What is SmartLipo? Chicago
SmartLipo is one of the most affordable and sought-after cosmetic procedures to quickly and safely remove fat deposits below the skin.
Only a highly-skilled, trained physician should perform this cosmetic surgery procedure.
Smart lipo is an outpatient procedure performed in as little as two hours using tumescent anesthesia
The doctor starts by injecting a solution to numb the treatment area.
The cosmetic surgeon then inserts a sucking syringe called a cannula.
The cannula has a powerful variable wavelength laser beam used to liquefy and extract fat from the targeted areas.
SmartLipo cosmetic surgery promotes the growth of new collagen after the fat cell removal procedure to produce better final results.
SmartLipo is a preferred method to do some skin tightening procedures around many body parts.

Why should you choose Smart Lipo over traditional liposuction?
Traditional liposuction used to be a sizably invasive procedure using a large cannula with powerful suction. To minimize discomfort, it usually required general anesthesia and expensive hospitalization.
SmartLipo uses advances in technology. With new generation local anesthetics, blood vessel constrictors, and variable-length laser wands, your plastic surgeon performs the surgery quicker, safer with longer-lasting results.
In the same procedure, a cosmetic or plastic surgeon can also do body sculpting, body contour in different body areas. Thus, the name SmartLipo.
Laser Lipolysis works by inserting an advanced microcannula through a small incision below the skin to access fat deposits. The precise instrument is less damaging to the surrounding tissue as it can easily access fat pearls and allows for a shortened recovery time.
The cannula serves two purposes: 1) it liquefies the fat deposit by heat produced by laser energy 2) it acts as an extraction point for the fat removal.
The smart Lipo laser fiber helps to seal off blood vessels, decreasing bleeding, bruising, and post-operative swelling.
Following surgery, the laser-treated area will produce new collagen while eliminating the dead body cells. The new collagen causes the skin to appear tighter and reduces dimpling.
