Am I a Candidate for Smartlipo?
BMI- Calculate Your Body Mass Index
BMI is calculated using your Height & Weight. BMI is a reliable indicator of total body fat, which is related to the risk of general disease (diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc.) and death. The score is valid for both men and women. Ideally, we should all strive for a healthy BMI within the 18.5 to 24.9 range.
It’s important to know your BMI and to discuss your BMI and potential health risks with your doctor during your initial consultation.
Where can you pinch an inch?
Many people look in the mirror and poke and prod at love handles, stomach rolls, saddle bags, or waddles under their chins. Have you wished these little lumps and bumps would just go away? Well wishing only gets you so far, and in the real world you need real help and a real solution.
Almost everyone who’s interested in laser-assisted body contouring is a good candidate for Smartlipo. You need to be in good health, getting regular exercise and staying within about 25 pounds of your ideal weight. Smartlipo is not a weight loss procedure but instead is used to create a more flattering silhouette where small pockets of fat linger. If you are bothered by localized fat deposits that just won’t shape up and you have realistic expectations for your body contouring outcome, Smartlipo may be just what the doctor ordered.
While a huge number of men and women can benefit from this procedure, it’s not right for everyone.
In some cases, our surgeons may recommend you delay your Smartlipo procedure, or may discuss other body contouring options that are more appropriate for your situation. Smartlipo may not be a good fit for you if you are:
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
- Taking anti-coagulants (blood thinners)
- Living with heart, kidney, or liver disease
A consultation with one of our surgeons is the best way to determine whether Smartlipo is right for you. Keep in mind that people with larger fat deposits have the option of combining a traditional liposuction procedure with Smartlipo to achieve a remarkably slimmer and precision-contoured new look.
