Body Contouring Q & A

Lux Medical Spa Institute: Cyrus Sedaghat, MD, PM&R

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring treatments can be invasive or minimally invasive, but they all aim to accomplish the same thing: allowing you to obtain your desired physique. Although they can’t replace healthy lifestyle habits such as eating well and staying active, body contouring can help trim down or otherwise enhance your perceived trouble spots.

How Can Liposuction Help?

Liposuction can help contour your body by eliminating fat in specific areas. At Lux Medical Spa, we provide laser SmartLipo liposuction, which is less invasive than traditional liposuction and brings numerous advantages, such as:

  • Greater potential for fat loss
  • Less downtime for recovery
  • Less pain
  • Tighter skin following treatment

What Areas Can Laser Liposuction Treat?

SmartLipo treatment can help minimize fat in a range of areas, including:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Face
  • Neck

What is SmartLipo Treatment Like?

SmartLipo provides laser-assisted lipolysis, the technical term for suctioning out fat stores. During your treatment, a tube with a laser tip is inserted under your skin. This instrument is used to target concentrated light energy on fat cells. Heat from the laser causes the cells to rupture. Your body will naturally flush these ruptured cells out.

SmartLipo is unique in that it uses triple-wavelength technology, allowing it to not only dissolve fat but tighten your skin, all while providing maximum results with only minimal risks.

Does SmartLipo Cause Side Effects?

You may experience side effects from SmartLipo, but they’re less likely than they would be if you had traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction offers fewer risks for bleeding, bruising, or tenderness. Most people find the recovery time short. Within a few days, you should be able to resume your usual daily activities.

How Can Kybella® Help?

Kybella can help contour a “double chin,” making for a sleeker profile. The medication is injected into moderate to severe fat, destroying the fat cells. Quite often, improvements are visible within two sessions, though you may have up to six sessions spaced a month apart. Though designed for chin fat loss, Kybella may also be used in other body areas, such as your abdomen, upper arms, chest, and outer thighs.
