Determining Your Candidacy
During your pre-op consultation, you should discuss your cosmetic goals and desires with your surgeon. They will evaluate your body fat areas and recommend whether you are a fit candidate for SmartLipo laser liposuction, or if a traditional liposuction surgery might be more appropriate for your needs.
If you have significant amount of loose skin in the affected areas, your surgeon may suggest an additional skin tightening or body lift procedure along with SmartLipo. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Jones will make sure that you are able to make an informed choice based on your anatomical and personal cosmetic needs.
