Smart lipo is an amazing new way that you can have unwanted body fat removed with minimal pain. There are no bulky tubes or uncomfortable office visits that were once necessary for liposuction, because SmartLipo has smaller instruments and a unique technology that zaps fat cells for contouring and reshaping areas of the that include the abdomen, love handles, backs, thighs, hips, knees, arms, neck and chin.
Your surgeon will fill the targeted area with buffered lidocaine, a numbing agent. This solution will not only numb the site, but will shrink your blood vessels as well. The laser is inserted into the skin and heats the fat cells to 45 degrees centigrade, resulting in a breakdown of membranes and release of liquid fat. A small incision is made in the area and tiny tubes are inserted to suck out the dissolved fat cells. As the laser melts the fats, it also coagulates the loose ends of small blood vessels. Compression garments are optional as the area will not bleed very much after the laser is removed. The healing-tissues do the rest of the work in contracting the treated area as well as the overlying skin.
