Smartlipo in Houston, also known as laser-assisted liposuction/laser liposuction/laser-assisted lipolysis, is a minimally invasive liposuction treatment that aims to remove unwanted fat from your body and promote skin tightening with faster recovery. It has the goal of helping you contour your body into the shape you want. It is an ideal option for patients who need a helping hand to get over the final hurdle of their body contouring journey.
Unlike traditional liposuction in Houston, Smart Lipo® uses laser energy to kill and remove fat cells, stimulate collagen production to help tighten the loose skin, and coagulate the blood vessels preventing excessive bleeding and bruising, ultimately cutting down the downtime and speeding up the recovery process.
Results from your Smart Lipo procedure in Houston may be immediately noticeable and will improve as the body begins to heal.
After the procedure, it will take a few weeks to recover. However, full recovery, including returning to normal activities, will take about 2-3 weeks.
Ideal results can be seen at 4-6 months.
Smart Lipo is an FDA-approved fat removal procedure and is widely considered to be safe and effective.
It is typically performed using local anesthesia for the patient, which cuts down on anesthesia-related risks and complications when compared to traditional liposuction using general anesthesia.
During Smart Lipo, the laser fiber is introduced into the body through tiny holes after local anesthesia.
Laser energy will liquefy any unwanted fat, which can be removed with suction or absorbed through the lymphatic system.
Laser energy will also help with skin tightening by stimulating collagen production.
Vaser lipo uses ultrasound energy to dislodge the fat compared to laser lipo which uses laser energy to liquefy the fat cells.
Patients are given oral or IV sedation before the procedure.
To help with anxiety and pain, patients also use PRO-NOX, which is the nitrous oxide gas to use for relaxation.
