If you’re tired of the endless merry-go-round of exercise and dieting that’s effective, but just doesn’t get to those stubborn deposits of fat — we’ve got just the tool you need. Called Smartlipo®, this innovative system takes liposuction to the next level, delivering faster results with less downtime than traditional liposuction.
At Winnie King, MD Aesthetics and Wellness, we offer the very latest products and services that help our clients in the Shenandoah, Texas, area achieve their cosmetic goals with the least amount of disruption possible. Thanks to refinements in laser technology, we’re able to greatly improve upon our already effective treatment options.
In the case of Smartlipo, we can use this new laser technology to get you to your ideal body shape more quickly than ever before. Here’s how.
Out with the old
With traditional liposuction, we went into your target areas with small tubes called cannulas and loosened your fat, readying it for suction. While effective, this was an indelicate process that caused some considerable bruising and swelling. With Smartlipo, the system liquefies your fat using laser energy, allowing us to remove the fat more easily and more quickly.
In with the new
Called laser-assisted lipolysis, the first step in your Smartlipo procedure comes when we insert a cannula equipped with a laser fiber through a small incision. This fiber delivers thermal energy directly into your fat cells, making them easier to dislodge and remove.
Once your fat is liquefied, we use gentle suction to remove it, using a different cannula designed for this purpose. We can use this technique to remove fat from many trouble spots, including your:

The benefits of Smartlipo
There’s no shortage of benefits when it comes to our Smartlipo system. Let’s first start with the fact that we perform the procedure on an outpatient basis, which means you’re free to go home after the two-hour procedure. And some procedures take even less time depending upon the size and location of your treatment area.
You’ll have to take it easy for a day or two and wear a compression garment, but you shouldn’t experience the extensive bruising and swelling that often comes with traditional liposuction.
Next, because we’re using laser energy to heat up the tissue below the surface of your skin, your body responds with renewed collagen and elastin production, which will help tighten your skin around the treatment area. This added benefit of Smartlipo is important because it’s one thing to remove your fat, but quite another to ensure that your body reforms itself properly over your slimmer shape, which is what Smartlipo accomplishes.
Another benefit is that unlike noninvasive fat-reduction procedures, you only need one treatment with Smartlipo to permanently remove stubborn fat. There’s no waiting weeks in between appointments and watching for the gradual results. With Smartlipo, your path to your ideal body shape is a short one.
