Smart Lipo is one of the most technologically sophisticated tool used in cosmetic surgery that issafe and effectiveto sculpt a desired contour in comparatively lesser time and discomfort. It is an innovative procedure that can not only remove excess of body fat but can also firm the loose or saggy skin. The technique can very well transform the appearance of a person by reversing age effects and removing excessive fat from the specific stubborn areas of body that generally do not respond to even strict diet and exercise.
Traditional liposuction procedure uses a cannula which is inserted in to the targeted area to break and then remove the fat cells. But Smart Lipo is an improved and minimally invasive procedure that utilizes temperature sensing cannula and medical-grade laser energy to create a powerful light beam that can break and melt the fat cells without traumatizing any of the nearby blood vessels, nerves, and other soft tissues. Smart Lipo also provides greater control and incomparable precision to the surgeon so that he can perform the procedure with best results.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Surgeon directly inserts a tiny probe or cannula that has a low-energy laser fiber attached to it into the fatty area. The laser energy first liquefies the fat cells and then these fat cells are drained away from the body without affecting surrounding tissues and toning the body perfectly. In addition to liquefaction, the laser energy also heats up the skin to trigger healing process and stimulate growth of collagen for smoother and better results.
