Many individuals are dealing with problem areas on their body where they have unwanted pockets of fat. The first thing that most people do is use exercise to get rid of the fat. However, not everyone finds success using this method. Some pockets of fat on the body are stubborn and resist exercise and diet. If you are in this situation, we invite you to learn how you can target fat with SmartLipo™.
The first thing that you should know about SmartLipo™ is that it is not designed to help individuals who have a lot of weight to lose. It is designed to treat specific pockets of fat on the body. It is a pinpointed treatment that will help you get rid of stubborn bulges of fat on parts of the body.
You may be wondering what the difference is between SmartLipo™ and traditional liposuction. This is a laser-assisted liposuction that melts the fat before suctioning it out of the body. With traditional liposuction, an instrument is used to scrape the fat from the skin. SmartLipo™ offers the benefit of having the fat removed in a gentler and even way. Additionally, it provides the benefit of tightening the skin in the area where the treatment is performed.
Since SmartLipo™ is less traumatic, patients will not have the same amount of downtime. In most cases, a patient only needs days to recover after SmartLipo™. After traditional liposuction, many patients need at least a couple of weeks of downtime.
Since heat is used to melt the fat, it provides the benefit of tightening the skin. Many who have used traditional liposuction have had the disappointing side effect of having less fat in an area that receives treatment but then dealing with sagging skin. Since SmartLipo™ removes the fat and tightens the skin, it is unlikely that you will have to use a lift procedure in the years after this procedure.
