Smartlipo: Gentle, Safe, Effective Liposuction in Los Angeles

Smartlipo differs from other liposuction approaches in its use of a technology called ‘laser lipolysis.’ The small cannula, or tube, introduced through short incisions, contains a fiber that delivers laser energy to fat cells under the skin. The cells rupture and release liquid fat, which is either removed immediately or left for the body to eliminate through natural processes.

Just like other methods of liposuction, such as power assisted liposuction and tumescent liposuction Smartlipo removes fat cells permanently. Because it takes a gentle approach, most patients require only local anesthesia and surgical time is often reduced. The laser also seals blood vessels and stimulates skin to tighten, speeding healing time.

Smartlipo is a flexible technique. It can be used on its own to treat localized pockets of fat cells. Our doctors also use it in combination with other methods of liposuction for Beverly Hills and Los Angeles patients — to get access to small, difficult to treat areas, for example. Smartlipo can also be a way to fine tune results after another procedure.

The benefits of Smartlipo include:

  • Shorter, Safer Procedures
  • Local Anesthesia
  • Reduced Swelling and Bruising
  • Less Discomfort
  • Faster Recovery
  • Treats Difficult Areas
  • Tightens, Tones Skin
