Vista Liposculpture

Do you want to look and feel better about yourself? If so, then body contouring and liposculpture may be for you. SmartLipo uses a laser to remove fat, sculpt body contours and tighten skins with less downtime and side-effects than traditional liposuction. If you are considering liposculpture, there are several cosmetic surgeons in Vista who can assist you with the procedure of your choice.

Smartlipo is a great way to treat localized deposits of unwanted fat, fat tissue irregularities and for coagulating tissue leading to a tightening effect. It works great for treating small areas of the face, neck, arms, male breasts, and other areas of loose or flabby skin.

Improving Your Body's Contour

If you want liposuction to improve your body's contour and have tried every diet known to man and a multitude of exercise programs, and those problem areas just won't go away, then liposculpture may be for you. It is important to realize that suction lipectomy is not a method of weight reduction in itself, as relatively little weight of fat is removed from the body when the surgery is performed safely. The procedure is designed specifically to improve body contour. Therefore, it is important for you to be as close to your target goal weight as possible.

Liposuction will not change the appearance of your skin. If your skin is loose, dimpled, wrinkled, or has multiple depressions or waves prior to surgery, it will not be improved following surgery. Basically, if you have firm elastic skin with minimal wrinkling and redundancy, with well-controlled and stable weight, and with limited areas of fatty tissue excess, that you will receive the best results. Localized deposits of excess fat in the hips and "saddle bag" areas, as well as inner and outer thigh areas, are where you will see the most improvement.

Anesthesia and Recovery

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. With this technique, the small blood vessels coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising ? and a quicker recovery time. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, the procedure is very safe, with only minimal side effects.

Treatments and Cost

For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. SmartLipo is not for everyone and only a discussion with a cosmetic surgeon will enable you to decide whether you want to have SmartLipo done. The average cost is $5,000 and a typical visit will last about one hour.
