Kansas City Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction
Dr. Carroll Zahorsky introduced Smartlipo® laser liposuction to the Kansas City area when the procedure was first approved by the FDA several years ago. A gentler, less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo® is performed with a local anesthetic and causes less trauma to surrounding tissue, so patients enjoy a faster recovery.
At Ré Surgence, our Kansas City laser liposuction center, Smartlipo® uses a small, high-powered laser to sculpt the area being treated in a gentle and controlled manner, melting the fat inside the fat cells while coagulating blood vessels. The melted fat can be drawn out using a smaller (1mm) cannula than that used in traditional liposuction, resulting in a gentler treatment. The laser wavelength also causes the collagen in the skin to contract, smoothing and tightening it, so additional surgeries to remove excess skin are often unnecessary. Smartlipo® may be used alone to deliver pinpointed treatment to smaller problem areas, or it can be combined with other types of liposuction solutions available at our Kansas City Smart Lipo® center to treat larger areas.
Benefits of Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction at our Kansas City Smartlipo® clinic
- Dr. Zahorsky is a highly experienced physician who has built his reputation on providing personal, compassionate patient care and delivering excellent results.
- In Smartlipo®, fat is liquefied before it is removed. This reduces trauma during the procedure, so there is less bruising and swelling and a faster recovery than with traditional liposuction.
- Smartlipo® laser liposuction not only removes unwanted fat – it tightens the skin in the areas treated, so patients at our Kansas City laser liposuction center often avoid additional procedures to remove excess skin.
- Smartlipo® can be done alone or in combination with other liposuction procedures to treat larger areas where appropriate.
Who is a good candidate for Kansas City Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction?
If you are generally in good health and are slightly to moderately overweight, treatment with Smartlipo® laser liposuction may help you shed unwanted fat in targeted areas. At our Kansas City laser liposuction clinic, Dr. Zahorsky offers free initial consultations to help you determine if Smartlipo® can help you reach your goals.
Bear in mind that Smartlipo® does not remove large volumes of fat, and is most appropriate for smaller, hard-to-reach fat deposits. If your goal is more substantial weight loss, Smartlipo® can be used together with VASER Lipo or traditional liposuction may be best. Our Kansas City Smart Lipo® center provides a free consultation to new patients, so you can find out which treatment is best for you with no obligation.
Kansas City Smart Lipo® Procedure and Recovery
At our Kansas City laser liposuction center, Smart Lipo® has several advantages over traditional liposuction. First, recovery is generally faster, usually only a few days compared with a week or more for liposuction. And, because Smart Lipo® is a gentler procedure, it causes less bruising and bleeding. Finally, Smart Lipo® results in a firmer skin tone in the treated areas, which means that follow-up surgery to remove excess skin is often unnecessary. Simply put, Smart Lipo® delivers better results and faster recovery than traditional liposuction.
