One of the most difficult and oldest battles is excess weight. Sometimes the best possible diet and exercise routine are simply not effective. The specifics of how any extra weight is stored depends on numerous factors such as metabolism, genetics and lifestyle choices of each individual. Millions of people across the globe have learned the hard way the most difficult parts of the body to lose weight are the abdomen, thighs, neck, arms and face. A lot of people have successfully treated this undesirable fat over the years with traditional liposuction. This procedure involves the use of a small tube called a cannula. This is used to suction out the fat from underneath the skin. There is another option offering an easier procedure with a decreased period of recovery. This body contouring procedure is called Smart Lipo.
The procedure is basically a newer and improved take on traditional liposuction. The procedure uses a laser to heat the fat until it begins to melt and liquefy. This means the fat is a lot easier to remove through the use of the cannula. The reason this procedure has gained so much popularity is because of the many benefits not found with traditional liposuction. The key advantage of this treatment is the cannula necessary for the surgery does not need to do nearly as much work for the fat to be effectively suctioned out. This is because the laser softens the fat prior to the use of the cannula. This is important because traditional liposuction usually leaves swelling and bruising behind in the areas where the fat was removed by the cannula. All of the fat in the area targeted is also able to be removed through the newer technique.
Eating a healthy and nutritious diet is just as important as exercising on a regular schedule. This being said, when this does not result in the desired loss of fat, Smart Lipo is quickly becoming the next logical step in the process. Unfortunately, the best possible efforts to lose weight are not always successful. This procedure has been dubbed the improved and new version of traditional liposuction because it actually melts the fat away. The procedure has very limited downtime, is considered minimally invasive and provides excellent results. Another key benefit is unlike traditional liposuction, this procedure tightens the skin because of the effects of the laser. The reason this is so important is because although traditional liposuction does get rid of the pockets of fat, the procedure can leave loose, dimpled, and saggy skin behind.
Having the ability to help ensure tight skin once the fat has been removed is an extremely important consideration. Another major advantage of the procedure is the decrease in the period of downtime necessary. The majority of individuals felt fully recovered from the procedure within just a few days. Most of the surgeries currently available for removing excess fat require a downtime of several weeks. Some of the results from the procedure are available immediately. The optimal results generally become apparent within a couple of months. For the last two decades, the majority of individuals turned to traditional liposuction to remove excess fat and contour their bodies. As the popularity of the procedure increased, the number one cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States eventually became body contouring.
Smart Lipo is an excellent option if you are struggling with excess deposits of fat. This is an effective way of achieving your personal goals for your body. It is important to understand this procedure is not meant as a tool to replace weight loss. The procedure was created for individuals who have already tried to lose the pockets of fat through exercise and diet only to be unsuccessful. Sometimes there are isolated sections of fat that simply will not respond despite your best efforts. This is where this procedure becomes so important. Traditional liposuction is a lot more invasive and requires anesthesia. These are contributing factors to the more difficult period of recovery including painful bruising and swelling. All of this has changed due to the new procedure using a laser.
The procedure offers more controlled and precise results. As time has passed, this type of liposuction has become widely accepted and regarded as a better alternative. The procedure is effective with benefits outweighing traditional liposuction. The reason this type of liposuction is so effective is because it was created using significant scientific advances and the latest technology available for body contouring from the past two decades. The procedure is a revolutionary, fast, precise and safe way to mold and sculpt your body when diet and exercise do not provide the desired results. The procedure is classified as a lipolysis treatment. There are eight years worth of clinical research supporting the results. More research has been conducted regarding this procedure than nearly any other laser lipolysis treatment available.
