Smartlipo is a relatively new procedure that removes excess body fat while firming your skin at the same type. Dr. Sodoma evaluates and provides Smartlipo for patients who are suffering from excessive weight gain and need a solution that won’t affect their everyday life.
Because SmartLipo is minimally invasive, local anesthesia is used to numb the area of treatment. A laser fiber is inserted through a small tube into the body, where the laser ruptures the fat cells that are targeted for removal. The fat is liquefied and sucked out of the body. As the body coagulates, the skin is tightened.
This procedure is safe and provides quick results. After consulting with Dr. Sodoma, an assessment is made, treatment date given, and procedure administered. This procedure can occur in one day.
In most cases, this procedure takes up to two hours, depending on how the number of treatment areas.
Thankfully, the after-effects are minimal. Light bruising and swelling are normal and temporary. Once the procedure is over, you will be required to wear a compression garment for seven days to help with healing. You can resume normal activities within a day or so.
SmartLipo is minimally invasive: You can achieve great results without having to go through extensive surgery. The likelihood of excessive bleeding and bruising is minimal, there's little to no scarring, and you can dictate how you want your body to look after the procedure is complete.
SmartLipo can be used for the arms, legs, neck, face, abdomen, and buttocks. Every area can be sculpted to your specifications.
Dr. Sodoma will determine whether or not this is a good fit for you depending on your medical history and other factors. Due to its minimally-invasive nature, most people are candidates for this solution.
