Liposuction is the procedure wherein fats and cellulites are destroyed and suctioned, sculpting the patients bodies into the body that they have always dreamed of. With just a simple visit to the doctor and undergoing a painful procedure this was used an easy step for these patients to become beautiful but now a better option has revealed itself, smart lipo.
Smart lipo also known as Laser Lipo compared to the traditional liposuction definitely outweighs its advantages in both the procedure and recovery. Some things that the smart lipo has to offer that the traditional liposuction cannot is the promotion of skin tightening, the permanent elimination of fats, the improvement of cellulites, less bleeding and bruising becuse it is minimally invasive, plus the fact that there is no need for stitches or drains, which makes the procedure appealing to patients.
After traditional liposuction, it is known that patients undergo an estimate of one to two months of healing. They are usually in a great amount of pain and swelling which causes limited mobility, a definite disadvantage. This is where smart lipo proves itself the better choice because of the fact that healing is relatively fast and almost painless, some patient are known to return to work within one to two days.
Like all other surgical procedures recovery starts in the recovery room, where the patient is closely monitored while the anesthesia begins to wear off. In smart lipo, local anesthesia is used not general anesthesia, which means that there will be no feeling of nausea, vomiting or disorientation, making the first few minutes of recovery convenient, allowing the patient to be sent home within one hour. There are several stages of healing in Smart lipo recovery. After Smart lipo procedure minor bruising and numbness may occur, but should disappear within days, if not hours, of leaving the recovery room, this is why before discharge the doctor will give specific instructions to the patient regarding home care after the Smart lipo procedure, the doctor may also prescribe pain medications to be taken as needed. Patients may also be given compression bandages, these will help prevent blood clots and help in preventing shifting of bodily tissues, which is key to Smart lipo recovery.
During recovery, patients may be highly susceptible to infections which may lead to unattractive scars, other unwanted adverse effects, possibly lead to illness and even death. But with Smart lipo, these risks are dramatically reduced. Appointments will be scheduled for continuous monitoring of recovery after Smart lipo. It is very important to be consistently present during these appointments so that doctors can closely observe the wounds and see if they are healing properly, to improve the chances of a smooth, healthy and scar-free result.
