What is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo is an FDA-approved form of laser-assisted lipolysis or cosmetic surgery used to alter the shape and appearance of a person’s body. Unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo is an in-office procedure that combines heat and laser energy to break fat cells apart and smooth and tighten the skin.
How does Smartlipo work?
Before the procedure, prospective patients are encouraged to book an introductory consultation to discuss goals, expectations, potential benefits, and possible risks of the procedure.
A person who has mild to moderate skin laxity (loose or sagging skin) or unwanted fatty tissue on their abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks may be a good candidate for Smartlipo. Although minimally invasive, this procedure is not recommended for people who are obese or have excessively loose skin.
A person’s treatment eligibility is determined by a number of factors, including:
- general medical history
- current medications
- medical issues/pre-existing conditions
- drug allergies
- previous surgeries
Prospective patients may be photographed, as well. These photos will serve as a reference point for follow-up appointments.

Traditional Liposuction vs Smartlipo
Smartlipo is similar to traditional liposuction in that it’s a procedure meant to get rid of excess fat. However, unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo is less traumatic (traditional liposuction uses a cannula and physical manipulation whereas Smartlipo utilizes laser energy to liquify fat cells), promotes the growth of collagen for tighter, smoother skin, and has a shorter recovery time.
