Smartlipo Laser Liposuction

SmartLipo targets hard-to-shed pockets of fat by using a laser to melt excess fat.

Smartlipo Laser Liposuction Side Effects

SmartLipo can result in infection, excess bleeding, skin irregularities and textural changes, noticeable scars, and blood clots. Swelling, bruising, and lumpiness are also common reactions.

Who shouldn't use it: Individuals who are pregnant or have given birth in the last three months should not consider SmartLipo. Abdominal SmartLipo is unsuitable for those who have had abdominal surgery or who have abdominal disorders (like hernia, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease).

SmartLipo may be dangerous to patients with an intolerance to anesthesia, lidocaine, epinephrine, or who have a history of heart failure, keloid scar formation, or poor wound healing.

Drawbacks: Magical as the fat melting wand may sound, be realistic. Though the technique can remove up to 3,500 mL of fat, (that's the equivalent of seven pounds) SmartLipo can leave your skin lumpy and uneven, and it won't drop you from a size 12 to 2 overnight.

Recovery Time For Smartlipo Laser Liposuction

Most SmartLipo patients can return to work two days after the procedure. Avoid strenuous activity for two weeks.

After care for Smartlipo Laser Liposuction: A compression garment may need to be worn for one to two weeks to minimize swelling and help the treated area heal faster.
