Smart Lipo in Phoenix, AZ

The fatty areas on a person’s neck, face and chin area can be seriously detrimental to their body image and overall self-esteem. It can cause frustration, stress, and depression. And to make matters worse, these areas often don’t respond to traditional diet and exercise. As a result, many people find themselves dissatisfied with their appearance and wanting to get rid of these difficult and unsightly areas. Fortunately, there’s a solution. Residents who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona, can turn to board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC for SmartLipo® for the face to eliminate fat.

What Is SmartLipo®?

SmartLipo® is like liposuction in that it removes fat from certain areas of the body. However, unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo® is faster and more effective and allows patients to recover more quickly. Instead of a scalpel, SmartLipo® uses a concentrated laser to heat up the fat around the face and break it down, allowing it to be eliminated simply and painlessly.

Benefits of SmartLipo®

SmartLipo® is a simple out-patient procedure which can take less than an hour to complete. There are a number of benefits to SmartLipo® as compared to traditional liposuction, including:

  • A quicker recovery time
  • A less invasive procedure—lasers on top of the skin, rather than a regular surgery
  • Viability on a number of areas of the body, including the face and neck

What Is the Procedure for SmartLipo®?

Dr. Taghizadeh uses a local anesthetic to numb the SmartLipo® treatment areas, so you’ll be awake and alert during the procedure. He will begin by inserting a small tube into your face or neck, attaching it to the SmartLipo® equipment. The machine sends a warm, gentle current through the skin near the tube insertion point, reaching the fat cells underneath. The effect breaks down fat to make it weaker for the next step.

The doctor will then insert a second tube into the same point as the first. This device acts as a vacuum to pull the liquid fat from the area and preventing fat from settling into that same area in the future.

Typically, SmartLipo® can be performed within two hours, which may vary depending on the number of areas being treated. The advantage of SmartLipo® over traditional liposuction methods is that the surgery can reach smaller pockets of fat in areas that would be otherwise inaccessible. To obtain your desired results, you may need to attend up to three sessions.

SmartLipo® Recovery

The majority of patients experience dramatic results immediately after undergoing the SmartLipo® procedure. The local anesthetic may leave you feeling slightly groggy for a few hours, so Dr. Taghizadeh advises spending some time in the recovery room to rest before heading home. You may feel somewhat weak, unable to engage in physical activity or return to work; however, you will have the strength to recuperate and fully recover at home. Generally, you can return to work and your routine a few days after the procedure. You can enjoy permanent results from SmartLipo® as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

How Much Does SmartLipo® Cost in Phoenix?

Most insurance companies consider plastic surgery to be an elective procedure and do not offer coverage for these procedures; SmartLipo® is usually excluded from policies. In order to make liposuction treatments and other plastic surgeries financially accessible and affordable, Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, accepts cash, check and credit cards. In addition, financing is offered through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®. If you have any questions about SmartLipo®, recovery, costs or financing options at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, please give us a call.

Is SmartLipo® Right for Me?

The fat around your jowls can be embarrassing and unsightly. You may try to hide it with various clothes and accessories, but often they only make things worse, drawing more attention to the problem. Perhaps the rest of your body is slim and fit, but your cheeks and face still have the mushy, fat look of a chipmunk—and no matter how much you diet and exercise, you can’t seem to change the shape of those features. If this situation sounds familiar, then SmartLipo® could be the solution you’ve been looking for, not only to eliminate the fat from those difficult areas on your face and neck, but to help fat stay away for good.

Are you looking for a way to eliminate fat quickly with minimal invasiveness? Then SmartLipo® may be just what you need. If you live in or around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley or the surrounding communities of Arizona, please contact Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, led by board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, to schedule a personal SmartLipo® consultation.
