Liposuction has been a popular cosmetic treatment for quite some time. This process removes fat from the body through a suctioning process in which the fat is first prepared for removal by being physically broken apart with a cannula. This traditional method can be quite traumatic to the body, leading to bruising, blood loss and an extensive recovery period. A less invasive form of liposuction is now available that uses laser energy to liquefy fat prior to removal. Known as SmartLipo™, this procedure is more gentle than traditional lipo, and it comes with a host of advantages over its predecessor.
The SmartLipo™ Difference
The laser energy is what makes SmartLipo™ different from traditional liposuction. Not only does the laser make the fat easier to remove, but it also offers added benefits. The SmartLipo™ device used to deliver the laser filament to the fat layers is much thinner than the kind that is ordinarily used in liposuction. This allows for a less invasive procedure with minimal disruption of tissues. In addition, the laser itself effectively seals off blood vessels in the areas treated, leading to less blood loss and bruising. Laser energy also has a beneficial effect on the skin because it promotes a constrictive effect on the skin, making for a smoother overall look.
The final results offered by SmartLipo™ are better than those of regular liposuction. The channels left beneath the skin are thinner, making recovery easier due to having less area to heal. In fact, the laser energy actually mobilizes the remaining fat, allowing it to fill the channels more quickly than the ordinary healing process. Laser lipo encourages your skin to retract smoothly over time, resulting in a better appearance. It’s also possible that this improved tightening can help patients with excess skin to avoid surgery to eliminate it.
A recovery period is needed for any liposuction procedure. The laser energy and narrow tool used in SmartLipo™ allow for a far shorter and more comfortable experience. The efficient breakup of fat makes removal less traumatic on the body and limits any inclusion of nerve or connective tissue as can happen with traditional liposuction. As the laser seals off blood vessels, there will be less bruising and bleeding. These factors combined ensure less discomfort and a faster return to your everyday activities.
