What is SmartLipo, and how does it work?

SmartLipo, known as laser body contouring and liposuction, is a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure. Unlike traditional liposuction involving large incisions and anesthetics, SmartLipo only requires local anesthesia and a few micro punctures. During the process, a tiny laser fiber gently melts fat tissue, resulting in weight loss around the target area. SmartLipo can also provide skin tightening benefits because it can heat the underlying tissue layer and cause collagen stimulation. This body contouring alternative is gaining popularity because it offers fast results with minimal recovery time. As its name implies, SmartLipo is an intelligent way to eliminate unwanted body fat!

SmartLipo the body contouring procedure that can help individuals achieve their desired body shape goals. It is most commonly used by individuals unable to achieve the body shape they want with weight loss and exercise alone. It removes excess fat from targeted areas, like the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms. Modern technological advancements in liposuction have also brought about laser liposuction—a technique that removes fat and tightens skin. All these factors combined make liposuction an attractive option for those looking to take advantage of body contouring procedures that can help them reach their body shape goals. The benefits of the procedure are as under;

  • SmartLipo is a highly effective method for body contouring, removing excess fat in problem areas such as the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, and neck area under the chin.
  • This type of liposuction utilizes laser technology for more precise fat removal and is a form of laser liposuction.
  • Laser liposuction also stimulates collagen production, which can result in skin tightening in treated areas.
  • SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in-office.
  • Tumescent anesthesia reduces discomfort and bleeding, while oral sedation ensures patients are awake but feel no pain during the procedure.
  • The use of tumescent anesthesia and oral sedation means there is no need for general anesthesia, which can be risky for some patients.
  • Recovery time is relatively short, and patients can often return to work the next day.
  • Results are noticeable immediately after the procedure and will continue to improve as swelling subsides.
  • While SmartLipo is not a weight loss solution, it can aid in body shaping and toning.

What is SmartLipo procedure?

Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo utilizes laser technology to selectively target and dissolve fat cells from the body, making it a preferred alternative for those who wish to achieve weight loss without surgery. Not only does SmartLipo remove undesirable fat, but it also tightens sagging skin and contours the body for a more defined look! The process is straightforward; using small thin lasers attached to a tube, excess fat cells are broken apart and removed through suction. Depending on your body type and how much you’d like to reduce, sessions can last up to two to three hours – however, results are usually observed after just one session due to innovative laser technology employed by SmartLipo.

Overall, SmartLipo is a highly effective body sculpting treatment with minimal downtime compared to traditional liposuction procedures.
