At The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa, SmartLipo has become increasingly popular with our clients who want minimally-invasive but highly effective fat removal. During the procedure, laser energy is used to melt fat prior to fat extraction. Other than making liposuction less invasive, the use of a laser also offers our clients tissue-tightening benefits that improve their contour post-surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate?
SmartLipo is suitable for both men and women who are not significantly overweight. If you are at or close to your ideal body weight, you may be a good candidate. The procedure yields positive results for people of all skin tones.
How is the Treatment Different?
Since the procedure is laser-assisted liposuction, there are several benefits to it that traditional liposuction lacks:
- It will be more difficult for fat to accumulate in the areas of the body where fat is laser-treated
- The treatment sculpts your body while also enhancing your fat-burning capacity
- It helping to reduce or eliminate the possibility of loose skin in areas where more fat is removed, improving contour results overall
- It allows for fat to be liquefied for an easier extraction
What Parts of the Body Can SmartLipo Treat?
If you have stubborn fat in any of the following areas, the procedure may help you:
- Chin area
- Flanks/back fat
- Waist area
- Inner thighs
If you have specific areas of concern, share them during your consultation with us at The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa.
