• Use of local anesthesia as opposed to general anesthesia which carries a greater risk.
• Small size of incisions (having a diameter no greater than 1mm).
• Reduced surgical trauma (bleeding, swelling, and bruising).
• Reduced recovery
Certainly choosing a board certified plastic surgeon proficient in liposuction is recommended to achieve the optimal results.
Multiple Areas May be Treated in One Sitting
SmartLipo and SmartLipo MPX can be used to treat a variety of body areas – the chin, neck, upper arms, thighs, buttocks, back, knees, love handles, male breasts, mons pubis, and abdomen. It is possible to treat multiple areas in a single sitting, depending on the size of the areas to be treated. Smartlipo is especially useful for areas of localized fat which are more fibrous or where the overlying skin is more lax.
Controlled Heating, Faster Recovery
The SmartLipo MPX has several admirable features. Smartlipo by Cynosure was the FDA approved laser system for laser lipolysis in 2006. The cutting edge Multiplex (MPX) technology utilizes dual wavelengths (1064 nm and 1320 nm) in a blended fashion to harness the maximum benefits of both wavelengths more effectively and safely than with either one alone. The 1320 nm wavelength is vigorously absorbed by water and fat, which results in high efficiency liposuction. The 1064 nm wavelength provides a wider scattering of energy and is highly absorbed by hemoglobin (in blood). This dual wavelength MPX technology allows for better fat liquefaction and skin tightening, and allows more even and uniform delivery of laser energy to maximize effectiveness and safety of the treatment. MPX technology also decreases treatment time for patients and allows larger areas to be treated for effectively. SmartSense™ and ThermaGuide technology of the Smartipo Laser Body Sculpting workstation enhances safety and uniformity of the laser energy deliver to provide added safety and superior aesthetic outcomes. This thermal sensing technology prevents overheating and burns and ensures controlled and accurate body shaping.
The SmartLipo MPX™ for laser lipolysis is a welcome solution for the many people looking for a low risk procedure to get rid of bothersome body fat. Consult with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to learn if Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting is right for you.
