Smart Lipo

SmartLipo Laser assisted liposuction offers several advantages over traditional liposuction. The laser melts fat making removal less traumatic. The heat from the laser also helps to tighten overlying skin. The procedure results in less bruising and downtime than conventional liposuction and patients usually return to work in three to four days. Ideal patients have a BMI (body mass index) of less than thirty and have small areas of unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a recovery period?
Laser Body Sculpting is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light trauma can occur, but you’ll be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after 2 weeks.

How many treatments are required?
Typically only one treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated.

How does Laser Body Scultping work?
This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Laser Body Sculpting is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, “bra fat,” abdomen, “love handles,” “saddle bags,” inner and outer thighs and knees.

Am I a candidate?
Laser Body Sculpting is meant for areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. The perfect candidate is in good health and of normal body weight.

How does Laser Body Sculpting compare to conventional liposuction?
Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, laser assisted lipolysis is often a perfect complement.
