You exercise regularly and you’re in pretty good shape, but there are parts of your body that simply won’t shape up. If this sounds like you, you may be a good candidate for Smart Lipo Sculpting. This treatment can help patients of Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center, with locations in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA, achieve a sleek, toned figure.
How Much Fat Can You Lose With Smart Lipo Sculpting?
Treatment varies with each patient, but we can usually remove up to 10 pounds of fat during this treatment. That’s enough to take a couple of inches off and, in most cases, fully resolve the patient’s problem area. But Smart Lipo isn’t a weight-loss treatment, and it won’t significantly lower the number you see on the scale. The success of this treatment lies in its ability to sculpt the body and get rid of stubborn problem spots.
Smart Lipo makes it possible to slim down areas that have been unresponsive to diet and exercise while keeping the curves you like. It gives patients greater control over their silhouette than regular weight loss. Smart Lipo can give you a slimmer, more fit, and more youthful physique.
What Is Smart Lipo Sculpting?
Smart Lipo uses laser-assisted lipolysis to shape and sculpt the body. This treatment, which is sometimes referred to as Laser Lipo, uses laser energy to get rid of areas of unwanted fat while also tightening the skin. It is a less-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, and it can be used all over the body, from the hips and thighs to the bra line and the jawline.
When performing Smart Lipo, we’ll make a small incision in the area of concern and then insert a tiny tube capable of transmitting thermal laser energy. As the tube gently sweeps beneath the skin, it will liquefy fat and siphon it out of the body. The skin in the area also coagulates as a result of the laser heat, leaving the treatment area smooth, firm, and youthful.
Are Smart Lipo Sculpting Results As Effective as Regular Liposuction?
Smart Lipo offers results that are just as good, if not better, than traditional liposuction. This treatment’s ability to melt fat before it is removed allows us to achieve more refined results and blend the boundary between treated and untreated parts of the body. And Smart Lipo’s ability to smooth and tighten the skin is something that regular liposuction doesn’t offer.
In addition to the fantastic results it offers, Smart Lipo tends to be an easier treatment with a faster recovery time. Because the laser energy makes it easier to remove fat and requires a smaller incision, Smart Lipo is a less physical and less involved approach.
What Benefits Are Associated With This Treatment?
It Helps You Target Specific Spots
Even if you’re in terrific shape, there’s a good chance you struggle with excess fat or skin in a spot or two. And if you’re on a diet and exercise plan, you can’t always control where on the body you’re losing fat. That’s where Smart Lipo comes in. This treatment allows you to get rid of fat in very specific parts of the body, giving you more control than ever over the way your body looks.
It’s a Custom Treatment
This treatment can be performed all over the body to achieve the degree of improvement you want. Some patients come to us looking for a modest reduction in fullness along the bra line. Others want to noticeably slim down their thighs or upper arms. Once we’ve had a chance to meet with you and talk about what you’re hoping to achieve, we’ll be able to design a treatment plan just for you.
It Delivers Great Results
This treatment won’t help you lose a significant amount of weight, but it can noticeably improve your figure by toning down areas of unwanted fat that otherwise won’t budge. Patients find that this treatment can finally help them achieve the figure they’ve been working toward. Once you’ve had Smart Lipo, your clothes will fit better and you’ll feel great about the way you look.
Smart Lipo is a fairly convenient way of getting your body to where you want it to be, especially when compared to regular liposuction. This outpatient treatment requires just a few days of recovery and quickly puts you on a path toward a sleeker, contoured physique.
It Can Be Used on More Than One Area
Patients sometimes opt to have more than one area of concern addressed during their treatment. If you’re interested in tackling two or more problem spots at once, we can be able to design a treatment plan that addresses all of those at the same time.
How Is This Treatment Performed?
This is an outpatient treatment that is often performed with local anesthesia. Aside from light pressure, you won’t feel any discomfort during treatment, and you’ll be able to head home later that same day to recover. The entire treatment can usually be performed in a couple of hours, depending on how many different areas the patient is having addressed.
What Is Recovery Like?
Patients generally spend a couple of days resting at home before returning to work. Depending on how many areas you’re having treated and where they are, you may be asked to refrain from exercise and other rigorous activities for a week or more. As you recover, you also may be asked to wear a compression garment, which will fit tightly over the treatment area and facilitate healing. This garment will also help the skin mold to the body’s new shape.
How Quickly Will My Body Change?
This treatment removes some fat directly from your body, and additional fat cells will be naturally disposed of in the following weeks. This means you’ll see some changes in your body almost right away, and your results will continue to develop over the next month.
How Long Will My Results Last?
This treatment permanently gets rid of fat cells in the area, which means you’ll never have to worry about those problem zones again. You’ll want to continue exercising and eating right, though, because this treatment won’t protect against future weight gain elsewhere on the body.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You’re Already in Pretty Good Shape
The ideal candidate for this body contouring treatment is already in pretty good shape and is within 30 pounds of his or her goal weight. These are patients who just need a little help shaping up that last spot or two.
You’re in Good Health
Patients who undergo this treatment should be in good overall health and should not be pregnant. Patients should also be emotionally healthy and have realistic expectations about what Smart Lipo can accomplish.
Your Skin Retains Elasticity
Although this treatment can tighten skin and help it conform to the body’s new shape, the best patients also have skin with some degree of natural elasticity. Elastic skin is more easily able to adapt to the change in the body.
You Can Commit to a Healthy Lifestyle
Smart Lipo gets rid of targeted fat cells for good, but it will be up to you to maintain your overall physique through a healthy lifestyle going forward. The best patients can commit to eating right and exercising long-term.
Smart Lipo Sculpting Q&A
Is This a Solution for Cellulite?
This type of liposuction gets rid of unwanted fat, which is a contributor to cellulite, but it is not considered to be a solution for cellulite. If you’re concerned about cellulite, our practice offers Cellutone, which uses targeted vibration to reduce cellulite and improve the texture of the skin. Cellutone can be used to treat the thighs, flanks, abdomen, buttocks, and upper arms.
Is Smart Lipo a Safe Treatment?
Yes. This approach to liposuction has been approved by the FDA and has been safely used ever since.
Will My Health Insurance Cover This?
Because this is a cosmetic treatment, health insurance does not usually cover it. However, our practice offers financing plans through CareCredit.
