Have you ever thought that you would look better and feel great if you could just get rid of those small saddle bags, that inch of belly roll, the loose skin where your triceps used to be, or the turkey neck? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” Smartlipo® may be right for you.
Today it is possible to “sculpt” select areas of the body and achieve results that have eluded you, despite healthy eating and hours of exercise. “Smartlipo®,” also referred to as laser-assisted lipolysis, is a minimally invasive, non-surgical body contouring treatment that is performed in our office under local anesthesia and requires less than one hour to complete. Smartlipo® uses laser energy to remove body fat while promoting tissue healing and skin tightening. View Photo Gallery of Smartlipo Results.
Ideal candidates for Smartlipo® are men and women who eat right, exercise regularly and stay in shape, yet still have pockets of fat that get in the way of an otherwise youthful figure.
Smartlipo® is not a weight loss procedure and cannot remove very large amounts of fatty tissue. However, it can effectively target localized fatty tissue deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet, for example, fatty tissue in the hips, buttocks, stomach, legs, arms, neck and face. See examples in our photo gallery.
Smartlipo® uses a tiny tube (called a “cannula”) with a laser fiber that is used to break down fat cells. The cannula is inserted beneath the skin and moved through the fat deposit. As fat cells are ruptured, fat is gently removed through the tube.
Using laser energy offers additional benefits to the liposuction process. Lasers coagulate small blood vessels which reduce bruising and swelling and add to a much quicker recovery time than with conventional liposuction. Lasers also promote natural collagen production beneath your skin’s surface resulting in tighter, firmer skin over slimmer, more toned body parts. The laser can precisely pinpoint specific fat cells for removal, which provides the ability to sculpt and tone your body.
