creating a smoother contour to the legs and tightening loose skin.

Why It’s Possible

Unlike old liposuction methods, Smartlipo does not involve large incisions to break up the fat, which is a technique that would be far too traumatic for a delicate area such as the knees.

Instead, Smartlipo involves only very tiny incisions, which are used to access the area, allowing the surgeon to insert a tube with laser fiber inside it. This laser melts the fat, which is then suctioned out using the same tube.

Because the procedure is so gentle, only local anesthesia is required to keep the patient comfortable. Downtime is just a few days, and patients typically feel like they’ve completed a tough workout following surgery.
