Find Out How SmartLipo Liposuction Works

How Does SmartLipo™ Work?

Reviewed by Dr. David E. Berman, MD, FRCSC

Traditional liposuction involves the use of a large cannula to suction out large pieces of fat that are broken up by blunt force. Traditional liposuction can result in substantial bruising and a longer recovery period as the body heals from the disruption. SmartLipo™ differs from traditional liposuction in that it uses tumescent fluid to numb the areas to be treated then uses a calibrated laser to liquefy fat deposits. The resulting liquid fat is then suctioned out through a small incision in the top layers of the skin. The laser also seals blood vessels during the process, which causes less swelling, bleeding, and bruising than traditional liposuction. SmartLipo™ can be particularly effective to touch up areas previously treated by traditional liposuction. This procedure may also enhance skin tightening.
