The Cosmetic Surgery Center of El Cerrito offers SmartLipo® treatments to residents of Richmond, CA.
What Is SmartLipo®?
SmartLipo® is also known as laser-assisted liposuction. This procedure is growing in popularity because it is a less invasive alternative to regular liposuction. SmartLipo® involves using a laser to reduce body fat. The thighs, face, stomach, legs, arms, and chest are some of the areas that can be treated with SmartLipo®.
Dr. Patino will be required to make a small incision prior to this procedure. After the incision has been made, a tube called a cannula will be inserted. The tube contains the laser. The intense heat from the laser causes the fat to melt. Not only does SmartLipo® reduce body fat, but it also helps tighten the skin by boosting collagen production.
The downtime required after this procedure is minimal. In fact, most people will be able to return to work within one to two days. Patients can expect to experience some minor discomfort, but that will usually go away within 20 days.
