SmartLipo: The Basics on Laser Liposuction

For targeting small areas of localized fat deposits, many people these days are turning to laser liposuction, or SmartLipo™, as a safer, faster, and often more effective alternative to traditional liposuction.

During a minimally invasive SmartLipo™ procedure, a very thin probe is placed under the skin, containing a tiny laser similar to the type used in cataract surgery. This laser safely and precisely targets and liquefies fat cells, while simultaneously causing the coagulation of blood vessels. This means less bleeding and bruising for the patient, and less risk, since a general anesthetic is rarely needed. Once liquefied, the fat is safely drained from the body, either by suction or naturally.

In cosmetic clinics from Los Angeles to New York, SmartLipo™ has become hugely popular, and the reasons are obvious. The cost of Smart Lipo™ is comparable to other forms of fat removal surgery, the procedure only takes about an hour, and there is far less scarring than liposuction, with no stitches. Usually, patients only need 1-2 days of recovery time, as well, compared to 7-10 days with traditional liposuction. Another nice advantage of SmartLipo™ is the tightening of loose skin that often results from the laser's thermal heating effects. This has helped Smart Lipo™ become a popular treatment not only for weight loss, but for cellulite removal, as well. SmartLipo™ results become gradually apparent over several weeks, as fat exits the body and new collagen growth helps give the skin a smoother, tighter appearance. Because the fat cells are permanently removed, results can last for quite some time. However, the patient is eventually responsible for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, to ensure that new fat deposits aren't developed. The best SmartLipo™ results are typically achieved by physically active people who choose the surgery to treat small areas of fat on their hips, thighs, arms, back, and neck.
