Get Smart About Those Fat Pockets
- Posted on: Apr 30 2016
Your body is good at storing this stuff called fat. It’s from our caveman days where we didn’t exactly have a Kroger right down the street and we might have to call upon that fat later in the lean times.
Our bodies don’t know about this change yet, though. They still effectively store extra calories as fat. Even if you’re near or at your ideal body weight, you have areas of fat that you just can’t do anything about. You diet, you exercise, but the fat just keeps keepin’ on.
That’s when it’s time to get smart with that unwanted fat, SmartLipo from Creative Image Laser Solutions.
What is SmartLipo?
No, SmartLipo didn’t study harder in school than regular liposuction. SmartLipo adds laser to the party to improve traditional liposuction mightily.
Traditional liposuction as it was first performed in this country was a pretty violent affair. The patient had to be under general anesthesia because the doctor had to move the cannula around quite aggressively under the skin to break lose the fat for suctioning out. The cannulas used also had to be fairly large to adequately suction out the fat.
The result was some serious tissue trauma, and you know what comes with tissue trauma, bruising. Bruising from traditional liposuction could be extensive and last for a couple months.
That’s why we bring a laser to liposuction with SmartLipo. First we inject a saline solution with local anesthetic into the target area. Next we insert a small laser fiber. The laser emits energy at two wavelengths that cause the fat cells to rupture and liquefy. The dual wavelength energy also triggers a skin tightening reaction in the skin to reduce laxity. Once the laser has done its work, we insert a small cannula into the same 3mm incision and suction out the liquefied fat.
SmartLipo removes the fat without anywhere near as much tissue trauma and tightens the skin. It is ideal for removal of fat from the abdomen, love handles, saddle bags, and thighs. It is also good for areas with skin laxity such as the neck and arms.
