Both the Smartlipo™ laser liposuction and LipoLite™ laser liposculpture techniques use a tiny (1mm) micro-cannula (metal tube) housing a smaller laser fiber which is inserted beneath the skin and directly into the fat layers. The laser energy acts to liquefy the fat cells, allowing them to be gently suctioned by cannula, while also helping to control the level of bleeding and providing a superior recovery. Additionally, the Smartlipo™ laser acts to contract and tighten the collagen in the overlying skin, providing a smoother and tighter look as the end result.
The tiny micro-laser is able to contour small areas that previously were difficult or impossible to treat, including the chin, neck, and upper arms. For larger areas (like the thighs, stomach, and back), where substantial fat removal is required, our liposuction specialists will often combine the Smartlipo™ procedure with traditional tumescent techniques in a ‘laser-assisted liposuction’ technique that achieves dramatic results and improved recovery.
The ideal laser liposuction candidate is generally in good health and within 30 lbs. of their ideal body weight. It is important to have a realistic expectation, as Smartlipo™ and LipoLite™ do not (at least alone) result in a significant level of weight loss, but rather provide body sculpting and are able to address stubborn fat deposits.
Smartlipo™ and LipoLite™ are unique methods of achieving precise fat removal through minimally-invasive laser/cannula systems. Millions of people turn to liposuction to address stubborn fat deposits, and now laser liposuction has raised the bar on safety and effectiveness. The 1064nm laser energy used in Smartlipo™ acts to simultaneously dissolve fat cells and coagulate blood vessels, allowing easier removal of fat via suction and less overall bleeding and trauma. In addition, the Smartlipo™ laser stimulates the contraction of collagen in the skin cells allowing for a tighter skin appearance in the end result.
