As more women and men want to look and fell better about themselves body contouring and lipo-sculpture continue to grow in popularity. Liposuction has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today. But many are afraid of liposuction surgery, general anesthesia, and the downtime associated with this procedure. SmartLipo LaserBodySculpting is the first state of the art technology and only Laser Lipolysis (fat cell disruption) system to offer a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat. It offers less downtime and side-effects than traditional liposuction.
LaserBodySculpting is designed for patients who have problem spot areas of fat that no amount of exercise or dieting can reduce. It is for body sculpting; not for large volumes of fat. It is a unique laser procedure that is performed under local anesthesia in Dr. Walter Tom’s office. No intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is required. A small 1 mm in diameter laser fiber is introduced under the skin by a 2 mm blunt needle like cannula. Dr. Tom will gently move the laser fiber back in forth just under the skin. The laser energy will disrupt the fat cells, allowing the then liquefied fat to be drained away. This effect is called Laser Lipolysis. Because of the laser energy small blood vessels will be sealed off resulting in less bruising and swelling as seen with traditional liposuction. The big advantage of the Smart-Lipo LaserBodySculpting is the skin dermis (deeper skin layer) tightening that occurs due to collagen shrinkage and remodeling by the laser energy.
