What is Laer Lipo / Smartlipo™?
Smartlipo™ is a laser liposuction system which disrupts fat cells in the body and coagulates skin tissue, which leads to skin tightening. During the Smartlipo™ procedure, a small 1-mm cannula fitted with a laser is inserted in the treatment area. The fat cells treated with Smartlipo™ rupture and are suctioned away, leaving a more slender body contour behind. SmartLipo MPX is the latest of Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis Machines. With SmartLipo MPX surgeons having the choice of using a higher power laser to adequately treat the resistant fat areas.
Please note: There are many manufacturers of laser lipolysis equipment. SmartLipo is the industry leader in terms of safety and efficacy. SmartLipo MPX is their latest technology and very few places actually offer this technology due to its high cost. Ask for SmartLipo MPX by name.

What benefits does Laser Lipo / Smartlipo™ have over traditional liposuction?
The whole Smartlipo™ procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, unlike traditional liposuction, which typically requires general anesthesia. Traditional liposuction sometimes leaves loose skin in areas where fat is removed. This problem is eliminated with Smartlipo™, which stimulates collagen retraction. During the recovery period, skin will tighten over the treated area. Smartlipo™ patients experience minimal scarring and a shorter, more comfortable recovery period. No stitches are needed because the incision site is smaller than in traditional liposuction.

Up to 8 pounds of fat can be removed with Smartlipo™. Treatment should not be used for weight loss, but rather to sculpt the body into a more pleasing shape.
