Summer’s almost here – and that means your calendar is probably filling up with sun-soaked activities. Whether you’re spending summer on an island vacation or adventuring to the mountains for hiking trips, you can’t wait to make the most of the gorgeous weather.
But what if you don’t feel ready for all that Summer fun, simply because you don’t feel like you’re in Summer shape?
Not to worry! At The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT, Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon has plenty of options to help you slim down in time for the warmer months — including laser lipo! Check out all the different laser lipo options now available at The Langdon Center:
ProLipo: This laser-assisted technology is a great option for patients who want to avoid swelling and bruising associated with traditional liposuction surgery. Before your liposuction procedure, Dr. Langdon will make a small incision and feed a fiber optic cannula through to the desired treatment area. The cannula delivers a steady stream of laser energy, which helps heat up and liquefy fat cells. This method makes it much easier for Dr. Langdon to remove the treated fat without having to manually break up the fat, which minimizes swelling and bruising.
SlimLipo: This laser-assisted technology works similar to ProLipo, in that it uses laser energy (of a different wavelength) to melt the fat cells before removal. Small incisions are made along the treatment area, which allows the laser energy to permeate through and liquefy fat cells. SlimLipo is an excellent option for patients who may be worried about loose skin after liposuction, as the laser heat helps stimulate a tightening effect. SlimLipo is best performed on the upper arms, lower abdomen, and other areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise.
SmartLipo: Another laser-assisted lipo treatment is SmartLipo, which also uses laser heat energy to destroy and remove fat cells from areas that could benefit from more contouring. SmartLipo uses enhanced safety features to keep track of the heat energy that’s being delivered to the treatment area; this ensures that results are even and aesthetically pleasing. Recovery is simple; most patients only need to wear compression garments for a few days, at which point they can return back to light activities.
