What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is modern form of liposuction that you can find in the right medi spa. It uses laser energy to liquefy your fat. Instead of having the hideous scars in a result of liposuction, this procedure reduces and then removes the fat through a cannula, which is a small tube inserted through one tiny incision.
In some cases, you will find a medi spa that will allow the melted fat to remain in the body, which will absorb it and eventually eliminate it. The procedure will tighten your skin to reduce your body size. You will receive fewer side effects, as opposed to other liposuction procedures. Your amount of downtime will decrease as well. People who benefit from SmartLipo have a faster recovering time.

SmartLipo Compared to Traditional Liposuction
You will experience similar side effects with SmartLipo but they will be minimal compared to traditional liposuction. With tradition liposuction, you are under general anesthesia instead of the local anesthesia that SmartLipo requires. You will also see scarring associated with stitches. Your downtime is roughly 7 days long and you would need to wear a compression garment for 6 weeks as opposed to 2 weeks with SmartLipo.

SmartLipo is a relatively new procedure in the medi spa world. It does have a high success rate with minimal side effects. With any procedure you must weigh your options and choose the one you feel will benefit you the most and that you are able to live with the results.
