More of individuals are bothered about surplus fat deposits in various areas of the body which are difficult to get rid of even with rigorous dieting and exercise. Excess fat can be removed by liposuction surgery which can be done using traditional methods or laser-assisted SmartLipo technology. Generally, a person who is a good candidate for traditional lipolysis is a good candidate for laser-assisted body contouring procedures too. However, there are some important things you should know when making the choice between SmartLipo and traditional liposuction.
>> Traditional liposuction is considered ideal for patients who need to have large volumes of fat removed. Traditional liposuction is not recommended for delicate areas such as the face, neck, chin or arms. SmartLipo laser lipolysis works best for this. SmartLipo Triplex, for instance, works with three laser wavelengths to melt adipose tissue so that it can be easily removed.
>> SmartLipo is also suitable for individuals with skin laxity, which traditional techniques cannot resolve. Loose and sagging skin may persist even after traditional lipolysis and such skin can be tightening and firming only using laser enabled technology. Laser lipo can also effectively treat lipomas, gynecomastia or oversized male breasts, and for body sculpting.
>> The SmartLipo technique employs only local anesthesia unlike the conventional method which needs general anesthesia. Instead of going to the sleep state during the surgery, the patient remains awake, which reduces the risks to the patient.
>> The conventional method needs larger incisions and the large cannulas for removing the fat. With laser liposuction, the minimally invasive cannula needs just a tiny incision. A smooth appearance is ensured as the laser melts the fat within the body itself before suctioned out.
>> Apart from removing the surplus fat from diverse areas such as abdomen, buttocks, love handles, saddlebags, hips, thighs, knees and calves, the extended capabilities of SmartLipo Triplex can be used for abdominal laser etching which helps men achieve six pack abs.
>> Traditional methods usually involve a much longer downtime and recovery period, whereas with advanced SmartLipo patients can return to normal life within 2 to 3 days. Significant bruising and trauma may be evident in the conventional method, but these issues are minimal when laser lipo is used.
Unlike the traditional liposuction, the advanced laser method is not meant to reduce large volume of fat but to treat pockets of fat in specific targeted areas. To ensure safety of the procedure when using SmartLipo, the laser needs to be calibrated accurately. Such issues are not a concern with the right plastic surgeon. Moreover, only a surgeon who is experienced in using the latest SmartLipo technology and has a successful track record in cosmetic surgery can offer the best results. As the saying goes, it’s the carpenter and not the hammer that makes the difference. The right surgeon would also advise you on which technique is most suitable to resolve your specific issues. To ensure your safety and standardized procedures, it is also important that the procedure is performed in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice.
