Our minimally invasive Smartlipo laser treatments melt away fat in any area of your body including the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, and knees. The procedure also tightens your skin and reduces stretch marks. Dr. El Asmar recommends Smartlipo for healthy individuals of normal weight who are tired of working hard, eating right, and still not seeing results.
Dr. El Asmar applies local anesthetic to numb the treatment area before a tiny incision is made to fit a very small tube underneath the skin. The "cannula" (a small tube) delivers energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to liquify before being removed from the area. Simultaneously, the laser stimulates collagen and elastin production to tighten the surrounding skin tissues, giving patients firmer and smoother results than seen with surgical liposuction.
Smartlipo is less invasive and more effective than traditional liposuction. Surgical liposuction removes large pockets of fat, but also leaves behind sizeable areas of sagging skin that require more surgery to get the best results. With Smartlipo, lasers tighten the skin, resulting in a smoother and more even look. Since it’s also less invasive, most patients see shorter recovery periods with no scarring. Most people return to work within a few days and exercise in about 2 weeks.
Unlike surgical liposuction, Smartlipo procedures only require local anesthesia and minimal downtime. Although slight trauma can occasionally occur, patients usually get back to their normal routines very quickly. Results are evident, and most patients start seeing results in the week following treatment, with peak results achieved in the next 3-6 months.
