What occurs during the Smartlipo procedure?
Numbing fluid is delivered to the treatment area through very small incisions. The laser energy works to liquefy fatty tissue, which is extracted with liposuction. To perform this procedure, Dr. Khalifeh makes a small incision in the skin and the laser energy emitted through a thin laser fiber is activated to liquify the fat. Dr. Khalifeh points the laser at the skin tissues, to foster natural collagen production. The laser energy on the skin tissue has the added benefit of tightening the skin after the fat extraction to create a sculpted, smooth body contour.
