SmartLipo in Austin: Are You a Good Candidate?
Are you frustrated with stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of, even with diet and exercise? This can be immensely frustrating and is only getting harder as we get older and our metabolism slows down. We also know, all too well, that nobody can spot-reduce with exercise. So how does one tackle those pesky little fat deposits that seem like they’re here to stay forever? One great modality is SmartLipo laser liposuction. SmartLipo in Austin is practiced at the office of Dr. Daniel J. Leeman.
What Is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a type of laser liposuction that combines liposuction with a laser-just as the name implies. The laser heats up until the fat melts, which makes it ready to be easily removed via a cannula. It zaps fat cells, cauterizes blood vessels for less bruising and bleeding, and heats and tightens the undersurface of the epidermis.
How is SmartLipo in Austin Different from Traditional Liposuction?
With traditional liposuction, the practitioner has to suction the fat from beneath the skin with the use of a cannula. The heat of the SmartLipo laser makes this process much less aggressive, smoother and easier, resulting in a shorter recovery time. Basically, the practitioner has to work “less hard” to suction out the fat. This, along with the cauterizing of some blood vessels, has the benefit of the treatment causing less bruising and bleeding. The laser also tightens the skin, which is not the case with “regular” liposuction, which can leave behind unsightly sagging, loose and dimpled skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for SmartLipo in Austin?
If you’re generally in good health, have some muscle tone and are either no more than 25 pounds over your ideal body weight or less than 20 percent overweight, you may be a good candidate for this treatment.
With reasonable expectations, even those struggling with significantly larger excess weight may also benefit from SmartLipo in Austin. It is not a weight-loss treatment, but it can improve the appearance of certain aspects of the body. You might even drop a pant or dress size from losing a few inches!
What Are the Benefits?
