Smartlipo is a lipolysis system developed by CynoSure®, a leader in the field of laser aesthetics technology. Dr. King offers Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction to reduce fat in problem areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise. Because Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure, it involves less pain, less bruising, and a faster recovery period than traditional methods of liposuction.

How does Smartlipo work?

Smartlipo treatments only require a local anesthetic to numb the area that Dr. King treats, so you’re awake for the procedure. It uses a cannula, or small tube, to deliver laser energy directly to your fat cells to permanently destroy them. Dr. King inserts the cannula through a small incision to liquefy fat cells and gently suction them out of your body.

Smartlipo is an in-office procedure that not only results in fat reduction, but also stimulates new collagen to help tighten your skin and improve elasticity in the treated area. In just a couple hours in the office, low discomfort, and minimal downtime, you get permanent fat reduction in those hard-to-treat areas with a single session.

What areas can I treat with Smartlipo?

Smartlipo works best for men and women who are close to their ideal weight and want to target specific areas for a more sculpted appearance, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Neck

A Smartlipo treatment provides a dramatic difference in the appearance of the treated area, so your clothes fit better and you have a more contoured body shape.

What can I expect after a Smartlipo treatment?

Since the Smartlipo fat-reduction procedure is minimally invasive, you can expect minimal downtime. You may experience slight bruising or swelling immediately following your appointment, but you can otherwise return to your usual activities a day or two after treatment. You wear a compression garment around the treated area for about a week to help the healing process and for added support.

You will see results within the first week and continue to see improvement over the next 3-6 months. Your fat cells are permanently destroyed and they won’t grow back in the treated areas. Maintaining a healthy weight and staying active also help you maintain your results in the long term.
