Texas Center for Breast & Body Offers Smart Lipo Triplex in Houston, Texas
Smart Lipo in Houston, TX, was one of the first types of laser approved by the FDA for reducing stubborn body fat. This specially designed laser device is used to liquefy fat and help firm the skin. The procedure is considered surgical in nature, but it is minimally invasive and therefore, patients have little downtime following the procedure.
How Does Smart Lipo Remove Fat and Firm Skin?
Laser liposuction makes use of lasers to liquefy localized deposits of fat. A small incision is made in the skin and a small cannula containing the laser fiber is inserted through the incision. The laser uses high energy to liquefy the fat cells, which are then suctioned from the body. The laser also stimulates the skin, promoting new collagen growth. This may help reduce the appearance of dimples in the surface of the skin, making the treated area appear firmer and more youthful.
Is This an Invasive Procedure?
Smart Lipo in Houston, TX, is categorized as a minimally invasive procedure since it can be done using only a local anesthetic and small instruments. There is less bleeding, bruising, and swelling than with traditional liposuction because the laser energy coagulates blood vessels when it comes in contact with them.
Who Is a Candidate for Using Smart Lipo?
Smart Lipo in Houston, TX is an FDA approved procedure for both men and women who have localized deposits of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
What Regions of the Body Can Be Treated Using Smart Lipo in Houston, TX?
Smart Lipo can be used on the chin, back, ankles, knees, buttocks, love handles, male breasts, thighs, jowls, and upper arms.
What to Expect During Pre-Treatment Consultation
Prior to scheduling the treatment, patients will have a consultation with Dr. Schusterman. He will ask the patient about their specific goals and work with them to establish realistic expectations. He will also ask questions about the patient’s lifestyle and recommend changes that may help achieve optimum results.
How Long Will the Treatment Take?
Most patients only need a single treatment to achieve desired results. Each area treated typically takes 45 minutes to one hour.
What Type of Care Is Needed Following Treatment?
We recommend that patients wear compression garments for a brief period of time following Smart Lipo in Houston, TX. The compression minimizes swelling and helps the skin adjust to its new shape. Some swelling and minimal bruising is to be expected, but it should go away quickly. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, there are no sutures to be removed later.
Following the surgical procedure, we recommend patients avoid strenuous exercise and hot baths for a few days, then gradually return to normal activities. Most patients can return to work about 48 hours after the procedure.
