“Love handles” and “muffin tops” and “saddle bags,” oh my! There’s no need to fear problem areas any longer; Smartlipo™ can eliminate all of these issues and more! Whether you’re concerned about a double chin, belly bulge, thunder thighs, or bulging fat along your bra line, Smartlipo™ can precisely treat almost any area of the body.
Smartlipo™ promotes tissue retraction to produce tighter skin in the treatment area once the fat is removed. Smartlipo™ has been shown to consistently produce 80% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction.
Smartlipo™ does not require general anesthesia and can be performed in an office-based setting rather than requiring admittance to a hospital or surgery center. This significantly reduces the price of treatment, meaning that Smartlipo™ has a lower cost (about 40% less) and provides superior results compared to traditional liposuction.
Smartlipo™ uses laser technology to melt the fat within the treated area, which makes removal easier and causes less damage to the surrounding tissues. This means less downtime (only a few days) and fewer side effects, so you can get back to your regular schedule and enjoy your new and improved body shape sooner.
So many people have a hard time finding clothes that they look and feel good in. After Smartlipo™, you will have a wider variety of clothing options that will look great on you. Don’t worry about having to hide those “love handles” or that “muffin top” with loose-fitting or bulky clothes any more; your new, slender body contours will look fabulous in almost anything you wear!
The procedure generally takes two to three hours to complete, depending on the number of areas treated.
