SmartLipo is a liposuction procedure that uses a low energy laser beam to eliminate excess fat and tighten loose skin. A small cannula with a temperature setting is inserted into the targeted areas to heat the fat cells and stimulate collagen production. The result is fat disruption, which causes fat deposits to be flushed away and instantaneous skin tightening.
SmartLipo is the most trusted and widely accepted laser liposuction with a 94% approval rating. Its cutting edge system allows Dr. Ashruf of the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Laser Center of Maryland to perform targeted and highly-focused treatments. Dr. Ashruf uses three different light wavelengths to customize the SmartLipo procedure to a patient’s individual needs. The procedure is minimally-invasive because it requires small incisions that leave minimal to no scars. It also provides accurate and high-definition results with faster recovery time; you may notice immediate results.
Is SmartLipo for Everyone?
The procedure is suitable for men and women close to their ideal weight, no more than 20 percent overweight. It is perfect for creating definition in problem areas like flabby arms, love handles, a full neck and chin, chubby thighs, calves, and knees. It is important to note that SmartLipo is not a weight loss procedure, and the best candidates should be leading a healthy lifestyle and be in good physical condition. Age is not an issue; however, people with fair skin elasticity see the best results. Dr. Ashruf and other surgeons recommend you quit smoking before the procedure and steer away from nicotine afterward.
How Long Do SmartLipo Results Last?
The results show up as soon as the swelling goes down, and there is continuous improvement for the next six months. SmartLipo keeps fat away as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight.
The Recovery Process
Modern anesthesia helps patients avoid many of the side effects of general anesthesia, assuring them of less downtime. Patients can eat and drink as usual on the surgery day and drive to and from their appointment. The Cosmetic Plastic surgery and Laser Center of Maryland offers a fully staffed recovery unit where the professional and friendly nurses monitor patients closely until they are ready to go home. They also have exclusive beauty suites adjacent to the center where patients may stay after surgery. If you opt to go home immediately after surgery, you can follow these recovery tips to get back to everyday life faster.
• Prep your home for rest and recovery by gathering medical supplies and entertainment before going in for surgery.
• Clear your schedule for a day or two to rest and relax while your body recovers.
• Wear compression garments to help minimize bruising and swelling and aid in skin tightening.
• Confirm with your surgeon whether your regular medications pose a risk during the recovery process
• Follow the doctor’s recovery instructions to ensure the procedure is successful and recovery time is minimal.
• Do not miss your follow-up appointments to ensure the recovery process is smooth.
What’s the difference between Smart Lipo and Liposuction?
Smart Lipo involves the use of a laser to tighten the skin in addition to fat removal whereas traditional liposuction is used to remove fat only.
Skin tightening is a common concern for many people and often times treating the abdomen, back, thighs, and knees, patients see a huge improvement with Smart Lipo due to the skin tightening capabilities.
Why Smart Lipo Triplex?
Smartlipo Triplex features three separate wavelengths – 1440, 1064, and 1320 nm. This combination of the three most powerful wavelengths is used by Dr. Ashruf to melt the fat cells and tighten the skin
