A lot people are talking about SmartLipo-a technology that reduces fat by laser technology. A small probe is inserted into areas that have deposits of excess fat, and energy from a YAG laser is emitted. The fat cells are literally ruptured by the laser energy, and the body naturally expels the liquid matter within cells. Laser energy also coagulates tissue so that skin can conform to the new shape after treatment. You’ll be in compression after the procedure and will see your results start to evolve within a week.
How does this differ from liposuction? With liposuction, fat is loosened and sculpted with the tip of a cannula (a hollow tube inserted through the skin). It is then removed from the body immediately with vacuum suctioning. Ultrasonic energy in the form of Vaser Liposelection can be added to emulsify the fat first so there is less “thrust” to the sculpting and to help coagulate tissues so they better conform to your new shape. You’ll be in compression after the procedure and see results right away. Swelling will be resolved over coming weeks.
Both SmartLipo and liposuction require fully accredited surgical facilities for your safety, even though some procedures can be performed with local anesthetic. Neither are meant for weight reduction, but rather spot reduction of excess fat. Both require an experienced doctor who performs both procedures to identify which one is best for you.
