What is a SmartLipo™ procedure?
Smartlipo uses laser technology to remove fat cells. By using a special laser-tipped surgical instrument, Dr. Carlos Chacón will target stubborn fat cells, which causes less trauma in the surrounding blood vessels, nerves, and tissues. Local anesthesia is used for the majority of our patients in the necessary treatment area, thus avoiding the after effects that can occur with general anesthesia.
Who is a SmartLipo™ Candidate?
Hundreds of women and men have chosen liposuction at Divino Plastic Surgery to remove significant fatty packets to enhance their body shape. You may have smaller pockets of fat. If you have been searching for a less-invasive cosmetic procedure; well, you’re in luck – we are pleased to offer SmartLipo™ to our San Diego plastic surgery patients. SmartLipo™ is a great choice for this less-invasive procedure because it eliminates tricky areas of fat almost anywhere on the body, and is perfect for subtly shaping your hips, belly, or the area under your chin.
What to Expect From the SmartLipo™ Procedure
Another benefit is tightened skin and improved skin tone that can occur because Smartlipo encourages new collagen production. The average procedure time takes about an hour, with additional time needed for larger areas or larger volume fat removal. If you are considering liposuction at Divino Plastic Surgery, it’s worth considering SmartLipo™.
In addition to laser liposuction, we also offer VASER LipoSelection®, which relies on ultrasound technology to achieve remarkable body slimming results.
