Liposuction has remained one of the most popular body contouring procedures to eliminate stubborn fat cells. But now candidates for liposuction are choosing SmartLipo instead! SmartLipo is the latest liposuction technique utilizing laser technology to zap your stubborn fat away. Here are some of the benefits over traditional liposuction:
Traditional liposuction involves the use of a cannula to break up and remove fat cells. With SmartLipo, a small laser tip is used to liquify the fat cells which are then removed with the cannula. By using the laser to break up fat cells instead of a back and forth motion of the cannula, less trauma is put on the body. This means smaller incisions and less bruising!
Along with reduced trauma comes reduced recovery time. Because SmartLipo results in less bruising, you can expect a smoother recovery period. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, taking less time to come out of than general anesthesia, so you can feel like yourself sooner. After just a few weeks you can begin to notice the results of your treatment, with full results revealed after a few months.
Skin laxity can occur with age, after pregnancy and child birth, or from weight loss. Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo offers skin tightening benefits for optimal contouring. Laser technology heats the targeted tissue to stimulate collagen growth, improving mild skin laxity, and making SmartLipo a two-for-one treatment!
