SmartLipo™ is FDA-approved. Enhanced safety features keep track of temperature generated by the laser and deliver an even amount of energy to the treated area. The use of local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia also greatly reduces any potential risks. In addition, The Langdon Center features a Surgical Suite that is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC). AAAHC accreditation ensures that the highest standards of quality and care are upheld.
Candidates for SmartLiop™
The best candidates for SmartLipo™ are people with normal skin tone who are in good health. They have previously tried to get rid of fatty bulges through exercise and proper diet. The best candidates also have realistic expectations about their own bodies and understand that SmartLipo™is not a replacement for weight loss.
This advanced laser-assisted liposuction procedure is minimally invasive, requires only local anesthesia, and results in less downtime than other methods. More effective than previous fat-eliminating methods, SmartLipo™ causes less trauma by effectively melting or liquefying fat as well as sealing small blood vessels prior to liposuction of excess fat through very small openings. This procedure minimizes bruising and minimizes the need for stitches. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure may take one or more hours. Most patients only require one treatment.
In addition to eliminating unwanted fat, SmartLipo™ may also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Now you can enjoy a slimmer and more toned figure that is easily maintainable with a healthy diet and exercise.
Most common areas treated:
- Neck (Under Chin)
- Male Breasts
Most patients return to light activities 2–3 days following their treatment in Guilford, CT. Patients recover at their own pace and will usually wear a compression garment for one week following the procedure. Slight soreness, discomfort and minimal bruising may occur following your procedure but are easily manageable. SmartLipo™ laser energy coagulates small blood vessels within the treated fat, resulting in reduced bruising.
