Patients who are considering liposuction but are uneasy about the cost, risks, and recovery, are welcome to speak to Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute regarding an alternative known as SmartLipo.
SmartLipo is used to treat areas of unwanted fat deposits in a different manner. Instead of using a cannula that suctions fat out of the body, SmartLipo uses laser lipolysis to heat and destroy fat cells, allowing them to naturally flush through the body over time and provide beautiful contours. This method of liposuction has a variety of benefits, including reduced healing and recovery time, no use of general anesthetics, and improved body contours. This is best for patients who do not want to have dramatic changes done to their body, which may make them appear to others as they have had “work done.”
Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute recommends patients take time to consult with her and determine if SmartLipo is right for them. The best candidates are those who are within their ideal weight range and are seeking body contouring, not weight loss. This is important for patients to understand that procedures such as this are not the answer to obesity but instead a solution to stubborn areas of fat. During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. Christine Lee will likely ask about medical history and family concerns to help in making sure SmartLipo or other fat reduction techniques are appropriates and will not affect any other medical conditions patients may have. A consultation appointment is the best way of finding out if SmartLipo is appropriate and can provide the results patients want to achieve. Patients are encouraged to be optimistic though realistic about the body contouring benefits of SmartLipo versus traditional lipolysis.
