Sculpting a New You With SmartLipo

Healthy living and fitness magazines display covers of muscled and toned bodies with headlines surrounding each chiseled edge, promising you the secret if you follow these steps. Trimming and toning our bodies is the second step in your weight loss plan, but it’s not guaranteed you’ll achieve this look through a strict diet and cardio classes alone. One thing you should understand—if you’re hoping to get to this point—is that it takes a lot of hard work and there are some things you just cannot control, such as inherited traits.

We’re not all made to look like fitness models and it helps to be realistic, but if you’ve put in the hours of maintenance and only have a few inches here or there to reduce, we can help you there. When you’ve taken all the necessary steps to achieve weight loss and a toned body naturally, sculpting a new you with SmartLipo may be the best option at SoCal Body Sculpt.

How is SmartLipo performed?

There are two methods used to get rid of fat cells without invasive surgery—by freezing or heating it. Fat cells respond to both extreme types of temperatures that will either crystallize the cells or melt them down into a digestible form. Through a series of studies, Dr. Nilesh Bhoot decided that heating the fat and melting the cells had benefits that cryolipolysis did not—thermal tightening of mild loose skin. SmartLipo is one of the best minimally invasive fat reduction, body sculpting and toning procedures in the industry and one our patients love at SoCal Body Sculpt.

Areas SmartLipo Treats:

Dr. Bhoot performs SmartLipo using local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. The next step is to insert a laser threaded cannula into the skin through a small hole (not a large incision, so there’s no scar). The heat emitted by the laser cannula melts and destroys fat cells and they are suctioned from the body; any remaining fat cells are naturally metabolized. We mentioned that SmartLipo tightens your tissues as heat is applied under the skin which restructures inactive and damaged collagen. Dr. Bhoot will cover the needlepoint entry of the cannula with a bandage and you’re all set. SmartLipo is a one-time treatment that degrades fat and tightens the skin.

Who makes an ideal candidate?

Like every treatment or procedure, there are ideal candidates for SmartLipo. Because SmartLipo is not considered a weight loss method, but one that reduces fatty tissues to sculpt the body, if you’re within 25 pounds of a healthy weight then this may be the best option. Dr. Bhoot recommends those that receive SmartLipo do not smoke or drink and are healthy for the best results.

How does SmartLipo differ from liposuction?

SmartLipo differs from Liposuction in many ways, but the first is that it’s nonsurgical and offers a quick recovery that liposuction will not. SmartLipo removes fat from the body completely where liposuction only sucks fat from the cell, leaving the membrane behind so fat can repopulate the area if you’re not careful with a dedicated diet plan. Also during a liposuction procedure, general anesthesia is used which can increase risk for the surgery.

If you’re at a point in your life where you want to see some definition in your body using a minimally invasive treatment, call SoCal Body Sculpt today at (818) 495-2441 to schedule your SmartLipo appointment.
