5 Advantages You Get With Smart Lipo Over Traditional Liposuction

For decades, liposuction has been the go-to method for removing stubborn pockets of fat, helping people smooth and slim their figures. While effective, this surgical procedure isn’t without its drawbacks, such as the uncomfortable aftermath of dislodging and removing fat. By adding a little modern laser technology to this traditional fat-removal method, the world of liposuction just got a whole lot easier. And that’s exactly what Smartlipo® Triplex does.

Here at RB Laser Lipo & Aesthetics, under the guidance of Dr. Ronald Bush, we pride ourselves on offering our Palm Desert, California, clients the very best tools to bring out the best versions of themselves. And when it comes to the battle of the bulge, we’ve found that our Smartlipo has given us the winning edge, with several benefits over traditional liposuction.

Here are five to get you started.

1. It’s all in the prep work

Any job well done often comes down to good prep work, and that’s exactly what the Smartlipo system offers. During your procedure, we first insert a thin tube, or cannula, armed with a laser fiber that delivers thermal energy directly into your fat cells. This energy heats up and melts your fat, which makes it far easier for us to remove.

Because not all fat is created equal, the Smartlipo Triplex system has three settings, allowing us to tackle even the toughest fat. The system also features a SmartSense™ delivery system, which allows us to distribute the energy with precision as the system monitors the motion and delivery of the laser power.

Even the cannula we use is modernized with a ThermaGuide™ temperature gauge that ensures we deliver the correct level of energy at all times.

2. A cleaner fight

With traditional liposuction, we have to go in and loosen your fat before we can remove it. This often involved moving the cannula around, not terribly gently, to pry the fat loose, leaving patients with some considerable swelling, bruising, and a fair bit of soreness afterward.

By melting your fat using the Smartlipo laser fiber beforehand, we can suction it out easily, sparing your tissue the manipulation and invasive probing of traditional liposuction.

3. A smoother result

Another fantastic benefit of using laser energy during your liposuction is that it tightens your skin through coagulation. And this effect continues after your procedure since the laser energy also spurs a collagen response in your tissue, creating new structural support. This means that Smartlipo not only removes your fat, but the tissue in your treatment area reforms itself firmly over your slimmer profile.

4. Less downtime

With Smartlipo, the procedure time itself is greatly reduced, as is your downtime afterward. We perform the Smartlipo right in our offices, using only a local anesthesia. Once we’re finished, you’re free to go home. While you should still count on taking it easy for a day or two afterward, and you should wear a compression garment to help with the healing, there are no drains and lengthy recovery periods that often come with traditional liposuction.

5. One and done

Moving away from our comparison with traditional liposuction, we also wanted to address some of the new laser products that melt away, or freeze away, fat. We’re not saying that these technologies are ineffective, but bear in mind that you need a series of treatments that are spaced out over many months before you see any results. With Smartlipo, we deliver better results in only one procedure, which means that you’ll be ready for your big reveal in far less time.
