The Rejuvenation Center was the first center in West Virginia to introduce SmartLipo™, a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. We have performed more procedures than any center in the region. Additionally, we were chosen to be a training center for physicians to learn the SmartLipo™ technique.
SmartLipo™ utilizes lasers for safer, less invasive, and more effective fat cell removal. The laser used with SmartLipo™ rapidly dissolves the fat being targeted and, at the same time, may tighten the surrounding skin. The procedure is performed in our office and does not require the use of a general anesthesia or stitches.
Request a free consultation to learn more about SmartLipo™ for Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio patients, or give us a call at 304-242-BODY (2639). The Rejuvenation Center is pleased to offer the latest techniques in body sculpting treatments.
SmartLipo™ is an excellent technique for removing fat from localized -areas that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. The ideal patient is one who is in good health and not obese. This procedure is intended for body contouring and not intended for extensive weight loss. SmartLipo™ is not suitable for individuals with certain health problems or who are insulin-dependent diabetics.
The most popular areas for SmartLipo™ treatment include the abdomen, love handles and waist, inner or outer thighs, upper arms, male breasts and pubic mound.
Prior to the treatment session, our physician will mark the targeted areas that bother you and a local anesthetic will be used to numb the area. The laser breaks up and liquefies the fat cells for easier fat removal. This laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding and swelling. SmartLipo™ also stimulates collagen production in the skin, leading to a more youthful appearance in the treated area. A typical session takes about 2-3 hours, depending on the area or areas treated.
After the treatment, you can expect minimal pain and/or bruising. A pressure dressing or a compression garment, used to decrease swelling, may be required depending on the location of the treated area. Any bruising should disappear within a few days, and your normal routine can be resumed within 24 hours. Although we recommend resting for a day or two, many patients are able to return to their normal activities right away.
Results should be seen immediately, with improvement continuing over the next several months. Soon after the procedure, the treated area will appear tighter, compact, and less prominent. Within the next several weeks, the skin and surrounding area will remodel and adjust to form newly improved body contours. The remodeling is a gradual process and the peak results are seen after 3 months.
SmartLipo™ patients typically experience only minimal discomfort during and following the procedure because it is a less invasive procedure compared to traditional liposuction. The majority of patients can return to work in 24 hours. Additionally, SmartLipo™ leave behind tighter, more youthful-looking skin.
