For those looking for something other than traditional liposuction in Baltimore, there are many alternatives available. I use a method of laser-assisted liposuction known as Smartlipo MPX™ to tighten the skin while removing frustrating fat deposits. This state-of-the-art body contouring technique is a less invasive approach to traditional tumescent liposuction and sculpts beautiful results with minimal downtime.
Smartlipo MPX vs. Tumescent Liposuction
Although both Smartlipo MPX and tumescent liposuction are used to remove unwanted fat, they are very different procedures. Unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo MPX uses laser technology to help liquefy fat cells before they are removed. This laser energy provides Smartlipo with several benefits, including:
- Gentler, more effective fat removal
- Reduced bleeding and less recovery time
- Smaller incisions
- Tighter skin and better body contours
Smartlipo can usually be performed under local anesthesia, thereby reducing the risks associated with general anesthesia. The procedure generally takes between 1 to 2 hours and can treat almost any area of the body. After surgery, most people can return to work in just 2 to 3 days.
Laser-assisted liposuction can assist with fat removal for several different types of procedures. I often use Smartlipo during breast reduction, tummy tuck, or neck lift surgery. Smartlipo can also enhance the results of tumescent liposuction or be used during a “Mommy Makeover” for body contouring benefits.
