Smartlipo™ is a minimally invasive approach to liposuction that uses laser technology to reshape your body’s contour. The procedure breaks up fat cells to improve trouble-spots, with limited effect on the surrounding tissue.
Dr. Susan Kaweski uses Smart Lipo to help San Diego and La Mesa patients get the results that they’ve been wanting, even when diet and exercise may not have worked. The procedure can provide significant improvement in a single treatment session and offers a faster recovery time than the traditional approach to liposuction.
Dr. Kaweski’s use of Smart Lipo represents her commitment to giving patients the best experience possible. Beyond her application of advanced technology that improves comfort, patients choose Dr. Kaweski because of her extensive experience in plastic surgery and her professional approach. She prioritizes patient care and safety, and she takes time during procedures to create the most aesthetically pleasing results possible.
Getting Started with Smart Lipo
Begin with an initial consultation at Aesthetic Arts Institute. You’ll have the opportunity to meet our medical and administrative team and learn how they will support your experience. Our staff makes every effort to make you feel comfortable and confident in your care; if you have questions or concerns, you’ll find them responsive, accessible, and an informed source.
During your visit, Dr. Kaweski will talk with you about what you want to accomplish with liposuction. You’ll take part in a brief examination and offer a medical history, which will help ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Dr. Kaweski can help San Diego and La Mesa patients slim down a variety of areas with Smart Lipo, including:
- Hips, thighs, and buttocks.
- Inner knees, calves, and ankles.
- Waistline and abdomen.
- Breasts, chest and back.
- Upper arms.
- Neck and jawline.
The Benefits of Smart Lipo
Dr. Kaweski offers her San Diego and La Mesa patients Smart Lipo because of the advantages it provides:
- Since the technology liquefies fat, everything she needs to do in the procedure is more limited: smaller incisions, a smaller liposuction cannula, and smaller movements. This translates to an easier and more comfortable recovery.
- The laser allows Dr. Kaweski to sculpt the tissue for a smooth and attractive body contour.
- Removing fat in traditional liposuction can leave behind excess skin. Smart Lipo can tighten skin tissues in the areas Dr. Kaweski is treating.
Smart Lipo, manufactured by Cynosure, has been FDA-approved since November 2006 and in use in Europe for years.
Your Experience with Smart Lipo
Dr. Kaweski performs procedures at La Mesa Surgical Center under general anesthesia. During surgery, she makes small incisions and uses the Smart Lipo technology to target and liquefy unwanted areas of fat. She then removes the fat using a thin suctioning tube called a cannula. Her approach leaves behind a smooth contour that should complement your body’s other features. In addition, the laser technology will tighten the skin envelope by stimulating collagen production.
Recovery from Smart Lipo can take up to 14 days, during which time Dr. Kaweski recommends that you wear your compression garment and avoid strenuous activity to decrease swelling. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, the recovery time is typically less than traditional liposuction, and there is only limited scarring.
Once you’ve fully healed, you should notice a significant change in the treated area. The features you’ve targeted should appear slimmer and tighter, and the procedure should have permanently eliminated stubborn pockets of fat from the area.
