About Smartlipo

If you’ve tried dieting and exercise but parts of your body have simply refused to tone up, Smartlipo may be a great solution for you.* Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that removes fat cells.

Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting Procedure

  • Smartlipo uses local anesthesia to numb your targeted area.
  • The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body and the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes.
  • The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin.*
  • Some light bruising and swelling may occur. Very minimal scarring may occur at the incision sites.
  • There’s very minimal downtime, you can usually resume your normal activities within one day, including light exercise.
  • Results can be seen as soon as swelling subsides, typically within one to three months.*

Smartlipo vs Traditional Liposuction

Like liposuction, Smartlipo also eliminates fat.


Traditional liposuction requires general anesthesia in a hospital. Smartlipo typically only uses local anesthesia and is performed in-office, so there is no need for a hospital visit or stay.

Ease of Fat Removal

Traditional liposuction requires suction and manipulation to remove fat. Smartlipo uses heat to liquefy fat first, making fat removal much easier on your body. With Smartlipo, you’ll usually experience less pain, less bruising, and less swelling than traditional liposuction.

Skin Tightening

Traditional liposuction doesn’t use heat. The heat that Smartlipo uses to liquefy fat also provides skin-tightening benefits, increased elasticity of the skin, less dimpling or sagging.*


Traditional liposuction requires a longer recovery time, due to a bigger cannula and the physical manipulation used during the fat removal process. Smartlipo utilizes a very small cannula and is a very gentle procedure. Smartlipo has a short recovery time with very minimal downtime. With Smartlipo, there’s usually less pain, less bruising, and less swelling.
