Smartlipo is an innovative procedure that gives our team in Houston, TX the ability to remove stubborn body fat and tighten loose skin at the same time. We utilize a medical-grade laser to gently melt fatty tissue while stimulating the production of key proteins such as collagen and elastin. Smartlipo can produce astounding results in just a fraction of the time of traditional lipo, and most of our patients are back on their feet within days. If you are a resident of Houston, TX or one of the surrounding communities and would like to sculpt the body of your dreams, then you might be the perfect candidate for Smartlipo.
Unwanted Body Fat and Loose Skin
Our bodies automatically try to conserve as much fat as possible to have an emergency supply of energy. Even if you spend hours at the gym every week and stick to a very strict diet, it might take years to burn off the fat in your midsection or thighs. That fat is your body’s last accessible source of energy before it starts burning muscle and other soft tissue. After all of that hard work, many people are left with loose skin because of a lack of collagen. In order to completely revitalize your appearance, both of those issues must be addressed at the same time.
The Cons of Traditional Liposuction
Very few procedures are as popular as liposuction, but the biggest problem with this procedure is that it can be quite damaging to the nearby soft tissue. Patients are often left with large bruises, scars, and damaged blood vessels following their procedures. That is why recovering from liposuction generally takes three or more weeks.
Smartlipo can produce the same results as traditional liposuction, but the procedure is much less invasive. Small fibers are first inserted into the skin to send pulses of energy into the fatty tissue. The laser energy breaks apart the fat to make it easier to extract. Because the fatty tissue is emulsified, we can use a smaller cannula to remove it.
Are the Results Permanent?
During this procedure in Houston, TX, our team physically removes fatty tissue from problematic areas. As long as your weight doesn’t fluctuate in the coming years, the results should be permanent. We suggest that all of our patients continue with a diet and exercise program to maintain the results.
