Today there are more ways than ever to help people lose weight and look their best. This naturally leads to people having a lot of questions about what they should expect from the treatments. Smart lipo is one of the most common treatments to trim unwanted fat and tone your body, and we here at Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX would like to answer a few of your burning questions about the procedure below.
How Much Weight Can You Lose From Smart Lipo?
How much you can lose from smart la treatments is the million-dollar question, and the answer might surprise you. In most cases, people undergoing this treatment will lose 10 pounds or less. A 10-pound weight loss is enough to shave a couple off inches of your problem area, even if it doesn’t significantly decrease your overall body weight.
Why Don’t You Lose More?
The goal with smart lipo isn’t to lose a significant amount of fat. Instead, the treatment is meant to reshape your body to help enhance your natural curves. It’ll take away any fatty deposits hiding the aesthetically pleasing contours of your body. Instead of making you lose weight, it enhances your overall silhouette.
How Does Smart Lipo Work?
The treatment works by targeting your problem area rather than your body as a whole. For example, if you feel your thighs are a little too large for your liking, then the treatment will be performed on those areas of unwanted fat around the thigh area.
It works much the same as regular liposuction, but after the treatment, you’ll be left with less bruising and pain than with traditional methods. The person doing your treatment will use a laser to liquefy or soften your unwanted fat before it’s removed with a cannula. You should see instant results, and results will improve for up to a week after the treatment. You’ll also notice your skin firming up in 3 to 4 weeks following your session.
Who Is The Treatment Best For?
Lipo may be a highly effective treatment, but that doesn’t mean it’s suitable for everybody. People struggling to maintain a stable weight may find the treatment ineffective, as any fat lost during your session may easily be regained within a couple of months based on your lifestyle/behavioral challenges. Those who have a stable weight are usually people with a healthy and balanced approach to nutrition, exercise, and eating.
So, if you’re at the start of a weight loss journey, then this treatment most likely isn’t for you. It’s best suited to people nearing the end of a weight loss journey and wanting to get rid of those last 10 pounds. It’s also ideal for people who don’t feel the need to lose weight overall, but who do think they have an area with a little too much fat on it for their liking.
Is This Treatment for Men or Women?
Anybody can benefit from a lipo treatment. We’ll curate it to suit your body shape and achieve your desired results. For example, some women may want to remove some fat from their inner thighs so the outer thighs look curvier. Men might prefer to remove excess fat covering their abdominal muscles instead. Whatever the issue, we will do what we can to make you look and feel your best.
Is There an Age Limit for the Treatment?
As long as you’re in good health and in a sound state of mind, there’s no upper age limit on these treatments. They can be effective for people of all ages, whether you’re a young adult or a senior citizen. However, please note that this is an elective treatment and therefore won’t be performed on people under the age of 18.
Can You Get the Treatment Done Twice?
You can have the same area treated more than once, but you’ll have to wait some time before you go back in for another session. You can also have the treatment done on multiple areas of your body, though it’s best not to get too much done at once.
What Do the Results of the Treatment Look like?
The more fat removed, the more drastic the immediate result will be. Plus, those starting at a lower body weight will see more measurable instant results. You’ll mainly notice of reduction in the size of your problem area, and results will be more noticeable once your skin has firmed up again a couple of weeks after the treatment.
The Overall Outlook
After a single smart lipo treatment, you should see an immediate enhancement in the shape of your body, and the scale should show you up to 10 pounds lighter. Many people don’t even need to remove a full 10 pounds to see significant results. Contact us here at Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX. Call us at 432-653-1536 to make an appointment.
