The SmartLipo is among the leading laser liposuction procedures available in the United States, and Cynosure, the makers of SmartLipo, have developed the innovative SmartLipo Triplex laser body sculpting system, that helps to tighten and tone the skin, and can also get rid of localized fat deposits.

New Laser Lipo Technology Promises One Hour Procedure

Laser liposuction continues to be one of the most sought-after procedures in body contouring and permanent fat removal, but some plastic surgeons have taken the procedure one step further by using a special technique that cuts down on surgery time. Plastic and cosmetic surgeons across the country are promoting the “one hour liposuction” procedure that promises patients they can lose an entire dress size in just one hour and be back to work the next day.

Dr. Ahn Ngo, the medical director of Final Inches, is one of several surgeons to promote the procedure. According to Ngo, the minimally invasive fat removal procedure is done under local anesthesia in an office setting. “The laser stimulates heat in the area, which stimulates collagen production.” (Source: ABCLocal)

Laser Liposuction Deemed Safer than Traditional Procedures

Laser liposuction is among the most innovative techniques available for individuals undergoing permanent fat removal procedure.

Laser-assisted liposuction helps to remove excess fat and tightens up the skin during the process, allowing for more precise body contouring and minimal downtime. Experts say that it is generally safer than traditional procedures and is a versatile option because it can be performed on the abdomen, buttocks, waist, hips and flanks. In addition to serving as a first-time procedure, laser liposuction can be performed on people who have loose skin from a traditional liposuction procedure to provide a much better silhouette.
