SmartLipo is an advanced surgical body contouring treatment that combines traditional liposuction with laser technology to permanently remove unwanted fat in a single treatment.
What Is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo has the ability to remove stubborn pockets of body fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be performed using a local anesthetic.
SmartLipo is an advanced liposuction procedure that combines traditional tumescent technique with advanced laser energy. The SmartLipo laser melts targeted fat cells, making fat removal via tumescent liposuction easier and more effective, potentially requiring less downtime than traditional liposuction. The added laser energy also stimulates the production of collagen which give the treatment an added skin tightening benefit.
A SmartLipo procedure begins with the application of a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Once numb, a tiny cannula containing a laser fiber is inserted under the skin through tiny incisions. Laser energy is then delivered through the cannula to melt (liquefy) targeted unwanted fat. The laser fiber is subsequently removed and tumescent liposuction is performed – the liquefied fat is sucked out using the combination of the cannula and a high-powered vacuum. The procedure concludes with the incision being stitched up after the desired fat removal and contouring is achieved.
What Results Are Possible?
SmartLipo provides dramatic results in a single treatment. The procedure can be used to enhance a single area or transform the entire body’s silhouette. Experienced SmartLipo physicians are able to tone and contour body areas in order to give patients the body they’ve always wanted.

What Is Recovery Like?
SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure with a typically shorter downtime compared to traditional liposuction. Pain is moderate for the first 2-3 days following the procedure. Any discomfort during recovery can be treated with prescription pain medication. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days and moderate exercise can be resumed within 3-4 weeks.
Results can be seen as soon as a week after the procedure with continued improvement over several months. At the 6-week mark, most patients are fully healed and cleared for all forms of physical activity.
Here’s what some of our patients are saying about SmartLipo:
- “I am incredibly happy with my results so far. It’s only been two days and I know I have a while to go before the swelling goes down but I couldn’t be more satisfied with my results. Thank you so much to this facility and the staff for making me feel so at home, comfortable, and their understanding and kind attitudes.” Jennifer B.
- “Overall the experience of SmartLipo on inner/outer thighs and fat transfer to breast was great. I was very anxious about this entire process and waited 2 years to make the commitment, after researching and talking to all of your staff. I am now 5 days after surgery and very happy with everything. I know patience is a must for results, as explained by your staff. As I am in the entertainment business, doing live performances, commercials, soundtracks, etc., I have lots of friends and 3 sisters who are interested in my outcome. I highly recommended to everyone Westlake Derm, and to wait and see my results.” Christine S.
