Liposuction is a great way to remove pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. With SmartLipo performed at Aspira Plastic Surgery, you can remove your stubborn fat with less downtime, so you can slim down in time for the upcoming holidays!
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a type of advanced liposuction technique that helps to remove unwanted fat from the body for long-lasting recontouring. It uses a less invasive method compared to traditional liposuction. SmartLipo uses laser energy to liquefy the fat cells, making the removal process easier. Another benefit of the procedure is that it can stimulate the collagen production in your skin and the surrounding area. These added benefits will also reduce the risk of suffering loose and baggy skin which is left behind when the fat has been removed. This results in tighter, smoother skin.
Since the procedure offers great precision, it may be done on virtually any area of the body where pockets of stubborn fat are present. The most common areas to receive SmartLipo are the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, bra area, and under the chin.
How long will it take to recover?
Among the many benefits of the procedure, the most important is the shortened period of recovery compared to traditional liposuction. Because laser energy is used to liquify the fat cells with less invasion, patients can expect a more comfortable recovery with less swelling and bruising, making it the perfect procedure for the holidays.
The exact length of your recovery will depend on the size of the area and number of areas you have treated. Most of the time, you will need to rest only for the first two days and you can go back to work within 4 days. It is important to wait up to 10 days before engaging in any strenuous activities and exercises. Follow the instructions of your doctor to ensure that you get better faster.
