What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive laser-assisted liposuction treatment. The device features an advanced laser and a tiny temperature-sensing suction tube called a cannula. The laser energy functions to disrupt and liquefy fat cells for easy, gentle removal that results in less bruising than traditional liposuction. Simultaneously, the laser causes the surrounding tissue to tighten, producing a smoother result.
With SmartLipo, you can expect the following benefits:
- A short, tolerable treatment session
- A short recovery period
- Smoother, firmer, and more refined contours
- Increased skin elasticity and collagen in the treatment area
- Lower risk of side effects compared to traditional liposuction
- Long-lasting results from one treatment
SmartLipo Treatment Areas
Due to the incredibly precise nature of the device, SmartLipo can be used on nearly any area of the face, neck, and body. It is an appropriate option for small, delicate features or larger problem spots.
Areas that can be treated with SmartLipo include:
- Beneath the chin
- Upper and lower back
- Lower legs
Many men and women are excellent candidates for SmartLipo. If you are interested in learning if this procedure is right for you, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Castor. He will take the time to understand your unique situation and the results you hope to achieve.
You may consider SmartLipo if you want to address love handles, flabby arms, or other aesthetic concerns related to localized excess body fat. As is the case with most body contouring treatments, SmartLipo is not a weight loss solution. Ideal candidates are within approximately 20% percent of their goal body weight and have realistic expectations for the procedure.
Your Laser Liposuction Procedure
Dr. Castor performs SmartLipo in-office under local anesthesia. The use of local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia is a significant advantage of the procedure. Local anesthesia is typically more affordable and comes with a lower risk of side effects. With the treatment area numb, you may experience a light, mild pressure during the procedure that is very tolerable.
Following your SmartLipo procedure, you may feel sore and experience some aches, like after a rigorous workout. Depending on the treatment area, Dr. Castor may advise you to wear a compression garment for a short time to maximize your results. The quick recovery time is something that patients appreciate; most people can return to normal activity after one or two days.
In most cases, one treatment is enough to produce the desired results. The vast majority of patients see a noticeable improvement within a week that continues to improve for three to six months.
