If stubborn pounds or inches have crept up on you, even with a good diet and regular exercise, laser liposuction using SmartlipoTM might be ideal for you.
This safe and effective FDA approved procedure for the removal of unwanted fat has been one of the most popular procedures in every plastic surgeon’s office in America since 2007.
What is Smartlipo?
This unique technology uses a high-energy light beam, or laser, to heat up fat cells and coagulate blood vessels, offering patients many benefits over traditional liposuction:
- Less bruising
- Fast recovery time
- No general anesthesia
- Skin tightening
- Less blood loss during surgery
- Minimal post-op discomfort
- Instant loss of unwanted fat & inches
For these reasons, laser lipo is much safer than traditional liposuction, which uses no heat. In heat-free liposuction, the cannula is manually inserted repeatedly into the treatment areas, breaking up the fat little by little and damaging nerves and blood vessels. This damage causes discomfort, blood loss, and post-op bruising and swelling.
Additionally, general anesthesia must be used, raising the risks of the procedure as well as the cost.
How Smartlipo is Different
With laser lipo, however, the heat from the laser beam targets just the fat, leaving surrounding tissue largely undisturbed. The fat melts away as the laser touches it, leaving an oily residue that is gently suctioned out by a tiny cannula.
Additionally, since general anesthesia isn’t used during this procedure, the patient’s costs are lowered (no anesthesiologist needed) and the procedure is much safer because local anesthetic eliminates the risks associated with general anesthesia.
An added bonus is that healing time is reduced by at least one week, allowing patients to get back to their busy lives.
