SmartLipo Q&A

What is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo is a laser liposuction treatment that uses laser energy, rather than suction techniques, to remove unwanted fat. This liquefies the fat, making it easier to remove. 

Because fat cells expand when you gain weight, you don’t make new ones as an adult. This means the fat cells that Smartlipo removes typically won’t return, leaving you with long-lasting results and minimal side effects.

How does Smartlipo work?

Smartlipo is the first and most popular FDA-approved laser lipo treatment in the U.S. As a laser-assisted lipolysis procedure, Smartlipo uses laser energy to heat and liquefy unwanted fat cells.

Once you’re comfortable, Dr. Willis inserts the Smartlipo laser fibers through a cannula tube. He then gently moves the cannula back and forth to target your unwanted fat cells. This liquefies the fat, which ultimately drains out of your body through small incisions.

What makes Smartlipo unique is that its laser energy heats the deepest layers of tissue to naturally tighten and lift your skin along with removing unwanted fat.

What are the benefits of Smartlipo?

Smartlipo offers many important benefits over traditional liposuction, including:

  • Less bleeding
  • Minimal swelling
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Local anesthesia
  • Reduced cellulite
  • Less bruising
  • Minimally invasive
  • Skin tightening
  • Small incisions

Using Smartlipo’s gentle laser treatment, Dr. Willis can safely and effectively remove unwanted fat from your abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, back, the mons pubis (over the pubic bone), face, or neck.

Is Smartlipo right for me?

It’s important that you’re generally healthy and relatively fit before you undergo any type of fat removal procedure. 

Ideally, you should be within 25 pounds of your goal weight before your first Smartlipo treatment.

How many Smartlipo treatments will I need?

Most patients only need one Smartlipo treatment at New England Laser Lipo to get the results they want. Each treatment takes between 45 minutes and one hour, depending on the areas you want to treat.

Because Smartlipo removes your fat cells, if you gain weight it likely won’t return in the same areas that Dr. Willis treats.

You’ll typically notice your most visible results within 3-6 months of your first Smartlipo treatment. With a healthy diet and exercise routine, you can maintain your results long-term.
