18 Jul SculpSure vs. Tumescent Liposuction or SmartLipo
In the past, traditional liposuction was the only way to get rid of unwanted fat. Technological advances in the medical industry have offered numerous variations of liposuction. If you have small pockets of fat that you have tried unsuccessfully to remove, the plastic surgery field offers many options. This article takes a look at three methods: SculpSure, tumescent liposuction, and SmartLipo.
What is SculpSure?
Dr. Park offers SculpSure, which is an FDA-approved laser treatment. It works by using light-based technology to remove fat from the abdomen, thighs, and back. Many patients see a fat reduction of up to 24% within 12 weeks.
Each treatment takes just 25 minutes. It’s non-invasive and requires no downtime, making it a quick and easy way to target problem areas.
What is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is different from other types of liposuction in that the anesthesia is injected into the fat. This makes the area firm and swollen. No other form of anesthesia is needed, making this safer than traditional liposuction, which requires IVs and sedation. This reduces the risk of surgical bleeding.
What is SmartLipo?
Like SculpSure, Smart Lipo uses lasers to jumpstart the fat removal process. The energy from these lasers melts away the fat. While it’s not a weight loss method, it does tighten skin in the process to help slim down your abdomen, back, and thighs.
This minimally invasive procedure does require small incisions in the treatment area so that the laser can enter the tissue. No stitches are required, but a few days of recovery are necessary.
