Smartlipo is actually the advanced form of liposuction, but it uses laser technology that makes it easy to remove fat. Smartlipo is the minimal invasive technique for the procedure of liposuction, which is specially designed to break down the fat tissues and provides smoother and firmer skin. During the procedure of smartlipo, extremely small cannula - a thin hollow tube - is used as in other techniques of liposuction. Thin tube is inserted in the skin that reaches the fatty area but in spite of breaking fat manually, laser technology is used to liquefy or melt the fat layers. This is done by delivering a laser beam to the fat layer. Smartlipo uses three different laser beams varying in the wavelengths. These are given below.• The first one is of 1064 nm; this is absorbed by the blood vessels and causes clotting of blood vessels that lead to less bruising and bleeding.• The second one is of 1320 nm, which is absorbed by the water molecules in the fat cells and it works by heating the fat tissues. It also stimulates the production of collagen that tightens the skin.• The third one is of 1440 nm, which is absorbed by the fat tissues. It works by causing photo thermal effect that breaks down the fat cells thermally and mechanically.After the fat cells are liquefied or melted, they are drained away through drainage systems of the body. Laser beam is also delivered to the skin layers and it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
These both substances are naturally found in the skin and play an important role in keeping the skin elastic and smooth. This is why their stimulation helps in the tightening of the skin. The procedure is minimal invasive and does not cause any severe discomfort or pain. The procedure of smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia only.Smartlipo can be performed on various areas of the body having excess of fat including both small as well as large areas. The most common areas that are treated by this procedure are abdomen, upper arms, breasts, back, hips, thighs, knees and even the face and neck. The procedure can do both the gentle or more radical contouring of the body parts.The procedure of smartlipo is extremely beneficial and gives highly successful results for the removal of excess fat; some of its benefits are given below.• It is minimal invasive and it does not cause severe pain or discomfort as in traditional liposuction.
• It encourages tissue retraction through coagulation of soft tissues.
• It causes fewer traumas and healing is faster as compared to traditional liposuction.
• It gives consistent outcomes to the patient.
• It gives quick results as compared to traditional liposuction.
