Smart Lipo Procedure
SmartLipo Procedure is usually confused with regular Liposuction itself, but the two are completely different. Regular Liposuction can be very time consuming and leave you in a lot of pain. SmartLipo uses a unique laser that targets fat cells and liquifies them to destroy them permanently. Use of a laser allows you to recover quickly and with little to no pain. SmartLipo is a safe, less invasive procedure, and can easily help you get back to the body that you want and deserve.
Traditional Liposuction is safe for areas of the body such as the abdomen, arms, back, thighs, knees, and ankles. SmartLipo can also safely remove excess fat deposits in these same areas. SmartLipo is becoming more and more popular because it leaves the patient with smoother, tighter skin, faster recovery time, and less bruising and pain than experienced with Traditional Liposuction. Liposuction in Atlanta is also a great procedure to receive if you have previously undergone Traditional Liposuction and are unhappy with your results.
An Ideal Candidate includes individuals who have smaller excess fat deposits on their body. SmartLipo uses a laser instead in simply sucking the fat out, so the results will be slightly different from that of traditional liposuction. Everyone interested in SmartLipo should understand that this is not a replacement for major weight loss surgery. Ideal candidates should meet most or all of the criteria listed below:
