WHAT IS A SMARTLIPO? - BODY SURGERY
SmartLipo or “laser lipolysis” is a procedure in which excess body fat is removed by the use of a laser. It is considered to be a less invasive surgery than traditional liposuction methods.
During the procedure, a laser fibre is inserted into the pocket of fat which generates energy to melt the fat cells; the fat is then removed with gentle suction. This obviates the need to perform traditional liposuction techniques which can be more traumatic to the body.
For more information, please see the section on Liposuction.
IS THIS PROCEDURE SUITABLE FOR ME? - BODY SURGERY
This type of procedure is usually sought by those who have excess body fat which they have been unable to shift through diet and exercise.
Candidates should not be significantly overweight and be in general good health.
This procedure is good for small bulges of fat and can generally be used on most parts of the body.
WILL IT LEAVE A SCAR? - BODY SURGERY
This procedure is performed using very small incision points therefore any scarring should be minimal. Any scarring which may occur usually fades in the months following surgery.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST? - BODY SURGERY
SmartLipo permanently destroys fat cells in the area where the procedure is performed. However, to maintain best results, it is recommended that you follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
CAN SMARTLIPO BE COMBINED WITH OTHER PROCEDURES? - BODY SURGERY
Yes. SmartLipo can be part of a full tummy tuck and can be successfully combined with almost all other procedures.
