Is it safe in all the persons who undergo this procedure?
The ideal candidates who can undergo SmartLipo for fat reduction are those who satisfy the following criteria:
– Persons who have excess fat and who tried other fat reduction methods like modification of diet and exercises are the best candidates for this laser liposuction method of SmartLipo
– Only those who wish to lose small amounts of fat or up to 8 pounds are considered eligible. This is because unlike the conventional liposuction, only a thin laser probe is introduced in to the treatment site and the laser passed liquefies the fat. The liquefied fat is absorbed in to the blood vessels and lymphatics and they get excreted. So only a limited amount of fat can be liquefied and excreted by this method. In a few centers, doctors also suck out the liquefied fat for better results.
– The persons who undergo this procedure should be in good health, not very obese, leading an active life style
– Persons who want to get rid of only local pockets of excess fat are eligible for this procedure. The areas where SmartLipo is usually done are waist, chin, inner and outer thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, face except around the eyes, back of the neck and pubic mound.
The candidates who are very obese and who want to remove fat more than 8 pounds are not eligible for this procedure. Similarly those who are not in good health and suffering from diabetes, liver disease, kidney and heart disease are not eligible for SmartLipo
