Smart Lipo Newark
Smartlipo MPX Laser Body Sculpting
Smartlipo MPX, a minimally invasive laser assisted lipolysis/body contouring procedure, is one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures performed today. It is performed in the office setting under local anesthesia with oral premedication. This office procedure has a shorter recovery, less risks and less postop discomfort compared to conventional liposuction. Smartlipo has been shown to improve overall body shape, permanently destroy fat cells (50-75% fat reduction compared to 20-24% fat reduction with noninvasive devices such as Coolsculpting) and tighten skin (17% more compared to conventional liposuction).
Frequently asked questions
How does Smartlipo MPX work?
This minimally invasive lipolysis procedure is performed using a tiny 1 mm cannula inserted into the skin. The laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy using 2 different wavelengths directly to fat cells causing them to rupture and drain away as a liquid.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Smartlipo MPX is ideal for fat removal of fat from the abdomen, love handles, bra fat, saddle bags, banana rolls or inner/outer thighs or areas of skin laxity in the neck and arms.
What are the advantages of Smartlipo MPX over conventional liposuction procedures?
Both treatments effectively remove fat (up to 50-75% fat reduction), but conventional liposuction sometimes leave behind more visible small pockets of skin. The Smartlipo MPX wavelengths have been shown to increase collagen and reorganize collagen fibers to tighten and improve quality of your skin.
Is there a recovery period?
Smartlipo MPX is an office based minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia with some oral premedication. Some light trauma will occur, but you will be able to return to work in a couple of days and back to the gym in about one week.
Am I a candidate?
Smartlipo MPX is designed for removing unwanted fat and tightening of the skin. The ideal candidate is in good health and normal body weight. This procedure can dramatically improve contour in many areas of the body when focusing on treating one to two areas at one time.
