Liposuction is a popular fat-removal option for many people who find that diet and exercise are not eliminating stubborn pockets of fat. No matter what part of the body you want to address, this type of procedure can help to tighten up the skin and give you a more contoured look.
While most people have heard of liposuction before, they may not have heard of laser lipo. Discover more about what laser lipo is and what it has to offer you before meeting with your board-certified plastic surgeon about your options.
What Is SmartLipo (Laser Lipo)?
While many patients are familiar with how traditional liposuction works, they may wonder about the new minimally-invasive laser lipo technology. What is the real difference between SmartLipo and traditional liposuction?
Many people automatically think of power-assisted liposuction (PAL) that uses a vibrating tool to break apart fatty deposits in the body. Or they may think of traditional liposuction during which providers use a tool to break up and remove the fat in a given area using a tube known as the cannula.
Laser lipo also breaks up fatty deposits, but it utilizes a laser instead of a mechanical tool. Once the area has been treated with the SmartLipo laser, fat cells are removed through the same cannula traditionally used.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Lipo?
If you are considering fat removal at Legacy Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, you may want to know how you can benefit from this service. Our minimally invasive laser lipo treatment has several advantages over traditional fat removal methods.
First, SmartLipo is a more precise way of targeting specific areas of the body. In areas that are particularly challenging to treat, laser lipo offers better results and can completely remove fatty deposits that are no longer wanted. Other benefits of laser lipo include:
- Fewer incisions
- Less visible scarring
- Reduced recovery time
- Skin tightening
Sometimes, it may be helpful to combine different types of procedures. This is why it is important to meet with an experienced lipo surgeon to discuss the best options for your body. You should always opt for personalized treatment to get the best results from your SmartLipo procedure.
What Areas Can Be Treated by Laser Lipo?
Many people are interested in this less invasive form of liposuction, but will it work for your area that needs attention? The good news is that laser liposuction can treat almost all parts of the body.
The lower body is one of the most popular areas for liposuction treatment, including your belly, thighs, hips, and even the lower back. Patients also often treat their upper bodies, including the upper arms, back, or chest.
Liposuction can also help remove fat from the face around your jawline, cheeks, chin, and neck for a more defined, contoured facial appearance.
