What is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo is a groundbreaking innovation in liposuction technology. This advanced liposuction system is effective on almost any area of the body, including double chin fat, and fat deposits on neck, arms, back, thighs and abdomen.

How Does Smartlipo Work?

Smartlipo uses an advanced laser technology to heat and liquefy fat cells for efficient fat removal, along with a gentler fat extraction method. Smartlipo treatments have an added benefit: the treatments trigger natural collagen production in the treated area for improved skin elasticity and results that are firmer and smoother than what can be achieved with traditional lipo.

Smartlipo vs. Liposuction

Smartlipo differs from liposuction in several key ways:

  • Smartlipo involves the use a laser to heat and liquefy fat so it is freed from the surrounding tissue and more easily extracted. This technique provides a smoother result than traditional liposuction.
  • The use of laser energy during Smartlipo stimulates natural collagen production in the tissues in the treated area for improved skin elasticity and a smoother outcome.
  • Smartlipo reduces the likelihood of bruising and bleeding as the laser energy closes the small blood vessels and capillaries in the area being treated.
  • Traditional liposuction poses a risk of leaving the skin surface lumpy or uneven, particularly if the patient’s skin lacks elasticity. Smartlipo reduces the likelihood of an uneven or lumpy result.
  • Smartlipo uses a smaller cannula or probe for smaller incisions, and faster healing.
  • Smartlipo has a shorter recovery time, and the need to wear a compression garment for less time. Regular liposuction may require a recovery time of several weeks or more before the bruising and swelling subside.
  • The results from Smartlipo are visible within the first few days. Traditional liposuction often takes weeks before results are achieved, due to extensive swelling and bruising.

Am I a Candidate for Smartlipo?

A candidate for Smartlipo is in good general health and is within 30 pounds of an ideal weight. If you want to reduce fat deposits that are not responding to diet or exercise, such as love handles, fat below the chin or fat on the upper thighs, abdomen, upper arms, or back, Smartlipo may be the answer. As Smartlipo is minimally invasive, it is safe for the majority of patients. The best way to determine SmartLipo is right for you is to schedule a private consultation at Northside Plastic Surgery.

What is the Recovery Time from Smartlipo?

The recovery time after Smartlipo varies from patient to patient, from a day or two, or up to a week. When several body areas have been resculpted, a few more days of recovery is expected. Some treated areas may require wearing a compression garment for a short period after treatment. That being said, the recovery time with Smartlipo is far less than is experienced with traditional liposuction treatments.

Patients can expect to return to work or their normal daily routine within the first few days after the procedure. Depending on the areas treated, it may be suggested to refrain from strenuous activities for one to two weeks after the treatment. Our board-certified plastic surgeon and our professional medical team can help you finally achieve a trimmer, fitter, more sculpted shape with Smartlipo treatments.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
