What’s the difference between SlimLipo and Traditional Liposuction?

If you need to reduce stubborn fat bulges and contour your body, liposuction is certainly the ideal solution. Liposuction is a proven and true fat reduction method, but thanks to technological advancements there are now alternatives like SlimLipo available. But what’s the difference between SlimLipo and traditional liposuction.

Why liposuction may be a right for you

There are fatty deposits in certain areas of the body that are very difficult to reduce, even with healthy eating and regular exercise. Liposuction can trim them for you. The abdomen, flanks, thighs, and upper arms are common areas for liposuction (learn more).

What’s the difference between SlimLipo and Traditional Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that eliminates fat from the body using a cannula. A cannula is a small thin metal tube that is inserted into the fat layer under the skin through tiny incisions. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the fat, which is suctioned out with a vacuum that is attached to it.

SlimLipo is a laser lipo system that uses laser wavelengths to gently melt the unwanted fat cells. This differs from the fat reduction method used for traditional liposuction. SlimLipo is equipped with two distinct wavelengths (924 nm and 975 nm), so in addition to reducing fat, it tightens the skin with the 975 nm wavelength. Traditional liposuction does not tighten the skin.

SlimLipo is less invasive than traditional liposuction. It requires smaller incisions, so there is no scarring, and no tissues are destroyed (click here to learn more).

What is SmartLipo and is it right for you?

If you would like to get rid of your ‘saddle bags’ or ‘muffin  top’ without undergoing surgery, you may be interested in non-invasive body contouring options like Smart Lipo. Many people choose Smart Lipo to get rid of these bothersome areas, because it is fast and effective, and virtually painless. But what is Smart Lipo, and how do you know if it’s right for you.

What is Smart Lipo?
Smart Lipo or laser lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates unwanted fat deposits in the body. It also tightens the skin and contours the body. The procedure involves using a thin fiber-optic laser to melt the fatty deposits.

How does it work?
Local anesthetic is first applied to numb the areas to be treated. Very small incisions are made through which the fiber-optic laser is introduced. The heat from the laser melts the fat, and promotes the growth of new collagen, which tightens the skin.  There is very little bruising with Smart Lipo, and the downtime is minimal.

Is Smart Lipo right for me?
If you have resistant areas of fat in places like the neck, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, or flanks, and you are also close to your ideal weight, Smart Lipo may be a good option for you. However, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.

Smart Lipo will help you lose inches, as it adjusts the appearance of fatty deposits in various parts of the body, but it is not meant as a solution for weight loss.

For more information about Smart Lipo, contact the office of Connecticut based board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon. Call The Langdon Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery at 844-551-9880 or 203-745-0340, to schedule a consultation.
