In our SmartLipo Long Island and NYC practices, patients can improve the appearance of their body contours through this effective cosmetic treatment. Those who come to visit us are just a small portion of the population that has an interest in cosmetic procedures.
In many cases, what holds people back from actively investigating a procedure such as laser liposuction is their false assumption that they are not a good candidate for this treatment.
Laser liposuction, which is performed in our SmartLipo Long Island surgical center, is a suitable treatment for just about anyone. The treatment, aided by laser technology, can improve the appearance of problem areas such as the thighs, hips, love handles, bra strap area, tummy and upper arms.
Because of the small size of the tools used in laser liposuction, this procedure can even now be performed under the chin.
How it Works
This treatment is designed to remove small pockets of fat that have proven to be resistant to diet and exercise. Using heat energy created from the laser, stubborn fat is melted and subsequently suctioned from the area being treated.
Because fat is removed in liquid form rather than solid, there is less bleeding that occurs during the procedure. The results of laser liposuction are vastly improved body contours with very little down time. In the end, our patients report a heightened degree of self-confidence after receiving their laser liposuction treatment.
As stated, the procedure is designed to remove stubborn fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise. Therefore, the ideal candidate for laser liposuction will already be at a healthy weight that he or she is happy with. The procedure is not meant to remove large amounts of excess fat and is not a form of weight loss.
The patient will, ideally, already maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and be in good general health. Results are as long lasting as the patient desires, so motivation to extend them is key to long-term success. Lastly, expectations play a large role in overall satisfaction with the procedure.
Individualized Treatment Plans
In our SmartLipo Long Island practice, as well as in our body sculpting NYC office located in Manhattan, each patient is treated to a free consultation during which he or she can discuss their desired results with their surgeon. During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history in order to help the doctor determine any risk factors and your overall candidacy of the procedure.
During this initial appointment, you will get a good idea of what to expect from the procedure itself, the recovery time, and the long-term results. In this way, each patient is able to feel fully confident in moving forward with treatment.
Through laser liposuction, patients are able to receive better body contours through the permanent removal of stubborn fat cells. Due to the technology and expertise applied, recovery time with SmartLipo is greatly minimized compared to traditional liposuction.
With a healthy lifestyle and realistic expectations, the patient will undoubtedly gain a renewed sense of confidence in his or her body. Contact The Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team in our Long Island or Manhattan offices for your free and personalized consultation.
