Neck and Chin
Take the next step to a fresher more youthful appearance without the look of being “done”. Traditional surgical procedures for the fat and lose skin under the chin are invasive, require significant down time and can change one’s appearance over time. SmartLipo allows gentle laser breakdown of the fat which is then removed through a hidden tiny incision. The addition of the laser stimulates collagen formation during the healing process which tightens the skin resulting in a youthful neck line and chin profile. Recovery and downtime are minimal and will fit most everyone’s schedule.
Abdomen and Waist Line
Now there is an alternative to the traditional tummy tuck and the long recovery associated with a major surgery. SmartLipo uses the laser to breakdown unwanted fat which is then removed through tiny incisions. The addition of the laser also tightens the overlying skin eliminating the need for the unsightly scars associated with removing excess skin. By stimulating the collagen in these areas the skin contracts back to a smooth and natural appearance giving you a result that is aesthetically pleasing. Although large areas of fat can be removed it is best utilized for those areas of fat that just won’t go away despite diet and exercise. Any area of fat is a potential candidate for removal but common areas include the waist line “muffin tops”, lower abdominal fat, flanks and fat pads around the upper back and bra area.
Arms and Legs
Several areas of the extremities tend to harbor areas of fat deposition despite proper weight management and exercise. Back of the upper arms and inner and outer thighs tend to be the areas where these deposits of fat just won’t go away despite all efforts. SmartLipo is a great solution and can be accomplished through tiny hidden incisions versus long incisions leaving unwanted scars.
Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle and schedule. For additional information call Advanced Laser and Facial Rejuvenation in Oklahoma City and schedule your complementary consultation with Dr. Webb today.
How it Works
Smartlipo laser body contouring is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and neck that permanently eliminates fat. So if your problem areas won’t respond to exercise and diet, Smartlipo provides dramatic improvements with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction.
- Smartlipo uses local anesthesia to numb only the specific area of the body being treated so you’re awake during the procedure
- The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and the fat cells are permanently destroyed
- The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin
Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat; coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity by 57%
What to Expect
Since Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia, procedure that typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas. Because of the anesthesia you will not feel pain, rather a sensation comparable to tugging or pressure.
After the procedure you may experience some light bruising and swelling and will be required to wear a compression garment for about a week to help with the healing process and support the areas treated, however you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.
