You know that we live in a society that puts a lot of emphasis on the way that you look. Thanks to things like social media and smartphone cameras, your image is plastered everywhere. If there are extra pockets of fat on your arms, your legs or your midsection, they may bother you. Stubborn fat that remains resistant to diet and exercise can have a negative impact on your self-esteem. This is why in addition to diet and exercise, many people have turned to SmartLipo™ as a way to get rid of this unwanted fat once and for all.
What Is SmartLipo™?
SmartLipo™ is also referred to as laser-assisted liposuction. With this form of liposuction, a very thin tube that has a laser fiber is inserted into the targeted area. The laser delivers heat energy directly to the fat. The fat cells are broken down, making it easier for them to be removed through the cannula. So, in essence, the laser actually melts the fat before it is removed. At the same time, the heat produced by the laser tightens up the skin and surrounding tissue. The end result is smooth and natural. Fat is removed, and skin is tightened.
Is SmartLipo™ Right for Me?
Ideal candidates for this procedure include those who are near their healthy BMI but have certain areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. SmartLipo™ is designed to help sculpt the body. It is a fat removal procedure, not a weight loss tool.
Common treatment areas include the upper arms, thighs, knees, abdomen, chest and more. Because the procedure allows for great precision, it’s a popular choice among patients who want to target fat in smaller areas.
SmartLipo™ is a very safe procedure. It has been studied, validated and researched more than any other form of laser-assisted liposuction. SmartLipo™ was the first laser-assisted form of liposuction introduced on the market. For decades, it has been shown to provide better results with less discomfort, swelling and downtime than other forms of surgical fat removal.
SmartLipo™ is an outpatient procedure that typically only requires local anesthesia. Most patients can go home the same day. As an added benefit, most people can return to their normal activities within just a few days.
