Smartlipo™ is a form of liposuction that is less-invasive that traditional liposuction. A laser is used to essentially melt the fat, making it easy for removal through suction. Because the fat gets emulsified prior to surgery, typically Smartlipo™ helps the plastic surgeon to remove more fat than traditional liposuction.
The plastic surgeons at Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery in Washington D.C. suggest if you’re considering laser liposuction or Smartlipo™ that you are in good health before undergoing the procedure.
Their facility is the only surgical facility in the DC Metro Region certified by Cynosure, the manufacturer of Smartlipo™ equipment, as a training center.
Smartlipo™ can be performed under local anesthesia, while traditional liposuction is done under general anesthesia. This makes recovery go quicker and allows you to be back to your typical routine with 1-2 weeks.
Is Smartlipo™ right for you?
Smartlipo™ can benefit almost everyone. The ideal candidate is in good health, has one or more fatty areas that have not responded well to diet and exercise, and wants the fat removed from those areas.
What are the advantages of Smartlipo™?
Smartlipo™ offers the smoothest and best body contouring results. Because it is performed under local anesthesia, recovery time is short, and patients are back to normal activities very quickly. It is safer than more traditional methods of liposuction and the results last longer, if not permanently.
