Dr. Fretta offers a number of treatments for weight loss, and body contouring. His Smart Lipo procedures offer effective results with minimal down time for body sculpting, skin tightening of the body or face, and fat reduction.
What is Smart Lipo
SmartLIPO is a type of laser liposuction whereby a laser fiber is used to help melt away fat, making it easier to suction the fat away and providing smoother looking skin. The gentle heat of the laser offers the added benefit of tightened skin. SmartLIPO can be used on any area of the body including very small areas such as knees, ankles, armpit fat and under the chin.
Does SmartLipo help with weight loss?
SmartLipo is not a procedure for weight loss. Instead, it is meant for spot reduction and contouring.
Does the procedure hurt?
The process is painless, since patients are given anesthesia before the surgery. Some patients report very mild aches after the procedure; these may feel similar to post-workout soreness.
What Results can be Expected
SmartLIPO laser liposuction destroys and removes fat cells, leaving you with fewer fat cells in the treated areas. Those fat cells will be prone to becoming filled with more fat if you continue to gain excessive weight. It is recommended to start a fitness and healthy eating routine after the procedure.
How many treatments are needed?
SmartLIPO laser liposuction, results are achieved in one procedure. This eliminates repeat procedures (as can happen with traditional liposuction- or Coolsculpting), resulting in a beautifully sculpted body the very first time.
How long is Recovery?
There is minimal down time with smartLIPO . Depending on the extent of sculpting it is typically very brief. Most patients can return to their normal routine in about two days.
