Laser Liposuction SmartLipo
Laser Lipolysis is similar to traditional liposuction in that it is used for removing fat in the body. However, this new technology is less invasive, requires no sutures and offers sculpting and skin-tightening benefits as well. Laser liposuction offers the versatility to match treatment offerings with patient demand for body contouring.
A very thin tube containing the Smartlipo™ laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a tiny incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fat for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue coagulates through the laser energy that is delivered, contributing to an overall smoother shape.
Laser liposuction may involve less pain, less bruising and swelling. In many cases, local anesthetic is used instead of general anesthesia, so you’re awake during the procedure—which means a faster, easier recovery period than with traditional liposuction.
