SMARTLIPO is a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure. It provides a safer, quicker and more cost effective treatment using the latest advancements in cosmetic surgery.
Cynosure, who manufactures Smart Lipo says it has become one of the most successful liposuction procedures. Smart Lipo uses a hollow pen sized instrument called a cannula, inserting it into a minor incision made by the surgeon. The cannula is about 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising. In addition, there is a much quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction with no anesthesia necessary.
Smart Lipo was pioneered in Europe and FDA approved in November 2006. Smart Lipo is a new Laser Body Sculpting procedure with less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction.
