SmartLipo™ is a new laser liposuction technique that uses a new laser wavelength which specifically melts fat. SmartLipo™ uses a laser which is capable of liquefying 3-5 times as much fat per unit of energy as the other technologies.
Benefits of SmartLipo™ laser
SmartLipo™ has a number of claimed benefits that makes it superior to the old laser liposuction procedures. One of its greatest strength is that it not only helps in fat removal but also assists the patient to shorten collagen fibers and therefore tightens the skin. SmartLipo™ is also safer than the traditional laser treatment. This is because the fiber optic is flexible and can emit a wider laser area. As a result, the strength of the laser beam can be reduced, which in turn reduces the probability of the patient suffering from internal injuries due to the strong laser heat. Finally, in terms of recovery, SmartLipo™ results in less bruising for the patient. This means they will have a faster recovery time.
Dr. Felice has always tried to develop less traumatic techniques for liposuction. He has used syringe techniques as opposed to large vacuum type machines for over 20 years in an effort to minimize swelling and bruising. As a complement to the syringe technique, he has found laser assisted liposuction (SmartLipo) to enhance the contour of the treated area and improves skin tone.
What is the average cost of SmartLipo™
The average price of SmartLipo™ is $1,900 per area plus anesthesia and operating room time.
