Widely regarded as the most effective permanent fat reducing procedure, Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction offers dramatic, smooth results on the abdomen, love handles, arms, legs, knees, and neck. Smartlipo requires minimal downtime (about a weekend or so of laying low), and is performed without general anesthesia. Results are often noticeable within a few days. Because laser energy is used during the procedure, patients report much smoother results and significant skin tightening compared to traditional liposuction.  

The procedure is performed in 3 steps and takes approximately 2 hours. First, through a 2 mm incision in the skin, local anesthetic is used to numb the treated areas. Next, a fiberoptic laser is inserted through the same openings to heat the skin and melt the fat. Finally, excess fat is gently suctioned away. Post-procedure, you will wear a compression garment (similar to a Spanx® Bodysuit) for about 2 weeks. Everyday activities like walking, going to the store, etc. are encouraged within a couple of days. Most patients are back to work after a weekend and back to normal workout routines in 2 weeks.
