Smartlipo® and traditional liposuction help eliminate unwanted body fat, but each has unique applications. Neither are weight loss procedures, but both can enhance your appearance and reveal a more shapely, toned physique by burning away fat cells that create excess tissue on the arms, legs, buttocks, thighs, and more.
Smartlipo is a revolutionary adaption of traditional liposuction that offers minimally invasive, laser-assisted therapy to patients at our Holmdel and Brick, NJ, plastic surgery offices.
Smartlipo vs. Liposuction
Both Smartlipo and liposuction help patients eliminate unwanted fatty tissue and achieve a more sculpted, contoured physique. However, there are limits to the treatment areas of traditional liposuction that Smartlipo corrects.
Smartlipo can treat areas such as the face and chin, neck, back, and even the knees. It can also be used to enhance the results of areas previously treated with traditional liposuction.
Another major benefit of Smartlipo is that it can be performed under local anesthesia rather than general. This minimizes the risks during and after your procedure.
Smartlipo also has reduced discomfort and downtime after treatment with the typical recovery period ranging from a few days to a week. Liposuction recovery can take anywhere from two to six weeks.
Is Smartlipo as Effective as Liposuction?
Smartlipo can be just as effective as other types of liposuction, but it may deliver less noticeable results in areas with large fat deposits. The benefits of Smartlipo include less trauma at the treatment site, reduced bleeding and swelling, and faster recovery.
The results can be comparable to traditional liposuction in many cases. Patients may even decide to receive Smartlipo on some areas and traditional liposuction on others.
A consultation with Dr. Iorio can help you determine the best treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