The cannula used for the procedure is very small. The size is roughly the same as the tip of a pen. This tube is inserted beneath your skin. Energy from the laser is delivered through the tube right to your fat cells. This is what causes these cells to rupture and liquefy. A gentle suction is then used to remove the liquefied fat. The technology is both safe and unique, incorporating three different laser wavelengths. This ensures improved tissue tightening and better fat removal. The removal of the pockets of fat triggers your production of new collagen. This results in firmer and tighter skin. You should be able to resume your regular activities or return to work in just a couple of days. There are a lot of advantages to this procedure including:
• Only one treatment is necessary
• Faster recovery period
• Removes deposits of fat
• Does not leave severe swelling and bruising
• Less invasive as opposed to traditional liposuction
• The procedure is safe
• Tightens and smooths the skin tissue
This procedure is appropriate for both men and women. The best candidate is interested in improving the contours of their body through the elimination of stubborn pockets of fat. The individual should have already tried to eliminate the fat through exercise and diet. The individual should also be interested in obtaining a more chiseled and slimmer body contour and enhancing their shape. The procedure is the most effective for individuals no more than 20% overweight with elasticity to their skin and some muscle tone. This provides important support for the tissues as they heal. The laxity of the skin is important. The procedure can effectively tighten moderately and mildly lax skin once the pockets of fat have been removed. This is one of the reasons so many people above the age of 35 choose this procedure instead of traditional liposuction.
The procedure is an excellent option for getting rid of fat from most of the areas of the body. This includes the thighs, abdomen, face, back and upper arms. This means in most instances, the procedure is effective no matter where the excess fat is located. If you are considered a good candidate for the traditional liposuction surgery, you will be for this procedure as well. The best candidate has maintained their weight for a minimum of six months and is a non smoker. The person should want to remove excess deposits of fat to sculpt their body because they were unable to do so through diet and exercise alone. You can have more than one area treated in a single procedure. This means numerous different areas of your body can be effectively treated without having to repeat the procedure. The best way to begin is by setting up a consultation to make certain you are a good candidate and to ask any questions you may have.
The Procedure for Smart Lipo
The device used was exclusively designed for the laser liposuction procedure. The actual laser fiber is contained inside of an extremely thin tube. A small opening is made to insert the laser fiber into the areas with the pockets of fat. Thermal energy is delivered by the laser fiber to the fat cells. This is what liquefies the fat so it can be removed easily. The fat is literally melted by the laser so it can be removed through a gentle suctioning. During this process, coagulation causes a tightening of the tissue in the areas. This leads to an overall smoother shape.
If the area being treated is smaller, the medical professional may enable a natural drainage of the fat. The procedure helps stimulate your natural collagen production to tighten your skin. This provides a contouring effect generally seen in three to six months. The procedure is performed in the office of the medical professional so you will not have to spend the night in a hospital. The procedure is minimally invasive with less downtime than traditional liposuction. You should be back to your regular activities within a couple of days.
In most cases, only one treatment is required. Smart Lipo is an excellent choice for your love handles, neck, arms, saddlebags, bra fat, jawline, and knees. The procedure is also effective for enlarged male breasts in addition to the sagging skin so often resulting from pregnancy and childbirth. Some results can be seen immediately, others take about a week, and your optimal results become noticeable in a matter of months. To ensure you receive optimal results from the procedure, it is important to follow an exercise regime and consume a healthy and balanced diet prior to your procedure.
The Benefits of Smart Lipo
• General anesthesia is not necessary. The average length of time required for your procedure is ninety minutes to two hours. This is dependent on the areas being treated. You do not need to spend the night at the hospital. You should be able to resume your regular daily routine within a couple of days.
• If you have any scarring it will be extremely minimal. The size of the openings are so small, stitches are not necessary. In most cases, the insertion of the cannula is in skin creases and folds. This means if there is any scarring, it is well hidden.
• There have not been any clinical side effects with this procedure as opposed to the longer period of recovery and side effects reported with traditional liposuction.
• The cannula is so small, it can easily be moved to different sections of your body. This means the cannula is being moved much closer to your skin to help prevent any disruption of your skin layers and tissues. The way the cannula is moved during traditional liposuction often results in a lot of bruising and swelling.
• There is a lot less trauma to your tissues because the fat is liquefied prior to being suctioned. Not only are the pockets of fat eliminated, your skin is tightened as well.
• Traditional liposuction often results in sagging and loose skin once a lot of fat has been removed. There is significantly less sagging with the laser lipo procedure because your skin is effectively tightened by the laser. The final result is less fat, tighter skin and improved body contours.
