SmartLipo Body Sculpting
Who is a candidate for SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is laser assisted liposuction that is ideal for cosmetic surgery patients who may be within 20-25 pounds of their ideal body weight. SmartLipo, designed as a minimally invasive alternative to many weight loss methods, uses a state-of-the-art medical laser to eliminate, stubborn body fat deposits. SmartLipo is a permanent fat removal technique that is most effective when combined with a healthy lifestyle, regular exercise and calorie conscious eating habits. The SmartLipo laser has the ability to remove more than six pounds of body weight in a single session. Patients interested in learning more about the SmartLipo procedure and their candidacy should contact top body sculpting surgeon, Dr. Beck.
How Does SmartLipo Work?
SmartLipo is a meticulously calibrated laser utilized to treat one or more specific body areas. A small cannula (tube) that is attached to the device is used to rupture fat cells through the top layer of the skin. Once released from the cells, the fat is liquefied by the laser's energy. The oily substance in then removed by Dr. Beck though small incisions on the surface of the skin. This advanced technique prevents fat from seeping back into the cells and/or accumulating in other body part, which is why SmartLipo results are immediate.
SmartLipo treatments last anywhere from 45-60 minutes and patients receive local anesthesia that minimizes any pain and/or discomfort.
SmartLipo recovery is relatively minimal and patients often return to work within one to two days following the procedure. Pain medication and compression bandages are often necessary to eliminate discomfort, aid in healing, prevent infection and/or blood clots. SmartLipo coagulates blood vessels, which leads to reduced swelling, bruising and/or bleeding during the recovery period. Most incisions are completely healed within a few weeks following SmartLipo.
SmartLipo laser treatments are the perfect alternative for patients who wish to achieve a proportional and slim physical appearance. The laser may be utilized to address a number of body areas, including thighs, hips, buttocks, stomach, legs, arms, face and neck. Dr. Beck may administer SmartLipo in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments and/or complete body transformation procedures, including male to female surgery.
