In a recent article for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we discuss the most common questions women have about recovery after labiaplasty.
SmartLipo is laser liposuction for increased skin tightening and faster recovery, frequently done under local anesthesia. A brief description of SmartLipo is provided below by our partner, Dr. Cynthia Diehl at Diehl Plastic Surgery.
SmartLipo by Dr. Diehl
SmartLipo, sometimes referred to as laser liposuction, uses a carefully calibrated laser to liquefy fat cells. The laser can rupture the fat cells and the resulting liquid substance is removed through small incisions in the skin by the surgeon. The laser can also seal/coagulate blood vessels during the procedure, which can result in less swelling, bleeding, and bruising then with traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction can frequently be done under local anesthesia only. There is also some skin tightening benefit to laser liposuction.
Some of the areas treated with laser liposuction include the submental region (under the chin and jawline), the chest, the abdomen and flanks (lateral and posterior), the back and bra fat, the mons pubis, the outer and inner thighs, and sometimes the knees.
