New York City, NY (PressExposure) October 16, 2009 -- Local anesthesia is administered prior to the treatment for this minimally invasive procedure. The results thus obtained are better, faster and the least painful when compared to that of traditional liposuction.
One of the first and foremost advantages of SmartLipo is that it doesnât leave behind loose skin that gives an unsightly âdeflated balloonâ-like look to areas from where fat has been removed. The laser is capable of stimulating the production of collagen which tightens the skin in the surrounding areas. The patient, unlike before, remains awake during the procedure and can stand up periodically to help the plastic surgeon view his work. A single session would be sufficient to attain the desired results and a touchup is not usually needed.
Traditional liposuction was infamous for causing much pain and discomfort as it used to suck out solid fat through a metal tube. Trauma and destruction of tissue were quite common and could not be helped. SmartLipo, on the other hand, utilizes a laser fiber that is inserted at the targeted region to dissolve the fat. The liquefied fat is then suctioned out or absorbed by the bodyâs lymphatic system and excreted. The tiny incisions made for the procedure require no stitches and all these factors help lessen recovery time and allow patients to resume work in two daysâ time. Other advantages of SmartLipo are that it minimizes blood loss and prevents trauma, which makes it the safest and least complicated procedure. According to some studies, laser lipolysis complication rate falls less than 1%, whereas complications associated with traditional lipolysis are about 10%.
After the SmartLipo procedure, patients are required to wear a compression garment for a specific period of time to reduce swelling. Though results are immediately evident, the complete effectiveness of the treatment can be seen six months after the procedure. Results are permanent and the fat cells removed do not grow back. Signs of surgical intervention are hardly evident and there is no scarring, much to the relief of patients.
SmartLipo is cost-effective in every aspect. Patients who have undergone the treatment have been ecstatic with the outcome and in their own words âcouldnât have hoped for a better procedure.â http://www.smartlipoplasticsurgeon.com
