How long does an actual SmartLipo procedure last?

The entire procedure for SmartLipo takes about an average of 2 to 4 hours per session depending on the amount of work that needs to be done.

How many SmartLipo treatments must take place for results to show?

It really depends on the amount of fat that needs to be dissolved. Majority of patients get excellent results from one SmartLipo treatment, while others need more. A typical treatment can last up to hour per specific area. If the patient requires 3 different areas, then it can an entire procedure can last up to 3 hours.

What is the long term outcome of SmartLipo?

SmartLipo Atlanta reviews on Slimplasty state that a majority of individuals who get SmartLipo tend to see results immediately. It may still take up to 3 months for the skin to retract back to its normal size based on the amount of fat that is removed. As with any plastic surgical procedure, it will take 6 months to 1 entire year before the final results show.

Is SmartLipo an outpatient procedure?

Yes, SmartLipo is always performed as an out-patient procedure and is done under local anesthesia. This is one of the great benefits of SmartLipo and makes it more advantageous than other forms of liposuction.

Is SmartLipo a painless procedure?

Given that it is done under local anesthesia, majority of individuals do not feel much of anything during the surgery. Some patients report of slight discomfort and soreness after the surgical procedure is completed, but these symptoms tend to go away within days of the surgery.


A lot of people during our complimentary consultations ask, “How do I know if I’m a good candidate?” The truth is, Coolsculpting isn’t for everyone. Coolsculpting is really designed for diet and exercise resistant fat on individuals who are about five to thirty five pounds within their goal weight. If you’re much more than thirty five pounds over weight, what we at Coolsculpting Atlanta would like to suggest is set Coolsculpting as a goal. Go out and eat healthy and start to exercise and as you lose those pounds and get closer to that thirty five pound mark away from your ideal target weight, then you can come in and you can use Coolsculpting which will really tweak and refine those problem areas. It is a phenomenal technology and it actually works. When it’s coupled with proper diet and exercise, that’s when you truly see transformative results.

What does the procedure feel like?

Unfortunately, any time we’re dealing with a sensory procedure, everybody’s experience is a little bit different, but I can tell you about my own experience as well as the experience of other clients that we’ve had. For me, the actual treatment isn’t that uncomfortable. But days and weeks after the treatment, I tend to itch in the area that was treated. It’s because the nerve endings are starting to reawaken. Some of our clients say that during the actual process, it feels a little bit like a mammogram on your stomach or the area that you’re having treated. Some people don’t feel anything at all. Some people have a little bit of cramping, a little bit of tingling, a little bit of numbness after. It just has a wide range of variation from client to client. But what I can tell you is that we have done plenty of treatments and not a single person who has done a treatment has never said that what they felt during the procedure wasn’t worth the results.


Hello, I’m Elizabeth Davis, and today I wanted to talk a little bit about Ultherapy. A lot of patients have asked, “How does Ulthera work?” “What is Ultherapy?” Let me give you the 30-second run down.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound. Ultrasound is the same energy that’s used in sonograms (the same thing used to image babies) and it’s a way to bypass the skin and the sound waves travel down to the target area, heat it, and then healing process over the next three to six months can tighten tissue and form new collagen. That’s what Ultherapy is.

Here are some of the areas you can treat with Ultherapy. You have the upper neck, the cheek, the temples, and a slight brow lift. We target the fiber-muscular area.

Here’s the Ultherapy machine. It’s a fancy way to show you what the ultra sound is looking at. It’s already on so I can scan it. We have these different attachments and these different attachments basically tell us what depth that we want to go. Of course you want to go less deep on the forehead and more deep where you have more tissue on the cheeks.


With the machine, I can see where I match up and I do little lines of treatment to and that would deliver energy. That’s basically what we do for patients.

How long does Ultherapy take?

It can take basically fifteen minutes for a brow lift, to if we did everything (brow, temple, cheeks, lower cheeks, upper neck, and lower neck) that can be an hour and twenty minutes to an hour and a half. That’s a little bit longer treatment. A lot of people really love it when there’s not much you can do to these jowls or just when your cheeks are starting to sag a little bit, it’s great…especially for a non-surgical intervention. Nothing can match how good of results you can get from a face lift, but for a non-invasive procedure, this is the only FDA-approved device and it’s about as good as there is.

Why is Ultherapy recommended?

I like this because it’s ultrasound and it can basically target deeper tissues. There’s nothing else that basically can get you that deep. No laser. Surgery can but nothing as an external device can go to the depth that you need as ultrasound. So what else is out there? There’s radio frequency, there is microwave, and then there’s ultrasound. They all affect different depths. But since ultrasound is a longer wavelength, it can go a little bit deeper and affect the deeper muscular fascia layer which is below the fat layer. Radio frequency is not able to get to that depth so that’ll treat some of the more superficial tissues. To learn more about Ultherapy or to book an appointment in Atlanta, visit Slimplasty.
