Smart Lipo (also referred to as laser liposuction) uses laser energy to liquefy fat before it’s removed from the body with a small tube called a cannula. In some cases, the doctor may not remove the fat, but allow it to be absorbed by the body and eliminated naturally. Like liposuction, it’s not intended to significantly reduce weight, but address fat that’s been resistant to diet and exercise. Some claim the treatment also tightens skin and leads to a faster recovery than other forms of lipo. LEARN MORE ›

I have read so many RealSelf reviews and gotten so much information out of them that I felt it only fair that I add mine. So here is my story. I am 46yrs, 5’2” and weigh 165. A year ago I went on Phentermine and lost 30lbs in 3 months. As soon as I went off the Phentermine I gained it all... READ MORE

I had Smartlipo with suction performed on my upper and lower abdomen 2 weeks ago and I have lost 2 inches off my waistline, and my belly "hangover" is gone. I have a hard bump/line under my ribs that extends across my abdomen. My Dr. says this will go away with time and massage. My... READ MORE

I decided to have smart lipo done on my upper and lower abdominals. I am also getting my flanks and genital area done. The doctor stated that if I didn't, that with time, fat would accumulate And I'd look like a man (down there...) I am extremely excited and scared at the same time. Here goes... READ MORE

I am in my early 50s. Some fat pockets would not go away no matter how much I worked out. This was a good thing to do (for me). I have been able to cut back on things like eating too many carbs, extra glasses of wine, etc. The combination of that and the procedure are making a big difference... READ MORE

I had a great experience with a very qualified doctor. The pain was minimal. my body healed very naturally. The only problem is I was quite thick around the middle and the results are not all that I had hoped for. I'm considering a revision on upper and Lower abs for a nominal price but I want...

I just had my surgery Feb 15, 2013. I am 2 weeks out. I feel good but really sore! Dr. Kortesis and his staff was awesome. They removed 15 pds of fat! I have always been concerned about my weight. I was up and down on my weight through diet and exercise. Reading Realself help to insure me that I... READ MORE

I am a 42 year old active woman. I work out 5 days a week and I follow a healthy lifestyle. My decision to investigate Smart lipo stemmed from the fact that there were areas on my body that would not respond to diet and exercise. I interviewed 3 different doctors and I did hours upon hours of... READ MORE

I'm in my thirties with 3 kids (just had my third not too long ago!), athletic, with the same trouble areas my whole life that got even worse after my babies. Just went in yesterday.

My doc explained the smart lipo was a less invasive way to achieve the results I was looking for: flat smooth tummy with out the pooch of fat surround the belly button. I had asked for a TT, but being little, he was worried about the scar placement. So I did it. And it looked worse instead of... READ MORE

Howdy Folks! I have been visiting another forum for about a week on this subject but I wanted to start my own forum as well to add another personal testimony for this particular area for SmartLipo. As with the other forum, I hadn't found many personal testimonials online about SmartLipo on... READ MORE

I have been going to this location for the past 2 years for a consult on Smart Lipo, but never could decide on what to do.

Well after two years of trying to convince my husband to get on board with this lipo business, he finally agreed two days ago! So in order to erase any chances of him changing his mind, I made my first appointment and say Dr Marciano at great neck spa today. The consultation was good. I had... READ MORE
