What is SmartLipo?
Many men and women feel frustrated when trying to shed excess fat. “Love handles,” “saddle bags,” “bat wings,” and jowls can all be difficult to target through diet and exercise. Even when you successfully lose weight, other concerns may arise, such as loose skin that has not bounced back due to a loss in collagen and elasticity. Our surgeons at Clevens Face and Body Specialists perform a highly effective procedure known as SmartLipo that addresses trouble spots, with Dr. Ross Clevens using the technique to refine the face and neck and our breast and body specialists contouring the body.
SmartLipo MPX by Cynosure goes by many names, including SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting, SmartLipo TriPlex, laser-assisted lipolysis, and laser assisted body contouring. The procedure is the first laser assisted lipolysis system to be approved by the FDA for the safe breakdown of fats. SmartLipo is minimally invasive and offers many benefits over traditional liposuction, including better results, reduced downtime, and less discomfort. Additionally, unlike with other liposuction techniques, SmartLipo’s laser energy works to tighten the skin by coagulating underlying tissues. Firming the skin prevents dimpling and sagging that can occur when fat is removed.
