Ever since the benefits of liposuction have been seen, medical professionals have been trying to find a way to improve the procedure, making it safer and more effective. For many years, there were little to no advances in what liposuction was or could be. Recently, medical science has jumped leaps and bounds by making liposuction safer and more effective. The end result was SmartLipo™. We are proud to offer this innovative procedure at our office in Austin.
What is SmartLipo™?
SmartLipo™ is a medical procedure that uses a device that has been uniquely designed to perform laser-assisted liposuction. During the procedure, a very thin tube that houses a laser fiber is inserted into the area that is going to be treated.
The laser fiber is used to heat up the fat cells in the treated area, thereby disrupting the fat cells and making it easier to remove them. This laser melts the fat. Once the fat is liquefied, it is gently removed.
At the same time, the heat produced by the laser fiber causes the tissue around the treated area to heat up. This tissue tightens as a result of coagulation, which leads to an overall smoother shape and better results.
Who is a Candidate for SmartLipo™ in Austin?
SmartLipo™ is not designed to be a weight loss procedure. Like traditional liposuction, it is designed to be a body contouring procedure. This means that it is designed to address stubborn areas of fat deposits that you might not have been able to remove with diet and exercise alone.
Is the Procedure Safe?
Yes! SmartLipo™ has been studied and researched more than any other laser-assisted liposuction procedure that is currently available today. Researchers, medical professionals and patients have been able to examine the results of SmartLipo™ for more than a decade and are pleased with the outcome.
The results are very clear. SmartLipo™ allows a person to contour their body with less discomfort than traditional liposuction. When compared to traditional liposuction, the bruising, the swelling and the overall recovery time is a lot less. The results are smoother, and patients are happy with how they look.
