Taking a Closer Look at the Smartlipo Procedure

Breakthrough liposuction alternative


Dealing with stubborn body fat is something that many people struggle with. Even with dieting and exercise, you still can have a hard time achieving the kind of results you're after. This is exactly why so many people end up considering cosmetic procedures in order to deal with the fat once and for all. One procedure that is catching on in popularity is Smartlipo.

When first introduced in the year 2000, it was hailed as being a huge advancement in the field. Today, it has evolved and only managed to become better, with many hailing it as the "gold standard" when it comes to laser lipolysis. So, what exactly is Smartlipo and could it be right for you? Here's a beginner's guide to the procedure.

What is Smartlipo?

As stated, when it was first developed and introduced in Italy in the year 2000, it was seen as a major advancement when it came to liposuction, body sculpting and body contouring. The cosmetic procedure is FDA-approved and is only minimally invasive. It can act as a great alternative to the traditional liposuction procedure which is extremely invasive.

It aims to remove body fat through the use of laser technology. Because there aren't many cuts necessary, there are fewer side effects, and less bruising. At the same time, it offers incredibly effective results. As for the procedure itself, patients also find it is less painful and it can offer more precise results.

The way it works is that the laser actually liquefies the fat deposits found in the skin's middle layers. A tiny incision is made so that the fluid can be drained. The results are skin that is unwrinkled and smooth looking.

Patients also like the fact that general anesthesia isn't usually needed, which makes the recovery process easier and faster.

The Technology Has Continued to Evolve

Since it was first developed, the technology has continued to evolve and offer even greater results for patients. The London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic is one place where you can have Smartlipo.

Who Can Benefit from It?

The ideal candidate for Smartlipo is someone who is healthy and no more than 30 pounds over their ideal body weight. Because it focuses on specific fat deposits, it is also ideal for those who want to target certain areas such as love handles, thighs, the abdomen, or hips. That's not to say it can't be used in other areas of the body such as neck, chin, face, and breasts, but these are the most popular treatment areas.

Just one treatment is usually all that is needed, and the downtime is as little as a couple of days. Results will be evident within a week but then will continue to improve over the next few months.

If you think that Smartlipo could be the right procedure for you, then it's a good idea to schedule a consultation to discuss your areas of concerns and learn what your expectations could be.

Me Saying I Don't Watch 'Game of Thrones' Is NOT Your Cue To Convince Me To Start

"Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you."


Yes, I have flaws. We all do. But it seems as if though my biggest flaw is that I have never seen "Games of Thrones." Nope, not even one single second. I don't know why I haven't seen it, it's not that I'm particularly against the show. I guess it's just too late now for me to start it, as the premiere of the eighth and final season aired April 14th. And for some reason, I just feel that I'm too far behind to even attempt to start it.

But please, I beg of you, do not try to get me to watch it. I don't want to; I've made my decision that I have missed the "Game of Thrones" train and I have accepted my fate. It's OK, you can use your heavy TV series persuasion on someone else, don't waste it on me.

But not being a Thronie (I have no idea if you "Game of Thrones" fans actually use that term, but it's fine) comes with its own set of hardships. Yes, I know that missing out on "unquestionably the most acclaimed and beloved show on television" is probably the greatest hardship, I know, I know.

But trying to scroll through social media while seemingly every single person on my feed is posting about the show? Now that's hard. I see memes left and right, constant reaction videos, clips of scenes that I will never understand. I see people being shocked by certain characters doing certain things to certain other characters and I just cannot understand! It's tough, it really is. I feel like I'm in elementary school, sitting on the bench beside the playground watching all of the cool kids playing together. I feel excluded and uninvited to the party that is the "Game of Thrones" fandom.

It really is hard. It's difficult not understanding the jokes and comments about all the happenings in "Game of Thrones." But to those who are obsessed avid watchers, I apologize. I sincerely am sorry that I can never understand your "Game of Thrones" talk. I am sorry that my inferior self is not interested in your favorite show.

As some character that I will never know in "Game of Thrones" says, "once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you." I have accepted that my major flaw is the fact that I have never seen "Game of Thrones" and that I, unfortunately, have no interest in watching. So please, don't use it against me. Besides, that one character that I don't even know said that you can't anyway.

How to Prepare an Enjoyable First RV Road Trip


You felt excited when you bought your recreational vehicle, and now the thrill is even bigger since you are finally going to embark on your very first road trip with it. This vacation is going to be different from everything you have done so far. As it is the case with all firsts, there is a fair chance to overlook some important details, so here is a list of all the things you should check and do prior to setting off on your big adventure.

Take it for a test drive

Surely you have already done this before the purchase, but you could definitely make use of a few more hours behind the wheel. Since this is your first RV, it takes some time to get used to switching lanes, or driving it uphill and downhill. You'll also never forget to secure the drawers if you see anything flying out of them during a sudden turn.

Check the weather

It almost goes without saying, but make sure you always look for the forecast for a longer period than the length of your trip. Experiencing a storm in the middle of your journey is going to make it memorable, though not in a good way. Also, bad weather increases chances of accidents.

Check the paperwork

In short, collect all the necessary documentation. You should have your credit cards, cash, ownership documents, a map (in addition to the GPS device), and emergency telephone numbers. Furthermore, you never know what can happen on the road, so it's highly recommendable you get some kind of insurance, such as Good Sam Extended Warranty Protection, since this type of mechanical breakdown insurance comes with quite a few benefits.

Make a plan

Even though exploring the great outdoors with an RV seems to be a personification of spontaneity, you still need to have some fixed points, especially if you have small kids on board. Campgrounds get booked sooner than you think, so you had better do that on time. They are very convenient because you can find the necessary RV hook ups there, as well as other facilities. Don't take this for granted, though – always ask for details about their electrical, water, and sewage hookups.
As for the Wi-Fi, don't always count on it. Some campsites can be so crowded that it's almost impossible to get a good connection.

Glorious food

Surely you have in mind what groceries and snacks you're going to bring, but is your fridge in order? Turn it on 12 hours before you set off to check it's working properly. In order to cook food, you'll need pots, pans and dishes, too.

Ways to have fun

To make the trip truly enjoyable, think of different ways to entertain yourselves both indoors and outdoors. Bring cards, board games, or tablets. Kids can do some projects or some coloring activities. To really make the most of your vacation, do some research on what is going on in the area you are traveling to. Perhaps there is a festival, a funfair, or some interesting landmarks to be visited. Camping and time in a campsite needn't be the only highlights of your trip.

Necessities and extras

We have already mentioned some documents, but here is what else should be checked off the list.

A Swiss army knife, flashlights and a complete first aid kit are a must. You should also bring some medications just in case, as well as an insect repellent (there probably won't be a pharmacy around the corner when you need one). Toiletries are on the list, too.

RVs are quite spacious, so you can definitely bring your bikes, sleeping bags, hiking boots, as well as pillows for ultimate comfort. You needn't pack lightly when it comes to clothes either, but bear in mind the weather forecast.

So, you can finally get a taste of adventure and satisfy your inner nomad! Prepare well, and you will fully enjoy the whole experience.
