You do not need traditional liposuction to get rid of a muffin top or love handles. You also don’t need a week off of work. You can get rid of excess fat around your midsection and other areas of your body quickly and in less than one hour with “lunchtime liposuction.”
What exactly is “lunchtime liposuction?” Well, its technical name is Smartlipo™. This cosmetic procedure is minimally invasive – an excellent alternative to tradition liposuction.
More About Smartlipo
Smartlipo uses Light Amplication by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) technology. The LASER uses a light beam to liquefy fat deposits. Fat cells rupture and the fluid fat is suctioned out through a tiny cannula. Recovery can be as short as one day (for very small areas only), which is where this procedure has earned its “lunchtime liposuction” name.
Most patients do not suffer many side effects from the procedure. At most, they will experience swelling and mild bruising and/or redness. This fades quickly over several days.
Smartlipo has made it possible for people to get rid of excess fat in areas where diet and exercise aren’t able to, such as the stomach and thighs. The procedure also tightens and smooths skin in the treated area due to the effect that the laser has on the collagen in the skin.
The FDA has approved this cosmetic procedure to be used as a way to eliminate fat and improve skin texture. The procedure is considered safe, as long as an experienced medical provider performs it.
Local anesthesia is used at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York. This is because local anesthesia carries fewer risks for the patient and it is more affordable.
The cost of Smartlipo is much less than traditional liposuction. There are fewer side effects. The recovery time is significantly less. All of these benefits make this procedure a great option for those who want to get rid of a muffin top or love handles.
