SmartLipo™ is a revolutionary method of liposuction that utilizes laser energy to reduce fat on various areas of the body. Also known as “laser lipolysis,” this procedure rids the body of excess fat deposits, leaving the skin tighter and more contoured. Approved by the FDA, SmartLipo™ offers many benefits over traditional liposuction and other fat reduction techniques.

In addition to having realistic expectations about the procedure, ideal candidates for SmartLipo™ are those who:
- Are at least 18 years old
- Are in good physical and emotional health
- Have areas of fat that are unaffected by regular diet and exercise
- Are bothered by areas of fat and want to get rid of them permanently

What is Acheived With Smartlipo™
Permanent ResultsSmartlipo™ destroys all of the fat cells in the targeted area by literally melting them away. This leaves individuals with permanent results.
Skin TighteningDuring a Smartlipo™ procedure, heat from the laser coagulates the tissue around the area by promoting the production of collagen. As collagen fibers are restored, the skin becomes tighter and more elastic.
Fast RecoverySmartlipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anesthesia and IV Sedation, requiring very small incisions to remove the melted fat. Although some light bruising may occur, you should be able to return to your normal activities within one or two days.
Many Treatment AreasSmartlipo™ can be performed on just about any area of the body, including the neck, arms, breast area, “bra fat,” midsection, “love handles,” back, buttocks, thighs, “saddle bags,” and knees.
