In this clip, Dr. Scott explains the Smartlipo™ technique and the benefits of combining this procedure with traditional liposuction.*
WHAT IS SMARTLIPO™?
Smartlipo™ is the first FDA approved laser-assisted lipolysis system used to permanently destroy fat cells, tighten the skin, and improve the contour of the body. Smartlipo™ delivers laser energy to fat cells using a tiny cannula containing a laser fiber. The laser energy causes fat cells to liquefy, making them easier to remove without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Laser energy is also delivered to cells under the surface of the skin, causing existing collagen to tighten and stimulating the production of new collagen. The tightening and stimulation of collagen causes the skin to tighten and results is a smoother, more toned appearance of the skin. This minimally-invasive treatment is the safest and most effective method to remove stubborn fat and improve body contour.
Advantages of Smartlipo™:
- Minimal downtime
- Shorter treatment times than traditional liposuction
- Skin tightening
- Lasting results
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH SMARTLIPO™?
Common treatment areas include thighs, arms, hips, neck, love handles, buttocks, and abdomen. Smartlipo™ is more effective at treating areas containing firm fibrous tissue mixed within the fatty layer that traditional liposuction treatments, and can be used to treat delicate areas that could not previously be treated. These difficult areas include liposuction retouches, male love handles, male gynecomastia, and the female back/bra-line.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients require only one Smartlipo™ treatment session and typically see results within a week of treatment. Results will continue to improve over the next several months with final results being visible about three to six months after treatment.
