A Smart Way to Remove Fat

Posted August 31, 2016 in Liposuction, Smartlipo™

shutterstock_225143647When we look in the mirror, we can’t help to examine our flaws, especially pockets of fat that are in the most inconvenient places, such as the hips, abdomen, and legs. We might try diet and exercise to get rid of excess fat; however, some fatty tissues are unresponsive to a healthy lifestyle and physical regimen. Since we can’t magically wake up and suddenly have a fat-free body, there are surgical options such as liposuction to achieve our aesthetic goals.

Today, there are several liposuction options for fat dissolution. Most patients want the latest technology when choosing the technique to help them meet their body goals. Several procedures can target stubborn fat, but why not remove the fat the smart way? Smartlipo™ is a safe and effective solution for fat removal that provides a tighter, better-contoured physique.

What’s so “smart” about Smartlipo™?

Easy Fat Removal

Smartlipo™ is a laser-assisted liposuction technique that uses heat to liquefy fat. By melting the fat, it helps to create an easier pathway to remove the fat through a cannula attached to a suction device. A tumescent solution containing a local anesthetic is injected before lipolysis to allow the targeted area to become swollen and firm. The surgeon can then remove the fat without putting too much strain on the body, which results in less bruising for the patient.

Permanently Removes Fat Cells

Smartlipo™ permanently destroys and removes the fat cells, so there is no need for repeat treatments. Therefore, patients who maintain their weight with diet and exercise can enjoy their results for many years.

Tightens Skin

The heat that liquefies the fat helps to promote collagen production and tighten loose skin. Smartlipo™ can help patients achieve smoother and beautifully shaped curves.

Am I a good candidate for Smartlipo™?

Smartlipo™is a good procedure for those who is at or near their ideal weight and have a few pockets of fat they would like to remove. They should be in good health, have realistic expectations, and have already tried traditional weight loss methods. Smartlipo™ is not a weight loss procedure and should not replace a healthy diet or an exercise program. It is a tool to reduce small portions of stubborn body fat and to provide a slimmer, better-contoured body.
