Every time you turn on the television, go on the internet or read a magazine, you see articles about how overweight the American public is. You also see articles that talk about the steps that people are taking to lose weight. Billions of dollars are spent every single year in this endeavor.
It makes sense that people want to lose weight. For all of the talk about political correctness and loving people the way they are, modern society tends to have a real aversion to individuals who are overweight. It is unfortunate and unfair, but it is also the harsh reality of life.
What makes this even worse is that, thanks to the internet, the bullying and teasing that all of these individuals receive can be carried on literally a global scale. There are accounts of individuals having photographs taken while they are in gym showers, on the beach or at a local shopping store. These photographs are then posted on the internet and spread around the world.
So, it is understandable that when a person makes a decision to go on a diet and stick to it, it is a very emotional thing. It is also easy to understand the joy that they feel as they watch the pounds melt off their body. This is also true of the frustration they feel when the fat does not melt off their body in certain trouble areas.
Thankfully, individuals can turn to procedures like SmartLipo™ to give them great improvements with minimal downtime. One of the primary benefits of SmartLipo™ is that it is less invasive and requires less recovery time than a traditional liposuction procedure. Another nice thing about SmartLipo™ is that only a local anesthetic is used.
The cannula that is used to remove the broken-down fat is exceptionally thin. It is a laser fiber. The laser causes the fat cells to rupture, and these fat cells are permanently destroyed. Once the laser liquefies the fat, it is sucked out in a gentle way.
The heat produced by the laser coagulates the skin and actually causes the skin around the treatment area to tighten. This minimizes the dimpling and sagging skin effect that some patients have after traditional liposuction.
SmartLipo™ has helped countless people achieve their goals for their body. Schedule a consultation at Island Medical Laser in Roslyn Heights to see if this procedure can work for you. Contact us today to book your appointment!
