Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis

A beautiful sculpted body is what every woman and man need, independently of its age. However, even if the healthy diet and the exercise are integral part of our busy daily routine, the localized fat and the stubborn cellulite warp our image and make us feel uncomfortable with our shape. Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis fights permanently the localized fat, tightens the skin and relieves us permanently of the orange peel skin.

What is Smartlipo Laser Lypolysis?

The innovation of the slightly invasive treatment “Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis” is based on the most advanced technology of ND-YAG laser that act effectively on the fat cells, causes dissolution and simultaneously promotes tissue tightening. More thoroughly, after the application of a local anesthetic, a small probe enters the subcutaneous tissue of the defective area, melts the adipocyte cells and turns into a thin liquid, while surrounding tissues and skin remain unaffected.

After that, the suction of the liquidized fat with a thin non – traumatic spigot, achieving fat removal and losing centimeters. The action of laser does not stop here, since the light and the thermal energy degrades abnormal fat deposits, responsible for orange peel skin texture, as simultaneously promotes skin tightening through new collagen production.

The Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis has significant advantages versus the traditional lipolysis:

  • The safety of this method is the main advantage, as the patient is not submitted into drunkenness or general anesthesia.
  • The stage of Smartlipo laser lipolysis promotes skin tightening, maintaining the skin smooth and even after the procedure.
  • The Smartlipo Laser lipolysis is less traumatic and bloodless method than the traditional one, so as a result, the postoperative pain and the tissue injury to be the minimum one.
  • The recovery time is the minimum one. The patient after the operation can drive, can return home and the next day to return again to work. Intensive exercise can take place only in 4-5 days after the surgery.
  • The tools that are used are thinner in relation with the traditional lipolysis so we do not have permanent scars and marks. After a few days the area does not appear to have undergone liposuction.
  • The special corset that is recommended after traditional liposuction, in the case of Smartlipo Laser Liposuction, is used for fewer days, as the risk of skin loosening is practically non-existent.

It is therefore a painless, bloodless, safe, effective and with zero recovery time method for permanent loss of local fat.

How is it applied

  • Topical Anesthesia stage

    At this spot we create 2 tiny holes under 2 mm diameter. Into these holes, solution of topical anesthesia is applied via a thin spigot (tumescent anesthesia – xylocaine (lidocaine) with Adrenaline). During this stage, the adipose hypodermic tissue has fully anaesthetized and the patient does not feel pain.

  • Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis

    After the completion of topical anesthesia, a very thin optical fiber ND-Yag Smartlipo Laser is inserted through the tiny holes under the skin. This laser scans all the area under skin, as leading to the melting and the liquidation of the hypodermic fat, as also to the new collagen production in the area while activating the fibroblast, which are cells that produce collagen and elastin and give the tightening result.

  • Liposuction

    When the procedure of laser lipolysis has been completed, the suction stage of liquidized fat with a thin little spigot not bigger than 1,5 mm. With this stage the Laser Lipolysis – Liposuction is completed as is leading to the permanent fat removal.

Before – After Results

The impressive results are permanent and immediately visible within the next weeks, as they are improved gradually with the production of new collagen and with the normal reduction of the remained liquified fat via lymph circulation. It is recommended the use of a special corset for putting pressure on the areas after some days.

The exercise and the balanced diet rich in fruits that moisturize the skin, strengthen the collagen and prevent fat storage, while helping to maintain the results of the treatment.

What comes before the Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis treatment?

Before the laser lipolysis procedure, the patient undergoes a preoperative check-up, which includes the local measurement of fat using 2-dimensional ultrasound.

This measurement allows us to know with millimetre accuracy the subcutaneous fat of the area of interest.

I want to lose weight, is Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis the ideal method for me?

Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis – Liposuction is ideal for improving the silhouette, losing points and eliminating local fat. It is not a method of weight loss. However, it has been observed that individuals who undergo Smartlipo laser liposuction regain their confidence upon seeing their new body, making it easier to follow a balanced diet plan and eventually approach their normal weight.

Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis or «traditional» Liposuction?

“Classic” Liposuction is an invasive method which is performed in a clinic or operating room and the recovery time is longer. With Smartlipo Laser Liposuction the procedure is simplified, as this minimally invasive method is performed safely in the clinic, bloodlessly, without total anaesthesia or intoxication and with zero post-operative pain.

Another comparative advantage of laser lipolysis is the simultaneous tightening and elimination of cellulite, which we cannot achieve with the invasive method. The treatment does not need to be repeated and lasts only 1-2 hours depending on the area of the applied area. As there are no stitches, the patient can immediately return to their daily habits.

The results are immediately visible and gradually improve over the following weeks with the production of new collagen and the normal elimination of any remaining liquefied fat through the lymphatic circulation.

How much recovery time is needed?

Recovery time is minimal. After Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis, the patient can immediately return to daily activities and work, and even drive. For the first few days after the procedure, for about 4-5 days, it is recommended to avoid gymnastics and intense physical activity.

Is Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis a painful process?

Smartlipo Laser Liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, which makes it practically painless and very well tolerated. During the procedure the patient can read a book or even use his/her mobile phone normally. There is a slight discomfort during the injection of local anaesthesia in the area of the operation.
