Everyone knows that no matter how much you diet and exercise; there are always stubborn, localized pockets of fat that will not go away. For some people, this area is located in their chin and neck area.
While liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can make you look and feel better. SmartLipo laser lipolysis uses a laser to rapidly dissolve fat and tighten the surrounding skin in the neck, instantaneously erasing 10 years off your appearance. This FDA approved, revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure offers less bleeding, swelling, and bruising and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction.
Using local anesthesia only, the procedure is performed with a tiny cannula that contains a laser fiber that when moved back and forth the laser energy dissolves fat and tightens skin by stimulating the production of collagen. SmartLipo laser lipolysis when combined with microcannula traditional liposuction usually takes 45 minutes to perform completely under local anesthesia. Postoperative recovery is fast and usually complete within 2 weeks. The skin tightening is a gradual process with continual improvement seen over several months. A special chin compression strap needs to be worn for 3 days straight followed by 12 hours daily for 1 week. Most patients can return to work within 48 hours.
