If you’ve been on any kind of weight loss journey lately, then you know how much time and effort goes into looking and feeling great.

But fitness and health aren’t goals that can simply be abandoned once the immediate results have been reached. Just as a new car or home require maintenance, so does the body, and a lifetime commitment to fitness and healthy eating will pay off greatly later on.

If you’re thinking of celebrating your recent weight loss with a body contouring procedure such as SmartLipo, then it’s a good idea to start thinking proactively about maintaining your results after surgery.

Why Choose SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a gentle type of liposuction technique designed for body contouring, not weight loss. The best candidates are at or near their goal weight, but struggle with overall contour or “problem areas” of fat, commonly found on the hips, thighs, and stomach. Laser lipo can treat all these areas and more, helping to remove localized pockets of fat and tighten skin.

This is a laser-assisted liposuction technique that involves gently melting the fat, which is then suctioned out through a tiny cannula (tube) that has been inserted via a micro incision. No large, traumatic incisions are required, so the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and recovery time is just a few days. Most patients are thrilled with their final results.

Can the Fat Come Back?

Unfortunately, SmartLipo does not make it impossible or even more difficult for the fat to come back after the procedure. Though it does remove fat cells, the remaining cells can easily expand, resulting in weight gain. This is why maintenance is such an important part of SmartLipo treatment.

Make a Commitment to Maintenance

If you’re worried about continuing with your fitness plan after you reach your goals, then SmartLipo could provide a great source of motivation for staying on track. You wouldn’t want to spend money on great results only to find yourself falling off the fitness bandwagon. Make a commitment to maintaining your results, and you can look forward to great results for years to come.
