Smartlipo™ is a liposuction technology incorporating laser preparation of fat cells before they are removed. Some of the main advantages of this technique are:
- Less invasive
- Less traumatic to surrounding blood vessels and connective tissue
- Reduces post-operative swelling and bruising
- Possibility of requiring only local anesthesia
- Recovery tends to require two days or less
The laser prepares fat cells by melting them. Fat removal is more efficient and less traumatic when the cells are liquefied in this way. In some cases, the laser provides moderate tightening of the skin in the treatment area, which is an additional benefit.
