Smartlipo is the first laser system designed for Laser Body Sculpting and for the disruption of fat cells. Those who are looking for an easy way to eliminate stubborn fat may want to try Smartlipo in NYC.
It is ideal for treating localized deposits of unwanted fat, fat tissue irregularities and for coagulating tissue leading to a tightening effect.
How does the Smartlipo work?
Smartlipo laser lipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. The procedure disrupts the fat cells by melting them and coagulating the underlying vessels, resulting in less bleeding, bruising, trauma as well as less down time. As an added benefit, the system promotes tissue and skin tightening.
The procedure is commonly performed under local anesthesia. A laser fiber is introduced into a small cannula. The cannula is then inserted through a tiny incision in the skin and into fat pockets. The cannula, with the tip of the fiber exposed approximately 2 mm, is then moved in a back and forth fanning motion in the fatty layer. The laser’s aiming beam can be visualized through the skin, allowing the physician to clearly see the treatment area. As the fiber tip comes in contact with the fat cells it ruptures the cell membranes and releases the fatty oil from the fat cells. This end product may then be aspirated from the site. The entire Smartlipo process typically takes less than an hour for each target area.

Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?
The Smartlipo has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted lipolysis.
Does laser-assisted lipolysis produce lasting results?
Yes! The Smartlipo procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells. Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, that person’s fat cells simply expand. Should you gain weight, that fat will most likely be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
Ideal candidates are in good health, close to normal body weight and have realistic expectations. If the person has areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then that person is a candidate for laser-assisted lipolysis.
What should you expect at a Smartlipo consultation?
At the initial consultation, patients will sit down with the physician to talk about their cosmetic concerns, goals, and available options. The physician will tell the patient about the Smartlipo treatment process in detail. The physician will also examine the areas targeted for treatment and will look over the patient’s complete medical history.
How many treatments are required?
For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated.
What is recovery like?
The recovery for Smartlipo is relatively shorter and less severe compared to traditional liposuction. Still, there may be mild discomfort and a little bruising, and patients often need to file for leave from work to recover. Doctors advise patients to follow a low-sodium diet, avoid strenuous activities, and rest.
The doctor may require patients to manage the swelling by wearing a compression garment for a month or two. Patients may also need to take antibiotics. Most Smartlipo patients resume work after a few days, but it will take two weeks to return to all normal activities.
The effects of Smartlipo can be seen right after the surgery, but the full results will not be apparent until a few months later.
How much does Smartlipo cost?
The cost of Smartlipo differs depending on how much excess fat needs to be removed. The size and number of targeted areas also matter. The final price is usually part of the discussion during the consultation.
