SMART LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY

SmartLipo Laser Liposuction is a new, innovative laser-assisted procedure that can be used alone, or in combination with tumescent liposuction, to achieve superior results when combining fat removal with skin tightening.

Like tumescent liposuction, SmartLipo removes fat through a cannula inserted into small openings in the skin. However, with SmartLipo, a laser is used to first melt the fat, helping with extraction and resulting in less swelling and bruising for faster recovery. In addition to melting pockets of fat, the laser energy also induces collagen growth while tightening lax skin.

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive treatment that only requires local anesthesia—enhancing client safety and reducing the likelihood of side effects. Typically only one short treatment session is needed, enabling you to get back to a normal schedule quickly.

Those “love handles,” “bat wings,” “muffin tops,” “saddlebags” and jowls that don’t respond to exercise and diet? They improve dramatically with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging.

Here’s how it works
Local anesthesia is used (you’re awake during the procedure)
A tiny incision is made, about the size of the tip of a pen
The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes The fat cells are permanently destroyed The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out
New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening
Typically, only one treatment is required dependent on the number of areas to be treated.

Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.After Smart Liposuction

After Laser Liposuction

Recovering from laser-assisted liposuction has proven to be easier than recovering from traditional liposuction procedures. For one thing, there are no stitches to deal with. Because the surgeon’s incision is so small, no stitches are needed to close the skin. Many people will feel a bit sore after their procedure, but so far studies have found no risk of any serious side effects. Because the laser closes off small blood vessels as it moves under the skin, there is less chance of bleeding, swelling and bruising than with conventional liposuction.

Some nutritional supplements help speed wound healing while others reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort such as pain and itch. Others are recommended to prepare your body for the intense experience and increase resilience. We have done a blog post on those that are benificial to your recovery after Laser Liposuction here

Within a day after surgery, most patients can slowly resume their normal activities although doctors advise that they avoid strenuous exercise or hot tubs for about two weeks. Wearing special compression garments for a week or two after the procedure can speed healing. These close-fitting elastic garments can also reduce swelling.

Most people start seeing results within a week after the procedure, but it can take up to a full six months to achieve the final look. In the majority of cases, people need only one laser-assisted liposuction treatment to see results. However, some go back for minor touch-ups. It is possible to retreat the same areas, but patients need to wait at least four months between procedures. Laser-assisted liposuction also can be done before or after regular liposuction to hit hard-to-reach areas.

Laser-Assisted Lipo vs. Conventional Lipo

Conventional liposuction can remove more fat from larger areas than laser-assisted liposuction, but it does have a greater number of potential complications. This table shows how the two techniques stack up:[/fusion_text]

Laser Liposuction Traditional Liposuction
Uses Small areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, and loose skin Larger areas of fat (but it won’t fix the bagginess of loose skin):
IAreas Treated Face, jowls, neck, arms, loose skin, male breasts, Abdomen, Hips and Thighs Thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hips, male breasts
Anesthesia Local anesthesia Local, epidural or general anesthesia:
Complications Soreness, minor bruising Bleeding, bruising, infection, dimpling or rippling under the skin if too much or too little fat is removed, blood clots, fluid accumulation, swelling, nerve damage
Recovery Minor discomfort. Patients can go back to work within one or two days, but need to avoid strenuous exercise for about two weeks. Pain, soreness, or burning for a few days to a couple of weeks after surgery. Swelling continues for four to six weeks. The doctor will remove stitches or they will dissolve after about 10 days. Patients need to avoid exercise and strenuous activity for about a month.

Vaser Lipo Vs Laser Lipo

Smart Lipo Vs Vaser

Vaser Lipo Vs Laser Lipo

Ever wondered about the differences between VASER Liposuction (or just VASER Lipo as we call it) and Laser Lipo? Are you thinking of a non-invasive fat removal treatment or liposuction but aren’t sure which procedure to choose? There are lots of procedures and treatments out there claiming to zap fat and banish it forever in some way. It’s hard to know what to believe when you can tell what will work and what is overrated. Vaser Lipo Vs Laser Lipo we look at the comparisons below.

Fat removal procedures come in all shapes and sizes, just like people. It’s quite right that people come in all shapes and sizes – diversity is great – and the same can be said for fat removal procedures. You have non-invasive, minimally invasive and surgical treatments and procedures capable of targeting fat in some way, and it’s important there’s choice for patients. Not all patients will want the same things from their treatment, so it’s good to explore and have a range of options to look at. Below is a guide to one of the biggest discussions we have: VASER Lipo vs. Laser Lipo.


VASER Lipo

VASER Lipo is often touted at the top end of the fat removal treatment scale for its effectiveness. There’s little doubt it works – you can see the fat after it’s been taken out, and some patients even like to take pictures of the extracted fat. Just look at before and after VASER Lipo shots to see these patients have transformed.

VASER Lipo is minimally invasive, and downtime is minimal compared to traditional liposuction, but there are some downsides. Recovery can be uncomfortable for some patients (effective pain medication is given to managing any discomfort), patients must be relatively close to their target weight and cannot be obese. It’s not a weight loss solution, more of a body sculpting and fat removal procedure so expectations may need to be adjusted. However for the right patients, it can help. It’s popular for a reason.

The body is extraordinarily complicated, and fat distribution is largely determined by genetics. Some people have problem areas around the abdomen and thighs while others have issues with their breasts and flanks (love handles). You can’t spot reduce fat, and even personal trainers can tell you it can be hard to shift fat from stubborn areas. We don’t all have hours and hours each day to train and so many healthy people turn to VASER Lipo to treat permanently their problem areas.

Laser Lipo

Next down the scale in fat removal treatments is often laser lipo. Various generations and machines exist to target fat with lasers; some remove the fat with suction-assisted liposuction while other treatments leave it up to the body to flush the fat away and out through excretion. Laser Lipo is suited to people who want to target small areas and who may not want VASER Lipo or non-invasive fat targeting treatments. Whereas VASER Lipo uses ultrasound to break down the fat cells from the surrounding tissue, Laser uses heat.

Laser Liposuction (Smart Lipo)  is a procedure that helps to melt fat and tighten skin on the face and body. The safety of the Laser Liposuction treatment is well documented. The laser energy melts fat that is then suctioned out of the body via a cannula or eliminated safely through your liver. The laser energy also heats up the collagen fibres under the skin causing the collagen fibres to contract.  This tightening leads to an improvement in loose skin, cellulite and the appearance of stretch marks.

The full effects of the treatment may take up to 3 months as it takes 90 days for collagen fibres to regenerate themselves. You will see continued improvements for up to 12 months.

Laser Liposuction involves the use of a light sedation and most patients usually return to work within 1-2 days.
