Why Smartlipo Is a Better Choice than Traditional Lipo

You’ve lost weight and whittled yourself down to your healthiest body mass index. You exercise regularly, and even though you haven’t felt this good in years, you still have those unsightly love handles, flabby thighs and buttocks, “batwings” in your upper arms, or a belly that just won’t succumb to all those crunches and planks you do. Sound familiar? You may be the ideal candidate for Smartlipo.

At Findlay MedSpa we specialize in many aesthetic procedures, including Smartlipo. Our patients are pleased with how this innovative laser technique removes stubborn fat. We serve people in and around Findlay, Ohio, and are available to answer any questions you may have regarding Smartlipo.

The rise in popularity of liposuction

Liposuction, which has been around for more than 40 years, is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures performed today. Doctors did about 250,000 liposuction procedures in the United States in 2017.

Both Smartlipo and traditional lipo remove fat cells from isolated areas of the body. Traditional liposuction uses a series of cannulas that are inserted through an incision in the treatment area. Liposuction is performed under either general anesthesia or a local anesthesia, depending on the area of the body.

The surgical venue and recovery time depend on the degree of liposuction, but you can expect to have bruising, swelling, and pain for at least a few weeks.  

Smartlipo uses a laser to literally melt the fat cells for easy suctioning. This makes it possible to remove larger amounts of fat cells. You also have a shorter recovery time and less pain with Smartlipo. Let’s take a look at some of the other reasons Smartlipo is a better choice than traditional lipo.

Smartlipo: The better choice in liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure no matter which option you choose. However, Smartlipo offers all of the benefits of laser surgery, such as less bleeding, less scarring, less intense pain, and lowered risk of infection. But Smartlipo’s additional benefits go well beyond these important advantages.

Very often, older patients or those who have a fair amount of fat cells to be suctioned are discouraged from the traditional lipo procedure. This is because the skin tends to sag after fat removal, resulting in a less sculpted, and sometimes unsightly, appearance. With Smartlipo, skin tightening is a natural side effect.

The use of lasers stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which typically diminishes with age. More collagen and elastin means more supple skin as your body recovers. The tightening effect is also due to coagulation in the tissue, which controls blood loss. This means, at least from a contouring perspective, you need not worry about age-related skin sagging as much with Smartlipo as with traditional methods of liposuction.

In addition to the more rapid recovery, Smartlipo boasts a quicker treatment time. Many patients will get the procedure on a day off, or even over an extended lunch hour. Because the recovery time is much faster, you can usually schedule your procedure as you wish, and gently jump back into your daily life with fewer risks.

When performed by an experienced professional, Smartlipo is a safer, less painful procedure than traditional liposuction. Both procedures will help you lose the stubborn areas of fat your body can’t seem to release, but only Smartlipo speeds your recovery and lessens the chance for “saggy” skin.

A healthy lifestyle + Smartlipo = A beautiful body
