SmartLipo laser liposuction is a procedure that offers the benefits of traditional liposuction with a cannula that contains a laser fiber.
The laser emits low-level heat energy that breaks up and liquefies fat deposits, enabling Dr. Khoobehi to remove excess fat safely and quickly.
In addition to its ability to help shape body contours, SmartLipo can also be performed to tone and firm sagging skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dr. Khoobehi recommends combining Smartlipo with Morpheus 8 and/or Bodytite. When combining SmartLipo with skin tightening treatment it give a natural appearance.
How Smartlipo Is Performed
The cannula with the laser attachment is inserted through these tiny incisions and targets the fat tissue under the skin, melting it with its laser heat. Dr. Khoobehi can control the temperature of the laser and with great precision, focus on the fat while leaving other tissue and internal structures untouched. During this process, the fat cells that are hit by the laser will swell, pop and melt. The broken down fat tissues are removed by a small vacuum suction.
During/After The Procedure
Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure that is done under general anesthesia at Outpatient Surgical Center an accredited surgical facility. Local anesthesia may be performed at Dr. Khoobehi accredited surgical suite depending on the size of the area being treated. The treatment lasts less than an hour per area. The laser application promotes tissue coagulation so that there is less bleeding, swelling and bruising. The patient will also notice that the skin will tighten around the treatment area as the laser helps in collagen development. Optimal results can be seen within 4-6 months. After surgery, patients are required to wear a compression garment to help the body adjust to its new shape. Dr. Khoobehi recommends Endermologies (post surgery massage) to be completed at least 5 times after surgery which helps reduce swelling and induce circulation.
Smartlipo fees can cost as low as $4,000 depending on the size of the treatment area, how many areas are being addressed, and how many sessions it takes to reach the desired results. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in performing SmartLipo. He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.
Ideal Areas For Smartlipo?
Smartlipo can target areas where precision is needed such as the neck or the arms. This still includes the more common areas treated for liposuction such as hips, flanks and abdomen. There are also cases in which traditional liposuction can be a better approach than Smartlipo. This will be discussed with the patient by Dr. Khoobehi during the initial consultation.
Will I Have Scars?
The incisions made with Smartlipo are tiny – just enough for the cannula to be inserted.
Fat Gone Away?
Fat cells destroyed by Smartlipo are permanent. This does not mean that new fat cells cannot develop. Adhering to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise will ensure that the results attained are long-term.
How Much Weight Will I Lose?
It is important to understand that Smartlipo, or even the traditional liposuction method, is not a one-stop for weight loss. While fat removal of any kind will result in less weight on the body, in order to be considered for the procedure, the patient must already be close to or near his or her goal weight.
