What SmartLipo can do for you

Liposuction is one of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures around the world and with advanced technology, body transformation possibilities have come a long way. The procedure involves the permanent removal of fat cells from problem areas of the body in order to sculpt a more desirable shape. Often, diet and exercise alone just can’t get rid of stubborn fat deposits in areas like the belly and thighs. The flank area, also known as, “love handles” are another popular treatment area for both men and women. Unlike Abdominoplasty or, Tummy Tuck and other body lift procedures, Liposuction requires only very small incisions which are virtually invisible once healed. Recovery is generally quick and results are highly satisfying.

One of the best advancements to come along for Liposuction is the Smartlipo™ Triplex LaserBodySculpting™ Workstation, made by Cynosure, an industry leader is cosmetic and laser devices. This is a new, improved type of liposuction because it not only causes less pain and trauma to the tissues but uses heat from the laser to melt fat and tighten the skin.

In the past, removing fat through liposuction required significant physical effort and severe bruising and swelling would result. As well, when our body’s tissues have been stretched out for some time or stretch marks are present, that skin and tissue won’t bounce back tightly on its own and the look of sagging, deflated skin can result from traditional liposuction.

SmartLipo reduces these concerns significantly making your surgeon’s job easier and leading to much more satisfying results. One reason laser liposuction is considered less painful is that the cannula used to removed liquified fat is smaller than usual.

Unique Technology

A feature that makes this technology unique is that the cannula- a long, thin, pliable, tube, contains 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser fiber, that pulses at two wavelengths. As the laser targets subcutaneous fat, one of the wavelengths ruptures the fat cells, to “melt” fat contained in the cell walls. The partner wavelength targets skin appearance by cauterizing blood vessels and stimulating collagen and elastin production. These elements are key building blocks for tight, elastic skin and help tissues to bounce back after underlying fat is removed. Sealing the small vessels will also help prevent unnecessary bruising and swelling after the treatment.

Due to the increase in precision allowed by the laser assisted technology, smoother-looking results with even fat distribution and skin texture are easier to achieve. The aim of improving technology is often related not just to better cosmetic results but to increased patient safety. SmartLipo is also associated with fewer complications compared to the traditional tumescent liposuction methods. One of the most common problems with the old-fashioned liposuction method is that there is lack of contraction of the soft tissue, leading to skin laxity. This will appear somewhat similar to the stretch scars and wrinkled skin seen following sudden weight loss or pregnancy. SmartLipo leads to better contraction of the soft tissue resulting in a toned, slimmed down look that people want.

Are you a candidate?

Laser liposuction is not intended to treat obesity but for sculpting and contouring the body shape. In order to get the most out of this procedure, ideal candidates for SmartLipo should be within 25 to 30 pounds of their ideal body weight. Maintaining the benefits from Liposuction means following post-operative instructions carefully, keeping fit, and monitoring calorie intake.

SmartLipo can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the individual circumstances. Local anaesthetic doesn’t carry the same risks as general and will not lead to a person feeling prolonged dizziness or nausea after their procedure, so many patients prefer it for these reasons. A strong numbing agent is administered to the target tissue and will last many hours. A microcannula is then inserted through inconspicuously located incisions and directed to treatment areas. The laser melts the fat and the liquid fat is aspirated (suctioned) out. The heat also stimulates the skin to contract by as much as 17% to improve the contour. At our clinic, we use the tumescent local anesthesia, a procedure that requires the surgeon to inject extremely diluted anesthetic agents into the fat tissues. This results in the distension of the fat cells so that they can easily be targeted by the laser.

However, the only way to really know if you’re a suitable candidate for surgery is by talking to Dr. Gartner during your private medical consultation.

Several peer-reviewed studies suggest that SmartLipo is associated with less pain, swelling or complications than the old-fashioned techniques. This is good news for working professionals who prefer to return to work as quickly as possible and get back to daily activities. Immediately after the procedure, minor swelling and bruising can occur but should subside within 2 weeks. The incisions will be covered with a small dressing and a post-operative compression garment will be worn for 3 weeks or more, to reduce swelling and improve results.

SmartLipo can be performed on multiple areas on the same day and it can take 30 to 45 minutes to complete each area. The procedure has a short recovery period and clients are able to perform sedentary work such as sitting at a desk, on the day following the surgery. It is advised to wait for a few weeks to perform activities like long distance walking, jogging, running and climbing stairs.

Results from your SmartLipo will be lifelong because unlike with dieting, once we remove fat cells they are gone forever. After Smartlipo, you may see significant improvements within two weeks to one month, and will see final results around 3 months.
