Smartlipo™ is a new minimally invasive form of liposuction that uses a laser to liquefy unwanted fat on the waist, face, thighs, arms, or breasts. The laser’s energy is applied directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and be drained away naturally by the body. Smartlipo utilizes a local rather than a general anesthetic. You are awake and comfortable during treatment, and can talk to the doctor. Treatments with the Smartlipo system generally result in less swelling and bleeding as compared to traditional liposuction methods and can usually be performed in one session.
A unique procedure that combines both Smartlipo and VASER Liposelection improves results. By combining the two, patients achieve the desired contour results of VASER while benefiting from the revolutionary skin tightening effects of Smartlipo.
This combination is a major advancement in liposuction technology.
The Smart Lipo laser dissolves fat, which makes it easier to remove. This allows our doctor to use a smaller cannula (tube) during your surgery. Thus you will heal faster and not require stitches.
The Smart Lipo Laser also stimulates the growth of collagen, which will continue to tighten your skin for
During Smart Lipo, the area to be treated is infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic. A very small incision is then made in the skin. (The incision is so small that it will not require stitches.) A very small cannula (tube) containing the laser fiber is inserted into the fatty layers. The small laser fiber delivers energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away.
