You can have the body you envision with Smartlipo laser body sculpting from Iorio Plastic Surgery & CosMedical Center. Smartlipo is the best liposuction method available today. Its state-of-the-art, laser-assisted liposuction technology melts and removes unwanted fat and also tightens droopy skin, creating a smooth, tight body contour. Smartlipo is safer than traditional liposuction and is the procedure of choice for most doctors and patients.
What is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo is different than traditional liposuction. Smartlipo utilizes laser technology to remove stubborn fat from small areas where traditional liposuction can’t, such as the face, chin, neck area, back, and knees. It is also great for areas of the body that were treated with traditional liposuction in the past.
Not only does laser-assisted Smartlipo remove unwanted fat, but it tightens droopy skin for a toned and smooth appearance.
What are the benefits of Smartlipo?
The main benefit of Smartlipo laser body sculpting over traditional liposuction is that it requires only local anesthesia, meaning you are awake, making the procedure very safe.
Most Smartlipo patients also experience less bruising, discomfort, and downtime than with traditional liposuction.
How is Smartlipo performed?
Smartlipo is an in-office procedure performed while you are awake. This procedure by Dr. Iorio requires just local anesthesia.
During the procedure, the Smartlipo laser releases a burst of energy that dissolves the fat but does not heat the skin excessively. The Smartlipo laser actually melts fat within the fat cells, making it easy to remove the liquefied fat with suctioning. Further, small areas of liquefied fat are absorbed by the body.
What happens after Smartlipo?
Smartlipo has a short downtime because there is less trauma, bleeding, and risk of infection than with other liposuction methods. Most patients return to work after a few days. You will typically see continued improvement in your overall skin appearance for up to three months, and results are permanent.
