Ideal candidates for smart lipo
Most patients that are good candidates for liposuction are also candidates for smart lipo Miami. Being in good health, close to the ideal weight, quitting smoking, and discontinuing blood thinners are essential requirements for this procedure. Patients with healthy skin who want to enhance their figure in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and upper arms, can benefit from smart lipo Miami.
Preparing for smart liposuction
When preparing for smart liposuction, the first thing is scheduling a consultation to determine whether you are a fit candidate for this procedure and choose the right technique for your body composition. Your surgeon will also provide you with the medications you need during this time. It’s important you follow all instructions so that you can have a successful surgery without complications. Some things you will be advised to discontinue are
Alcohol because it can affect wound healing.
Smoking as it may increase complications.
Stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements.
Your surgeon will provide you with a list of specific medications to avoid before surgery.
Some items such as clothing, healthy food and snacks, ice packs, stool softeners, pain medication, and bandages should be gathered before surgery.
What to expect during smart lipo
Before the procedure, the surgeon marks the targeted areas and confirms them with you. A local anesthetic is applied to help minimize discomfort. A tiny cannula is inserted under the skin to deliver laser directly to the target area. Fat cells are melted and skin tissue coagulated to facilitate the removal of stubborn fat and tightening of the skin for smoother results. The liquefied fat is suctioned out or absorbed in the bloodstream. Small blood vessels are also coagulated, resulting in less bleeding and faster recovery time. The incision is so tiny that it doesn’t require stitches. The results are a clean and painless procedure with mild scarring.
Recovery depends on the patient, the amount of fat removed, and areas treated. While some patients will recover in just a few days, others need up to a week. You should plan ahead of time and take some time off work. Smart lipo involves less recovery than traditional liposuction, but recovery should be expected. Most patients enjoy a quick recovery with minimal pain and discomfort since general anesthesia is not necessary for this procedure. Patients may return to work an hour after treatment and resume a normal lifestyle within days. Specific instructions on how to care for the site will be provided.

Smart Lipo procedure key Faqs
Is smart lipo FDA-approved?
It’s the first FDA approved laser device for the rupture and liquefying of fat cells. It’s more efficient at leaving these cells liquefied and permanently destroying them so once they are eliminated, they will never return.
What are the benefits of smart lipo?
This procedure has a variety of benefits, including:
Gentler than traditional liposuction.
It can be used in most areas of the body.
It stimulates collagen production.
Minimal scarring due to the incision being minimal.
Less recovery required.
Performed under local anesthesia.
What areas can be treated with smart lipo?
The hip and love handles are commonly treated with smart lipo. Most patients seeking this procedure are women who are pregnant, but men can also experience stubborn fat in these areas. Smart lipo Miami will sculpt and slim down these areas beautifully, even when diet and exercise fails.
What are the risks and side effects?
As with any other technique, this procedure may carry some side effects that you should learn about prior to surgery. Fortunately, the side effects are minor and on a temporary basis. Some of them include swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Your surgeon will perform an evaluation and tailor a plan in line with your specific goals. Patient safety and results are our primary goals here at Unique Aesthetics Center.
When are the results seen?
The results are apparent within a few weeks with the final results seen in several months.
Are the results permanent?
The results are permanent as long as the patient keeps a healthy weight through a diet and exercise program. However, you can undergo further treatment in the future as required.
What are the main differences between smart lipo and liposuction?
Both procedures have been used for years, so they are highly effective with pros and cons. For example, smart liposuction shares insightful views of the areas treated, and the surgeon has more mobility for these areas and with exact precision. While smart liposuction and traditional liposuction both use a laser cannula to suction fat cells, smart lipo Miami liquefies the fat cells first and then uses the cannula to remove them. After a traditional liposuction, the patient needs compression garments for a week while smart lipo requires less recovery time. Skin tightening is a feature included in laser fat removal while normal liposuction does not offer this tightening ability.
Can I get smart lipo in the entire body?
Smart lipo is designated for specific areas that have unwanted pockets of stubborn fat. This procedure can’t be used to remove fat cells all over the body as recovery may increase as well as the risk of complications.
