How Smartlipo body contouring works
Smartlipo is the first laser-assisted liposuction procedure to be FDA approved and is hands-down, one of the most sought after minimally invasive liposuction procedures today. Cutting edge laser technology equips Dr. Osborne with precise body contouring capabilities, meaning unbeatable results and little to no downtime for you.
Similar to traditional liposuction, the minimally invasive Smartlipo procedure is performed using a very small tube known as a cannula, which Dr. Osborne will carefully insert into the fat layer below the skin. However, the difference is the laser fiber inside the cannula creates heat energy, causing fat cells to rupture and liquefy, making it easier than ever for Dr. Osborne to remove areas of unwanted fat from your body.
At the same time, the heat energy causes tissue around the treated area to condense and contract, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. This means an all-around slimming of your figure without some of the looseness or sagging that other body contouring procedures like liposuction often leave behind once the fat is gone.
Why choose Smartlipo for your body?
Smartlipo provides patients with a long list of benefits including:
- Smartlipo offers smoother, unmatched body contouring results.
- A shorter recovery time, which means getting back to your daily activities in just 24 hours rather than weeks.
- Laser technology allowing for a more precise, safer treatment than traditional liposuction. This means less bruising, swelling and discomfort after your treatment.
- Much less painful than traditional methods of liposuction.
- Skin is tightened to match a slimmer shape and avoid loose skin or sagging in areas where fat is removed.
- The Smartlipo treatment is performed under local anesthesia rather than general sedation.
- Smartlipo provides patients with results that last.
Other body contouring treatments are more invasive and will require you to spend days or weeks on the couch at home recovering. Choosing Smartlipo with Dr. Osborne is a smarter way to beat the bulge and get the body that you deserve.
What areas of the body can Smartlipo treat?
Smartlipo has been designed to treat localized pockets of fat all throughout the body in places that become resistant to traditional weight loss methods over time. Dr. Osborne can use Smartlipo to remove your unwanted fat from areas such as the:
- Waist (love handles)
- Chin & Neck
- Inner & outer thighs
- Hips (muffin top)
- Upper arms
- Male breasts (gynecomastia)
Whether it’s a muffin top, love handles or a double chin you’re struggling with, Smartlipo can help provide for a smoother, tighter contouring by eliminating the fat and maintaining skin elasticity.
Are you right for Smartlipo in Puyallup?
Smartlipo body contouring is not a method of weight control or a quick answer to obesity. Smartlipo is a procedure designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that have become unresponsive to diet and exercise. As you get older, you are more likely to develop one or more problem areas of fat around your body that can be nearly impossible to get rid of despite healthy nutrition and regular physical activity. If this sounds like you, Smartlipo may be the right treatment for you.
The ideal Smartlipo candidate should be healthy and fall within 20 lbs of their ideal weight with specific hard to lose areas of fat around their body. In order to get the most out of your Smartlipo body contouring treatment with Dr. Osborne, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle moving forward.
What is the recovery time for Smartlipo?
An advantage of Smartlipo is that it’s performed under local anesthesia, so there is no need to recover from general sedation. Being awake under a local anesthetic during your procedure allows for a much quicker and easier recovery period involving much less discomfort, bruising and swelling.
Patients who have the Smartlipo procedure on a Friday can often be back to work on Monday and be back to full levels of activity just a day or two later. Most people who undergo traditional liposuction will need to miss at least a full week of work.
What should I expect from my Smartlipo results?
Coming out of your Smartlipo treatment with Dr. Osborne, you may feel a bit bloated, but you are able to return home right after with the help of a loved one. Patients will often choose to have their Smartlipo procedure in Puyallup performed close to the weekend so that they feel completely ready to head back to work that coming Monday.
Your Smartlipo treatment will help to reduce the stubborn areas of fat that you have been trying to get rid of and will also tighten the surrounding skin. You can expect to see initial results within just two weeks and your final results with optimal skin tightening within six months.
For the best results from your procedure, it is important to continue living a healthy lifestyle. While the fat has been removed from your body, this does not mean you can now adopt a lifestyle of sitting on the couch and watching television all day as you enjoy your new body. Without maintaining regular physical activity and a healthy diet, your body may develop NEW fat cells over time. Patients who live a healthy life after their Smartlipo procedure will not see the fat come back and can maintain their new, slimmer figure for a long time.
