Do you have problem areas that don’t respond to exercise and dieting? Perhaps you’re one of the many who want to achieve a slimmer figure but postpone their visit to a medical professional because you’re afraid of undergoing major surgery like liposuction.
Here’s some good news: Smartlipo® comes with all of the advantages of liposuction but without the general anesthesia, large incisions, and lengthy recovery period.
To update you on the newest body contouring procedures, we asked Dr. Uzoma Nwaubani at NUWA WORLD in Wildwood, Florida, all about Smartlipo. Read on to find out how it works what benefits it offers.
Spot-reduced fat with Smartlipo
Smartlipo is a body contouring cosmetic procedure, which means it can target specific body areas but doesn’t lead to weight loss throughout the body.
The best candidate for this procedure is someone who is close to their ideal weight or overweight and has stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
With Smartlipo, you can eliminate fat deposits in the following areas:
- Upper leg
- Lower leg
- Neck and chin
About two months after the procedure, you should start seeing results. At the six-month mark, you’ll see the final results after your skin tightens and the area is no longer tender.
Although the final results take a while to notice, recovery isn’t lengthy. Most people experience some swelling and tenderness, but they can return home and do light activities around the house two days after their Smartlipo procedure.
The results from traditional liposuction aren’t always smooth. Some people who undergo liposuction notice lumps and bumps. This can occur because removing fat cells is challenging and some residual fat may be left behind.
When performing a Smartlipo procedure, Dr. Nwaubani uses a laser to heat up the tissue and make it easier to remove fat cells. This leads to even, bump-free results.
The laser also stimulates collagen, which tightens skin after the procedure. Skin tightening results vary from patient to patient, but you should see some changes in your skin just a few months after Smartlipo.
The results of Smartlipo are permanent. Once the fat cells are removed, they can’t grow back.
Dr. Nwaubani uses one or two small incisions to introduce the cannula, a device used to remove the fat. The incisions are so small — around 1.5 mm — that no stitches are necessary.
As you heal, you may notice some darkening of the skin. However, as time goes on, your skin should heal by itself without leaving any scars.
