Smart Lipo is a technique where fat is melted by a small fiberoptic cable that is inserted via a small incision. Smart Lipo is best for small, targeted areas of fat removal. The advantages of Smart Lipo are that the procedure can be carried out with either local anesthesia or with oral sedation.
Smart Lipo Treatment
How does Smart Lipo work?
For many people who struggle with the shape of their body and signs of aging, body contouring is a minimally invasive solution—helping them re-shape and discover their beautiful. In fact, body contouring remains the number-one procedure performed by plastic surgeons, and patient demand is projected to grow 12.3% per year through 2017.
The advantages of Smart Lipo are that the procedure can be carried out with either local anesthesia or with oral sedation. You can return to work in 1-2 days, and usually with no pain. You may experience some bruising, but many patients do not have any. You may also experience skin tightening with Smart Lipo.
Results may take several weeks to see, with maximum benefit seen in about five months.
Laser lipolysis meets this demand with a less invasive technology that delivers positive outcomes and less patient downtime, as compared to traditional liposuction and other surgically invasive procedures. It also allows surgeons to provide aesthetic offerings across a wide range of patient types.
Laser Body Contouring Overview
Smart Lipo laser body contouring is a minimally invasive treatment due to the small cannula size and laser technology.
Some laser platforms provide the option of using local anesthesia and potentially improving procedural efficiency.
A laser fiber is introduced through an incision as a single laser fiber or through a small cannula and laser fiber combination, delivering energy directly to subcutaneous adipose tissue to disrupt fat cells and coagulate soft tissue.
Smart Lipo laser contouring results may include less bleeding, swelling, and bruising, as compared to traditional liposuction.
Patients may experience quicker healing and less recovery time, reducing the required time for follow-up in the office.
Laser lipolysis is an excellent adjunct to traditional liposuction treatment, which when used alone, may not provide benefits seen with laser energy.
Typically only one short smart lipo treatment session is needed per patient.
