In-office, permanent fat reduction.

Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction offers dramatic, smooth results on the abdomen, love handles, arms, legs, knees, and neck.

We've transformed more than 2,000 patients' bodies with Smartlipo.

More precise than traditional liposuction, Dr. Gustav Lo uses Smartlipo's laser technology to create the smoothest, most cosmetically elegant aesthetic shape.

How Smartlipo Works


2-hour, in-office procedure

First, through a 2 mm incision in the skin, local anesthetic is used to numb the area(s) to be treated.


Skin is heated & fat is melted

Next, a fiber optic laser is inserted through the same openings to heat the skin and melt the fat. Excess fat is gently suctioned away.


Back to work after a weekend

Post-procedure, you will wear a compression garment (similar to a Spanx Bodysuit) for about 2 weeks. Everyday activities like walking, going to the store, etc. are encouraged within a couple of days. Most patients are back to work after a weekend and back to normal workout routines in 2 weeks.

Because laser energy is used during the procedure, patients report much smoother results and significant skin tightening compared to traditional liposuction. The illustration below shows the difference between fat reduction with traditional liposuction and Smartlipo.

CSLC was the first in the Northern Michigan region to offer Smartlipo, and Dr. Gustav Lo has performed more than 2,000 Smartlipo procedures.

Traditional Liposuction
Fat's structure is "chunky" (no pun intended). Traditional liposuction is inelegant compared to Smartlipo. Fat is removed in large blocks, which leave behind a jagged, rough shape. So instead of a smooth curve to, say, your outer thighs, they're smaller but oddly shaped.

A combination of Smartlipo advanced technology (fat is melted, and skin is heated, both of which help ensure smoother results) and a precise, careful technique make it the choice for anyone who desires a smooth, beautiful, contoured body shape.
