People have tried numerous ways to eliminate fat from their bodies, some more dangerous than others, and techniques have evolved within the last three decades to become safer and more effective. Almost everyone has heard of liposuction, which is a surgery that removes unwanted fat from the body with a thin, hollow tube and suctioning through small incisions. While improvements to this procedure have allowed for less blood loss and less patient discomfort, liposuction is still a surgery and therefore carries certain risks. Fortunately, technology has allowed for the development of a nonsurgical laser fat removal method called SmartLipo™ that has numerous benefits over traditional liposuction.
SmartLipo™ was approved by the FDA for laser-assisted lipolysis. The laser is able to vaporize fatty tissue, coagulate small blood vessels so there is less bleeding, and tighten the skin over the treated area. This means that SmartLipo™ can safely and effectively disrupt fat cells and tighten tissue at the same time. This laser technology requires only 2 mm incisions, so there is almost no scarring, less bruising, fewer side effects, and general anesthesia is not required. This leads to faster healing with less trauma to the body. SmartLipo™ allows for reduced downtime as well as a lower cost.
Best of all, not only can the SmartLipo™ laser technology remove the same amount of fat as traditional lipo, but it can also tighten the skin up to 80 percent more. When traditional liposuction removes fat, if the skin does not have good elasticity the patient is at high risk of being left with sagging skin. Because of its skin tightening properties, SmartLipo™ significantly reduces this risk. It can be used to perform laser liposuction anywhere on the body, including the neck, abdomen, back, thighs, and just about anywhere there is a local fat deposit.
