If you’ve dieted and exercised to slim and tone your body yet you still have pockets of resistant fat, don’t despair. Remember, everybody needs a little help sometimes. Even ardent exercisers may have problem areas where stubborn layers of fat hide all those well-earned muscles. SmartLipo, an FDA approved fat-dissolving procedure, can contour your body and give you the shape you have worked so hard to attain.
Like traditional liposuction, SmartLipo sucks up and removes fat cells but accomplishes it in an advanced manner. With standard liposuction the cannula is used to break up the fat cells with a thrusting action. Fat that has been cut away is then vacuumed up through the tube.
SmartLipo offers a gentler approach. Tiny incisions are made in the skin and then the slim cannula is inserted. The cannula is not just an empty tube, it has been threaded with laser filaments. The laser energy emitted melts the fat before it is sucked up through the cannula. Because there is less tissue trauma, there is less chance of bruising and swelling. And, in addition to liquefying fat cells, the laser actually cauterizes blood vessels which minimizes bleeding.
Another difference to consider, general anesthesia is often required for standard liposuction, whereas only localized anesthesia is administered for SmartLipo.
The laser serves another purpose as well-it stimulates collagen production. Increased collagen production will make your skin look smoother and tighter. Surgery used to be the only way to tighten lax skin. SmartLipo’s innovative process which both slims and tightens can take surgery to correct sagging skin unnecessary.
SmartLipo is not meant for drastic weight loss or for those patients whose skin is excessively loose with poor elasticity. It is the optimal procedure for those people who are physically fit but want to have a more sculpted physique.
If you are in good health with 25 or fewer pounds to lose and want to slim those problem areas so you will look better in and out of clothes, then you might be the perfect candidate for SmartLipo. It can etch those six-pack abs you’ve always wanted. It can define the pectoral region, replacing flab with defined chest muscles.
SmartLipo can do more than etch and define muscles, it can sharpen your jawline and slim your upper arms. It’s the precision tool for getting rid of a double-chin or tightening up wobbly arms so you can wear sleeveless tops with confidence. And remember, the thermal energy will help to contract the skin so the treated area will appear smoother and more youthful.
With this sophisticated fat removal process you can expect a virtually pain free procedure followed by a swift recovery. You should be able to return to work within 2 or 3 days. You may even notice a difference soon after the procedure, but it will take a few months to gauge its true success.
