What is SmartLipo?
Those who struggle with fat deposits on the body and cannot seem to eliminate it through diet and exercise may be able to find help with SmartLipo.
SmartLipo consists of a laser that liquefies unwanted fat deposits and at the same time stimulates collagen production. SmartLipo offers results that are long-lasting and causes minimal downtime.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can benefit from this procedure, please give us a call. We would be happy to help with any questions or concerns.
How is SmartLipo Performed?
Dr. Banks and her team of professionals use a small tube that is around the size of a pencil head. The tube, which is inserted into the skin, contains a laser that delivers energy to the fat cells, causing them to burst where the fat can be easily drained.
SmartLipo is a minimally invasive process, and because the tube is small; it is performed under local anesthesia. Another benefit is that the laser coagulates the blood vessels, so there is less bleeding and swelling than in traditional forms of liposuction.
How Do I Know if SmartLipo is Right for Me?
Those who suffer from excess deposit of fat in the neck, arms, back, knees, breasts, and stomach may benefit from the SmartLipo procedure. Patients who have tried diet and exercise, but have not seen results, and who are healthy and within 25 pounds of their desired weight, are the best candidates.
What Type of Post-Operative SmartLipo Care Can I Expect?
The downtime for SmartLipo is much less than the traditional liposuction procedure. Patients may experience minimal swelling and bruising, much of which subsides within a few days. Patients generally take one to two days off from work and normal routines.
In most cases, patients only require one session of SmartLipo. Some improvements will be noticed right away, but results will continue to appear over the course of a few months after the treatment.
What are SmartLipo Costs?
SmartLipo costs depend on the patient and how much work is done. At times, SmartLipo may be done at the same time as another procedure, so this also factors in to your costs. During your personal consultation with Dr. Banks, you will be able to discuss all of your options and goals, and Dr. Banks will come up with a specific treatment plan from there.
