What is SmartLipo MPX?
SmartLipo MPX is a new technique which builds on the highly popular and effective SmartLipo technology. The technique uses two types of laser energy to remove fat and tighten skin in one procedure. By using two different types of laser energy, more fat can be liquefied and men and women can see results more quickly, with less downtime.
What makes SmartLipo MPX so effective?
By using both laser energies in one procedure, results are more dramatic and can be achieved in a single procedure with less downtime.
Who is a candidate for SmartLipo MPX?
Any man or woman who has pockets of fat that do not respond to regular diet and exercise is a potential candidate for the SmartLipo MPX procedure. An ideal candidate is also in good health, within 20 to 25 pounds of their ideal weight, and is looking for a procedure that offers effective results with less downtime than traditional liposuction techniques.
Which area is Smart Lipo MPX useful for?
SmartLipo MPX is an excellent choice for treating pockets of fatty tissue located in many areas of the body, including:
• upper arms
• other areas with isolated pockets of fat and loose skin
Who is not a candidate for SmartLipo MPX ?
Individuals who are significantly overweight would do well to lose some weight before undergoing SmartLipo MPX. Also, men and women with certain immune or bleeding disorders, or those who are on certain types of medications, are not good candidates. You should discuss any medications and health conditions with your physician prior to undergoing treatment.
Is the fat removal permanent?
The fat cells removed with the SmartLipo MXP technique are gone forever; however, you can still form fatty deposits in localized areas if you gain a significant amount of weight in the months and years following the procedure.
How is the procedure performed?
Prior to your procedure, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area. Once the area is numb, a small incision will be made and a thin tube, called a cannula, will be inserted beneath the skin into the fatty area. The cannula is moved back and forth to break apart fat cells allowing them to drain away. At the same time, the laser energy is directed at the treatment area to tighten skin and promote the development of new collagen. For most individuals, the procedure takes from 45 minutes to three hours.
What is the recovery like?
You may experience some bruising or swelling following the procedure, which usually resolves within one to five days. Many patients return to their normal routines immediately after the procedure.
When will I begin to see results?
You’ll notice initial results immediately following your procedure, and the results will continue to improve for several months as your skin reforms around your new contours.
Can SmartLipo MPX be used with Liposuction?
SmartLipo MPX can be used with traditional liposuction techniques, to treat smaller, more localized pockets of fat which do not respond well to traditional liposuction procedures.
What are the advantages of SmartLipo MPX over other procedures?
The SmartLipo MPX procedure offers several advantages over other techniques, including:
• less discomfort during the procedure and during recovery
• less trauma to the treatment area
• less bruising and swelling postop
• less bleeding during the procedure
• faster recovery
• ability to successfully treat stubborn, hard-to-treat pockets of fat
