Considering Smartlipo®? Here's What You Need to Know

Smartlipo®, also known as laser-assisted lipolysis, is the gentler cousin of traditional liposuction. This procedure removes localized fat deposits with the help of a tiny tube called a cannula and laser technology. 

The laser technology uses heat to break down fat cells. When heat is used to disrupt fat tissue, the tube required to suction out the fat is smaller, which makes for a less invasive procedure.

This novel fat-removal technology is increasing in popularity, so we asked our expert at NUWA WORLD, Dr. Uzoma Nwaubani, all about it. Read on to discover the benefits of using Smartlipo and find out if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

Smartlipo benefits 101

You may be asking yourself, “What are the benefits of Smartlipo and is it better than traditional liposuction?”

The answer depends on your goals. Laser lipolysis is best for removing smaller, targeted fat deposits and creating an even final look, while traditional liposuction can remove far more fat tissue but doesn’t come with the added benefit of even body contours. 

With Smartlipo, you can expect a reduced risk for scarring due to smaller incisions and a smaller suction tube, as well as tighter tissues due to the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing mechanisms in the targeted area. You can also expect a faster recovery that allows you to return to your daily routine within days. 

You also get the benefit of undergoing local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia, reducing your risk for complications. 

Who’s the right candidate for Smartlipo?

Smartlipo isn’t a weight-loss tool, but it can be used by people who are moderately overweight to remove pockets of fat that don’t respond to calorie counting and exercise. 

It’s suitable for both men and women, and it can remove fat tissues in the hips, abdomen, inner knees, upper flanks, and chin area.

While Smartlipo is suitable for patients of all ages, diminished skin laxity can pose some issues. Smartlipo can help tighten loose tissues, but it can’t address severe sagging of the skin. 

If you smoke, you may be asked to quit for at least a few weeks before the procedure as smokers have a tendency to scar more and heal more slowly.

Shed the fat and pile up the confidence

With summer approaching, don’t postpone wearing the clothes you love just because you have a few stubborn layers of fat.
