If you’re interested in seeing a dramatic improvement in your facial profile without the hassle of invasive surgery under general anesthesia, then SmartLipo may be just what you’re looking for. SmartLipo is an excellent alternative way to melt and remove excess fat and create a more sculpted, slimmer appearance. For men and women who have pockets of isolated fat under the chin, SmartLipo can address this and create a less fat with younger look. SmartLipo has proven to be successful and many patients elect to have a SmartLipo procedure over traditional liposuction because of its many benefits.
Dr. Melanie Carreon with LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, Texas, routinely performs SmartLipo procedures on patients and have been pleased to see just how much SmartLipo can help them achieve a sleeker look.
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is an FDA approved minimally invasive treatment that uses a tiny incision, but can still produce big results. This procedure is performed with local anesthesia and allows patients to be awake, with minimal discomfort during the procedure. A small incision is placed under the skin and then a laser is used to melt away fat at the treatment site. Once the fat has been melted away the Physician then uses a specialized tiny cannula to remove the fat cells from the area. The power of the laser also stimulates the skin and promotes new collagen growth for firmer skin. The laser can also help stimulate new collagen which helps tighten the existing tissue, which is something that traditional liposuction cannot achieve. SmartLipo also differs from a traditional liposuction procedure in that the incision is much smaller and laser heat is used to melt away the fat. SmartLipo also has a quicker recovery time since local anesthesia is used, and as an additional benefit, scarring is minimal since the incision is so small.
How can it improve my face?
A delicate area such as the face requires a gentle approach, and since SmartLipo is minimally invasive, it’s an excellent procedure to consider. SmartLipo has been successful at improving and repairing multiple problem areas of the face that are responsible for making us look and feel much older, heavier, and more tired than we may really be. Sagging fat jowls, double chins, and isolated pockets of fat on the neck can all be treated with this procedure. Some patients have a “second chin” that has been causing them undue stress and creating insecurities for years.
Others suffer from sagging fat jowls, which consists of a small accumulation of fat on the lower cheek area. SmartLipo can treat all of these issues, and more. Previously, only a major surgical procedure could treat these problem areas and now SmartLipo can provide the same great results, with minimal discomfort and downtime. Since the scar is so tiny, nobody may ever know you had a procedure done, unless you decide to tell them.
Is this something for me?
If you want to give your face a tighter, more youthful appearance, and have a more defined jawline then SmartLipo is an excellent option to consider. Since SmartLipo uses a laser the blood vessels coagulate quickly which helps reduces the amount of bleeding and swelling. The potential of bruising is also lower by using this method. Local anesthesia is used, which also aids in a faster recovery time. The entire procedure can be completed in under an hour depending on how much fat needs to be melted and removed, and you’ll be able to resume normal activities in just a few days. Best of all, you’ll be able to enjoy the results for many years to come.
