Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions asked about the female abdominal laser liposuction –
What is Female Abdomen Laser Liposuction?
Factors like aging, genetics, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, weight gain and poor diet can contribute to a “belly pooch” or a protruding tummy in women. Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to address the stubborn fat in the abdominal area, which is not easy to get rid of with even rigorous diets and exercise. The procedure removes subcutaneous fat that lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall.
What are the benefits of Smartlipo Technology?
One of the major advantages of minimally invasive Smartlipo is that the laser coagulates the small blood vessels to minimize bleeding, swelling and bruising. Other benefits include –
- Needs only local anesthesia
- Minimally-invasive procedure performed on an outpatient basis
- Effective and gentle fat removal
- Short treatment time and quick recovery
- Long lasting results
- Minimal pain and discomfort
- Tightens the skin
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?
Women who are planning to undergo abdominal laser liposuction must meet the following criteria –
- Be above 18 years of age
- Be in general health, without any underlying medical conditions
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome
- Has localized fat deposits in the abdomen/tummy region that are resistant to diet and regular exercise
- Have healthy skin with good elasticity and ideal body weight
- Have a healthy body weight
- Be nonsmokers
Factors like the age of the patient, location of the fat, and weight fluctuations may affect the results of the liposuction procedure.
How does the Smartlipo Triplex device Work?
The Smartlipo Triplex workstation utilizes an optimal blend of three laser wavelengths (1440nm, 1320 nm, and 1064 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. This prevents over treatment and provides optimal body contouring and skin tightening effects.
How is Abdomen Laser Liposuction Performed?
Female abdomen laser liposuction in NYC is generally performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. The surgeon first marks the specific area in the abdomen to be treated and numbs it with local anesthesia. The small cannula of the device is then inserted under the skin through a small incision. Laser energy will be delivered to target the unwanted fat cells, causing them to liquefy. This liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out.
What does the Recovery Process Involve?
As the procedure is minimally invasive, the time of recovery is much quicker than conventional liposuction surgery. Most patients return to their normal activities in 24-48 hours. Minor swelling – (which is quite normal) will be experienced by patients after the procedure which will subside soon. Taking extra care and correctly follow the plastic surgeons instructions will help to speed up the recovery process. Patients may be asked to wear a compression garment 24×7 for the first 3 weeks post-op and after that, at night for another 3 weeks. Wearing the compression garment will help reduce bleeding and swelling, and minimize the risk of seroma (fluid accumulation that can occur in the body after surgery).
When will be the Final Results of the Procedure become Visible?
The final results of abdomen liposuction will be visible within six months after the procedure or after the body has completely healed. As results may vary based on individual considerations and factors like age of the patient and location and amount of fat removed, patients should have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
Women who are planning to undergo abdominal liposuction in NYC, need to find an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery facility that provides the services of skilled and well-trained plastic surgeons. A reliable surgeon will evaluate patients carefully and provide customized treatment to help them achieve their goals.
