Would you like a noninvasive way to eliminate exercise-resistant fat? Many people are hesitant to discuss trouble areas because they may require cosmetic surgery. At Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery, we offer body contouring in the form of SmartLipo treatment. This groundbreaking technology offers faster results for people who want a more defined silhouette with a minimally invasive technique. Best of all, SmartLipo encourages natural collagen production to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
When investing in body contouring with SmartLipo, most people want to know what kind of results to expect. Are SmartLipo results permanent and can I get pregnant after? Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence addresses these questions and more here at our friendly facility. To learn more or to schedule your SmartLipo consultation, contact our office in Atlanta, GA. Our experience and artistic skill will ensure you receive the best results possible.
Who is a candidate for SmartLipo?
If you are unhappy with the contours of your body and are in good general health, then you are likely an ideal candidate for SmartLipo. SmartLipo is an FDA-approved method of fat removal that is widely used by physicians across the nation. This technology uses laser energy to liquefy tissue before being suctioned out with a cannula. Since the liquefied fat is easier to remove, there is less damage to the surrounding area.
During your consultation with Dr. Lawrence, we can help you decide whether traditional or SmartLipo is the right option to meet your cosmetic goals. SmartLipo was specifically designed to eliminate fat cells and encourage collagen production for skin tightening results. It is also a great option for patients who want to treat small areas of local fat without the need for large incisions or general anesthesia. This allows individuals to recover safely at home with less downtime.
Can I get pregnant after SmartLipo?
Many women are concerned that future pregnancies will interfere with the final results of their SmartLipo procedure. During your appointment at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery, we can give you helpful information and resources about getting pregnant after lipo. As long as you lose the weight you gain during pregnancy, you should be able to return to your post-SmartLipo outcome. Keep in mind that pregnancy may still cause side effects such as sagging abdominal skin or stretch marks. This may require additional cosmetic procedures to regain the appearance you desire.
Are SmartLipo results permanent?
At our facility in Atlanta, GA, patients want to know if SmartLipo results permanent. The answer is yes! It is a common myth that the fat removed by liposuction can grow back in other areas after the procedure. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. Of course, patients should realize that no plastic surgery can stop the aging process. Even though natural aging will continue to produce changes in the body, the benefits of SmartLipo will always be apparent.
If you are worried about weight gain after lipo, minor losses or gains should not noticeably change the treated area. Patients should remain sculpted and slim as long as they remain close to their goal weight. On the other hand, significant weight gain after lipo can cause the remaining fat cells to grow. To achieve the best possible results for years to come, Dr. Lawrence suggests patients maintain their post-operative weight with a regular diet and exercise program. The staff at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery can offer some expert recommendations and advice to help you keep the extra pounds away.
