What is the difference between liposuction and smartlipo?
Traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia and involves inserting a cannula through a large incision to scrape away excess fat from under the skin. With SmartLipo™, a laser is fed through a small cannula inserted through a tiny incision. The heat from the laser melts the unwanted fat so that it can be suctioned out of the body and also helps tighten the skin. SmartLipo™ requires less downtime than traditional liposuction.
