As they age, both men and women can struggle with a variety of issues in relation to fat on their body. Even with regular exercise and a healthy diet, it can be extremely difficult to lose certain pockets of fat in places like the stomach, hips, legs, and buttocks. When you put in so much effort to take care of your body, it can be frustrating when you don’t get the look you rightfully deserve. This is why people opt to get plastic surgery which will help them eliminate excess fat.
In terms of its popularity, Smartlipo is still somewhat new, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t gone through extensive testing and research. After decades of thorough studies, the procedure was approved by the FDA, and patients now have access to safe removal of those excess fat cells from parts of their body. Here are some more important things you should know about the procedure, and how it’s utilized at NuBody Concepts.
Which Patients Can Use This Procedure?
Speaking broadly, Smartlipo is for those patients who want to remove excess fat from one or more areas of their body. This fat is typically not going to be responsive to exercise, even if you just focus on the muscles there. For these patients, dieting has also proven to be ineffective, which is ultimately what leads them to find another solution for the fat. This is why the patients who do end up getting Smartlipo are (and should be) in good physical health. It is not a procedure for people who need to lose excessive amounts of weight in a short amount of time, especially if they haven’t tried diet and exercise yet. As with any major medical procedure, you’re going to need to consult with your primary care physician beforehand to make sure that your body is in the right condition for surgery.
How Effective is Smartlipo?
At Nubody Concepts, Smartlipo is not provided as a standalone procedure. While some doctors may offer that, we perform the procedure in combination with Aqualipo for maximum effectiveness. Aqualipo utilizes water to target those fatty areas, and then Smartlipo takes a more precise approach. When combined, these two methods help remove as much fat as possible. However, the lasting impact of Smartlipo is ultimately up to the patient. If you go back to unhealthy eating habits and don’t regularly exercise, the body will react naturally and fat will accumulate again.
Will Smartlipo Take A Long Time To Recover From?
Since the nature of these procedures is laser focused precision, there is very limited impact in terms of recovery. We’re confident in saying that many patients who undergo the procedure can return to their normal daily activities within a few days, with some going back to work the next day. More rigorous activity, including exercise, should be limited for one or two weeks (as instructed by your doctor) to help the body fully recover.
When you’re ready to help transform your body in a healthy, safe, and positive way, we invite you to contact us to speak to one of our knowledgeable medical consultants.
