Comparison of SmartLipo versus Traditional Liposuction
A prospective randomized clinical study showed that there's no clinical difference between the traditional liposuction versus laser-assisted liposuction using the SmartLipo machine.
There's less pain, lower lipocrits, higher triglycerides, and DNA cellular membrane traces were detected in the laser-assisted lipoplasty sides as compared to the traditional liposuction.
Higher concentrations of free-fatty acids after laser-assisted lipoplasty was found. It's recommended that this should alert us to any possible hepatic and renal toxicity.
