How SmartLipo Can Help Build Body Confidence

Have you made a concerted effort to work out and eat right only to be taunted by pockets of fat that won’t go away? SmartLipo® could be the solution you need.

While liposuction can remove stubborn fat from your body’s problem areas, most patients need to spend at least a few weeks recovering from the swelling, soreness, and bruising. That’s not the case with SmartLipo.

With SmartLipo, the procedure is minimally invasive and the downtime is also minimal. At Findlay MedSpa, Carmen Doty-Armstrong, DO, can take care of your problem areas using this revolutionary system.

How SmartLipo works

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive system that uses lasers to melt fat. First, Dr. Doty-Armstrong makes a small incision in or near your problem area. Then, she slides a very thin tube into the fat cells.

The tiny tube emits laser energy that heats the fat and causes it to melt. The melted fat then gets sucked away gently. During the process, your skin and other tissues around the treatment site tighten. That means you won’t get loose, flabby skin after a SmartLipo procedure.

Some patients report mild discomfort from the procedure, but SmartLipo doesn’t require general anesthesia that makes you unconscious. Instead, local anesthesia is used.

You can expect your SmartLipo session to last 1-2 hours depending on the area being treated and the amount of fat you want to lose. After your SmartLipo treatment, you may have some slight bruising that needs to heal. Most patients can return to their normal activities within two days.

SmartLipo vs. traditional liposuction

SmartLipo has several benefits that make it a better treatment option for most patients than traditional liposuction.

The amount of downtime required matters a lot to our patients. With SmartLipo, you just have to take it easy for a couple of days. With traditional liposuction, you may need to spend two weeks or longer recovering.

The reason downtime is quicker with SmartLipo is because it takes a less-invasive approach. With SmartLipo, Dr. Doty-Armstrong only needs to make a tiny incision to insert the laser tube. With traditional liposuction, surgeons have to make larger incisions, which can cause lots of pain and take longer to heal.

The laser heat used in SmartLipo also makes it a more effective treatment option than liposuction. As the laser melts fat, it also tightens skin and other tissues. Traditional liposuction doesn’t tighten tissues, so you may come out of your surgery with loose skin and find yourself even less confident about your body.
