The Abdomen is one of the most popular areas Dr. Bergeron’s patients request for SmartLipo. Abdominal SmartLipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that provides the patient with less downtime after just one treatment. SmartLipo is performed under a local (tumescent) anesthesia, and a laser is used to melt the fat cells and tighten skin.
The Abdomen is considered two separate areas, the Upper Abdomen (above the navel to below the chest) and Lower Abdomen (below the navel to the top of the pubic area). On average, it takes one to two hours to complete Abdominal SmartLipo, and most patients return to normal activities within one or two days after the procedure.
After the procedure, patients experience mild drainage of fluid from their incision points, and this can last for up to a few days. However, patients wear a compression garment over the treated area for up to two weeks, as this will help facilitate the drainage and reduce swelling.
SmartLipo is performed on many areas of the body including the Upper and Lower Abdomen. Other popular areas are Love Handles/Flanks, Arms, and the Chin/Neck, among many other areas of the body.
The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Abdominal Liposuction is to meet with Dr. Bergeron for a complimentary consultation. At the time of your consultation, he will further evaluate your Abdomen and provide you with a price quote for your procedure.
Price is an important factor when researching Abdominal Liposuction. However, it’s recommended to not make a selection solely based on price for a procedure that has such a strong impact on your body and your appearance.
