Laser liposuction is a popular treatment that can target stubborn pockets of fat. SmartLipo™ has proven to be an effective solution to refine areas of the body that were previously deemed impossible or difficult to treat. Areas prone to accumulating fat include the knees. Thanks to advances in technology, liposuction can now target such areas as the knees to help patients strive for more defined legs. Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery offers knee liposuction in Philadelphia, PA for patients who want to get rid of fat around the knees.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Knee Liposuction?
Who wants to get knee liposuction? Many people feel this procedure is necessary. There are also various reasons why they feel they need it. Genetics plays a pivotal role in where stubborn pockets of fat will accumulate in our body and some of us are simply predisposed to storing it around the knees. Age and lifestyle factors also contribute to fat storage. People who live an inactive lifestyle and consume an unhealthy diet are more likely to store fat even around the knees.
The ideal candidate for knee liposuction is someone who is in good overall health. You must be close to your ideal, healthy weight and have realistic expectations about your results. If you have made lifestyle changes, adopted a proper diet and exercise into your daily routine, and still have fat knees, then you may qualify for this procedure.
Knee Liposuction in Philadelphia, PA
SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive laser liposuction technique making it a great procedure to target fat knees. The additional benefit is that the laser also stimulates collagen production which will promote skin tightening for smoother results.
During the procedure, your doctor will make a small incision around the inner knee. They will place a small tube inside the hole that will use laser energy to liquefy the fat cells. Then, those liquefied fat cells are vacuumed out.
Once the desired amount of fat is removed from around the knees, your doctor will close up your small incisions. This is an outpatient procedure that does not require an overnight stay. SmartLipo’s precision ensures minimal damage to surrounding tissues and reduced downtime.
Recovery from SmartLipo™ on the Knees
SmartLipo™ offers a faster recovery period compared to traditional liposuction. Even though the procedure will still require anesthesia, patients will bounce back quicker. Resuming light activities within a few days and returning to regular activities within a couple of weeks is permitted.
After laser lipo on the knees, you should expect mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling. We will recommend wearing a compression garment to help control the swelling.
