Smart Lipo

As more women and men begin their quest for an overall better well being, body contouring and Lipo-sculpture have grown in status, making liposuction the most sought after cosmetic surgery that is performed today.

About SmartLipo, this is the first and only laser-assisted lipolysis application that submits a revolutionary and minimally invasive process for removing fat. Using a high-powered laser, body sculpting procedures now have less down time and side effects than traditional liposuction.

The Procedure

Your cosmetic surgeon will insert a tiny cannula, or tube, approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber into your skin. The tube is moved back and forth allowing the laser's energy to target the fat cells, causing them to burst and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis so that it is able to shrink the collagen.

This is a minimally invasive procedure and that is performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to clot instantaneously when they are touched, which results in less bleeding, swelling and bruising, and a more rapid recovery time than conventional liposuction. Because there is no need for general anesthesia, the procedure is extremely safe with only minimal side effects.

Usually only on treatment is necessary and the procedure itself usually takes between 45 minutes to one hour for each area that needs to be treated.

SmartLipo can be a great addition to traditional liposuction procedures and it is perfect for treating the smaller areas of your face, neck, arms, knees, back, bra strap, mons pubis, breasts, and any other area that has loose and/or flabby skin.

This procedure also works well to improve your body's shape and can improve cellulite to some degree and can tighten any sagging skin that you may have issues with. You should be able to see the results right away with continued enhancement over several months.

For more information about SmartLipo you should contact a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Whether its SmartLipo or another cosmetic procedure, a doctor in your area can help you decide what treatment options are best for you.
