Widely regarded as the most effective permanent fat reducing procedure, Smartlipo offers dramatic, smooth results on the abdomen, legs, love handles, knees, man boobs, arms and neck. Smartlipo requires minimal downtime (on average a weekend of laying low), and is performed without general anesthesia. Results are often noticeable within a few days. Because laser energy is used during the procedure, patients report much smoother results and significant skin tightening compared to traditional liposuction.
The procedure is performed in 3 steps and takes approximately 2 hours. First, through a 2 mm incision in the skin, local anesthetic is used to numb the treated areas. Next, a fiberoptic laser is inserted through the same openings to heat the skin and melt the fat. Finally, excess fat is gently suctioned away. Post-procedure, you will wear a compression garment (similar to a Spanx® Bodysuit) for about 2 weeks. Everyday activities like walking, going to the store, etc… are encouraged within a couple of days. Most patients are back to work after a weekend and back to normal workout routines in 2 weeks.
