What is SmartLipo®?
SmartLipo® is an FDA approved laser-assisted liposuction technique used to quickly remove unwanted fat deposits in areas such as the stomach, buttocks, neck, breasts, or virtually anywhere else. It is also the preferred procedure for the popular “mommy makeover“.
How Does SmartLipo® Work?
Our licensed Maryland Smartlipo surgeon use a carefully calibrated laser to liquefy fat deposits through the top layers of the patient’s skin. The laser ruptures the fat cells, and the resulting liquid substance is then removed through a tiny incision in the skin by the surgeon.
Are There Advantages Compared to Traditional Liposuction?
♦ Since fat cells are instantly liquefied by the laser, the size of the cannula used to remove the fat is significantly smaller. Therefore, the size of the incision is much smaller, which means less recovery time.
♦ Because the laser can seal blood vessels as it treats fat, there is less swelling, bleeding and bruising than with traditional liposuction.
♦ SmartLipo’s patients require only a local anesthetic, whereas liposuction requires general anesthesia. Therefore SmartLipo® carries fewer risks than traditional liposuction, and the recovery time is much shorter.
Treatments and Duration?
For most patients, typically only one SmartLipo® treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. During this time, a very small tube (cannula) containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser’s energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away. Results can be seen immediately, and because adults do not create new fat cells, most newly added fat will be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
