Hey Friends! I just wanted to take a minute to tell you all about the SmartLipo procedure.  Unlike traditional Liposuction, SmartLipo uses a laser and tiny incisions to extract fat from different areas of the body.  The laser also seals blood vessel as it is removing the fatty tissue, resulting in less swelling and bruising than other Liposuction methods. SmartLipo is  mainly used on those little, pesky areas that exercise can no longer tone.  These areas include; abdomen, back, face, chin, hips, flanks, and thighs.  SmartLipo can be done under  local anesthesia.  The patient can be standing while the surgeon preforms the operation. This helps Dr. Yee to work on scale closer to what the end results will look like if there are small areas that need to be sculpted. After the procedure, Dr. Yee's staff will go over very important post operative instructions.  To ensure the best final result, you must precisely follow these directions.  You may also be given compression bandages to help keep the readjusted body tissue in place.  Your doctor will also schedule your post operative appointments to monitor your healing and scarring.  You will experience some bruising and swelling, which should subside in a week.  When the swelling has completely subsided, your healing process is over. SmartLipo is an advanced and effective way to get trim, long lasting results.  To learn more about this procedure, call our office at anytime to schedule a consultation. 501.224.1044.
