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.
