Question: Can I get Smart Lipo for my abdomen fat?
Answer: Yes, Smart Lipo is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can remove fat on the abdomen. Smart Lipo is a form of liposuction – a treatment that removes unwanted fat cells out of the body, for permanent fat removal. However, there are a number of different liposuction treatments available, the most advanced being Vaser liposuction.
While Smart Lipo was a welcome alternative to traditional liposuction because it is a gentler procedure which requires a local anaesthetic instead of a general anaesthetic, Smart Lipo still requires the use of a laser to break down fat for removal from the body and can cause substantial bruising and swelling.
The introduction of Vaser lipo introduced next-generation technology to liposuction, swapping laser technology for ultrasound technology to emulsify the fat – a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure. Vaser lipo minimises any bruising and swelling, because the ultrasound technology is so targeted (known as Vaser liposelection), it allows specific areas of fat to be treated without creating significant trauma to surrounding body tissues.
There are two types of Vaser that can treat abdomen fat – Vaser lipo removes unwanted fat to streamline the abdomen, while Vaser High Def targets fat around each of the muscle groups, for definition and shape around the muscles for a ‘six pack’ athletic effect.
EF MEDISPA was one of the first clinics to introduce Vaser lipo to the UK from America, and EF MEDISPA offers its patients both Vaser lipo and Vaser High Def.*
