Cynosure Launches SmartLipo Patient Website
Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on March 26, 2010
Men and women interested in undergoing the SmartLipo laser liposuction procedure can now learn more about the latest technologies and advances in laser liposuction by visiting Cynosure’s own informational website, www.smartlipocynosure.com.
The SmartLipo procedure is designed to melt the fat cells before removal, making it easier for the surgeon to remove large amounts of fat while sculpting the body into the desired silhouette.
SmartLipo also helps with skin tightening, and works at a deeper level to increase collagen production and tighten up the dermis to improve results. Another benefit of laser liposuction is that the healing process is much faster than traditional liposuction, and most patients can wear a foam vest or compression garment for a few weeks and then resume exercise and other activities in order to support the healing process.
The Smart Lipo website explains the entire procedure, and provides information on target areas that can be effectively treated with the surgery, and what patients can expect from the entire process. Smart Lipo is particularly effective for getting rid of “love handles”, and other problem areas that are not responding to diet and exercise. Since the procedure does tighten the skin when the fat is removed, the patient does not need to worry about dimpling or sagging of the skin.
Most people can get the SmartLipo procedure under local anesthesia, and the incision is about the size of a pen tip. A laser fiber is inserted through a small tube into the body, and when fired, ruptures the fat cell membranes. The fat cells are destroyed permanently, and the liquefied fat is suctioned out. The body then produces collagen as it coagulates the skin tissues, which in turn has a tightening effect. Only one treatment session is needed, and results vary depending on the treatment site. Most people see results within a week, and continued improvement over the course of three to six months.
