Smartlipo™ is a procedure that involves using a laser to liquefy stubborn fat cells. Once the fat is liquefied, it is removed from the body via suction. Smartlipo™ can be used to remove fat from many areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms. There are many benefits that can be reaped from getting Smartlipo™.
Smartlipo™ is less invasive than traditional liposuction. Doctors are able to make smaller incisions. Additionally, less force is required to remove the fat. Because Smartlipo™ is a less invasive procedure, people who get it are much less likely to experience complications.
People who get Smartlipo™ will be able to get phenomenal results. Most people will be able to instantly notice a difference after treatment. The most drastic results will typically be noticed within one to three months of treatment. However, it is important to note that results can vary from patient to patient.
The areas of the body that are treated, the amount of fat removed and the age of the patient are some of the factors that affect how long it takes for one to see results. Individual healing speeds can vary also. Younger patients have a tendency to heal faster and see results quicker than older patients. Additionally, some people have a tendency to retain fluid, and this can also affect how long it takes to see the final results.
Smartlipo™ vs. Liposuction
Traditional liposuction often requires a lengthy recovery time. However, patients who get Smartlipo™ will be able to recover much more quickly. They will also have less discomfort, swelling and bruising during the recovery process. The amount of time that it takes to recover can vary from patient to patient. However, many patients are able to return to work within one or two days of getting Smartlipo™.
Reduced Risk of Scarring
Scarring is one of the many possible complications of traditional liposuction. However, patients who get Smartlipo™ are much less likely to experience scarring. The reason that Smartlipo™ is less likely to cause scarring is because it is less invasive.
Can Contour the Body
Smartlipo™ not only helps reduce fat, but it can also contour the body in the process. Surgeons are able to shape and smooth the problem areas of the body. Smartlipo™ is better at smoothing and shaping the body than traditional liposuction.
