Many patients shy away from cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, because they are nervous about a lengthy recovery or severe bruising. Luckily, that has all changed with the laser-assisted treatment known as Smartlipo™. This revolutionary new technology has given cosmetic surgeons unprecedented control over the results of these procedures with reduced swelling, less bruising and a shorter recovery.
If you are ready to finally achieve the thin and toned look you have always wanted without invasive surgery, then consider the benefits of Smartlipo™.
When Traditional Liposuction is Not Enough
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world with hundreds of thousands of surgeries taking place every single year. This procedure can be carried out almost anywhere on the body, but most patients want to have stubborn pockets of fat removed from areas such as their midsection, buttocks and thighs.
The premise of this procedure is actually quite simple. Generally speaking, the excess fat is sucked out of the body.
One of the reasons that liposuction is so popular is because the results can be permanent. As long as the patient stays at a healthy weight or continues to lose weight, they should be able to enjoy their new appearance for the rest of their life.
Unfortunately, recovering from liposuction is not always the most pleasant experience. Patients often need to take two or more weeks off from work as the swelling goes down.
In some cases, patients will also deal with bruising around the treatment site for three weeks or longer. Smartlipo™ is a great way to remove fat as quickly and efficiently as possible using the power of lasers.
Lasers are now being used in a wide variety of treatments ranging from gum contouring to liposuction. Over the years, researchers have found that lasers give surgeons an incredible amount of control when manipulating soft tissue.
The concentrated light is able to effectively seal the affected areas. This results in a shorter recovery with fewer side effects.
Lasers can also be used to partially emulsify soft tissue, such as fat. More of this tissue can be removed without making a longer incision or using a wider cannula.
Smartlipo™ is an excellent option for pockets of stubborn fat around the midsection, as well as delicate treatment areas, such as the neck. The use of a laser also allows the surgeon to carry out the procedure with a local anesthetic instead of a general anesthetic.
As the fat is removed, the laser will begin to seal the soft tissue and tighten the skin while the procedure is being carried out. Just as with traditional liposuction, the results of Smartlipo™ can be permanent with the right changes to one’s lifestyle.
