What Is SmartLipo® Phoenix and Scottsdale?
This laser liposuction surgery works by permanently removing fatty deposits from the thighs, arms, thighs, abdomen, or chin. With this procedure, we can help you with issues such as jowls, saddlebags, or love handles. Click here to review before and after pictures.
What Is Involved in the Process?
Prior to the surgery, a local anesthetic is administered, which means you’ll remain awake during the surgery. A small incision, about the size of a pen tip, is then made. A small tube or cannula is used to destroy and liquefy the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. In turn, new collagen is generated which tightens the area.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
SmartLipo® takes, on average, about two hours.
What Is Involved in the After-Care?
Typically, the patient is required to wear a compression garment or bandage after the procedure.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Usually only one treatment is needed.
Who Is the Best SmartLipo® Candidate?
The surgical technique is frequently recommended for Phoenix and Scottsdale patients who cannot smooth or tone certain body areas through exercise or diet alone. Therefore, healthy individuals who maintain an active lifestyle and follow a nutritious eating plan can benefit the most from the surgery.
When Are the Results Seen?
Generally, results are seen after a week with continued improvement noted over a six-month period.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results are permanent as long as you exercise regularly and follow a balanced and healthy diet.
What Are the Primary Benefits of the Surgery?
Patients who opt for SmartLipo® experience less trauma and bleeding and a quicker healing time. In addition, the procedure encourages tightening of the tissue, thereby toning and firming areas that exhibit laxity.
