The SmoothLipo procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction techniques, requiring only local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. Once the area is numb, your specialist will make a small incision to allow for the introduction of a small metal tube, or cannula, which will deliver laser energy to the fat cells and then suck them out of the body for good. Most procedures require no more than an hour.
The SmoothLipo procedure is perfect for men and women with stubborn deposits of fat located in the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, arms, chin, knees, and waist, and can be sued in nearly any area of the body.
The SmoothLipo technique achieves remarkable results with reduced downtime and discomfort by using laser energy to break apart fat cells prior to removing them from the body through suction. As a result, healing time is reduced and the development of new collagen is encouraged, giving the treatment area a firmer appearance overall.
The recovery time for SmoothLipo is relatively brief, with most patients needing only a few days before resuming their regular activities. Immediately after your treatment, you will likely notice some swelling and redness, as well as possible bruising, which should all resolve within one to three days. Your results will be visible right away, and will continue to improve during the following weeks as your body reforms to its new contours.
Generally, you can expect the cost of your SmoothLipo procedure to vary from about $2,000 to $6.000, based on the size of your treatment area and your location.
