What Is Smart Lipo?
Smart Lipo, also known as laser lipo, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at removing stubborn fat and improving skin tightness and texture.
This fat reduction procedure has become increasingly popular among patients of different ages and body types for its impressive results.
With laser assistance, Smart Lipo works to effectively break up and remove fat while also tightening the skin. Additionally, the heat of the laser can trigger the production of collagen. Collagen is an important protein naturally produced in the body that helps smooth and strengthen the skin.
Smart Lipo can be performed on various parts of the body:
- Male breast tissue
Because laser lipo works to smooth skin texture, it can also reduce the look of cellulite.
Smart Lipo can help you finally get rid of the fat in your trouble spots while also helping your skin look toned and rejuvenated.
Smart Lipo vs. Traditional Lipo
One of the most common questions patients ask is how Smart Lipo compares to traditional lipo. While the two procedures share many similarities, certain differences set them apart.
The most significant difference is the way the procedure is performed. Smart Lipo uses laser assistance. These lasers minimize the need for substantial manual force to break up and remove fat. In addition, the laser helps improve the appearance of the skin.
On the other hand, traditional lipo does not use a laser, which means there is more of a need for manual work during the procedure to remove fat successfully. Because there is no laser, there is a greater chance skin may appear looser or deflated.
Smart Lipo’s cannula is also smaller than the one used for traditional liposuction, so the incision is smaller. Recovery from laser lipo is usually easier and quicker than recovery from traditional lipo.
While traditional liposuction offers several benefits, many patients prefer Smart Lipo. This advanced technique can remove fat and help improve the skin’s appearance while requiring less downtime and recovery than regular lipo.

- Reduction and removal of stubborn fat

What to Expect During Your Smart Lipo Procedure
The very first step toward Smart Lipo is scheduling an initial consultation. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your areas of concern and desired results to create a personalized treatment plan. Once we have a plan, we can schedule your procedure.
On the day of your procedure, we’ll begin by marking up the treatment areas. We perform laser liposuction with anesthesia, and many patients opt for local anesthesia. Local anesthesia means you’ll be awake during the procedure, but you should not feel anything at the treatment sites.
At the start of your procedure, we’ll make a small incision. In this incision, we will insert the cannula with the laser. Once inserted, we’ll gently move the instrument around the area while the laser works to break up fat to be removed through the cannula. We repeat these steps at every treatment area.
Once your procedure is completed, we’ll clean the incision sites, put the appropriate dressing on the area, and apply a compression garment.
SmartLipo: Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re considering Smart Lipo, you likely have several questions. We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions below.
What Does Recovery from SmartLipo Entail?
One of the best advantages of Smart Lipo is the minimal downtime. Many patients feel well enough to return to work and other regular activities in just two to three days after the procedure.
You are expected to wear the compression garment for some time after your procedure, as it helps the area heal properly with minimal swelling. For a smooth recovery, we will provide detailed instructions for aftercare.
When Can I Expect to See Results from My Procedure?
Immediately after your procedure, you may note a difference in the size and appearance of the treatment site. As you heal, the area will look more contoured. Results gradually improve within the first three to six months after your procedure.
How Many SmartLipo Procedures Do I Need to Reach My Desired Results?
We create a treatment plan tailored to your needs, targeting every area you feel needs improvement. Usually, patients only need one session, as we can treat multiple areas during one procedure.
Will the Fat Removed During SmartLipo Ever Come Back?
No. Fat cells do not regenerate once removed. However, the remaining fat cells in the area can expand. Therefore, a proper diet and healthy lifestyle are recommended to maintain results.
