What You Should Know About SmartLipo™Liposuction / By paul.solomon Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic medical procedure in America today. While liposuction itself is often used to help those individuals who want to lose a large amount of weight, there are other patients who are merely looking to smooth, contour, and shape their bodies. For these people, SmartLipo™ may be the right choice. What is SmartLipo? SmartLipo is a procedure that uses laser liposculpture in order to create the desired effects in places that are normally not able to be treated by traditional liposuction. These include: Waist Hips Arms Face Thighs Chin Other small or hard-to-reach places Is SmartLipo A Substitute For Exercise And Diet? SmartLipo is not a good substitute for exercise and diet because it is not meant to be used on someone who is far from their ideal weight. The procedure only uses a small incision so those who are still struggling with more intensive body weight issues should consider another method. SmartLipo is best for those who need attention in small, problem areas that are not responding to typical weight loss methods. Is SmartLipo Effective? According to a study from the NCBI, “Liposculpting of the body and face with the SmartLipo MPX has given excellent, predictable and long-lasting results.” The study lists over 60 successful cases of SmartLipo being used everywhere from the abdomen and thighs to the neck and cheeks. And, as long as the individual continues to eat right and exercise, these results can last for a very long time. When Will I See Results From SmartLipo? You will see results immediately from your SmartLipo procedure and these will improve over the course of several months. While many individuals feel the need for additional procedures after liposuction because of excess skin and other issues, SmartLipo leaves the skin tight and smooth, and most patients do not see a need for further procedures.
