Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. with thousands of procedures performed each year. It is ideal for people with specific areas of unwanted fat who are unable to get rid of them through diet and exercise alone. New, modern liposuction technologies such as SmartLipo Liposuction are more advanced than in the past, allowing patients to have gorgeous, contoured results they can enjoy for years to come.
In 2006, SmartLipo was approved by the FDA as a method of fat removal and has been used widely ever since. SmartLipo is a less invasive form of liposuction that uses laser energy to liquefy tissue before being suctioned out. As a result, the fat is easier to remove and there is less trauma to the surrounding area. In addition to fat removal, SmartLipo also stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin and boost elasticity.
During the initial consultation process with one of the doctors at Calvine Medical Aesthetics, your personal goals and expectations will be discussed. On the day of the procedure, you will be given local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. Then, a small incision is made and a laser fiber is inserted. The laser uses various wavelengths to target and liquefy fat cell membranes and tighten skin. Once completed, your doctor will use a small cannula to suction the fat out. Depending on the areas being treated, the entire process should only take a couple of hours or less. The staff at Calvine Medical Aesthetics will provide helpful instructions for recovery.
While SmartLipo recovery is easier than traditional liposuction, some post-procedure side effects such as soreness and numbness are to be expected. If these effects prevent you from performing your job in a comfortable, safe manner, you may want to take some time off. Patients are usually back to their normal routine within a week. It is important to speak with your doctor before participating in strenuous activity or exercise to prevent inflammation or complications. Since SmartLipo is a skin tightening procedure that removes fat cells permanently, results will last as long as you maintain a stable weight. Regular exercise and a healthy diet will help keep you fit and the body looking proportionate.
SmartLipo liposuction can help you look and feel your best. Men and women alike can eliminate fat permanently with just one simple appointment, and patients can see phenomenal results in the face, arms, and body. Calvine Medical Aesthetics offers SmartLipo as an excellent alternative to more invasive surgery.
