Liposuction San Antonio
Radiance San Antonio was one of the first in the country to have the Smartlipo MPX™ system, which provides patients precise body contouring with less downtime and discomfort. Dr. Laura Bennack has been using the Smartlipo laser lipolysis for more than 11 years and done nearly a thousand cases.
Are you looking for advanced liposuction?
Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting, also known as laser lipolysis is a cosmetic procedure that uses the latest advancements in technology and is one of the most sought after procedures. During the procedure, we use powerful and precise laser energy to heat up and liquefy fat cells in the treatment area. This makes removing the fat via our specialized suction device a much faster and more comfortable process.
How does Smartlipo work?
Literally melting fat, laser-assisted lipolysis is performed at Radiance with a local anesthetic and occasionally a mild sedative if desired. Smartlipo uses a laser and a cannula (1 mm tube) to apply heat directly to the problem fat. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they don’t come back unless there is a large weight gain. Therefore, a typical treatment is a one-time procedure.
Smartlipo provides surgeons with:
- Greater control
- Reduced side effects
- Faster healing and recovery
- Improved Skin tightening
Smartlipo can treat fat virtually anywhere including:
- Knees & thighs
- Hips & waist
- Abdomen, torso & back
- Arms, neck
One of the greatest benefits of Smartlipo is its short recovery period. This period is often as short as 24 hours. There may be bruising and swelling lasting longer. The incisions used are incredibly small and the laser reduces damage to surrounding tissue. There is no hospital stay and the treatment can vary from one hour to 6 hours.
Who Can Undergo SmartLipo?
A good candidate for this treatment is a man or a woman who has an undesirable accumulation of fat in different parts of his/her body. Typically, the fat does not respond even to exercise or a healthy diet. Also, it is crucial that such patients be in good physical health and not have any health-related issues, which could make the process of fat removal a possible health hazard.
It is important to note that Smartlipo is not considered a weight-loss procedure. While you may experience some reduction in weight from the fat removal process, the procedure is geared primarily to help those who are suffering from stubborn fat. We’ll perform an initial examination of your body and has you about your medical history to help determine if Smartlipo is the best choice for you.
How Much Does SmartLipo Cost?
The cost of a Smartlipo treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the individual needs and goals. Factors we take into consideration are the area(s) we’ll treat and the amount of fat removal necessary to achieve the desired look. Our team will develop a personalized treatment plan to address your unique cosmetic concerns and then discuss the associated cost of the procedure.
