Although Popular All These Fat Removal Procedures Require Thought On Your Part
What is Liposuction?What is the difference between traditional liposuction and laser assisted Smartlipo ? They both involve removing fat from underneath the skin. Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove fat from areas of the body. Smartlipo is a form of laser assisted fat removal. Traditional liposuction can mean longer recovery times because it involves sucking fat out of fat deposit areas with a long tube called a cannula.
Liposuction removes deposits of excess fat to improve body appearance and to smooth irregular or distorted body shapes. Smartlipo is performed with local anesthesia. Liposuction is often performed with general anesthesia. The procedure is sometimes called body contouring. Traditional liposuction surgery requires larger incisions to be made around the area that is being treated. Smartlipo uses a shorter tube and a laser beneath the skin.
Smartlipo is a form of laser assisted body contouring. A laser is inserted into the area where the fat is. As you can see in the video, Smartlipo uses a laser fiber enclosed in a thin tube that is inserted through a 1-2 mm incision in the skin. The laser breaks down the walls of fat cells and liquefies the fat allowing it to be removed from the area with minimal bleeding and damage to the underlying tissues. Smartlipo has a shorter recovery time than more invasive traditional liposuction.
