How many times do you sit by the pool or beach and compare yourself to other women? You may look to see if there are women with pooches wearing a two-piece. You may be tempted to compare thighs, buttocks, and arms with theirs.

For some of us, we will be able find enough faults to meet our satisfaction because if the other person don’t look better than you, it doesn’t matter to you. The only problem is that this line of thinking just leads you to look at the next woman in line to see how she measures up to your standards.

When you find someone that you think looks better than you, sometimes we’re tempted to say, “I really need to slim my (fill in the blank).”

Instead of going through the same routine this summer at the beach or pool, why not help yourself feel confident enough to nix the temptation to play the comparison game? You can have that slim, tight stomach. You can have trim thighs, arms, and a shapelier buttocks. It can happen with some help from Smartlipo laser liposuction.

What Is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo is tumescent liposuction, but it uses laser technology. The cosmetic surgeon uses a special laser to liquefy fat deposits. Once the fat is turned to liquid, the surgeon removes it by making a small incision on the skin. Since there is only a small incision made, most patients only experience a small amount of swelling and bruising.

Most patients receive pain medications, a sedative, and numbing for this procedure. This local anesthesia reduces recovery time and is much safer than general anesthesia.

Recovery Time: What to Expect

One benefit of Smartlipo is the short recovery time. Most patients only need a few days to recover enough to return to their job. A compression garment may be necessary for several weeks (follow your surgeon’s advice). This keeps swelling down while the area heals and helps the skin heal in the treated areas.
