If you’re sick of looking at lumpy sections of excess fat on your body, there is a relatively new procedure that can give you fast results with short recovery time. Smartlipo is a revolutionary type of liposuction procedure that utilizes laser technology to melt the fat before it is removed.
Ever since it became available in the cosmedical industry, Smartlipo has created a following of women and men who love its results. Let’s talk about what Smartlipo is and all of its benefits.
How Smartlipo Works
In this procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is introduced into the part of the body where you want to lose fat. Unlike older liposuction methods where the fat is merely sucked out, with Smartlipo the laser technology first heats up the fat and essentially melts it before being suctioned out of the body.
The laser breaks apart the membranes of the fat cells so that the cells are destroyed. The result is a liquefication of the fat, allowing a smooth exit of the fat from the body through the cannula. Since the fat is softened in this way, the passage of the fat into the cannula is smoother than with traditional liposuction.
There are two major benefits of this:
1. This process causes negligible swelling and bruising on the liposuction site and after healing.
2. The laser technology firms up the skin, resulting in a toned and tight appearance.
Firming Effect of Smartlipo
Unlike traditional liposuction, which removes fat from under the skin and leaves you with rough and saggy skin, Smartlipo makes your skin look younger and tighter. The skin is naturally saggy and dimpled when you lose weight, so this technology helps to fix that problem.
This is one of the biggest reasons why Smartlipo is so popular among women and men, because the laser automatically treats lax skin. You will not need a surgical procedure afterward to remove excess skin.
Recovery Time After Liposuction
The recovery period for Smartlipo is quick. You should be able to return to your normal activities in a day or two.
This amazing method of liposuction can be used in many different parts of the body, too. It can remove fat and tighten skin on the face, neck, thighs, arms, legs, abdomen, and more, and it only takes a couple of days to recover regardless of what area of the body is being treated.
You will notice results within the first week, and you’ll see further improvement over the course of several months as your body naturally adjusts to your new shape.
Is Smartlipo Right for You?
Your viability for this procedure increases if you are suitable for other liposuction methods as well. Patients who have good overall health and good muscle tone are usually good candidates for Smartlipo.
