SmartLipo is a less-invasive procedure that uses laser technology to remove small areas of unwanted fat from the body. Since it was first introduced in 2006, it has quickly gained favor with patients and physicians alike for its safety level and excellent results. In his latest SlideShare presentation, Dr. Joel Schlessinger addresses your questions and concerns regarding SmartLipo.
The recovery time for SmartLipo is much faster than traditional liposuction, says Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
During the SmartLipo procedure, a thin laser is inserted into a small incision. The laser is able to target and liquefy fat cells so that they may then be removed using a small, sippy-straw-sized cannula. Because the cannula is so small, it can pass through the skin easily without difficulty. Thus, the recovery time for SmartLipo is significantly decreased. Patients can typically return to work one to two days after receiving a SmartLipo treatment. In fact, we have seen patients who worked the day after the procedure and even had one doctor who flew home (yes, he flew the plane) the day after the procedure!
Dr. Schlessinger safely and effectively treats areas on the back, flanks, thighs, hips, knees, chin and neck at his Omaha clinic using SmartLipo technology.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger cautions that SmartLipo is not a viable form of weight loss.
The SmartLipo procedure is not designed to remove very large areas of fat, nor is it a good way to handle weight loss. Dr. Schlessinger cautions that if you’re hoping to use SmartLipo to lose weight, you won’t. Liposuction and SmartLipo are about size, not weight. While you can elect to have SmartLipo anytime, Dr. Schlessinger recommends waiting until you’ve finished having children before seriously considering the procedure.
The best candidates for SmartLipo are those patients who lead an active lifestyle and are within 25 pounds of their goal weight, but who still struggle with stubborn, localized pockets of fat. SmartLipo is also perfect for those who would like to touch up or improve previous traditional liposuction results as SmartLipo has the finesse to improve these areas greatly.
