Since the late 1960s, body sculpting treatments, notably liposuction, have been available to the public. While our desire to have a more pleasing appearance has remained constant, body sculpting procedures have evolved significantly. At Visage Clinic Toronto, we take great pleasure in remaining on top of the latest, most effective treatments for meeting our customers’ requirements, such as Smart Lipo.
What Exactly Is SmartL ipo?
SmartLipo is a kind of laser liposuction that is becoming more popular. The SmartLipo consists of a tiny tube that contains a 1 mm laser fiber and is designed to be portable. The laser fiber generates laser energy that warms, melts, and coagulates fat cells that have been targeted. In addition, the laser closes the blood arteries, allowing patients to experience less discomfort, swelling, and bruising.
Is SmartLipo a Good F it?
It’s possible that you’re ready for SmartLipo if you’re battling with stubborn fat that no amount of dieting or exercise will help you shed, and you’re willing to investigate alternative options in order to achieve your weight loss goals. Keep in mind that in order to get best results, you must be in generally good health and at or near your desired weight.
Who Is a Good Candidate for SmartLipo?
Patients who are in good health but have extra fat deposits that do not react to diet and exercise are the greatest candidates for SmartLipo treatment. Men and women who would be great candidates for this procedure:
- Have reached the age of majority (18 years old).
- Have reached or exceeded their target body weight by 25 pounds.
- Set realistic expectations for themselves.
Non-ideal candidates for SmartLipo might explore a nonsurgical body contouring treatment at Visage Clinic, which may be performed without surgery.
Smartlipo is best suited for smaller zone liposuction procedures where heat energy and contraction are required, while BodyTite lipo is more efficient, produces more remarkable contraction, and is often advised for moderate to large regions of liposuction procedures.
Advantages of S martLipo
SmartLipo is a safe and effective alternative to conventional liposuction procedures. During your appointment, your surgeon will discuss the anticipated result with you in detail. Also included will be a more detailed discussion of the advantages.
Removal of stubborn fat
SmartLipo may be used to remove stubborn fat from the arms, legs, face, neck, belly, and buttocks. It can also be used to eliminate excess fat from the thighs. It takes up to six months to observe the full effects of the treatment, although the benefits are obvious within a week of starting.
Skin contraction is improved
Soft tissue contraction and control are improved over standard liposuction, and bruising and swelling are reduced.
When executing the surgery, your surgeon will create just tiny incisions, and the fat is removed with as little force as possible. When compared to conventional liposuction, minimally invasive liposuction has fewer problems and requires less recovery time.
Results that last a long time
SmartLipo is a fat-cell-destroying agent. With SmartLipo, patients may anticipate long-term improvements if they maintain a balanced diet and engage in regular physical activity. In reality, the majority of patients only need a single treatment throughout the course of their lives.
How Much is SmartLipo?
Depending on how much fat is to be eliminated, how large an area is treated, and how many zones are treated, prices might vary significantly. In most cases, prices start from $6,999 for a single treatment zone to $11,999 for four treatment zones.
After Smartlipo, How Long Does it Take for you to Feel like Yourself Again?
Some patients report feeling completely healed the day after the surgery, while others report needing to rest for two to three days. SmartLipo is a procedure that takes time.
It usually takes between 30-45 minutes per treatment region on average. The SmartLipo treatment takes an average of 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

How is SmartLipo Performed?
SmartLipo treatments are carried out inside the Visage Clinic surgical suites, under the supervision or direct supervision of Dr. DuPéré. Prior to the treatment, patients are given local anesthetic or oral sedative to help them relax. Once the energy-assisted device is in place, the surgeon will start the procedure on the treatment zone. The fat is heated, melted, then congealed by the gadget. A microcannula is used to extract the congealed fat from the body.
How to Prepare for a SmartLipo Procedure
Patients should prepare for SmartLipo in advance to ensure that they receive the best possible outcomes from the procedure. Preparations should begin at least six weeks before the scheduled operation date. Patients should do the following:
- Consume a nutritious diet.
- Participate in frequent physical activity.
- Get plenty of fluids.
- Quit smoking immediately.
There are additional preparations that must be completed one week before the surgery. Patients must comply with the following requirements:
Take a break from vitamins and drugs that thin the bloodstream.
Discuss all of your other drugs or medication intake with your surgeon.
Arrange for a driver to accompany you on the day of the surgery.
What to Expect Following a SmartLipo Procedure
It is typical to have some soreness, bruising, and swelling shortly after the treatment. Some people report seeing effects as soon as one week. Improvements are expected to last for up to six months.
SmartLipo Recovery Timeline
Many patients report feeling completely healed the day after having SmartLipo performed, while it may take up to six weeks for a full recovery to occur. Because the recovery time is dependent on the size of the zone and the quantity of fat removed, each patient’s aftercare is tailored to their specific needs.
Many patients are ready to resume mild and sedentary activities the day after the surgery and are able to return to work the following day.
The majority of patients are released to participate in low-impact activities one to two weeks after their surgery. Walking is included in this.
Patients may return to high-impact activities after four to six weeks of recovery. The majority of patients are not subject to any limitations at this time. Patients are needed to wear compression garments for a minimum of 22 hours per day for the first three weeks after the surgery. The garments provide equal pressure over the treatment sites, which helps to minimize swelling. The garments may be removed after three weeks, and the patient only has to wear them during the day until the treatment site is totally healed.
