The Unwanted Side Effects of Liposuction
Millions of traditional liposuction procedures have been carried out over the years, and this type of surgery does help patients reach their cosmetic goals. Unfortunately, liposuction can result in quite a few unwanted side effects as well. Depending on the location of the treatment site and the amount of fat that is removed, some patients need to stay in bed for up to a month. Once they are out of bed and walking around, they will have to avoid all strenuous activities for at least a few weeks. The goal of Smartlipo is to produce the same results as traditional liposuction without the lengthy recovery and the other downsides.
Over the last few years, lasers have become a popular tool among cosmetic surgeons in Houston, TX and elsewhere. Laser energy can be used in many different procedures to tighten skin, cauterize vessels, and emulsify fat before it is removed. During laser-assisted liposuction, our surgeon can use the laser to help break apart the fat cells so that they are easier to remove. The laser also stimulates the body’s natural healing response, and the area is flooded with key amino acids and restorative platelets.
Emulsified fat is much easier to manipulate, and our surgeon can use a very thin cannula to extract the tissue after it has been liquefied. Another reason why so many patients have turned to Smartlipo over traditional liposuction is because the recovery period is much easier to get through.
Fatty tissue is completely extracted from your body during a Smartlipo procedure, and the results will be permanent as long as you don’t gain weight in the future. Patients who stick to a healthy diet and exercise program should continue to lose weight or be able to maintain their current weight following the procedure.
This technology could be exactly what you need to finally turn your life around and sculpt the body of your dreams. To learn more about Smartlipo, make an appointment at Persona Medical Spa in Houston, TX. Contact us today to book a consultation and get started!
