What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo™ is a less invasive type of liposuction for both men and women that utilizes laser energy to liquefy fat before Dr. Erella extracts it from the targeted areas. The laser lipolysis process makes the fat easier to remove, resulting in less swelling, bruising, and trauma to the tissues. It also promotes collagen production, which will help tighten overlying skin and boost elasticity.

SmartLipo Advantages

It’s easy to see why many patients in Austin, Lakeway, and Bee Cave areas would consider SmartLipo™. Some of the fantastic advantages include:

Because the fat is dissolved into liquid form before being extracted through suction, there is less trauma to the adjacent tissue resulting in less pain and a shorter recovery period.

SmartLipo Treatment Areas

A delicate area to treat, SmartLipo gently treats this small sensitive area to define the jawline and resolve a double chin. With the added benefit of skin tightening, it can also deliver tight skin to avoid the unsightly turkey waddle.

Fat bulges, particularly around the arms, may resist the effects of diet and exercise. The skin tightening offered by laser treatment combined with liposuction allows SmartLipo™ to eliminate those fatty upper arms with sagging skin (bat wings).

Men will love the benefits of SmartLipo™ to eliminate chest fat for a more masculine, sculpted look. The chest is one of the most common areas men choose for this procedure.

This area on the back often develops tough tissue and fat that are challenging to remove. SmartLipo™ can deliver fantastic results not only for aesthetics but in reducing discomfort in this area while wearing bras or other tight-fitted clothing.

Many women struggle with how their abdominal area looks after having children. Although a tummy tuck can deliver excellent results, it is a surgical procedure that involves extensive healing and recovery. SmartLipo™ can eliminate excess and unwanted fat in this area to help resolve that belly pooch for a tighter, toned tummy.

Another area that collects unwanted fat after pregnancy is the lower body, including the hips, flanks, and love handles. Although this is normally a problematic area for traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ quickly and efficiently sculpts these trouble spots for a slimmer, bikini-ready figure.

The inner and outer thighs (saddle bags) are a natural area for stubborn fat. SmartLipo™ can smooth and tone your thighs to have them looking youthful once more.

The knees are areas that are perfect for SmartLipo™’s ability to remove fat and tighten the skin and make them look more defined.

What to Expect During SmartLipo

SmartLipo™ is laser-assisted lipolysis and extraction that targets trouble spots to eliminate stubborn fat permanently. It provides dramatic improvements, minimal downtime, and less discomfort than traditional liposuction. SmartLipo™ is an office procedure that requires only local anesthesia and numbs only the treatment site to reduce risk during the procedure.

During the procedure, Dr. Erella will insert a laser fiber into the target site. This laser will breakdown unwanted fat cells to destroy them permanently. Then, the liquefied fat is gently suctioned out with power-assisted liposuction. Because the SmartLipo™ technology triggers collagen regeneration through laser treatment, loose skin gets tightened and looks smooth.  Advanced SmartLipo™ triplex utilizes three wavelengths to disrupt fat cells, coagulate blood vessels, and increase collagen production to help improve skin elasticity. Skin tightening continues for 4-6 months.

SmartLipo Recovery

SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure with less pain, bruising, swelling, and a quicker recovery. Most SmartLipo™ patients enjoy a recovery in three days and can go back to their routine work. They will, however, require a compression garment for two weeks.
