How to Prepare for Your SmartLipo Appointment
You don’t need to do much in preparation for your SmartLipo appointment. We recommend clearing your schedule for at least a few days after treatment to give yourself time to heal. When you visit us for your pre-op consultation, we’ll ask about your medical history. Please be ready to explain any past surgical treatments or current health conditions.
We’ll also take the time to explain the treatment process in detail. We encourage you to ask questions during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect. We’ll also discuss your desired treatment outcomes to ensure we establish realistic expectations before your procedure.
The Smart Lipo Procedure Process
No general anesthesia is required. During the procedure, only the treatment area will be numbed with local anesthesia. Therefore, you will be awake during the procedure.
To begin, Dr. Robert Caiati gently inserts a fiber optic laser cable into the body through a very small tube. The laser’s energy ruptures the fat cell membranes from the target area, permanently destroying them. After that, the liquefied fat is gently suctioned out of your body.¹
A typical procedure lasts one to two hours, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
What to Expect From Your Laser Lipo Treatment*
During the procedure, you will not feel any pain. You may feel a tugging or pressure sensation. After the procedure, minor bruising and swelling is expected. Most patients are required to wear a compression garment for a week to support the treatment area and help the body heal. Individual experiences vary but most patients return to their daily activities within a day or two. Typically, results can be seen within a month.*
There are some things you should and shouldn’t do after SmartLipo. We’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions to get the most from your treatment and minimize side effects. We will also prescribe pain medication and antibiotics to take while you recover. Follow the dosage instructions carefully to reduce your post-procedural pain and infection risk.
Avoid driving or operating machinery for the first 24 hours after your appointment. You should plan to get as much rest as possible during this time. However, the day after your appointment, we recommend short segments of light activity, such as walking for 10 minutes. You can increase your daily activity over the following days as tolerated. Staying sedentary for too long can increase your risk of pneumonia, deep venous thrombosis, and slowed recovery.
Wait 24 hours after SmartLipo to shower. If you have a drain, place a long pantyhose or shoelace around your neck and pin the drain to it so it stays in place. Follow all other aftercare instructions as provided to ensure a smooth, low-risk recovery.
Fat Reduction + Skin Tightening
After laser liposuction, you will not need to worry about dimpling or sagging skin in the treatment area. Smart Lipo actually tightens your skin through coagulation. Three wavelengths provide a targeted attack to disrupt fat cells, coagulate the blood vessels, and stimulate collagen. This aids the skin tightening process and improves elasticity as well. ¹
How Much Does Smart Lipo Cost?
Smart lipo prices depend on several factors. The specific treatment area and the number of areas treated impact laser lipo cost. During your complimentary consultation with Shore Medical Aesthetics & Anti-Aging, Smart lipo prices will be thoroughly covered. If this fat reduction procedure is right for you, we will help customize a treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Trouble Areas Attacked
Popular Smart Lipo treatment areas include:
If you are having any issues with these areas, perhaps this is the procedure for you. Dieting and exercise is a valuable aspect of anyone’s life. Unfortunately, some fat deposits resist diet and exercise. That is where we come in. We provide patients with this great procedure to help them look and feel great.
Smart Lipo Reviews in Scientific Literature
Summarizing Smart Lipo reviews published by scientists and researchers in academia, a publication in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology notes, “studies have continued to corroborate early clinical observations of decreased adiposity [fat,] shorter recovery times, and improved skin tightening.” The authors explain, “Laser lipolysis liquefies fatty tissue, coagulates small blood vessels, induces collagenesis with remodeling, and promotes tissue tightening.”
Continuing, the authors list “several distinct advantages of laser lipolysis” over traditional liposuction. “One commonly promoted advantage of laser lipolysis is fast patient recovery…most patients are able to return to normal daily activities within 1.5 days.”
Furthermore, the study suggests, “Laser lipolysis may diminish postoperative pain” because “less trauma is needed to remove fat” They conclude saying, “Finally, the well-established and reviewed skin-tightening effect is perhaps the most significant advantage of laser lipolysis.”¹
It’s normal to experience minor bruising, swelling, and localized tenderness for a few days after SmartLipo. Rarely, patients may experience infections or hematoma. The latter condition refers to blood that pools beneath the skin. Following our aftercare instructions will reduce your risk of unwanted side effects.
Anyone with stubborn fat pockets that don’t go away with regular exercise and a healthy diet may qualify for SmartLipo. The best candidates are people with a healthy body weight and generally in good health.
Most patients only need one SmartLipo treatment to get good results. Each session normally lasts between 45 minutes to an hour per treatment area.
SmartLipo can improve cellulite, but it won’t make it go away completely. It also tightens loose, saggy skin and improves the shape of the body.
SmartLipo results are long-lasting. The laser utilized during treatment permanently removes the targeted fat cells. Once they’re gone, those fat cells can’t ever come back. However, poor lifestyle habits can still cause the remaining fat cells to enlarge. Therefore, if you want to keep the great results of your SmartLipo procedure, you need to continue exercising and eating healthy foods.
