What Is SmartLipo®?
The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito regularly performs SmartLipo® and other cosmetic procedures for patients in San Francisco, CA. SmartLipo® is a liposuction procedure that utilizes a small laser to melt fat deposits so that they can more easily be removed. SmartLipo® is less invasive than traditional liposuction techniques, and there is generally less bleeding, swelling, and bruising involved in the procedure.
SmartLipo® can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia depending on the size of the treatment area. A small laser is used to rupture fat cells in the treatment area which liquefies the fat. The melted fat is then removed from the body through a small incision in the skin. It is similar to traditional liposuction in that respect, although the incision that is made is much smaller with SmartLipo®.
