SmartLipo Versus Regular Liposuction
Smartlipo started out as a brand of laser. But over the years it has evolved into smart liposuction. This has many components to include tumescent anesthesia, microcannulas, laser liposuction, superficial liposuction, power assisted liposuction, open drainage and compression. The appropriate use of these techniques by a skilled and experienced surgeon of any specialty, will give you excellent results with little downtime.
