The surgery ensures definite results, with patients achieving firm, smooth and shapely-looking knees. The knee cap and the front structures of the knee become more defined.
Smartlipo Laser liposuction for the Knee - a Safe Option
Smartlipo Triplex is a sophisticated modality introduced by Cynosure that is used to provide liposuction. It is powered by multiplex technology that utilizes laser energy in multiple wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) to ensure superior results. Usually, local anesthesia is used by the surgeon for numbing the knee area. A tiny cannula is introduced via a small incision made in the treatment area; the cannula delivers laser energy that melts the fat effectively. The melted fat is safely removed without causing much discomfort to the patient. This laser procedure provides the following benefits:
>> Minimally invasive
>> Minimal blood loss, scarring, pain or discomfort
>> No risk of over treatment because of the precise delivery of energy
>> Uniform treatment
>> Superior tissue tightening
>> Faster treatment
>> Speedy recovery
After the Procedure
Knee liposuction is a targeted treatment that has a short recovery period. Patients can return to work and other normal routines within a few days. Often a weekend would suffice as recovery period for some patients. Prescription medications or over the counter drugs can be taken for controlling mild pain. Compression leggings may have to be worn by the patients during the healing period. There may be some swelling and bruising after the procedure. However, they disappear quickly and the aesthetic results are visible within a few weeks. Final results are seen within six months. Men and women undergoing this laser procedure achieve more shapely, toned and younger looking knees.
