Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to fix problem areas. With summer just a few weeks away, now’s the time to see Dr. Campano for a solution. Smartlipo is an FDA approved, minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, and neck, and permanently eliminates fat. Laser energy is used to liquefy fat and unlike traditional liposuction that can cause pitting, Smartlipo produces results that are even and smooth. Smartlipo is ideal for delicate areas, like the chin, as it also contours and tightens the skin.
Dr. Campano is extensively trained in the Smartlipo procedure and was the first to offer it in the Antelope Valley and in all of Kern County. Dr. Campano uses the Smartlipo triplex system, which is the most advanced technology available for the procedure. Smartlipo is performed in-office under local anesthesia, which keeps the patient comfortable. A sensation of pressure or tugging is to be expected and the procedure typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on the number and size of areas treated.
Minor side effects include minimal bleeding and some light bruising or swelling, but patients have a much shorter recovery time than the 4-6 weeks usually experienced with traditional liposuction. A compression garment is worn for a few days to help the healing process and most people resume normal activities within a couple of days. Results are often achieved with just one Smartlipo treatment and are visible within a week.
Smartlipo should never be used for weight loss and is intended for people who are in shape but have some trouble areas. The results are long-lasting, as fat cells are permanently removed, however, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Campano wants to help you say goodbye to those love handles and unsightly bulges. To find out if Smartlipo is right for you, call us today at (661) 726-6277 to schedule a consultation with the Antelope Valley’s first Smartlipo practitioner, or visit us online, at www.drcampano.com.
