Advanced Laser Fat Removal

Reshape Your Body. Reshape Your Life.

Smartlipo is a medical device designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly referred to as laser liposuction. A very thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a small incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall.

How It Works

Smartlipo laser body contouring is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and neck, and permanently eliminates fat. So if your problem areas won’t respond to exercise and diet, Smartlipo provides dramatic improvements with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction.

  • Smartlipo uses local anesthesia to numb only a specific area of the body being treated so you’re awake during the procedure.
  • The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and the fat cells are permanently destroyed.
  • The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because Smartlipo tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin.

Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat; coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity by 57%.

With Smartlipo, you’re in the doctor’s office one day and turning heads the next. Are you ready? It’s time to reshape your body and reshape your life.

What to Expect

Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia. You will be visiting for an in-office procedure that typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas. Because of the anesthesia, you will not feel pain, rather a sensation comparable to tugging or pressure.

After the procedure you may experience some light bruising and swelling and will be required to wear a compression garment for about a week to help with the healing process and support the areas treated, however, you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.

For most patients, results are achieved in just one Smartlipo treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months. Since fat cells are permanently destroyed in the treated area, your results will be long-lasting, however, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Before & After

How do I know if Smartlipo is right for me?
The best candidates for Smartlipo are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat, or fat on the lower torso. A consultation with a Smartlipo physician can provide you with the best information.
Is Smartlipo safe?
Smartlipo is the most widely used and extensively studied, used, and validated laser-assisted liposuction or lipolysis system available today. It was the first laser introduced for this purpose. With a decade of studies, Smartlipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction.
How long does the procedure take?
On average, the procedure will take 1.5-2 hours. This is dependent on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas.
What does the procedure feel like?
Because the area is anesthetized, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure but it is a mild sensation. Following Smartlipo, you may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated and the recommendation of your physician.
Do I have to stay in the hospital?
No. Smartlipo is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
How many treatments are necessary?
For most patients, results are achieved in just one Smartlipo treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.
How long will the results last?
Smartlipo permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to enjoy long-lasting results.
