In this day and age it seems like the more we're told to accept ourselves for who we are, the more we're told to change. For a child, especially a young girl, these mixed messages can be traumatizing. However, there is a way to give your child more options. SmartLipo is a safe, fast, and effective way to get rid of excess fat.
The procedure is simple and virtually painless. A miniscule incision is cut into the problem area. The doctor then administers a local anaesthesia. A local anaesthesia numbs the pain, but the patient doesn't fall asleep, allowing the doctor better manoeuvrability throughout the operation. The patient is usually standing up during the procedure, giving the doctor a chance to foresee the final outcome. A laser beam -- a high density white light emitting radiation-- targets the problem areas, liquefying the fat deposits in the arms, buttocks, chin, thighs, mons pubis, and abdomen.
Because SmartLipo is evasive, the amount of swelling, bleeding, and overall trauma is reduced to a fraction of traditional liposuction procedures --which I would never recommend for anyone under the age of 18. The anaesthesia wears off after an average of about 90 minutes. After the procedure and recovery, your child will have noticeably less fat and will be able to maintain that physique --with a reasonable diet and exercise habits.
Let me save you the guessing. It's expensive. SmartLipo can cost anywhere from $1400 to $12,000 depending on the area and amount of fat being removed. Here's a hint: the smaller the area, the lower the cost.
Though it's not my intention to tell you that you should allow your children to get aesthetic surgery, if it will help them get a sense of self-acceptance and confidence, I say go for it. The best thing to do is encourage your child to consider all of the options, not to get a surgery in hopes of quick results. Talk it over, get all the facts, and decide whether or not SmartLipo is the right option for your child.
