Turkle & Associates Cosmetic Surgeons in Indianapolis, Indiana
Inherited traits often prevent people from achieving their desired body shape. Even years of exercise may not yield significant or noticeable results in certain people. For many, the answer is SmartLipo. SmartLipo is a laser assisted liposuction procedure that extracts fat from specific areas of the body, including the face, neck, stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and calves. A local anesthetic is used. Following the SmartLipo procedure at our Indianapolis practice, patients can expect a slimmer, shapelier figure.
The best candidates for SmartLipo are those patients who have areas of fat deposits with good skin tone. This allows the treated areas to "snap back," or re-contour, after the fat is removed. Those with pre-existing skin laxity may require other procedures instead of SmartLipo, like a tummy tuck, to remove the skin and excess fat.
After SmartLipo Surgery
Following SmartLipo surgery at our Indianapolis practice, an elastic bandage is applied in order to reduce swelling. Patients return to work after a few days. A return to full activities can be expected within two weeks. Temporary numbness to the treated areas will resolve over several weeks.
You will be able to see your new figure soon after surgery and swelling and bruising will resolve within a few weeks of the SmartLipo procedure.
