Beverly Hills area patients ask, what is SmartLipo?
When patients learn about fat removal techniques, they are often introduced to traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction is a procedure in which unwanted fat is removed from the body using a cannula that suctions out the fat. There are several concerns with this conventional treatment, including:
- First, the procedure can be rather invasive. It can result in scarring, bruising, and extensive downtime.
- Second, the treatment is known for leaving sagging skin. The only way to address this is with further surgical treatment such as a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin and tighten the area.
- Third, liposuction in this manner needs to be done with complete sedation. Instead, Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will suggest an alternative known as SmartLipo.
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a liposuction procedure that is done in a different manner than traditional liposuction. SmartLipo is laser-assisted lipolysis that is done in a similar manner but has a wide variety of benefits that far exceed conventional surgery. This method of treatment allows patients to be awake during the procedure, reduces the downtime experienced, and minimizes bruising and swelling. Patients will be able to see dramatic and permanent fat reduction in just one procedure. The best part of SmartLipo is the laser’s ability to stimulate collagen production, which in turn tightens the skin and reduces sagging often associated with traditional means.
