In brief: Laser Liposuction
Smartlipo is a laser assisted liposuction.
Traditional liposuction is performed as well as a treatment with a triple wavelength laser. This results in increased skin contraction, less bruising, and quicker recovery. The amount of skin contracture is amazing, specially in the arms and neck.

In brief: A clever name
....For laser-assisted liposuction.
Remember, the choice of the right surgeon is far more important than the choice of the liposuction device.

In brief: Laser Liposuction
Smart lipo is virtually painless and highly effective at removing unwanted body fat.
Smart lipo uses a laser to eliminate these cells. The laser can easily differentiate between fat cells and other tissue such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, etc. Once the smart lipo laser dissolves the fat cells, they are simply suctioned out of the body.

In brief: SmartLipo
Smartlipo is a laser based liposuction where a tiny incision is made in the skin and a small laser fiber destroys the fat cell and causes the skin to retract.
It is the most effective form of liposuction as well as the least painful. Be careful though... Many centers advertise smartlipo without actually owning the device. To find a provider click on this link: http://www.Cynosure.Com/patients/.

In brief: Brand Name
Smart lipo is the brand name that a particular laser company calls it's laser assisted liposuction machine.
It is simply the name of a piece of equipment, not a technique.

In brief: Smart lipo
Uses a laser to heat subcutaneous tissue and liquify the fat.
I do not see any advantage over traditional liposuction in my hands, it costs more because lasers are expensive, less area can be done, and the downside pain or discomfort is not any different.

In brief: Fat Reduction
SmartLipo is an FDA approved technique for laser assisted lipolysis.
In simple terms 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. www.OmahaCosmeticSurgery.com

In brief: Laser
Smart lipo involves the use of a laser to heat the skin from beneath in an attempt to stimulate the skin to contract and tighten.
Liposuction (fat removal) is then done before or after use of the laser.
