WHAT IS SMARTLIPO?
Smartlipo™ is an innovative procedure for removing excess body fat and firming loose skin. Through the use of a single laser fiber that is introduced into the body through a small cannula, the medical providers at Hehr Aesthetics can literally melt fat away! Smartlipo removes stubborn fat deposits and tones the body while also tightening the skin. Smartlipo can transform the way a person looks, by eliminating areas of fat that fail to respond to dieting and exercise.
BEFORE RECEIVING TREATMENT
Before receiving treatment, a required consultation is needed to assess your overall health as well as determine Smartlipo is best suited to treat your areas of concern. After a determination is made, your medical provider at Hehr Aesthetics will assess the treatment area and recommend their professional opinion for optimal results. The patient will have an opportunity to ask questions, receive a quote, and determine next steps.
In this minimally invasive procedure, a medical provider from Hehr Aesthetics inserts a tiny probe containing a low-energy laser fiber directly into the targeted fat deposit. The laser destroys the fat cells, which are then drained away, but has virtually no effect on the surrounding tissue. The entire Smartlipo procedure usually takes less than an hour for each targeted area and can be performed under local anesthesia. The use of the laser ensures a clean, nearly painless procedure, with minimal scarring. Though no surgery is completely free from risk, Smartlipo™ has proven to be one of the safest cosmetic procedures.
Due to swelling and potential bruising, patients typically take a few days off to rest. During this time, patients should eat a low sodium diet, and refrain from any strenuous activity. Results should be visible immediately after surgery, though the best appearance is usually seen a few months after surgery.
