Lose Those Inches with SmartLipo

When the summer comes knocking at your door, there is simply nothing better than to get your bathing suit on and hit the beach. But if you’ve been struggling to shed those last couple of inches and don’t have a beach-body ready yet, then SmartLipo can come to your rescue.

A lot of people face a hard time toning their bodies even if they have managed to lose a lot of weight. Their body might still appear to sag or look a bit unfit, especially when it is modeled in ensembles like a crop top or bikini.

This is where aesthetic minimally invasive cosmetic procedures can help. You can easily flaunt your body and show some skin without feeling self-conscious or uncomfortable. SmartLipo is slowly becoming the treatment of choice among those trying to make their last bits of fat disappear. If you’re eager to bid farewell to those undesirable love handles, then SmartLipo is the perfect treatment for you.

SmartLipo: What Is It?

Smartlipo is a revolutionary lipolysis system that offers a minimally invasive treatment for removing extra fat accumulated in certain unwanted areas of your body. It is a laser-based body-sculpting process that requires very little recovery time and is extremely safe when compared to traditional liposuction.

For undertaking the procedure, your plastic surgeon will insert a tiny tube into your skin. This tube, also known as cannula, contains a laser fiber. The tube has a very significant role to play in the treatment. It is basically moved back and forth so as to transmit the energy of the laser to the body’s fat cells. This ultimately results in rupturing the cells and they are easily drained away.

Patients undergoing SmartLipo only require a local anesthetic. Besides draining away the fat cells, the laser energy also comes into contact with the dermis. This helps in skin tightening.

Why SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a safe treatment for all types of skin and an excellent alternative to other comprehensive fat-removal surgeries. Here are some of the common areas of your body that can be treated using SmartLipo:

  • Bra line
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Outer thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Jawline/neck
  • Abdomen

SmartLipo is the ideal treatment for those who find it difficult to lose stubborn fat from the above-mentioned body parts even with regular exercise and consistent dieting. In addition to this, SmartLipo stimulates natural skin firming and tightening processes, while liposuction is likely to leave you with loose, sagging skin after surgery.

The Consultation

It is best to set up an appointment with your doctor to know whether or not you’re a suitable candidate for SmartLipo. You might like to know that this procedure does not typically require you to stay overnight at the hospital or clinic. It takes about 2 to 4 hours to complete the treatment, though the time may vary depending on the size and number of body parts that need treatment. Your doctor will constantly monitor you for both safety and comfort during and after the procedure.
