Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today. However, traditional liposuction involves older tactics that are invasive and come with lots of downtime. At the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery, Dr. Durvi Patel and her medical team provide laser liposuction in the Yardley, Pennsylvania area.
SmartLipo™ is an advanced technique that revolutionizes the liposuction procedure. We’re proud that we are one of the first practices in the United States to offer this treatment option. We continue to be one of the leaders in this procedure and other new technologies for cosmetic surgery.
The SmartLipo™ Procedure
Unlike traditional liposuction, you aren’t under full anesthesia during the procedure. Your doctor will use local anesthetic for the treatment area, and not put you to sleep. Because the cannula for SmartLipo is so small, your doctor will make very small incisions that will rapidly heal. They’re small enough that they don’t require stitches.
The small cannula has a laser fiber that runs through it. This laser comes into contact with the fat cells that are in your body. Then upon contact, the fat cells liquefy. The doctor will move the cannula in a fanning motion to ensure that it melts all of the fat in the troubled area.
After these fat cells are melted, the liquefied fat is gently sucked out of the body. Due to the heat from the laser energy, the blood vessels in this area are coagulated immediately, so you have less bleeding. The laser also helps with skin tightening due to coagulation and thermal heating. The overall effect on your skin is smoother.
The Ideal Liposuction Option in Yardley, Pennsylvania
SmartLipo has many benefits over the traditional form of liposuction. Since it’s much less invasive, you have fewer side effects. There’s less bleeding, swelling, and bruising, making your recovery time quicker. In addition, you will not need stitches. Instead of needing weeks of recovery time after your procedure, you’re able to go back to work within a few days.
Traditional liposuction also doesn’t have the skin tightening aspect that laser lipo does. The results are less smooth and you may be left with saggy skin. SmartLipo tightens skin while it’s removing the fat from your body. It can help with cellulite and the sagging skin that you may experience in the targeted area.
It’s extremely precise, making it useful for almost any part of the body. This includes smaller areas like your arms, chin, or neck. The results you get are lasting and you’ll continue to see improvement for months after the procedure, in addition to seeing results immediately. Most patients only need one session to get their desired results.
