Houston SmartLipo takes regular liposuction a step further when it comes to the benefits it offers to men and women who are looking to remove stubborn fat on their abdomen, thighs, arms, back, etc. When you have decided that you want to turn to Houston cosmetic surgery to achieve your perfect body, you will likely consider this laser liposuction technique.

The first thing to do when considering SmartLipo is look at its costs, risks, and results. It is usually more expensive than traditional liposuction but the risks can be the same. For example, an experienced surgeon is needed and the patient must follow the recovery plan the surgeon gives them to prevent dimpling, numbing, scarring, sagging skin, and infection.

Many men and women choose laser liposuction because it takes less time to heal. This may be a major obstacle with traditional liposuction for those who work and take care of children. It can take up to three months to fully heal with SmartLipo but many patients say it only felt like they did a lot of sit ups and the pain killers helped take away any pain. In fact, many are able to go to work after only a couple of days off. Traditional liposuction often requires two weeks off of work to recover.

Depending on what part of the body the patient is getting SmartLipo, they can stay awake throughout the procedure. For example, somebody who is getting laser liposuction on their abdomen can have a cloth draped so they do not see the work being done but they can stand up to ensure the area is even during surgery. Procedure time varies on the area the cosmetic surgeon is working on but it can average to be about an hour.

To find out if you are a good candidate for SmartLipo, visit a plastic surgeon to go over the procedure, your medical history, and the cost of the procedure. The plastic surgeon can thoroughly go over what to expect after the surgery to see if it will meet your needs.
