SmartLipo in San Diego and Carlsbad

smartlipo procedure san diego cosmetic surgeonIf you used to have a good figure but you are struggling to lose the fat stored on any part of your body, then the Smart Lipo procedure is most likely your best choice, as it removes fat deposits resistant to dieting and exercise. SmartLipo is regarded as the best liposuction procedure nowadays because of its numerous advantages as compared to the traditional traditional liposuction method.

We can use the SmartLipo procedure to address any area of the body where you are experiencing stubborn fat deposits. This procedure is excellent for both men and women and we have even treated our San Diego area mommy makeover patients with SmartLipo, addressing all of their body image concerns due to post-pregnancy fat deposits.

Benefits of SmartLipo

Among the benefits of undergoing Smart Lipo are the following:

•    Shorter downtime
•    There is no need for general anesthesia (you will not be asleep)
•    It has a tightening effect, which prevents sagging of the skin post-treatment
•    It is less invasive and will require smaller incisions
•    No stitches
•    The patient will be less prone to infection and other surgical complications

The SmartLipo we perform combines laser liposuction and tumescent liposuction for the best results and easy recovery. You are free to go home right after the procedure and recover within two to three days. Please read the paragraphs below for more details on Smart Lipo.

The SmartLipo Procedure

To perform SmartLipo, first, Dr. Tirgari will put a local anesthetic on the area where the SmartLipo will be performed. Once the area is numb, the surgeon will make a small incision and insert a cannula with a laser fiber inside, which is then placed just below the skin. This is the subcutaneous layer of the skin and this is where the fat is stored.

Dr. Tirgari will now move the cannula back and forth under the skin to loosen the fat. A small, red light emitted by the laser will guide Dr. Tirgari during the procedure. The laser also assists in the skin tightening effect post surgery. Once the laser fiber touches the fat cells, they swell and eventually burst into fatty oil. The fatty liquid is then simply suctioned out of the body via the same cannula or suctioning device. Although minimal fatty oil may remain behind, this liquid fat will be burned post surgery by the body’s natural detoxification system. In fact, it is absorbed by the body and excreted through the liver.

Once the laser touches the fat cells, it also triggers the production of collagen. This protein is responsible for maintaining the firmness of the area where liposuction was performed.

Please watch the video below where our Dr. Reza Tirgari discusses SmartLipo.

SmartLipo Post-Operative Results and Recovery

Since you will not be under general anesthesia, you will just be given some time to rest after the procedure, during which time we will monitor you closely. After that, you will be given instructions about the home care regimen that you need to perform as well as the schedule for your follow-up visits with our surgeon. It is best to arrange for a driver after surgery as you may be drowsy and numb in certain areas.

You will notice the difference in your figure right away, and the results will continue to improve as you heal. The healing process depends on which area of the body was treated, but in general our patients are able to return to work within a few days. Vigorous exercise and physical activities will be restricted for some time and you may wear surgical garments for a few days to aid in the healing process and skin-tightening effects of SmartLipo surgery.
