Are you struggling to get rid of your muffin top or your love handles? When dieting and regular exercise aren’t enough to achieve the toned body you want, you have a couple of different options to remove stubborn fat. You could choose traditional liposuction, or you can enjoy a less invasive solution using advanced technology with SmartLipo. While both methods are effective, which is the best option? Here’s what you need to know to make the right choice for your aesthetic goals.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can treat several areas when you don’t get the results you want with diet and exercise. Performed under general anesthesia and as an outpatient procedure, a tumescent solution is injected into the treatment area. It numbs the tissue while also allowing the fat cells to be removed easier. A small tube is inserted through a small incision to loosen the fat cells to allow them to be extracted.
Although the treatment has a proven track record for success, it has some drawbacks. You may experience lumpiness or uneven results. Not to mention, there can be some discomfort and downtime.
SmartLipo provides more precise results using laser-assisted technology. This also makes the procedure less invasive for an easier recovery. A laser is used to heat the treatment area, which melts and destroys the fat cells. They are then suctioned out using a small tube inserted through a small incision.
This is a gentler method that doesn’t even require general anesthesia. Since a laser is used, there’s also decreased trauma to the tissues, resulting in less bruising and swelling. You’ll have smaller incisions for minimal scaring. The technology is powerful enough to use on stubborn areas, like the abdomen, but also gentle for more delicate locations, like the neck.
