Stubborn fat can develop nearly anywhere on the body. Even those of us with the most dedicated diet and exercise regimens can struggle with stubborn fat, which is often one of the few things getting in the way of reaching our cosmetic goals. Some people turn to liposuction to address stubborn, unwanted fat, although the scarring and downtime involved deter many patients. SmartLipo™ is a new, less-invasive liposuction alternative that can help eliminate stubborn fat in many of the areas where liposuction is commonly used.
Where Can SmartLipo™ Be Used?
SmartLipo™ treatment can be used in the following areas:
What is the SmartLipo™ Treatment Like?
Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ can be performed in-office using only local anesthesia. During treatment, a small laser fiber is inserted into the skin using an incision. Incisions made during the SmartLipo™ treatment are small and discreet, so patients can expect minimal scarring. The laser component of SmartLipo™ helps to melt fat, which makes it easier to remove from the body. This results in a more comfortable treatment that creates less bruising and swelling. Additionally, the laser component tightens the skin, resulting in a firmer appearance after the fat is eliminated. You may feel a warm sensation or slight pressure in the treatment area during the procedure. After the procedure, it is common to experience some soreness and swelling. However, these side effects usually fade within a week, and you will be able to return to normal activities within just a few days. Results are noticeable after one week and will continue to improve for up to six months.
