How Does Smartlipo Work?

The Origin Of Liposuction

Decades ago people dreamed about connecting yourself to a vacuum cleaner and just sucking out the extra fat. Then, In 1974, Dr. Giorgio Fischer of Italy invented the first liposuction. The dream became a reality. Back then, though. there were two problems. Electrolytes and extra skin.

Tumescent Liposuction

The first problem was that you took out electrolytes like sodium and potassium as well as the fat. We all know from sweating with exercise how that can make you feel. This problem was solved in 1985 with Dr. Jeffrey Klein's advance called tumescent liposuction. You infused a saline-like solution that put in extra electrolytes before the suction and also decreased the bleeding to almost nothing. This was a huge step forward. It allowed the safe limits of fat removal quoted my many experts to raise to 5 Liters. That is equivalent to the size of 2 1/2 two liter bottles of soda. A LOT of fat!

Ultrasonic Liposuction

There was still another problem left though. When a balloon is full, it is tight and smooth. When you empty the balloon, it gets rippled. We were able to remove so much fat that the skin frequently became wavy. Several attempts were made to solve this problem with technologies like ultrasonic lipo. Ultrasonic liposuction was somewhat helpful but had its own problems, making it a poor choice.

Laser Lipo

Finally, a technology was developed that really helped, laser liposuction. Lasering the inside of the skin after removing the fat helps it contract. The problem with early laser lipo was that it was so effective it was difficult to control. Too much of a good thing could be a bad thing.

Smartlipo MPX and Triplex

Smartlipo MPX is a huge advance. First, MPX stands for multiplex. Originally two frequencies of laser and now three, This combines multiple frequencies of laser light that best target the skin ad fat. It helps the procedure to go faster and be more effective. The other advance was the Thermoguide. This actually measures the effect on the tissue at the tip of the cannula and can be set to limit the laser. When the right temperature is reached, the machine can actually shut itself off. This is a tremendous advance in safety.

The Smartlipo MPX Result

You can now accomplish more than ever before with this minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is short, there is very little discomfort and you can be back to almost everything in a few days.

Having Smartlipo

If you would like to lose that fat that dieting just won't solve, Smartlipo could be the answer for you. The first step is a free consultation with Dr. Studin. After looking at your problem areas, Dr. Studin will explain what the possible choices are for you and what you can expect to accomplish. Once you agree on a plan, the procedure can be scheduled. If you are having Smartlipo awake, then you will meet with Dr. Studin and the nursing staff for both oral and local anesthesia beforehand. If you elect to be sleeping, a board-sertified anesthesiologist will meet with you. The anesthesia used for Smartlipo if you are asleep is similar to the type used for colonoscopy. It is rapid in onset and you wake up very quickly. Nausea is very rare.

Once the procedure is finished you will go home in a compressive garment. This is only worn a few days with Smartlipo. There may be some black and blue but is is less likely than with traditional lipo. Pain is almost always minimal. Most people are back to almost everything in just a few days.

The results are seem immediately. You will look smaller than you did before the very same day. Like with any procedure there is some swelling so as this disappears you will look smaller still. Skin contraction can continue to improve with Smartlipo for over a year!
