What are the Benefits of SmartLipo vs. Liposuction?

If you’ve shied away from the idea of undergoing liposuction surgery – even if you’d love to get rid of those stubborn bits of body fat – you’re not alone. There are plenty of people who dislike the idea of getting liposuction for a number of reasons. For example, some people find the excessive bruising to be intimidating, while others may worry about loose skin once the fat tissue has been removed.

No matter what your reasons for avoiding traditional liposuction, there’s a new option out there that can help you get rid of excessive fat without invasive surgery: SmartLipo!

 

SmartLipo is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive surgical procedure that approaches liposuction from a different angle: instead of manually destroying fat tissue, SmartLipo uses laser heat energy to liquefy fat. This type of procedure has the following benefits:

  • It can be performed under local anesthesia
  • It minimizes the amount of bruising and swelling post-recovery
  • It speeds up the recovery process, meaning you can return to your normal routine faster

In addition to the above benefits, SmartLipo helps tighten skin in the treatment area. Here’s […]

Laser Lipo vs. Traditional Lipo: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to looking your absolute best, you know that a healthy diet and regular exercise can make a huge difference. Yet if certain parts of your body aren’t responding to all of your hard work, you may need to call in some extra help to get the contoured results you’re looking for.

If you’ve been considering a liposuction procedure, you may be confused by all the options out there. From laser liposuction to traditional lipo, multiple procedures are all competing for your attention.

But which one is the right option for you?

Laser Lipo vs. Traditional Lipo

Just a decade ago, people who wanted to achieve a more contoured appearance had to settle for traditional liposuction – and some still do today. This surgical procedure uses a cannula to essentially “bash” away chunks of fat, which can cause significant bruising and swelling in the treatment area (not to mention unattractive surgical scars). Additionally, traditional liposuction can require a lengthy recovery process of four to eight weeks.

On top of these drawbacks, traditional liposuction can’t address a major aesthetic concern that’s left behind from fat removal: saggy skin. Liposuction is usually followed by a separate skin removal procedure, which can be even more costly and arduous than liposuction […]

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Laser Liposuction?

Summer is just around the corner, and your calendar is already booked with tons of social outings. You have patio parties, baseball games, and trips to the beach to look forward to.  In fact, with everything you have planned for this Summer, you’ll barely have any downtime for yourself!

Maybe it’s your busy Summer schedule that’s holding you back from considering liposuction.  After all, you want to make sure you have time for all of these activities, PLUS your normal routine. You can’t exactly take a few weeks off to devote to recovery!

Introducing Laser Liposuction

If you’re thinking about undergoing liposuction, there is a new surgical technique that makes for a much more manageable recovery – meaning you can get back to your regular routine faster.

What makes laser-assisted liposuction different is that the laser heat energy melts the stubborn fat, which causes it to liquefy instead of using a metal cannula like in traditional liposuction which literally “bashes” the fat into smaller “chunks”. Both destroy fat which is then removed via suction technology but obviously using the laser makes the process of fat emulsification much more gentle, refined, and tolerable.

What Are the Benefits?

The benefits of laser-assisted liposuction are definitely noteworthy. Consider this:

  • Laser-assisted liposuction causes less damage […]

How Can Laser Lipo Target Stubborn Fat?

Do you feel like certain fatty deposits have taken up permanent residency around your abdomen, thighs, and flanks?

If you’ve been approaching fat loss the right way – through a healthy diet and plenty of exercise – it might be perplexing to still have to struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. Unfortunately, our bodies tend to be hardwired to cling onto fat deposits, especially around the stomach and thighs. That’s why we struggle to lose fat in these areas, despite eating clean and working out.

What’s the Solution?

If you’re ready to take an additional step towards shaking off that stubborn fat once and for all, then it’s time to consider SmartLipo, a laser liposuction procedure at Awaken Aesthetics in Torrance, CA.!

To understand how SmartLipo works, lets evaluate the process and how it compares to other fat reduction methods out there on the market.

How does SmartLipo Compare to Non-Surgical Procedures like CoolSculpting? 

One of the main differences between CoolSculpting and SmartLipo is that the latter requires surgery; CoolSculpting does not.

Today’s laser lipo techniques allow your plastic surgeon to heat and liquefy stubborn pockets of fat for removal. While laser lipo is still a surgical procedure, it differs from traditional liposuction in that only local anesthesia is needed. The […]
