SmartLipo is a form of liposuction that usually requires less downtime than the traditional procedure. During the procedure, small incisions are made and a laser fiber is inserted. The laser fiber works as a heat source to liquefy fat, making it easier to suction out or drain. Additionally, the laser stimulates collagen production, which helps tighten the skin around the treatment area(s). The procedure is relatively quick, lasting between 1.5 to 2 hours and is an outpatient procedure – no hospital stay required! Though there are a few days of downtime, most patients are able to return to work after two days. SmartLipo is a great choice for the neck, jawline, arms, back, hips, knees, enlarged male breasts, and sagging skin post-pregnancy. During the month of May, we’re running a great SmartLipo special at Ethridge Plastic Surgery! Call us today to schedule a consultation.
