Surgical liposuction is a popular procedure that removes unwanted and unsightly fat from your body. It offers rapid results for those who desire a more contoured silhouette, but cannot successfully reduce some areas of fat with diet and exercise. Smartlipo™ is a laser-assisted liposuction treatment that offers exciting outcomes for those who wish to reduce fat from certain areas, but are not quite sure about the invasiveness or recovery that accompanies standard liposuction. Smartlipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure designed by Cynosure, a top developer of aesthetic laser systems, that can help you reveal a slimmer, more contoured face, neck, arms, waist, and/or thighs.
If Smartlipo™ sounds right for you, Versailles Medical Spa is proud to help. Schedule a consultation with a member of our team to learn more. Versailles Medical Spa’s office is in Darien, CT, located between Stamford and Norwalk.
Ideal Smartlipo™ Candidates
Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. You should see a marked decrease in the fatty areas that don’t respond well to exercise and diet changes, but it is important that you don’t rely solely on the procedure for weight loss or weight management. If you’re eligible for traditional liposuction, you are most likely a great candidate for Smartlipo™ as well. Those who may attain the best results from Smartlipo:
- Are in great health overall
- Are within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight
- Have realistic expectations
- Maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen
Much like traditional liposuction, Smartlipo™ requires the use of incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. However, due to the laser lipolysis technology, both the cannula and incisions are smaller than those used during traditional liposuction procedures. During your procedure, a member of our team will move the handheld laser device back and forth beneath the skin. As fat cells come into contact with the laser, they will begin to swell and liquefy. Next, the liquefied fat will be suctioned away with the cannula. An added benefit of the procedure is that the laser lipolysis system stimulates collagen production, which will help tighten and tone the skin during recovery.
What to Expect
While the Smartlipo™ procedure is minimally invasive, it will still need to be completed by an experienced professional. The anesthesia employed for your surgery will depend upon the treatment areas. The procedure usually lasts around an hour per area. Following surgery, you should expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects are normal and will likely subside in the coming weeks. Results will be noticeable within about six weeks of the surgery.
