It’s almost swimsuit season, even though some of us aren’t ready to admit it yet. With temperatures rising and pools opening, it will soon be time to shed some layers. The perfect bikini body is easier to attain than you may realize. Smartlipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces unwanted fat and tightens skin. This procedure will have you confidently rocking a bikini in no time!
What is Smartlipo™?
Smartlipo™ is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure used for removing small pockets of fat throughout the body. Energy from a laser is used to break apart fat cells and tighten the overlying skin. This procedure results in less swelling, bruising and downtime than traditional liposuction.
Am I a good candidate for Smartlipo™?
A good candidate for liposuction is typically someone who is interested in contouring, not weight loss. Dr. Keith Hodge, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, offers this advice for patients considering liposuction: “If your skin still has good elasticity, then liposuction may be the best choice. However, if you have a number of stretch marks and loose skin, then a mini tummy tuck combined with liposuction may be the best option.”
