Just like a gifted artist your Smart Lipo physician will shape and contour your body to help you capture that look you have always wanted. Imagine a flat and firm abdomen, unwanted fat whisked away from other parts of your body. Think about you, wearing just the right clothes that you’ve always wanted to wear. Smart Lipo is the liposuction technique.
One of the many marvelous things about Smart Lipo is that the procedure done in an office or clinic. Prior to the procedure, the fatty areas are marked and a local anesthetic, usually lidocane, is used to numb the area. The laser itself is a small hand held device much like a pen. Using a small canula which is inserted into the skin adjacent to the fatty tissue to be removed and then fired. Upon firing a laser beam of light impacts the tissue causing it to liquefy. This liquid matter is then sucked from the area using a high powered, but totally safe, vacuum. Simultaneously the laser also causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding and swelling. The laser also affects the collagen in the skin which later causes the skin to tighten and shrink. Each session takes about 30-45 minutes.
Another reason that the Smart Lipo technique is superior to traditional liposuction is its ability to not only remove fat, but it also promotes skin tightening for even better contour changes. The Smart Lipo instrument is smaller and more refined and use very small skin punctures - so there are no stitches and usually no visible scars.
The remarkable thing about this procedure is how few side effects there are. In fact most patients are up and about their normal routine within a day or two.
