SmartLipo in Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada
What is SmartLipoTM?
SmartLipo is a type of laser assisted liposuction. It is different from regular liposuction in that fat cells are instantly liquefied by the laser, making them easier to remove. This allows Dr. Murphy to use a much smaller cannula to suction out the unwanted fat, resulting in smaller incisions.
Laser assisted liposuction allows for a less invasive procedure overall compared to regular liposuction. SmartLipo significantly lessens any post-operative pain. After liposuction, patients must wear compression garments, but the amount of time these special garments must be worn is reduced with SmartLipo.
Dr. Murphy is fully certified and experienced in the SmartLipo process. Pioneered in Europe, SmartLipo was approved by the FDA in November of 2006.
Is SmartLipo Right for You?
Many people are good candidates for laser assisted liposuction, however it should not be seen as a weight loss method. In general, you may be a good candidate for SmartLipo if you:
- Have one or more areas of local body fat deposits that have responded poorly to diet and exercise
- Are bothered by these fatty areas, and motivated to get rid of them permanently
- Are in good health
- Exercise regularly
- Are within 25 lbs. of your ideal weight
