Smartlipo is a procedure performed at True MD Med Spa in Lakeland by our skin-rejuvenation specialists. Unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure that delivers similar results provided by liposuction; however, with Smartlipo, there is little to no scarring and reduced recovery time. The Smartlipo procedure is perfect to tighten sagging skin, reduce cellulite, and removing unwanted fat in the face, neck, knees, inner and outer thighs, arms, belly, and hips. Smartlipo is intended for those who are relatively healthy and just need a bit of help to lose those last few pounds that won’t come off with diet and exercise.
Our skin-rejuvenation specialists will assess your candidacy by reviewing your medical history and discussing your goals and expectations in your complimentary consultation. Once you are identified as a valid candidate for Smartlipo, we will schedule the procedure, which generally takes about 45-60 minutes per area. During your visit, an extremely thin cannula or tube is placed just under the surface of the skin. The cannula contains highly calibrated laser fibers that are used to liquefy fat cells and extract the fatty liquid without damaging the surrounding nerves or tissue.
In addition to fat literally melting away, the Smartlipo laser coagulates the surrounding tissue, which results in tighter and smoother skin. Results are typically achieved after just one visit, seen in about a week, and will continue to improve in the following three to six months. Although there may be a bit of bruising or swelling initially, recovery time is short, and scars are barely visible due to the microscopic size of the incision. Most patients can return to their normal routine within a day or so, depending on the number of areas treated and the location of the treatment.
