Laser Liposuction with SmartLipo

Laser Liposuction with SmartLipo

Liposuction has long been a popular option for cosmetic fat reduction. However, patients often worry about issues such as intense discomfort, bruising and a difficult recovery period. If these are concerns of yours, you may be interested to learn about SmartLipo™. This innovative alternative to traditional liposuction uses laser energy to help break up fat prior to removal, making it a much gentler process with fewer side effects. You’ll receive the same body contouring benefits to help you shed those stubborn pounds, and the procedure is just as safe. Laser liposuction with SmartLipo™ may be able to help you reach your aesthetic goals in a convenient and more comfortable way.

About SmartLipo™

SmartLipo™ is similar to regular liposuction except that it uses laser energy to liquefy fat rather than breaking it up with a cannula prior to removal. This process is far more efficient and gentle, allowing the destroyed fat to be easily removed from the body. This treatment isn’t meant to be used for weight loss. Patients should be at or near their goal weight with isolated pockets of fat that haven’t responded to diet or exercise. Common treatment areas include the thighs, abdomen, knees, arms, buttocks and flanks. It can even be used for sensitive areas like the neck and jawline.

What to Expect

Local anesthesia is typically used for patients undergoing laser liposuction with SmartLipo™. During the procedure, a thin tube with a laser fiber inside will be inserted into the area to be treated. The laser energy safely destroys targeted fat cells by rupturing the membranes. The fat that has been liquefied is then removed from the body. You may feel a warming sensation and some pressure, but little discomfort is to be expected. An added benefit of SmartLipo™ is the stimulation of collagen that occurs due to the use of laser energy. Collagen is a component of healthy skin, which helps to give the treated area a firmer appearance.

Results and Recovery

The recovery time for SmartLipo™ is shorter and smoother than with traditional lipo. You will want to slowly return to your usual activities over the next few weeks. Your results will continue to improve over the next several months. Sensible eating and a healthy lifestyle will help you to maintain these results.

SmartLipo™ is a safe and convenient alternative to a regular liposuction procedure. Our surgeon can advise you during a consultation at Island Medical Laser whether this form of lipo is a good treatment option for your needs. Our office is located in Roslyn Heights. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about laser liposuction with SmartLipo™.
