SMARTLIPO Orange County
SmartLipo™ is a laser technology used for fat reduction and skin tightening. The SmartLipo™ laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and the fat cells are permanently destroyed. This fat reduction method is different from traditional liposuction in that it does not always require suctioning. It can be done as a stand alone procedure under local anesthetic for small targeted areas like the double chin. Larger or multiple areas of the body treated at once still require general anesthesia as the the liquefied fat still needs to be suctioned out by regular liposuction methods.
Individuals who best qualify for the SmartLipo™ procedure are those that are relatively fit with a healthy weight. SmartLipo™ is not designed to replace the natural weight loss methods; it simply helps contour areas stubborn fat accumulates that is resistant to diet and exercise. Patients who choose SmartLipo™ require some skin tightening in addition to fat removal with liposuction. Some of the most common treatment areas are the neck/chin, arms, back, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
The SmartLipo™ Procedure
Depending on the size of the target area and how many areas are being treated, the SmartLipo™ procedure is a two-step process involving liposuction suctioning as well. SmartLipo™ entails the use of a very thin laser probe to melt or liquefy fat. It is inserted through a small incision, delivering thermal energy directly to the targeted fat cells. The laser fiber destroys the fat cells and allows for gentle suctioning. At the same time, the tissue surrounding the treatment area is tightened, and unharmed by the laser, contributing to an overall smoother shape.
