What is SmartLipo?
There are common areas of the body that many men and women feel frustrated by when it comes to shedding excess fat. “Love handles,” “saddle bags,” “bat wings,” and jowls, among other areas of the body, can be difficult to target through diet and exercise. Even when the traditional route does result in some success, other concerns may arise, such as loose skin that has not bounced back due to a loss in collagen and elasticity. Both 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 Dr. Amy Simon (formerly Dr. Ortega) 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.
