The abdomen is one of the areas where fat tends to build up easily and is difficult to rid of. Conventional weight loss measures don’t provide the desired results when it comes to abdominal fat. Liposuction surgery is the gold standard to address this concern. The procedure removes excess fat and provides men and women with a flatter, well-shaped tummy. A minimally invasive procedure, Abdominal liposuction in NYC is another effective option. However, many people hesitate when it comes having an invasive procedure. A prospective patient posted this question on the RealSelf Platform: “Is there a noninvasive modality to help with the contouring of the abdominal area?”
Replying to the question, an expert plastic surgeon says that it’s hard to compare noninvasive modalities with invasive or minimally invasive ones. While noninvasive procedures usually provide a 20% change and would take 3 months to show results, minimally invasive procedures such as Smartlipo would provide 100% results in two weeks (after swelling starts to subside).
Conventional liposuction surgery is considered the best option for addressing larger deposits of excess fat (American Board of Cosmetic Surgery). However, it is invasive and requires general anesthesia. Minimally-invasive fat reduction options such as Smartlipo laser liposuction in Manhattan may be a better choice for patients who are at their ideal weight and have smaller areas of stubborn fat. This minimally-invasive procedure is performed using local anesthesia. It removes subcutaneous fat that lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall and simultaneously tightens the overlying skin.
This advanced laser-assisted lipolysis device utilizes three different laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm) to liquefy the fat cells and tighten the skin simultaneously safely and effectively. Its three intelligent delivery systems SmartSense™, ThermaView™ and ThermaGuide™, deliver the laser energy in the right proportion, achieving the desired body contouring and optimum skin tightening. With Smartlipo, there is less bleeding, swelling and bruising than in traditional liposuction. The treatment can effectively contour the abdomen and result in a flat belly. Patients experience only minimal scarring, pain and discomfort. Most patients return home on the same day as the procedure have reduced treatment time and patient downtime, and promotes faster healing and quick recovery.