Best Procedures to Combine with SmartLipo SmartLipo
SmartLipo is often used in conjunction with other procedures such as breast augmentation, stomach tuck, and/or fat grafting to the buttocks or breast. Among the non-surgical options include laser hair removal, cellulite reduction, and stretch mark therapy.
Ten Signs That You Should Consider SmartLipo Treatment at Visage Clinic Toronto
1. Your clothing does not fit properly.
Many customers are astonished to hear that when their garments don’t fit properly, they should consider SmartLipo as an option. This may seem absurd to some people. The fit of your garments, on the other hand, has a significant impact on your daily activities. If your clothing doesn’t fit properly, there’s a strong possibility you’ll come off as less confident. From securing your ideal job or long-overdue promotion to meeting new people and gaining the attention of a possible significant other, confidence is essential in all parts of your life.
Unfortunately, many individuals are at or near their optimal weight, but their physique is disproportionate to their weight and height. In the event that you are having difficulty finding clothing that suits you because one portion of your body is much bigger than the rest, we highly suggest consulting with an aesthetic specialist to determine whether or not this cutting-edge technique is correct for you.
2. You are quite close to your ideal weight.
This strategy should be considered when you are within 30 pounds of your desired weight and you are ready to make a change. This is not a method for weight reduction or bariatric surgery. It is a surgery for body reshaping, sometimes known as fat reduction. You must be at or near your ideal weight before you get cosmetic surgery because if you are too far from your goal weight, you will not be content with your results and will need to return for a second session to obtain your desired aesthetic.
3. Having realistic expectations about the outcome of your procedure.
Another indication that now is a good time to contemplate this treatment is that you have reasonable expectations of how it will go. There is a limit to how much volume may be removed at one time in order to ensure your safety. As a result of BMI and other considerations, we are only able to remove between 10 and 12 pounds (5 to 6 liters) of extra adipose tissue and the surrounding fluids during each treatment session.
4. You have realistic expectations about your ability to recuperate.
It is critical to understand that SmartLipo is not a non-invasive procedure. Despite the fact that it is not a completely invasive process, incisions are created throughout the surgery in order for the cannula to be implanted. As a consequence of the process, there will be some downtime after the surgery.
To be more specific, you should plan on taking at least two days off from work to recover. With more fat removed from a larger region or numerous smaller areas, you may need up to four days off from work for rest and recuperation.
5. Your expectations of the procedure itself.
If you have a clear grasp of what you may anticipate from the treatment, now is an excellent time to explore SmartLipo as an option. The treatment takes around two hours for the majority of individuals. But this is very dependent on how many locations are treated during the session, how large those regions are, and how much fat you want to lose.
Because this operation is conducted under local anesthetic without the use of a sedative, you will remain conscious during the process. While you will not experience any discomfort, you may feel pressure when the liquid fat is suctioned out of your body throughout the process. You may fairly anticipate that each difficulty area that has to be addressed will take an hour. The treatment shouldn’t take more than two hours in total if you are targeting your stomach and chest areas.
6. You have a sufficient amount of fat to remove.
An important factor to consider is if you qualify for the procedure because you have sufficient amount of fat to remove. Because of tremendous advancements in medical technology, it is now possible to remove fat from shockingly small areas of the body. For example, we may safely and efficiently remove fat from the face and neck using minimally invasive techniques. However, as a general rule of thumb, if you are contemplating SmartLipo, you should have at least an inch of pinchable fat on your thigh or hip.
7. You Have a Large Number of Problem Regions.
It is best to investigate SmartLipo when you are experiencing various problems at the same time. Traditional liposuction may also be used to remove fat from a variety of areas. Targeting several issue sites with SmartLipo, on the other hand, makes much more sense than targeting multiple trouble spots with conventional liposuction, owing to the substantial increase in needed recovery time when targeting multiple trouble spots with traditional liposuction.
8. You are looking for quick results.
When you want to re-contour your body but don’t have the time to wait six months for results, it’s time to look into the SmartLipo treatment for help. Traditional liposuction causes some significant edema that will result in not noticing the outcomes of the surgery for many months after the procedure. The edema is also severe enough that you must freeze the affected regions and take prescription medication a few times a day for several days to alleviate the symptoms.
Your outcomes will continue to improve for three to six months after you have had this groundbreaking surgery. Significant benefits, on the other hand, are seen as soon as seven days after the procedure.
9. You Desire Results That Are Pain-Free.
Choosing standard liposuction means committing to many weeks of substantial agony and at the very least a few days of discomfort. When you use SmartLipo, you will experience no pain or discomfort.
10. You Have Loose Skin.
If you have loose skin and are considering body contouring, you should only consider SmartLipo as a treatment option. Your body’s collagen creation process is triggered as a result of the heat created by the laser treatment.
Collagen has a variety of important functions in keeping you looking youthful, healthy, and attractive. One of these responsibilities is to maintain your skin taut. In the event that you have loose skin prior to fat removal and do not want to have a separate skin tightening operation done, laser lipolysis is the sole alternative available to you.
