Smartlipo® or liposuction surgery is an exciting new development in body contouring. It offers fit, active people in NYC and Long Island, the ideal liposuction treatment they’ve been seeking – one that’s both effective and less invasive. Smartlipo can eliminate stubborn love handles, saddlebags and other bulges with a fast, easy recovery. With Smartlipo, our surgeons can remove pockets of fat from your abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, upper arms and neck.
What is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo uses a technology called ‘laser lipolysis’ to destroy fat cells. A small surgical wand known as a cannula delivers laser energy to areas of fatty deposits, rupturing and liquefying fat cells. The fat is then suctioned away, or in some cases left to be eliminated through natural body processes. Either way, the fat cells are permanently removed.
As the laser energy passes from the cannula into the tissues, it seals blood vessels and reduces the bruising and swelling that can accompany traditional liposuction. It also stimulates collagen and tissues to contract, leaving skin looking tightened and toned. Treatment time is often shorter than with other methods of liposuction in NYC.
Most liposuction patients require just local anesthesia for treatment and experience minimal bruising and swelling. In addition to its fat-blasting benefits, Smartlipo can help tighten and tone your skin.
Smartlipo offers our surgeons greater flexibility in treating their patients. The technique can be used along with traditional liposuction, helping to treat small or difficult areas. It can be used alone to treat localized fat deposits, and it’s often very effective in refining results after traditional liposuction. It is very effective at achieving skin contraction and in some patients eliminates the need for a tummy tuck.
