In brief: Smartlipo

It is a brand of a LASER using Nd:Yag wavelengths (1064, 1320 or 1440 nm) delivered through a fiberoptic cable into the subdermal fat to destroy fat cells by thermolysis.
It is generally followed by conventional liposuction surgery. I emphasize, Smartlipo is the name of a brand of LASER made by Cynosure, not a surgical procedure. Find more info online and seek a well trained, qualified SURGEON.

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: 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.

In brief: SmartLipo is Laser

Smartlipo uses a laser to melt fat.
It requires local anesthetic, or sedation as it is an invasive technique. The melted fat is suctioned out and the laser can also be used to tighten the skin from underneath.
