SmartLipo vs. Traditional Liposuction

SmartLipoIf you have localized areas of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, SmartLipo® may be the solution you’ve been looking for to finally achieve your ideal body. This state-of-the-art laser liposuction procedure may be used on almost any body part to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin. However, how exactly is it different from traditional liposuction? Here is what you need to know.

How SmartLipo Is Different From Traditional Liposuction


When it comes to modern liposuction procedures, SmartLipo is one of the least invasive options available because of its use of laser technology. The equipment consists of a sophisticated laser and a cannula (a small suction tube) with a temperature sensor.

SmartLipo employs laser heat to melt the fat for removal through the cannula. The laser means less pain and bruising than traditional liposuction procedures, which involve manual manipulation to break up the fat before suctioning it.

Improved Skin Elasticity

Increased collagen and skin tightening are other benefits that can be achieved with SmartLipo, but not with regular liposuction procedures on their own.

A typical liposuction procedure must be paired with other types of treatment to achieve the same increase in collagen production and skin tautness. Also, when performed on older individuals with less elastic skin, traditional liposuction might cause dimpling or sagging.

Safer Anesthesia

Extensive liposuction procedures often need general anesthesia, but SmartLipo requires only local anesthesia. When compared to general anesthesia, local anesthesia is often less expensive and safer.

Short Treatment & Recovery Time

Traditional liposuction patients are required to wear compression garments for about six weeks after surgery. SmartLipo patients, however, may benefit from a faster recovery time, with some reporting full recovery after only a few days. Moreover, the procedure itself is also shorter and generally more comfortable.
