Toronto Cosmetic Clinic is proud to announce the arrival of Smartlipo™, deemed the least invasive method of liposuction in cosmetic/plastic surgery today. The newest advancement in liposuction technology has finally made its way to Canada, offered first this side of the border at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic.
Smartlipo™ utilizes the Smartlipo™ LaserBodySculpting Workstation manufactured by Cynosure, an American company that produces laser and light-based source equipment for the health industry. The device was approved by the FDA in November 2006 as a form of laser assisted liposuction and has received a staggering amount of press coverage for its remarkable ability to eliminate fat on the body.
How It Works
Smartlipo™ is a new type of laser assisted liposuction.
The Smartlipo™ LaserBodySculpting Workstation delivers a 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser fibre through a cannula. The cannula, smaller than the one used for traditional liposuction procedures, is inserted into the areas of the body that are targeted for fat removal. When the laser comes into contact with the undesirable subcutaneous fat, it ruptures the fat and coagulates tissue as well as blood vessels in the area. This results in a tightening of the tissue and a reduction in bleeding, bruising, and swelling.
Why It's Better
Some of the most important reasons why Smartlipo™ laser assisted liposuction is better?
Traditional forms of liposuction treating larger areas of the body typically require general anesthesia. However, since Smartlipo™ minimizes trauma to the area treated, general or even local anesthesia can be used. Plus, any incisions made are much smaller because of the size of the cannula used, requiring no stitches. As a result, scars are less noticeable.
After the procedure patients experience far less pain than other forms of liposuction. There is usually no bleeding and bruising that typically accompanies recovery. Because of the relative ease of recovery after Smartlipo™, patients can return to sedentary work within a day.
Where once other forms of liposuction left skin hanging in its wake, Smartlipo™ tightens the skin in the treated area.
Men and women in Australia, Japan, Germany, the U.S. and many other countries around the world have taken advantage of the extraordinary results achieved with this procedure.
