Laser Liposuction is particularly well-suited for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction1 is often the only way to eliminate them.
While it is possible to undergo laser liposuction at almost any age, you will obtain the best results if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. When skin is inelastic, as in some older patients, it may not re-drape well and a skin tightening procedure may be necessary.
You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have localized excess fat or if you desire contouring in any of the following areas:
Laser Liposuction should not be considered a substitute for overall weight loss, nor is it an effective treatment for cellulite, a condition that gives the skin an uneven, dimpled appearance. Alternative treatments may be considered, in some instances, to improve this problem.
Laser Liposuction can be performed on several areas of the body at the same time, and it can also be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you’re a candidate for SmartLipo. Ideal candidates are in good health, of normal body weight, and have realistic expectations for the results.
For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. The session may last up to one hour for each area treated.
After the treatment you will have minimal pain or bruising. We recommend 1-2 days rest but most patients are able to return to work immediately, thus the procedure is often termed “lunch hour lipo.”
The procedure will improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree and will tighten sagging skin.
Results can be seen immediately with continued improvement over several months.
Yes! Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, the fat cells expand. The Smartlipo procedure removes the fat cells. Should you gain weight, most fat will be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
