Laser-Assisted Lipolysis in Cleveland, Ohio

We all want to look our best. Studies show that well-presented people make more money and tend to lead happier lives. Aesthetic technology has changed dramatically over the last few years. The Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute is leading the way when it comes to laser lipo in Ohio and the United States.

The Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute is one of the first clinics to utilize Smart Lipo. Smart Lipo is less invasive while efficiently removing fat and cellulite from areas all over the body. Smart Lipo is also known as laser-assisted lipolysis.

LaserAssisted Lipolysis

Many people are forgoing traditional liposuction, in favor of laser-assisted lipolysis. This minimally invasive procedure utilizes a fiber optic laser and heat to melt the fat. Smaller parts of the body (inner thighs, hips, upper arms, chins, and the neck are ideal for laser-assisted lipolysis. This procedure also kickstarts the production of collagen proteins that keeps skin firm.

Researchers compared data from both laser-assisted lipolysis and liposuction from more than 2000 patients during a time period of three years. While both groups lost weight and a significant body fat percentage, but the test subjects in the laser-assisted lipolysis group experienced firmer skin in the area that was treated.

What to Expect During a SmartLipo Procedure

The SmartLipo fat removal process utilizes advanced laser energy and only requires a small incision where the fiber is inserted and begins to destroy fat cells. In addition, the device accelerates the production of elastin and collagen which helps your skin stay taut while boosting the skin’s texture and look

The device removes the melted fat from the treated area and removes it from the body. Afterward, there are a few sutures necessary to close the incision. Most SmartLipo procedures are outpatient and performed with a local anesthetic.

Recovery from SmartLipo

Traditional liposuction is ideal for many reasons, particularly for larger portions of the body but it can take anywhere between two to four weeks before the patient is completely recovered. Laser-assisted lipolysis doesn’t take a fraction of the time that traditional liposuction does.

In fact, laser-assisted lipolysis requires a compress and a few days rest. This is necessary to allow your body to heal from the process and gives time for acclimating to its new state. Due to the very small incision scarring will be minimal, if not invisible.
