Smart Lipo is a variation on traditional liposuction that uses laser energy to liquefy fat before it's removed through a thin tube called a cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove, making Smart Lipo a less aggressive procedure that may have a faster recovery timeline. In areas with thin layers of fat, like the face and the neck, the cannula might not be used at all. In this case, the liquefied fat is absorbed and naturally eliminated by the body. The procedure is not intended to significantly reduce weight, but to address fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise.

I began my research for Lipo with Fat Transfer about a year ago. I went on many consultations, but nothing felt right. No one really made me feel comfortable.

So, I apologize up front for being a little lengthy. My journey started in November 2014. I was due to get married in April 15, and looked into getting lipo in my lower abs.

Since 16, I have refused to show my legs. I've always been bottom heavy but when I work out my thighs become sharply and toned but I always felt my lower legs were disgusting. They had no shape and went straight up and down and I had fatty pockets rings just about the ankle. Growing up was... READ MORE

Hi everyone! My surgery is scheduled for March 26th at Athenix in Pasadena, and I'm feeling a mix of excitement and sheer anxiety. I'm about 15lbs over my normal weight (165lbs at the moment) and though I work out often, my waist remains wide no matter how thin I've been in the past. It's... READ MORE

I decided to finally tackle my insecurity with my face. I've always had a little bit of fat around my jawline and I hated how it made me look bigger than my actual size. I originally looked into coolsculpting because it wasn't invasive but I wasn't happy with the long wait time for results and... READ MORE

So, here goes. I'm 29 and I have that box body on lock. I've always had weird love handles. They are, I guess tall flanks? Muffin top? Regardless, they give me a boxy, short-torso look. I have always had this shape even at my thinnest. I was 125lbs before I had my son and am 145lbs now. I'd like... READ MORE

I have always gained weight in my arms and calves and I hated it! I felt as though my arms and calves made me look heavier than I was, and losing weight in these areas was virtually impossible. When I read about Smart Lipo used on these areas I started saving money. I found two doctors in the... READ MORE

I went to a few doctors for consultations on getting Kybella for my long-abhorred double chin. It was getting worse with age and when I looked at what my Dad's turkey neck/jowls has become I knew I had to take action now. I have never had a chin and always have had a version of a double chin... READ MORE

She and her staff are amazing. Had a few scheduling hicups but overall the experience is worth it. Best... READ MORE
