If you have excess body fat in just about any area – the stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, or hips – Smartlipo™ can help. Some people even elect to have Smartlipo performed on their neck, face, chest, jowls, or knees.
This innovative procedure removes excess fat and firms loose skin. The procedure offers a relatively quick solution to those troublesome spots and is thus really popular among people looking to achieve a slimmer, more streamlined physique. Smartlipo may just be the right choice for you too.
During Smartlipo, one of our doctors here at Healthy Life Bariatrics inserts a probe equipped with a low-energy laser that destroys fat cells, which are then drained away through a small tube called a cannula.
Here are three reasons Smartlipo treatments are becoming more popular:
1. Smartlipo Melts Fat
Smartlipo is effective at transforming the way you look. The procedure literally melts fat away, especially stubborn fat that fails to respond to diet and exercise. While the effects are usually localized, a procedure can remove up to 8 pounds of fat. The heat from the laser energy melts the fat, so it’s easily removed with a cannula.
The procedure removes fat cells, so the results are permanent. You can maintain your new, slim physique with moderate exercise and a healthy diet.
2. It’s Minimally Invasive
Because Smartlipo is performed using minimally invasive techniques, recovery requires just one or two days. Although every surgery has some risks, Smartlipo is one of the safest techniques available.
You don’t have to undergo general anesthesia for Smartlipo, and the incisions are small, which means minimal scarring and a nearly pain-free procedure. During the procedure, you may feel a little pressure, but the sensations are quite tolerable.
Smartlipo does involve some minor-to-moderate discomfort during healing, so you may want to take a day or two off from work following the procedure. During this healing time, you est, eat a low-sodium diet and resist the urge to exercise or do strenuous activity.
Traditional liposuction usually requires long recovery time and up to six weeks of wearing a compression garment. With Smartlipo, you usually recover in just a couple of days and need to wear a compression garment for just one week.
3. Smartlipo also Tightens Skin
With traditional liposuction or weight loss programs, you may end up with sagging skin once you lose all the extra pounds. Because Smartlipo involves laser energy, it simultaneously firms your skin as it melts fat. Traditional liposuction doesn’t provide this skin-tightening benefit, so you face the very real side effect of sagging skin.
Tighter, firmer skin makes you look toned and more youthful. Plus, you can actually show off your new look in tight-fitting or figure-exposing clothes, like skinny jeans and bathing suits.
If you desire a slimmer you with tighter skin but don’t want to undergo major surgery, Smartlipo is for you.
