What Is Smart Liposuction

Liposuction is an invasive procedure, but some advanced forms are minimally invasive techniques, allowing people to achieve the same contouring goals with fewer side effects or complications.

Smart liposuction is not a weight-loss technique but a method to eliminate stubborn fatty tissues you can remove through exercise and diet. Smart liposuction uses laser technology to eliminate hard-to-remove fat from your body.

Unlike traditional procedures, smart liposuction has fewer side effects and a quicker recovery period, making it one of the most reliable and safer cosmetic procedures. Make sure you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon to make the most out of this procedure and achieve your desired results.

What Is Smart Liposuction

Smart Liposuction Procedure

Smart liposuction is a laser-assisted procedure that triggers the body’s fat-melting mechanism. During the procedure, the surgeon uses a cannula, a tube-like device to administer a laser into areas that contain stubborn fatty tissues.

The laser heat penetrates deep into the tissues and softens the stubborn fat. As a result, fatty tissues undergo the melting process, allowing the surgeon to eliminate the melted fat without any problems.

For example, once melted, the surgeon sucks the fat cells out of your body. Compared to the traditional surgery that requires larger incisions, involves blood loss, and may lead to higher infection risks, smart liposuction has fewer complications and a faster recovery period.

Smart Liposuction Benefits

There are numerous benefits of smart liposuction. For example, traditional liposuction uses a cannula or tube-like device to suck the stubborn fat out of your body. On the other hand, smart liposuction is a minimally invasive or non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology to melt and remove fat from your body.

Smart liposuction can help you lose inches of stubborn fat under your skin. Because traditional liposuction has higher risks of saggy skin, smart liposuction reduces cellulite to prevent sagginess and contour irregularities.

In addition, smart liposuction has a faster recovery period. Because smart lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, it does not cause a lot of discomfort, inflammation, swelling, and pain in the healing area. You can resume your daily tasks within 1-3 days compared to traditional liposuction, which requires weeks.

Smart Liposuction Recovery

Recovery time for smart liposuction varies from person to person because it depends on various factors, such as the body part that underwent treatment, the amount of fat removed, and overall health condition.

However, the average smart liposuction recovery period is between one and three days following the surgery. You can resume day-to-day activities, such as light exercise, within three days. Moreover, you can get back to cardiovascular or strenuous exercise activities within ten days.

Your surgeon will advise you to wear a compression garment for seven days following the surgery to reduce discomfort, soreness, bruising, and pain. Following your health provider’s instructions is directly proportional to a speedy recovery. Otherwise, you will experience complications like infections, more pain, and Lipo scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Difference Between Smart Lipo and Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction involves a larger incision and cannula insertion to suck fat beneath the patient’s skin. Although the procedure removes fatty tissues, it may cause severe complications, such as fat necrosis, infections, and other problems if the patient fails to follow the provider’s guidelines. On the other hand, smart liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, leading to accurate results, a well-contoured body, and quicker recovery.

How Much Fat Can Be Taken Out with Smart Liposuction?

Research shows that smart liposuction can remove 10 to 12 pounds of excessive stubborn fatty tissues. However, this depends on various factors, particularly your body to mass index (BMI).

How Long Before You Can Go to The Beach After Smart Liposuction

Going to the beach after traditional liposuction is safe within 4-5 weeks. However, you can go to the beach within a few days after smart liposuction. Remember to follow your surgeon’s guidelines for outdoor activities.

What are the Side Effects of Smart Liposuction?

Although smart liposuction is much safer than traditional surgery, it has a few downsides, such as minor swelling, mild discomfort, and pain during the recovery period. Some patients also experience bruising, numbness, and tenderness. The good news is that these side effects go away within a few days.
