The Benefits Of Smart Lipo

Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure that can make a considerable difference in the contours of your body. Although traditional liposuction is quite effective at removing fat, Smart Lipo has major benefits over traditional liposuction.

Less Invasive

Although traditional liposuction techniques have improved to make them less invasive, it is still more invasive than Smart Lipo. Traditional liposuction requires a larger incision so the cannula can be inserted into the targeted area. The cannula is moved back and forth under the skin to help loosen and liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out. Bleeding, scarring, and bruising are normal side effects of traditional liposuction. Smart Lipo works in a similar manner. During Smart Lipo, a tiny incision is made to insert the laser. This incision is smaller than the incision for traditional liposuction. The laser helps liquefy the fat and it is removed through the incision. The laser used during Smart Lipo has the added benefit of cauterizing blood vessels, which stops bleeding under the skin. Reducing bleeding results in less bruising and bleeding after the procedure, thereby speeding recovery.

Better Sculpting

People who have large areas of fat may need traditional liposuction to achieve their ideal results. However, people with less fat that needs to be removed will gain better results with the more subtle sculpting achieved with Smart Lipo. The laser used to target particular areas of fat is much smaller than a cannula, which allows the doctor to achieve better sculpting. More meticulous sculpting makes it easier to avoid undesired outcomes like areas of fat removal that are not smooth and may require repeat procedures to fine-tune the area. Additionally, Smart Lipo allows for the treatment of areas that would normally be too small to be treated with traditional liposuction.

Better outcomes are achieved because of the laser. The laser has the additional effect of encouraging collagen production and tightening the surrounding tissue. When fat is removed from an area, the skin at that location will become loose. Depending on how much fat is removed and the person's skin elasticity, the loose skin may never tighten. The laser used during Smart Lipo helps encourage the skin to tighten after the fat is removed. Although the skin may not become completely tight, the skin will become tighter than what would have been achieved with traditional liposuction.

If you want liposuction, it is in your best interest to choose a method that will help you achieve the ideal results with fewer side effects. Smart Lipo can be the right choice for many people who do not need extensive fat removal. For more information on Smart Liposuction, contact a professional near you.
