Liposuction continues to be a popular fat reduction method, using tiny incisions to remove your fat cells for good. Like any popular procedure, new techniques on how it’s performed continue to emerge. One of those techniques is SmartLipo laser liposuction. With SmartLipo, you can enjoy benefits such as less invasion, less downtime, and a quicker recovery! Here’s how it works:
Small incisions are made
SmartLipo requires even smaller incisions than traditional liposuction, resulting in little to no scarring. Because SmartLipo is minimally invasive, it can be performed under local anesthesia, so you’re still conscious and Dr. Erella will ensure you’re very comfortable during the process. Several incisions will be used over your treatment area for precise and even contouring.
Fat cells are liquified and removed
Through the incisions created, a small laser tip device will be inserted. Laser light energy will then be delivered, melting your fat cells for easy removal. In traditional liposuction, a cannula is used in a back and forth motion to break up your fat cells. By using a gentle laser instead, less trauma is inflicted on the body. The cannula is still used in laser liposuction, but only to suction out your fat cells once they have been liquified.
Collagen production increased
SmartLipo has another added benefit; Skin tightening! When laser energy is directed at the treatment area, surrounding tissue is heated to stimulate your body’s collagen production. Collagen is what gives your skin its structure. With more collagen produced, you can experience skin tightening for optimal body contouring.
After your SmartLipo procedure, you can also enjoy a more comfortable recovery with less bruising, so you can feel like yourself sooner. For more information on how laser liposuction works and how you can benefit, contact Aspira Plastic Surgery today.
