Smart Lipo is a combo approach

SmartLipo can help Huntersville and North Charlotte, NC residents get rid of excess fat. Though part of the name of the procedure, lipo, sounds familiar to most people, most will not know what the “smart” part entails and why this method of removing fat has become so popular lately.

Q. What is SmartLipo?

A. SmartLipo is a combination of lasers and liposuction to remove fat. The laser is inserted into the skin using a tube and used to heat up fat cells. This melts the fat and makes it easier to suction out using liposuction. Hence, the name SmartLipo.

Q. What are the benefits of SmartLipo?

A. SmartLipo offers many benefits over traditional liposuction procedures. First, by melting the fat, it makes it easier to remove which can leave patients with less bruising and better results afterward. 

Second, the laser can help tone the skin as the fat is being removed. And finally, since the laser will heat up the skin, it will stimulate the production of new collagen. Collagen is what gives skin its firmness and elasticity. In short, this treatment offers better results for patients than traditional liposuction or other fat reduction methods. 

Q. Who is a good candidate for SmartLipo?
A. Though this can help many people lose weight, it is not the right solution for everyone. People who have a large amount of weight to lose may not be the best candidate. A good rule of thumb is that if you are more than 20 percent overweight, SmartLipo is not the best option for you.

If your weight regularly fluctuates, SmartLipo may not be the solution for you. This treatment works best on people who are able to maintain a steady weight.

Finally, SmartLipo candidates should be relatively healthy. Smokers or people who drink a lot of alcohol may not be able to tolerate the procedure. 

Q. When can I return to work?

A. After SmartLipo, you should plan to take a few days off work to recover as you will likely have some swelling and bruising. Follow your provider’s instructions regarding recovery and be sure they clear you before you return to any activities.
