When it comes to body contouring, men and women have more options than ever before. Three of the most notable options are Smartlipo MPX™, liposuction and CoolSculpting®. If you’re interested in improving the look of your body, you need to understand how these options compare to each other.
We offer Smartlipo MPX to men and women in Columbia, MD, and serve as the exclusive Smartlipo MPX training center in the state, giving area residents access to this state-of-the-art treatment. Unlike traditional lipo, it addresses both unwanted fat and skin laxity.
Smartlipo MPX uses a laser to assist in the procedure, allowing for precise targeting of fat cells. It causes minimal bruising, swelling and bleeding, making the recovery time easier. Local anesthetic is used during the procedure and only very small incisions are needed. The procedure has the ability to target even small areas of excess fat, such as under the chin.
There are many options for trimming down your figure. Which is right for you?
Liposuction is the targeted removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body. It works to contour the body by eliminating fat pockets, but it does not have the ability to tighten the skin. When compared to Smartlipo MPX, it has a longer recovery period and does require general anesthetic.
The CoolSculpting procedure is different from many other forms of contouring as it is non-invasive. It crystallizes the fat cells in the targeted area, freezing up to 25 percent of them. The body then naturally clears these crystallized fat cells over the course of a few weeks. There is essentially no recovery time, with patients often returning to work after their CoolSculpting session.
Which of these procedures is best depends on your specific goals. Most individuals find that liposuction, CoolSculpting or Smartlipo MPX in Columbia, MD can help them achieve the body contouring they are looking for.
