Is smartlipo an effective cellulite treatment? My doctor told me that smartlipo is a very non-invasive cellulite treatment. How does smartlipo work, and can my doctor reduce the cellulite on my buttocks and thighs with this procedure?

Smartlipo is not a treatment for cellulite.
The only fda approved permanent treatment for cellulite is called cellulaze. It is a minimally invasive procedure. Few providers offer this amazing technology.

In brief: Smart

Smart lipo is a "franchised" liposuction "technique" used primarily by non-plastic surgeons who perform liposuction.
It in no way helps cellulite.
