There is nothing more frustrating than struggling with stubborn fat. Especially if you have been committed to a healthy diet and exercise, these problem areas that refuse to budge can leave you feeling like you will never reach your goals. Fortunately, body sculpting procedures like SmartLipo™ are here to help. So if you are curious about preparing for SmartLipo™, here is what you need to know.
Finally Achieve Sculpted Results
The beauty of SmartLipo™ is that it permanently removes excess fat from the areas you struggle with most, like the hips, knees, abdomen and arms. Thanks to SmartLipo™’s innovative technology, only the treatment area will be numbed. This means that, although you will be awake during your procedure, you will not feel any pain. And since this technique uses coagulation to tighten the skin, there’s no need to worry about dimpling or sagging.
Take Care of Your Body
Some of the most important steps you can take in preparation for your SmartLipo™ are to follow a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet and lifestyle will set you up for success even after your SmartLipo™ procedure. This is due to the fact that although the fat cells targeted during your procedure will be eliminated forever, it is still possible to gain weight. In order to make the results last for the long-term, it is important to maintain proper care of your body.
Consult With Your Doctor
Another preparation essential to your success is speaking openly with your doctor. There are some supplements and medications you may need to discontinue in advance of your procedure. Although the specifics will vary depending on the individual, blood thinners are almost always necessary to discontinue, so as to reduce the chance of unnecessary bleeding and bruising.
