Also referred to as laser liposuction, Smartlipo is an exciting new procedure that allows our team in Houston to safely remove stubborn body fat with limited side effects. Many of our patients head back to work within just days of this treatment, and the results can be permanent as long as you stay at a healthy weight. If you’re no longer happy with your body due to stubborn fat, then you might be a candidate for this procedure. But first, you are wondering what to expect before and after Smartlipo.
A Closer Look at Traditional Liposuction
Liposuction has remained one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world for the last four decades, and this technology has helped millions achieve their cosmetic goals. Liposuction is incredibly effective, but there are some clear disadvantages that all patients should be aware of. Recovering from liposuction often takes weeks, and you might not be able to exercise for well over a month. It is also very difficult to carry out liposuction on sensitive areas of the body.
Liposuction and Laser Technology
One of the best ways to minimize the side effects of liposuction is to use a laser to break apart the fat before it is withdrawn. Our team in Houston utilizes advanced lasers that weaken the outer walls of the fat cells without damaging any other soft tissue. After the fat has been emulsified, it is much easier to take out of the body. Smartlipo and traditional liposuction produce nearly identical results, but the side effects aren’t as severe when a laser is used.
The Benefits of Laser Lipo
The biggest benefit of Smartlipo is the fact that it is much less invasive. Many patients are back on their feet within just days, and you might even be able to return to work in under a week. As long as your body heals properly and you follow all aftercare instructions, you could resume exercising in as little as weeks. Of course, our team in Houston can give you more details regarding what to expect before and after Smartlipo at our office.
