How Is SmartLipo Different from Weight Loss?

Published on May 2, 2022 by

Even though a SmartLipo treatment results in reduced fat, the procedure isn’t designed to help you shed pounds. That means when you step on the scale after a successful session, you won’t notice a major difference. This is because the treatment is intended for fat reduction rather than weight loss—especially since SmartLipo from the Philadelphia area’s Dr. Scott Chapin is used only for addressing an unwanted double chin.

Fortunately, SmartLipo for submental fat reduction (the medical term for shrinking a double chin) works very well to handle what traditional fat-loss methods don’t do very well.

When we consistently maintain a calorie deficit, larger fat cells release the fat they have stored. The freed triglycerides are then converted into energy for fuel. This process causes the fat cells to significantly reduce in size, which leads to body composition changes. In other words, a person who successfully diets and exercises should see their overall shape change—or at least watch as the numbers go down on the scale.

Even though we’re told that the healthiest way to get fit is through diet and exercise, one of the downsides to this approach is that you can’t spot reduce (meaning reduce fat from one specific area, such as below the chin). Therefore, it’s best to take a holistic approach when working out—rather than focusing on specific areas.

When we lose weight, all stores of fat in the body are tapped evenly. However, the way in which fat loss occurs varies depending on the individual. Your metabolic rate and weight loss depend on several factors, such as age, gender, genetics, diet, activity level, hormonal balance, thyroid health, and sleep quality.

With this in mind, SmartLipo is an ideal tool for someone who wants to finally reduce that stubborn area below the chin that doesn’t seem to respond to workouts.
