What Is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo is a laser-assisted liposuction approach that liquefies and removes excess fat tissue to help slim and sculpt the silhouette. Commonly treated areas include:
Smartlipo can help contour these areas with more dramatic results than nonsurgical body contouring alternatives. Its laser heating offers the added benefit of skin tightening via collagen production to reduce skin dimpling in the treated areas.
Who Is a Candidate for Smartlipo?
Ideal Smartlipo candidates are dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and are looking to reduce localized pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise. It’s important to note Smartlipo is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a cosmetic complement to a greater weight management plan.
How Is Smartlipo Performed?
Smartlipo is performed while you are under local anesthesia and typically takes around 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the specifics of your procedure. We’ll insert a thin tube called a cannula through a very small incision in the treated area. The device’s laser fiber melts fat tissue, which is then suctioned out of the body.
What Is Smartlipo Recovery Like?
Most people return to work and other daily activities in 3 to 5 days. You’ll likely experience some bruising and tenderness in your treated areas for 2 to 3 weeks. Depending on your treated area, we may recommend wearing a compression garment for a week or 2 to minimize swelling and encourage a smooth result.
What Is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that uses thermal energy to reduce dimpling in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
How Does Cellulaze Work?
Cellulaze treatments typically take 1 to 2 hours and are performed while you are under local anesthesia. During the treatment, the heat energy severs bands of connective tissue that pull on the skin and lead to dimpling. It also encourages collagen production for healthier, more elastic skin, typically with only a single appointment.
What Is Cellulaze Recovery Like?
You may experience some swelling or bruising in the treated areas for a day or 2 following your treatment, and most people return to their daily activities after that. You’ll wear a compression garment for about 2 weeks to minimize swelling and encourage a smooth and even result.
