SmartLipo in Austin, TX | Fat Reduction in Round Rock | Aspira Plastic Surgery


Liposuction is growing in popularity with our Austin-area patients. The SmartLipo™ procedure can remove stubborn, unwanted deposits of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Traditional liposuction is an invasive procedure, and some patients may prefer or may be better suited for something less invasive such as SmartLipo.

That’s why SmartLipo™ is such an exciting innovation. With SmartLipo™, Dr. Erella can use a small, ballpoint pen-sized laser to liquefy fat cells, easing their removal, reducing downtime. If you live in Austin or any of the other nearby Texas communities and you want to learn more about SmartLipo™, please call Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa today at (512) 730-3885 or contact us online for a free consultation.

The SmartLipo™ treatment provides reduces trauma to the surrounding tissues compared to traditional liposuction.

Reduced Recovery

Because there is less trauma to tissues, there is also reduced recovery time, so you can get back on your feet sooner.

Skin Tightening

This treatment offers a skin tightening effect that is lacking in traditional liposuction, so you can enjoy sleek, tight body contouring.

What Areas Can Be Treated with SmartLipo™?

Upper Body

  • Arms
  • Chest & Abdomen
  • Chin & Jowls

If you’ve never been able to get rid of the stubborn fat on your upper arms, SmartLipo is the perfect solution for giving you slim, sculpted arms.

If you have excess pockets of fat on your chest (commonly in men with gynecomastia) or abdomen, SmartLipo is the easy way to say goodbye to those pockets for good.

The chin and jowl area can be stubborn to sculpt, and people who struggle with this may even be relatively fit but these areas aren’t responding to exercise. SmartLipo can gently and effectively treat small areas such as these.

Lower Body

  • Hips & Love Handles
  • Knees & Thighs

The hips and “love handle” area is a stubborn area of concern for many patients. SmartLipo can sculpt and slim down these areas that cause patients frustration when trying to get fit.

If the thighs are not shaping up the way a patient wants with diet and exercise, this can also make the knees look droopy from the excess fat above it on the thighs.

  • Recovery
  • Scars
  • Cost
  • Pain

Most patients who are good candidates for liposuction are also candidates for SmartLipo™. You should be in good health, at or near your ideal body weight and be looking to tighten skin with minimal downtime. While each patient’s results will vary, SmartLipo™ results are often apparent within a few weeks after the procedure, but you should expect full, final results to take a few months to show.

Since SmartLipo has less of an effect on the surrounding tissue, scarring is greatly reduced in comparison to traditional lipo and other body procedures. SmartLipo will be completed with minimal incisions that are inconspicuous once healed.

The cost of a SmartLipo procedure varies based on the treatment area practice and the technique used. A consultation with Dr. Erella is the best way to determine the cost of your liposuction procedure.

Unlike SmartLipo, traditional liposuction can cause trauma to surrounding tissue, as well as bruising and swelling while requiring a more substantial recovery time. SmartLipo requires less time and causes less pain and bruising to the patient.
