Awake liposuction is an innovative cosmetic surgery procedure for people desiring slimmer and more proportionate body contours but without undergoing general anesthesia and highly invasive surgery.
Awake liposuction does not involve the risks typically associated with general anesthesia or a highly invasive surgery, and only has minor and transient side effects.
After this procedure, the resulting downtime and discomfort are minimal. Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, provides SmartLipo (Awake Liposuction) to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities.
What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is an advanced laser assisted system of lipolysis which helps the patient accomplish skin tightening as well as a fat reduction in a less invasive way. The SmartLipo system is developed to make the underlying loose tissue tighter and break down undesirable fat cells by delivering precise laser energy.
Experienced surgeons are now making use of this technology as a supplement to liposuction plastic surgery with an aim to reduce the invasiveness of the procedure and deliver better outcomes. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones recommends SmartLipo to appropriate candidates.
Traditional liposuction plastic surgery is designed to excise localized fatty deposits surgically from various parts of the face and body. SmartLipo supports this process as it is a laser assisted technique which allows it to target blood vessels reliably and help the patient achieve excellent results with less discomfort and pain.
Laser assisted lipolysis treatment, SmartLipo, can remove stubborn fat deposits permanently from problems areas such as the buttocks, abdomen, arms, thighs, and neck. This procedure does not require the use of general anesthesia as traditional liposuction does.
A local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment site. The patient remains conscious throughout the procedure and can achieve desired body contouring with negligible discomfort. The surgeon will place the laser fiber through a narrow tube into the treatment area.
The laser delivers heat which breaks down the fat cell membranes liquefying the fat. This can now be suctioned out with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
The surgeon will use various laser wavelengths stimulating fresh collagen fibers as well. This will slowly enhance the skin elasticity and volume while producing sleeker body contours. The patient can receive SmartLipo as an in-office treatment, and the procedure will involve minimal downtime and scarring.
