They offer minimally invasive Smartlipo® treatment at the office that helps get rid of unwanted fat almost immediately. If you’d like more information about Smartlipo, call the office or book a consultation online.
Smartlipo is a minimally invasive lipolysis treatment that uses advanced technology to help get rid of unwanted body fat. It’s similar to liposuction, but there’s no need for general anesthesia, and the procedure is done at the Nature Coast Healthcare Center office.
Smartlipo uses laser technology to liquefy your fat and then suction it out with a special tool. The treatment not only liquifies your fat, but also stimulates your body’s production of collagen, an important protein that gives your skin structure, to help tighten the skin once the fat is gone.
Good candidates for Smartlipo should be in good health and close to their ideal body weight.
As a less invasive treatment than traditional liposuction, Smartlipo may be an option for more people. It’s not meant to serve as a means to help you lose significant amounts of weight. Instead, it shapes your body into a more aesthetically pleasing form.
Smartlipo technology works best on stubborn fat found on your stomach, buttocks, arms, neck, and thighs.
To ease any discomfort, a local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area. Then, the Smartlipo specialist at Nature Coast Healthcare Center inserts the laser fiber through a small tube into your problem area. You may feel some tugging and pulling as the laser and suction work on your fat.
The laser heats and liquefies the fat, and then it’s gently suctioned out of your body. The whole process takes up to two hours, depending on the number of areas being treated.
You may experience some bruising and swelling following treatment, but this is temporary. The team at Nature Coast Healthcare Center recommends you take it easy for a day or two following treatment to allow your body to heal.
It may take up to a week for you to see the improvement in your appearance, but the improvements continue for up to six months.
Once the fat has been zapped and sucked away, it never comes back. To help maintain good results, eat a healthy, balanced diet and get regular exercise.
