Alabama SmartLipo™ Laser Body Sculpting
Eliminate areas of unwanted fat and tone your entire body with laser-assisted liposuction
You've tried dieting. You've tried exercise. But parts of your body have simply refused to tone up.
Now you can change all that. LaserBodySculpting is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body has only a finite amount of these cells, no new fat cells come back. With SmartLipo you can finally have that body you've always wanted.
Hedden Plastic Surgery has been given the honor of being selecting as a teaching facility for SmartLipo laser liposuction. With the new laser-assisted SmartLipo system, along with the skills of our caring surgeons, patients are able to achieve results they never thought possible.
The LaserBodySculpting procedure eliminates unwanted fat while simultaneously tightening tissue and is ideal for treating small areas. The powerful yet precise laser permanently destroys fat cells by melting the fat, while instantly coagulating blood vessels, which results in less bleeding, swelling and bruising than conventional liposuction. The energy emitted by the laser also stimulates the tissue, inducing collagen production, resulting in skin tightening.
SmartLipo Named Best Body Contouring Procedure
For the third year in a row, SmartLipo laser body sculpting was named the Top Body Contouring Procedure in the 2011 American Health and Beauty Readers' Choice Awards. See the full story
How does LaserBodySculpting work?
This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
What areas of the body can be treated?
LaserBodySculpting is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, "bra fat," abdomen, "love handles," "saddle bags," inner and outer thighs and knees.
Am I a candidate?
LaserBodySculpting is meant for areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. The perfect candidate is in good health and of normal body weight.
How does LaserBodySculpting compare to conventional liposuction?
Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, laser assisted lipolysis is often a perfect complement.
Is there a recovery period?
LaserBodySculpting is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light trauma can occur, but you'll be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after 2 weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated.
