A Plastic Surgeon in Bergen County Explains What SmartLipo Is and How It Removes Unwanted Fat

Diet and exercise can do wonders to trim the body, but accumulations of fat can persist in “trouble spots” like the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and neck. If you have such problem areas, your plastic surgeon in Bergen County wants you to know about SmartLipo laser body contouring, a minimally-invasive, laser-assisted procedure that allows you to reshape your body the way you want.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is different from older forms of liposuction because it uses laser lipolysis to melt fat into liquid form, so it is much easier to remove it from the body. An additional benefit of using the laser is that it tightens your skin by causing collagen formation.

General anesthesia is not necessary, only local anesthesia, which is much safer, and is used to numb only the area through which the small laser tube is inserted. Once in place, the laser heats the targeted areas of fat and liquefies them, after which they are gently suctioned out. Recovery is faster and easier than with traditional liposuction, so there is less pain and bruising. Also, because SmartLipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin. Plus, in most cases you can return to your normal routine sooner.

What areas can be treated using SmartLipo?

Many patients at our Bergen County plastic surgery center have opted for SmartLipo treatment to remove accumulations of fat from their abdomens and buttocks. But SmartLipo can just as effectively be used to eliminate problem accumulations of fat from the legs, arms, face, and neck. Related SmartLipo procedures such as PrecisionTx can be used to treat problems of excessive sweating, and a specialized SmartLipo procedure called Cellulaze can be used to eliminate cellulite.
