The accumulation of stubborn fat is one of the most common aesthetic problems men and women deal with. This type of fat does not respond well to diet and exercise alone, and oftentimes requires a little extra push with cosmetic surgery. At Youthful Images in Bloomfield, CT, our team proudly provides the SmartLipo procedure to help patients achieve bodies they can carry with confidence.
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo™ is a new laser liposuction technique that uses a new laser wavelength that specifically melts fat. SmartLipo™ uses a laser that is capable of liquefying 3-5 times as much fat per unit of energy as the other technologies. It’s a safe and effective procedure that provides substantial results with fewer risks.
- Eiminates Fat
- Skin Tightening
- Low Risk
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 strengths 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.
The SmartLipo™ consultation
When you visit Youthful Images for a consultation, you will find out more about the various details of the SmartLipo™ process. This will include a discussion of the best ways to prepare for the procedure, along with various aftercare tips. We encourage asking questions to ensure that our patients have a full understanding of what to expect.
As part of your consultation, you will talk about your cosmetic goals for this fat-reduction treatment. The areas you would like to reduce in volume will be examined, and photographs may be taken as a reference. Your medical history will also be discussed, including allergies, past procedures, and any pre-existing conditions.
SmartLipo™ recovery and healing
SmartLipo™ recovery is short, comfortable, and convenient compared to the recovery process for traditional liposuction. It often only takes 1 to 2 days to recover and get back to your everyday activities (depending on the amount of fat removed).
You will need to wear a post-surgical elastic garment during recovery in order to ensure that swelling is minimized. This also allows the skin to cling to the new underlying contours of the treated area more tightly.
Avoid taking baths, soaking in hot tubs, and performing strenuous exercises for four weeks. Once the healing process is complete, you will be able to see the full results of the SmartLipo™ procedure.
What is the average cost of SmartLipo™?
As with most cosmetic procedures, the cost of a SmartLipo treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the needs of each individual person. Please go to the Pricing Menu page for the cost range for a SmartLipo™. We will perform an assessment of your body to develop an appropriate treatment plan and discuss the exact cost of a SmartLipo™ surgery during your consultation.
