Body Sculpting Q & A

What is non-surgical body sculpting?

Eating well and exercising regularly are crucial to maintaining a lean, fit physique. When you lose weight naturally, your fat cells shrink but never completely leave your body. This results in stubborn lumps and pockets of fat that are notoriously difficult to get rid of.

Dr. Kadze offers SmartLipo body sculpting, a laser liposuction treatment that permanently removes unwanted body fat without surgery or large incisions. This means you can enjoy the firm, sculpted figure you desire without scars, anesthesia, or an extended recovery time.

What are the benefits of SmartLipo over traditional liposuction?

SmartLipo is the original laser liposuction treatment, making it the most widely used and studied system of its type to this day. Throughout a decade of studies, SmartLipo repeatedly produces the following advantages over traditional liposuction:

  • Less pain
  • Less bruising
  • Less swelling
  • Faster recovery time

Who is a good candidate for SmartLipo?

If you have mild to moderate amounts of excess fat and saggy skin that don’t respond to diet and exercise, SmartLipo may be right for you. Laser lipo can help reduce fat and improve skin firmness in the following areas:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen and love handles
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Face and neck
  • Back

Body sculpting isn’t a treatment for obesity. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, Dr. Kadze may suggest holding off on this procedure until that’s managed.

What should I expect from a laser lipo treatment?

Dr. Kadze offers laser liposuction treatments right in her office, so no hospitalization is necessary. First, she gives you local anesthesia to numb the treatment area and improve your comfort throughout the procedure.

Then, she inserts the SmartLipo laser probe directly into the targeted fat deposit. The laser emits energy that destroys your fat cells without harming any other tissues in your body.

The amount of time it takes depends on the size of the treatment area, but most laser lipo sessions take Dr. Kadze less than an hour.

Recovery after treatment is much shorter and more comfortable than with traditional liposuction, but you may still want to take a couple of days off work while your body heals. SmartLipo may produce minor to moderate swelling, bruising, or discomfort that disappears a couple of days after the procedure.
