Explore the Differences Between Lipo and SmartLipo™

SmartLipo If you’re interested in a fat loss procedure, you may have already heard of liposuction, a cosmetic surgery that removes fat through the usage of a small tube known as a cannula. However, Dr. Andrea M. Doyle offers a revolutionary take on this traditional procedure called SmartLipo™. SmartLipo works by destroying the targeted fat cells before removing them from the body, resulting in slimmer, tighter results than traditional lipo alone. If you’re interested in liposuction, consider if SmartLipo could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

How Does SmartLipo Work?

SmartLipo is a laser liposuction procedure that is FDA-approved for reducing fat. The procedure utilizes three types of laser wavelengths to destroy fat cells before they are removed through a small tube known as a cannula. The laser also stimulates collagen production, which tightens and smooths the skin.

How Does SmartLipo Differ From Traditional Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction utilizes a cannula to loosen and remove fat cells while your surgeon shapes and sculpts your figure. Although this can be effective at removing fat, it may not give the results many may desire. Liposuction can leave behind loose skin and extra tissue, causing the skin to sag.

However, since SmartLipo utilizes a laser to target fat cells and stimulate collagen production, it can help patients achieve a tighter, slimmer appearance. This eliminates excess tissue, shrinking body volume. Meanwhile, collagen renews the skin, helping it appear rejuvenated, youthful, and tight.

When Will I See the Results of My SmartLipo Treatment?

Traditional liposuction has immediate results, but it may take two to three weeks to see its full effect as there may be some bruising and swelling. SmartLipo, on the other hand, provides results within a week and continuing improvement over the next three to six months as collagen production continues.

Plus, patients can generally return to their normal routine in two to three days, while those who have liposuction may not be able to do so for one to three weeks.

Schedule a SmartLipo Consultation

Candidates for SmartLipo include anyone looking to address areas of stubborn fat on the body, including the neck, arms, stomach, back, hips, and more. Patients should also be in generally good health and nonsmokers. If you’re interested in this procedure, schedule a consultation with Dr. Andrea M. Doyle to determine if you are a candidate today.
