There have been many recent technological advancements and improvements when it comes to cosmetic surgery. Liposuction, the procedure of removing fat cells from your body, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the entire world.

What Is Smartlipo?
The liposuction procedure has evolved to a more modern form called smart lipo, which uses the Smartlipo Triplex Workstation. It is a state-of-the-art laser lipolysis device that can safely and effectively deliver the treatment that patients want.
If you’re considering having this procedure done, here are a few things you should know.
Unlike with traditional liposuction, there is no need for anesthetics while the smart lipo procedure is being done. This procedure is done while you are awake and is virtually painless, with little to no discomfort at all.
Before this procedure, we will conduct a pre-operative evaluation where we’ll check whether or not you are in a healthy state for the procedure.
Uses Laser Heat
Smart lipo uses laser heat to soften and liquefy the fat, which makes it easier to eliminate the fat from your body via the cannula. This is different from traditional liposuction, which uses physical manipulation to eliminate the fat from your body.
Using laser heat also has the added benefit of tightening the skin, which traditional liposuction does not do. Without this feature, dimpling or sagging of the skin may occur after the procedure.
With traditional liposuction, bruising and healing might last anywhere from six to eight weeks. You may be prescribed medication to help with the pain and reduce the risk of infection. Resuming normal activities, including exercise, will typically take a few weeks. With smart lipo, you will only have to wear compression garments for a day or two, and swelling and bruising will only last for a week.
