Many men and women find that unwanted body fat is not burned even with rigorous diets and many tiring exercise sessions. The best way to deal with this concern is liposuction – plastic surgery to reshape the body by removing the stubborn fat. Today, the conventional invasive surgical technique to remove excess fat has been replaced by advanced procedures like Smartlipo Triplex which is available in reliable NYC plastic surgery facilities. This minimally-invasive FDA-approved treatment involves the use of advanced laser technology to liquefy and remove the excess fat. This Smartlipo laser workstation comes with three distinct wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) that a skilled plastic surgeon can use to deliver optimal results.
Conventional Liposuction and Smartlipo compared
There are many differences between traditional Liposuction and Smartlipo. The conventional method is an invasive treatment, uses general anesthesia, and involves long incisions and stitches. On the other hand, Smartlipo is minimally invasive with only tiny incisions to insert the tiny laser-assisted cannula for fat removal. This laser treatment is quick and efficient and no stitches are needed to close the incisions. While both methods are effective for abdomen liposuction and for treating other large areas, the minimally-invasive laser treatment is an ideal option for delicate areas such as the chin and jaw line as well as “love handles” and saddlebags.
How Smartlipo Works
People who are physically fit, close to their ideal body weight, and have realistic expectations are considered ideal candidates for Smartlipo Triplex laser lipolysis. The procedure starts with injecting a local anesthetic to numb the area where fat is to be removed. After making a tiny incision in the area, the surgeon inserts the small cannula to deliver laser energy to melt and breakdown the unwanted fat. The liquefied fat cells are then suctioned off. The laser energy also coagulates the tissues and tightens the skin.
The benefit of this treatment is that bruising is minimal. Unlike the surgical treatment, it also involves a downtime of just 1-2 days in most cases. Patients remain awake as local anesthesia is used. Initial results are seen in about 1-3 months and final outcomes at 6 months, though this can vary among patients.
Proper After-care is Important
After the procedure, watch your diet and stay hydrated. You have to take adequate rest before resuming your normal activities. It’s also important to take proper care of the incisions and keep your follow-ups with surgeon as scheduled to ensure that recovery is progressing well.
