If you are interested in getting a body that you can feel proud to show off, you probably try to live a healthy lifestyle. You regularly exercise and eat a healthy diet. However, you may have come to the frustrating realization that despite your best efforts, certain stubborn pockets of fat on your body simply refuse to budge. In an effort to get the body you’ve been working so hard to achieve, you may have considered different cosmetic procedures designed to help get rid of those pockets of fat. SmartLipo™ may be the right option for you.
One of the best things about SmartLipo™ is that not only is it an effective method of fat removal, but it can also tighten the skin in the areas being treated thanks to the tightening that results from tissue coagulation during the treatment. This means that you are essentially getting two treatments in one.
Since SmartLipo™ uses laser energy to heat and liquefy the unwanted fat before removing it, patients who choose this procedure typically enjoy a shorter downtime period than those who undergo traditional liposuction. The process also coagulates the blood vessels in the treated areas, further contributing the lessened downtime.
This safe, FDA-approved treatment provides lasting results for good candidates. Good candidates include those who are at or within close range of their ideal weight but cannot get rid of certain stubborn areas of fat through diet and exercise alone. They are also in generally good health, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is also important to keep up your diet and exercise routine once your treatment is finished, as this ensures the best results. Patients who maintain their healthy lifestyles after receiving the procedure often find that they never have to deal with their problem areas again.
Of course, the best way to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure is to come in for an initial consultation. We can discuss your areas of concern with you and help you determine if SmartLipo™ is the best treatment for you. If it is, we can then develop a treatment plan customized for your needs. For those interested in exploring all of their options, we also offer traditional and tumescent liposuction.
