Smart Lipo Expectations
The Smart Lipo process is a well established procedure and uses laser technology that assists in liposuction. How it works is that the laser destroys fat, tones the skin, and minimizes sagging. By using a laser, this way of liposuction has less discomfort, less downtime and an improved recovery rate when compared to traditional liposuction. As with any type of procedure, interested patients must be examined by the physician to determine if they are candidates for this sort of procedure. Typically, several office visits are required before moving forward with the procedure. Blood work is also a requirement to get the go-ahead.
There are three main steps that a smart lipo procedure entails and they are the following:
- Local Anesthesia
- Fat Liquefaction with Skin Tightening
- Fat Removal
The local anesthesia is administered to the target areas. Then, the laser is inserted into the anesthetized area by using a fiber optic cannula. This is when the fat cells are permanently destroyed and the skin is thus tightening. Lastly, the fat is removed with liposuction. During this procedure, patients will undergo a light sedation, but are awake during the procedure. There will be feelings of pulls and tugs and some pressure is expected, but all tolerable. We find it important to maintain the patient's comfort throughout the procedure.
