In brief: SmartLipo is Laser

Smartlipo is laser melting of fat.
Numbing is required with local and or sedation. Skin pokes are necessary to pass the fiberoptic cables. Fat is melted, then suctioned out. Then another fiberoptic laser cable is passed to tighten up the bottom of the skin. Sterile dressings and a compression garment finish the procedure.

In brief: Fat Reduction

SmartLipo is FDA approved laser assisted lipolysis.
It's a method of liposuction that uses a laser to melt the fat before removing it. The benefits of SmartLipo over traditional liposuction include faster recovery, less post op pain, skin tightening and the use of local rather than general anesthesia.
