Smart Lipo™

Stubborn fat deposits may be preventing you from having the toned body contours you desire. Many people develop areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, preventing them from achieving the firm and defined body of their dreams. Smartlipo™ provides precise, tailored fat removal for a leaner and more attractive body contour.

Candidates

Patients seeking Smartlipo™ are usually in overall good health with fair skin elasticity. People considering Smartlipo™ have stubborn fat deposits in any of the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Face
  • Neck

Procedure

Smartlipo™ is performed under local anesthesia and combines traditional liposuction techniques with advanced SmartSense™ technology. The surgeon places tiny incisions in discreet locations at the correction sites. A thin, hollow tube (cannula) equipped with ThermaGuide™ delivers a controlled wave of energy. This energy heats the fat, causing it to liquefy and allowing for easier removal.

Benefits of Smartlipo™

  • The ThermaView™ technology assists your surgeon in seeing real-time fat deposits, providing even, custom fat removal results
  • Heat energy reduces bleeding and bruising compared to traditional liposuction
  • Heat energy liquefies fat for an easier and faster treatment
  • Minimal, two-day recovery period
  • SmartSense™ technology helps ensure patient safety

Recovery and Results

The short recovery period allows patients to return to work and their regular activities within two days. Smartlipo™ has minimal side effects that may include minor bleeding, bruising, and swelling. You should notice an immediate improvement in the contours of your body, and your final results will be apparent in after two weeks once the swelling has subsided. Scars may form at the incision sites, but they will be small and likely fade over time.

The results of Smartlipo™ are long-lasting. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will help ensure the best results possible.
