Liposuction has always been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States, but many people are now opting for a minimally invasive option of this procedure. At L.A. Vein Center, a laser based liposuction option, SmartLipo, allows you to eliminate excess fat without going through major surgery. SmartLipo can be done in nearly any area in which you have extra fat. Here are the most popular areas for SmartLipo.
For the Larger Fat Deposits
While extremely large fat deposits may be better addressed with surgical liposuction, SmartLipo can still be extremely effective for areas with significant fatty deposits. This can include:
• The hips
• The abdomen
• The thighs
For the Smaller Fat Deposits
SmartLipo is especially effective in small areas that traditional liposuction couldn’t easily address, as the SmartLipo 1064-nm Nd: YAG laser can be used for very precise targeting of fatty deposits. This means that it’s well suited for fat removal in areas including:
• The under chin area (double chins)
• The underside of the upper arms (the “batwings”)
• The knees
• The neck
• The chest
Is SmartLipo Right For You?
If you’re looking for fat reduction that doesn’t involve major surgery and serious pain, SmartLipo might just be the best option for you. The ideal SmartLipo patient is someone who maintains a stable healthy weight, but still has resistant fat deposits despite diet and exercise efforts. Unlike surgical liposuction, you don’t need to take a lot of time off work for recovery. Most patients are able to get back to their regular routine in a matter of days, in fact.
