Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES SMARTLIPO WORK?
Smartlipo is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure that eliminates fat, targeting trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck. Is the newest liposuction technology by Cynosure, with a breakthrough innovation system that melts the fat cell before it is suctioned out.
The whole procedure can be done entirely under local anesthesia with no damage to the surface skin. An approach that is less invasive, has less bruising, swelling and pain than traditional liposuction. At the same time, due to the heat generated by the laser, it can also tighten loose skin in the area to be treated.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME WITH SMARTLIPO?
Smartlipo allows the plastic surgeon to perform suction on multiple and large areas with minimal downtime and no surgical scars.
Being a minimally-invasive procedure, Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia. And, although some bruising may occur, most patients are typically able to return to normal activities the very next day.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SMARTLIPO?
The best candidates for Smartlipo laser liposuction are men and women who are not significantly overweight, but have accumulated fat deposits that will not respond to a healthy diet and exercise. Common problem areas that show great results in patients are love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat, or fat on the lower torso.
IS IT PAINFUL TO GET SMARTLIPO?
All Smartlipo treatments, with or without suction, can be performed under local anesthetic and light IV sedation. In comparison to the traditional surgical techniques for fat reduction, Smartlipo laser assisted liposuction brings results being far more convenient to patients, with a way less painful recovery process.
WHEN WILL I GET TO SEE THE RESULTS?
Some results are immediate, like the skin tightening in areas like the hips and outer thighs. However, in body modeling and contouring cases, it can take up to four months to see the final results. During this period and throughout the whole recovery process, there will be no stitches or debilitating aftercare. Just a very small incision that tends to heal very well and quickly.
