Let’s face it, we all have those ‘trouble areas’—pockets of fat that we love to hate! Sometimes we feel like diet and exercise can’t tackle this fat. Before you lose hope, consider SmartLipo at Advanced Gynecology Solutions. SmartLipo offers 2 times the benefits of traditional liposuction. The ‘lipo of old’ could remove the fat, but not address lax skin. With the benefit of the laser, the SmartLipo procedure is able to tighten the skin and produce a smoother and more sculpted result.
How is the fat removed?
FDA approved SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. By using the heat of the laser the fat is liquefied before it is removed, and the blood vessels are cauterized. This means the fat is removed without trauma. If you’ve ever watched a traditional liposuction procedure, you know—it’s fairly vigorous! With the aid of the laser we have less bruising and less bleeding, with faster healing and a smoother result.
How is the skin tightened?
The laser also stimulates the production of collagen, and the tissue reacts by tightening. The body’s natural defense mechanism towards the effect of the laser is to ramp up the production of collagen. Some tightening takes place right away, and tightening continues with the majority taking place in the first 4 months. Studies have shown that the skin can continue to tighten for about 2 years. Therein lies the 2 benefits—fat removal AND skin tightening. Yes please!
It is important to mention that the results of your SmartLipo procedure will be immediately effective and long-lasting. The fat cells that are removed with SmartLipo are not replaced by your body. Those cells are gone—goodbye! SmartLipo can target the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, arms, buttocks, chin, neck and back.
