Smart Lipo Can Help Reduce Stubborn Fat While Improving Skin Tightness and Body Contours

While you try your best to attain your dream body with diet and exercise, sometimes, it’s simply not enough. It might be time for Smart Lipo, a popular treatment that reduces fat while improving skin texture and enhancing curves.

Schedule a Smart Lipo consultation at Novo Aesthetics Medical Spa in Ridgefield, CT, today. 

What Is Smart Lipo?

Smart Lipo is a fat reduction procedure that removes stubborn fat and improves body contours. 

How does Smart Lipo set itself apart from other fat reduction methods? It adds the power of laser energy to the standard liposuction procedure. This laser energy serves many purposes; for example, it makes the procedure easier on the body, leading to less discomfort and quicker recovery. 

Additionally, the heat of the laser triggers collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein produced by the body that helps with many functions, including keeping skin strong and tight. With the assistance of laser energy, this liposuction procedure can leave skin more toned and tightened. 

Smart Lipo can be done in various areas, including the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees 
  • Neck

In addition to removing fat, laser liposuction can significantly reduce cellulite and promote overall skin rejuvenation. 

What Is the Difference Between Smart Lipo and Traditional Liposuction?

Smart Lipo works similarly to traditional liposuction. Both procedures remove fat to improve body curves and contours. However, the biggest difference between the two procedures is the laser skin tightening effects of Smart Lipo.

Traditional liposuction only removes fat. Because there are no skin-tightening benefits, this could potentially leave skin loose or deflated. 

Additionally, the Smart Lipo cannula is smaller. It requires a smaller incision, and the laser helps break up fat before it is removed through the cannula. This feature means that recovery after laser lipo is usually easier and quicker than after regular liposuction. 

While traditional liposuction works great for many patients, we often recommend laser lipo for patients seeking to lose some fat and tighten skin with a procedure that requires minimal downtime. 

What to Expect from a Smart Lipo Procedure

Unlike regular liposuction, which is often performed under general anesthesia, Smart Lipo uses local anesthesia. We will numb the target areas, but you will be awake during the procedure. You shouldn’t expect to feel anything except for some movement and tugging. 

To begin the procedure, we make tiny incisions to insert the cannula with the laser. We’ll carefully move the laser around the target area, allowing it to melt the fat as it is suctioned out through the cannula. We will repeat this process in every treatment area.

Once the procedure is completed, we clean the treatment sites and apply dressings and a compression garment. 

Advantages of Laser Lipo

These are just a few of the multitude of reasons patients prefer this fat reduction and body contouring procedure:

  • Effective reduction and removal of stubborn fat
  • Quick treatment time
  • Less downtime and shorter recovery than traditional liposuction
  • Tighter, smoother skin
  • Significant reduction in cellulite and signs of aging
  • Long-lasting results

Smart Lipo Body Contouring: Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re considering Smart Lipo, you likely have questions. Below, we’ve answered some of the questions our patients regularly ask, but should you have additional concerns, we can discuss them during your consultation to help you feel informed and confident before moving forward. 

What Is Downtime Like After Smart Lipo?

Downtime is minimal after Smart Lipo. You’ll need to wear a compression garment for about a week to promote lymphatic drainage. We can provide personalized recommendations to minimize any discomfort and speed up the recovery process.

Many patients feel comfortable enough to return to work a day or two after their procedure. 

When Will I See Results?

Right after your Smart Lipo procedure, you might notice a difference in the appearance and contour of the treatment area. However, the final results take some time. 

More visible results are often seen within about a week, but you can expect to see continued improvement over the following three to six months.

Are the Results of Smart Lipo Permanent?

Yes, the results are long-lasting. Laser liposuction permanently destroys fat cells in the target site, and fat cells don’t typically regenerate.

However, the remaining fat cells in the area can grow. To maintain your results, you should eat a healthy diet and live an active lifestyle.

Will I Need Multiple Smart Lipo Treatments?

No, most patients achieve optimal results with just one procedure. 

How Do I Know Whether Smart Lipo Is Right for Me?

Smart Lipo can work for many different patients of varying body types. However, qualified candidates usually meet the following requirements:

  • Are in good health with no serious medical conditions
  • Have skin with only mild to moderate laxity
  • Have stubborn fat deposits in the areas that are treatable with laser lipo
  • Are within range of their ideal body weight 

When you come in for your consultation, we can discuss your wants, needs, and ultimate goals. Based on the information provided and examination of the potential treatment areas, we can determine whether Smart Lipo could successfully give you the results you desire.
