The Many Advantages of Laser Liposuction

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Since coming into wide use in the 1980s, liposuction has served the needs of men and women seeking a younger and trimmer appearance. Unfortunately, traditional liposuction has many shortcomings. Laser surgery offers many of the benefits of conventional liposuction without the associated problems. Smartlipo, which represents the latest advancement in the field, is available from New England Laser Lipo in Worcester, Ma.

Conventional liposuction would normally have been performed in a hospital in a manner similar to other forms of surgery, with the patient being placed under general anesthesia and requiring a lengthy period of recovery. In addition to the problems associated with the procedure itself, the surgery often failed to achieve the desired results. The laser method is simpler and more effective in both shaping the body and in tightening the overlying skin.

Smartlipo employs a small tube, known as a cannula, through which the laser-emitting fiber will be inserted into the skin. Inside the body, the the laser will directly attack the fat cells that need to be eliminated. Targeted by the laser, the cells will literally melt away, leading to the disappearance of the unsightly bulging they can cause. The laser energy will also stimulate collagen, a natural protein found in the body, and it is this process that tightens the skin. Laser liposuction can be performed on an outpatient basis, only requiring the use of a local anesthetic.

Smartlipo permanently eliminates fat cells without the bleeding and bruising that often resulted from the conventional method. It also avoids the need for stitches and significantly reduces the recovery period, and patients who undergo the procedure usually experience little or no pain. Smartlipo is so versatile that it can be used in most areas of the body, including the neck, back, abdomen, arms, hips and knees.
Offering the promise of safe and efficient body sculpting, Smartlipo is available to patients at New England Laser Lipo in Worcester, Ma.
