Lots of people are struggling with stubborn fat they can’t seem to get rid of through any of the conventional means such as dieting and exercising. For many years, liposuction was the only option these people had, until SmartLipo™, a minimally-invasive alternative, came into the picture. At MD Beauty Labs, we believe that you should understand your options beforehand to make a decision that works for you.
What is SmartLipo™ All About?
SmartLipo™, sometimes referred to as laser-assisted liposuction, is a relatively new innovation in aesthetic medicine. The procedure is an upgrade to traditional liposuction as it provides faster, safer and better results. During the treatment, laser energy is applied to heat up the targeted fat cells before they are removed.
Questions to Ask
If you are seriously considering SmartLipo™, the first step is to consult a specialist who is licensed to carry out the procedure and who has a positive track record. Talk about your options and expectations. Below are just a few questions you should not fail to ask:
How Will I Feel During the Procedure?
The good thing about SmartLipo™ is that you have the option to stay awake throughout the procedure and still feel as comfortable as if nothing was happening. The treatment eliminates the requirement for general anesthesia, which has its risks, and offers local anesthesia as the alternative.
What About My Medications?
As a general rule, physicians agree that you should avoid certain medications at least two weeks before your appointment. As for prescription medication you can’t stop taking, our doctor will advise you further after analyzing your medical history.
What Should I Expect After Going Home?
It is important to relax as your body is trying to heal. You may have to wear a compression garment after the procedure. Typically, you should be able to go back to your daily activities after just days as opposed to weeks and weeks.
