What Is Smartlipo™ Laser Liposuction?
Smartlipo™ laser liposuction is a relatively safe, state-of-the-art technique that uses a medical-grade laser to break up fat deposits in targeted areas of the body so that they can be easily removed. The procedure results in firmer, tighter skin. Smartlipo™ laser liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body with stubborn fat or loose, flabby skin, including:
Smartlipo™ vs. Traditional Liposuction
Liposuction has long been the procedure of choice for many individuals seeking improved contour and definition for their bodies after failed attempts at diet and exercise. However, for some people, the traditional liposuction technique can be traumatic to the tissues surrounding the treatment area, and the procedure may leave behind loose skin that can be hard to eliminate.
The innovative Smartlipo™ laser procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction, which means there is less discomfort and downtime after the procedure. Patients experience less bleeding, swelling, bruising, and post-surgical infections with Smartlipo™ compared to traditional liposuction surgery. Smartlipo™ also results in minimal scarring, which is important for the most natural-looking results. In addition, because Smartlipo™ requires little downtime, patients are able to return to work almost immediately after their procedure. Full results can be seen days after treatment instead of months as with traditional liposuction. For more information about the benefits of Smartlipo™ laser liposuction, please contact our practice.
The Smartlipo™ Procedure
During the Smartlipo™ laser liposuction procedure, a controlled laser is used to liquefy targeted areas of fat underneath the skin. The liquid substance is then removed through a thin tube called a cannula. The entire Smartlipo™ laser liposuction procedure takes less than one hour, and can be combined with other cosmetic treatments offered at our practice. To schedule a Smartlipo™ laser liposuction initial consultation, please contact Dr. Marcia V. Ormsby today.
Smartlipo™ Recovery and Results
Patients at our practice are amazed that Smartlipo™ laser liposuction has such a short recovery time. Smartlipo™ laser liposuction patients are able to go home approximately one hour after the procedure and often return to their normal activities within two days. Minor bruising, swelling, and some numbness may occur following treatment; however, Dr. Marcia V. Ormsby can prescribe medication to help alleviate any discomfort. She will also provide a compression garment to help reduce swelling. Dramatic results can be seen within one week of the procedure, with continued improvement over the next several months. Scars should fade considerably after three months.
