Risks Associated with SmartLipo™

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

If you are in good health, within 25 pounds of your ideal weight, exercise regularly, and want to get rid of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, SmartLipo™ may be a good choice for you. However, if you suffer from, liver problems, blood disorders, kidney problems, heart problems, or skin disorders, this surgery may not be recommended.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with laser liposuction. Rare infection and/or hematoma, a collection of blood underneath the skin, can happen following this procedure. Some patients experience minor swelling and bruising. The possibility of burns exists due to the laser’s heat. Asymmetrical or lopsided results and minor scarring can be long-term risks involved with SmartLipo™, or any liposuction or surgical procedure

Choosing an experienced and reputable doctor can greatly decrease the possibility of any side effects and can lead to better results. Our Plastic Surgeon Finder can help you locate a plastic surgeon in your area who has been certified by the America Board of Plastic Surgery.
