What is SmartLipo™?
SmartLipo™ is a popular minimally invasive procedure that involves removing fat from target areas. The most commonly targeted areas include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
SmartLipo™ is a specialized type of liposuction that combines traditional liposuction with a laser that utilizes three different energy wavelengths to melt the fat while also making the procedure less traumatic and minimally invasive.
How Much Does SmartLipo™ Cost?
SmartLipo™ costs vary from person to person. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer a range of payment options for our patients, including financing through CareCredit®. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your payment options and help determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. We will also provide you additional information individualized to your specific needs and goals.
Am I a Candidate for SmartLipo™?
SmartLipo™ is a great option for adults dealing with excess fat in specific areas. It is ideal for those who have been unable to reduce fat from these areas despite exercising and following a proper nutrition regimen. If you have multiple specific areas that you’d like to remove fat from, this procedure might be recommended for you.
How is SmartLipo™ Performed?
SmartLipo™ in Lake Jackson and Houston combines the use of tiny incisions, which is done in traditional liposuction, with the use of a laser. The laser is placed into the skin through the incisions made where the energy of different wavelengths directly targets fat cells. This energy helps heat up the target areas and liquefy fat. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned and removed. The laser also helps with the recovery process by sealing off the surrounding blood vessels, which can minimize bruising and bleeding.
What is Recovery Like After SmartLipo™?
Recovery after SmartLipo™ is minimal, and you can return home the same day of the procedure. A compression garment should be worn on the treated areas to help speed up recovery for a few weeks. In most cases, you can return to your normal daily routine within a day or two.
How Long Will My SmartLipo™ Results Last?
You’ll typically notice your SmartLipo™ results within a week. These results will continue to improve as the skin tightens over the course of a few months. Results from SmartLipo™ in Houston and Lake Jackson can last for a lifetime, as long as fat is not regained in the treated areas.
