Your SmartLipo MPX procedure will being with the administration of a local anesthetic, which will be used to numb the treatment area to prevent potential discomfort during the procedure. Once numb, your specialist will make a small incision near the treatment area to allow for insertion of a small, hollow tube, called a cannula. The cannula will be used to deliver laser energy to liquefy fat cells, and to suction away the resulting liquid. Most procedures take less than an hour and are performed on an outpatient basis.
The SmartLipo MPX procedure is an ideal treatment for areas of stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. The treatment also tightens skin and encourages collagen development in the treatment area, resulting in a firmer overall appearance over time.
The Smartlipo MPX system relies on the combined effects of two types of laser energy to offer a wider spectrum of treatment technology, resulting in optimal fat breakdown and overall skin tightening.
The SmartLipo MPX technology results in less swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction, and most patients can return to their usual routines within a few days of treatment. There may be some initial swelling and redness which will resolve within a few days. Your initial results will be evident immediately, and will improve during the following weeks as skin becomes tighter and firmer and your body adapts to its new lines
The cost of SmartLipo MPX is comparable to other types of liposuction, with most procedures ranging from $2,500 to $6,000 and up, depending upon the size of the treatment area.
