Q What is Smart Lipo Cosmetic Surgery?
Smartlipo is a liposuction, fat removal cosmetic surgery procedure which uses laser energy to break up and dissolve fatty tissue beneath the skin. By directing the energy to the area beneath the surface of the skin, the technique also encourages the development of collagen, which results in a tighter, more toned appearance.

Thanks to the tiny nature of the fiber of the Smart Lipo laser - 600 microns or less than 1 millimeter - reduces trauma to the tissue during the smart lipo cosmetic surgery procedure while still being able to get into superficial areas just under the skin. This enables such conditions as cellulite and skin dimpling to be affected .

Q How would the Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery procedure help me?
A consultation with the cosmetic - plastic surgeon is the first step in considering Smart Lipo. A patient should openly discuss his/her goals and expectations with the plastic surgeon. The Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon will explain to the patient whether this procedure is right for her/him. Anyone should always keep in mind that the desired result is enhancement, not total perfection.

Q How important are psychological aspect in relation to this cosmetic surgery procedure?
Emotional stability is the primary factor to be considered before any aesthetic/cosmetic/plastic surgery is performed. A "new body" does not guarantee a new life or an end to all personal problems. It is mostly the mental attitude of the individual that determines a successful outcome. Smat Lipo cosmetic surgery can improve your appearance and renew your self-confidence; the rest is entirely up to you.

Q How is Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery performed?
Either local or general anaesthesia may be advised, depending on the extent of the procedure. A pressure garment is usually worn for 2-3 months post-surgery in order to to encourage the skin to contract to the new shape. This is vital to the recovery procedure. You should wear this until the surgeon deems it necessary as it could affect the result badly (dimpling, sagging). Bear in mind that it isn't the most comfortable of clothing to wear, especially during the summer, so it is a fact to consider before getting the surgery.

Q Will I have to stay at the hospital after the cosmetic surgery procedure?
Liposuction can be performed as a day case or alternatively one day hospital stay. This will depend on your general health and the extent of the smartlipo procedure.

Q Are there any side effects of Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery?
Bruising and swelling are common but minor compared to traditional liposuction. The bruising normally fades, subsides in 1-2 weeks and the swelling in 8 weeks. Very minor irregularities under the skin may occur and this may be accompanied by looseness of the skin - although the skin does usually contract over a period of time - that why the pressure garment needs to be worn.

Q Is SmartLipo cosmetic surgery right for me?
Nearly anyone is a good candidate for Smart Lipo. In general, someone considering Smart Lipo:
  1. Is in good health, she/he is within 20 lbs/ 12kg. of his or her ideal weight;
  2. Has one or more areas of local body fat deposits that have responded poorly to diet and/or exercise;
  3. And she/he is concerned by these fatty areas, and would like to get rid of fat deposits permanently
Smartlipo cosmetic surgery ideal for young women or men who have slight bulges which persist after diet and exercise and who really want to sculpt and attain the 'perfect' body. It is not a substitute for weight loss.

Q.Will the Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery leave any scars?
Although your cosmetic plastic surgeon will make every effort to keep them as inconspicuous as possible, scars are the inevitable result of any surgery. Because of their tiny size (usually about 0 .5 cm) scars are insignificant after Smart Lipo.

Q Can I have further Smartlipo cosmetic proceure?
Yes, you can. One procedure will be enough, if you do not gain weight! Occasionally imperfections in the operated area will result after Smartlipo cosmetic surgery, which may need "touch-up”surgery. This is unfortunate but an inevitable part of any Smart Lipo or any "normal" liposuction practice. Even in the best hands, liposuction is not an exact science!

Q.When can I resume normal activities after the smartlipo cosmetic surgery?
Returning to your normal activities is an individual matter. Your surgeon will advise you on your schedule, but most activities may be resumed within a weeks. Many return to work after 5 days and in some cases even sooner.

Q Can I gain the weight after the Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery procedure?
While Smart Lipo cosmetic suegery is an excellent way to reduce excess body fat in specific areas, the removal of certain fat cells is by no means a guarantee against weight gain. Adults have a fixed number of fat cells in their bodies, so the fat cells that are removed during liposuction will not regenerate. However, if patients do not observe a healthy diet and exercise routine after liposuction, the remaining fat cells can still grow and contribute to weight gain. Patients may also find that, if they do not make alterations to their exercise and diet routines after liposuction, they are more apt to gain weight in areas of their bodies that were not previously problematic, where the fat cells were left unaltered by their procedure. The most successful and satisfied patients are those who use their liposuction procedure as motivation to develop healthier eating and exercise habits.

Q Should I go on a diet before my smartlipo liposuction cosmetic surgery?
Eat vitamin, mineral and fiber-rich foods. Closely monitor fat intake before and after your Smart Lipo cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to remember that while fats cells won't reappear in areas where you had Smart Lipo, you can gain weight in other untreated areas of the body. Moreover while excessive dieting is never a good idea, don’t go on a stringent diet before and after your liposuction, because can inhibit your ability to heal.

Q How many SmartLipo cosmetic surgery treatments are required?
Most patients typically require only one treatment. Each SmartLipo session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. SmartLipo can also be used for “touch-ups” and revisions to previously treated areas.

Q Does SmartLipo cosmetic surgery treat cellulite?
The SmartLipo procedure will improve the body's shape and may reduce cellulite to a certain degree.
