Now you can change all that with this one time procedure: Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting is a minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells.

What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure utilizing a laser to destroy fat cells and tighten skin. It incorporates traditional liposuction along with laser lipolysis, which can effectively treat areas of unwanted fat on the face, neck, arms, male breast, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and other body areas. It is effective for tightening loose and flabby skin.
How does SmartLipo work?
The SmartLipo laser disrupts fat cells with thermal and photoacoustic actions-heating and shattering the fat cell membrane. The laser coagulates the underlying blood vessels thereby lessening the bleeding, bruising, and overall recovery time of this procedure.
Does SmartLipo produce long-lasting results?
Yes! The SmartLipo procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells. It may take three to six months to achieve maximum results, however.
Who is a good candidate for SmartLipo?
Ideal candidates are in good health, are close to ideal body weight, and have realistic expectations of what this procedure can do.
How many treatments are required?
For the majority of patients, one treatment is required. The treatment session can last from 1 to 4 hours depending on the sites being treated.
What complications can occur with SmartLipo?
Fortunately, complications are uncommon. As with any surgical procedure, infections can occur. Skin bruising may occur. Reactions to the local anesthetic can occur including persistent numbness. The laser can cause burns. These will all be reviewed during your consultation.
How do I get started?
A consultation is required for all patients. There is no charge for this visit. At this time we will determine if SmartLipo is right for you. If you are a good candidate and you wish to proceed, we will go over specific pre-procedure instructions.
How much does this procedure cost?
The exact cost will be reviewed at the time of consultation.
What are the details of the procedure?
Most patients received prophylactic antibiotics the night before and the morning of the procedure. You may eat a light meal prior to the procedure. The area or areas to be treated will be marked and photographed. The skin will then be cleansed with an antiseptic solution. A small injection of local anesthetic will be made. An incision just large enough to insert a small tube will then be made. This small tube will introduce additional local anesthetic. Once the area is sufficiently numb the SmartLipo treatment begins, which is a combination of traditional liposuction and laser lipolysis. The laser tip is inserted underneath the skin through the same incision made previously. The laser tip moves continuously over the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area or areas, this can take from 45 minutes to several hours. Once the treatment is completed, the skin is cleaned, dressings are applied, and a compression garment is put on. (The compression garment is worn for 1-2 weeks.) After the procedure you will be monitored for a short while. Post-procedure instructions will be reviewed. A follow-up appointment in 1 to 3 days is required.
