Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans choose liposuction to remove unwanted fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. And an increasing number of patients seeking liposuction have discovered the advantages of Smartlipo, an advanced liposuction procedure that offers patients numerous benefits over other methods.
Board-certified Andover and Nashua plastic surgeon Dr. George P. Chatson has extensive experience helping patients remove stubborn deposits of fat and achieve the smooth contours they desire with Smartlipo. If you’re considering liposuction, please call our Andover office at 978-687-1151 or our Nashua office at 603-882-2103 to schedule your personal consultation and learn if this laser-assisted technique is right for you.
There are different types of liposuction, all of which are intended to physically remove unwanted fat cells from the body. Areas commonly treated include the abdomen, hips, thighs, back and buttocks.
Smartlipo is an effective and less-invasive form of liposuction that uses a laser to liquefy fat cells prior to extraction. By melting your fat, the procedure is more efficient and less traumatic compared with traditional liposuction, and it can be used to treat more parts of the body.
Other advantages offered by Smartlipo include:
- Excellent results: The laser used in the Smartlipo procedure melts fat cells and stimulates collagen production for a firm, smooth appearance.
- Quick recovery period: The procedure takes less time than other techniques and is less invasive as well; you’ll be more comfortable, and you’ll recover more quickly.
- Minimal bleeding: The laser cauterizes blood vessels as fat is melted, which minimizes bleeding and swelling.
- Versatility: Because the instrument used to extract fat is very precise, only a small incision is needed, which means such parts of the body as the chin, face, and neck can be effectively treated.
