Laser-Assisted Smart Liposuction
Many people exercise and diet but just can't get rid of those love handles or flabby upper arms. Now you can get the body you've alway wanted with the newest breakthrough in liposuction — SmartLipo™ Laser Body Sculpting.
Laser-assisted liposuction is ideal for patients who want to eliminate localized deposits of fat on virtually any part of the body, including the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, "bra fat," abdomen, "love handles," "saddle bags," inner and outer thighs, and knees. The best candidates for SmartLipo are men and women who are not significantly overweight and are in overall good health.
SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure that uses a precise laser to melt away unwanted fat while simultaneously firming up the skin by stimulating collagen production. The laser also coagulates blood vessels, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising than conventional liposuction.
Birmingham, AL Smartlipo at Hedden Plastic Surgery
The skilled surgeons of Hedden Plastic Surgery perform the smart laser liposuction procedure by inserting a tiny cannula (or tube) containing a laser fiber into the skin. The laser fiber delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
