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 ›

Today was my surgery. Nervous as can be. Being Awake!!!! Not what I wanted but the pill was suppose to relax... READ MORE

Hi everyone, Last year I had a breast reduction and lipo to inner thighs and arms. Right away I knew I wanted to have a flater stomach, but after realizing that I did not want to go through a tummy tuck (limited time off, coupled with my job being pretty stressful). My friends had good... READ MORE

I am going to Dr. Boutte at the end of the month to have smart lipo on my upper and lower abd, flanks, bra roll, and lower back. I havent had any contact with the Dr which I do feel is weird.

I am currently prepping for surgery with Dr. Windell Boutte'. She came highly recommended and there are many photos to prove her work is great. I've been to a few other plastic surgeons and all stated I needed to have a tummy tuck. While I agree with these consultation recommendations, I believe... READ MORE

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

Before I had kids I had a "perfect "body in my eyes. I was very athletic and worked out 3-4 days a week and always had a pretty good diet. I watched what I ate but I wasn't a fanatic about it. After I had my first son I noticed that I had problem areas that would not go away with exercise ... READ MORE

I used Real Self as my main source of information in order to find the best and most qualified board certified plastic surgeon in the TRI-state area. Dr. Breitbart was amazing. I highly recommend him and plan to go back to him in the future. He is rather soft spoken and gentle and an... READ MORE

I had lipo done on my inner thighs, they scheduled my appointment before I ever met with the doctor & I only met with him the day before the procedure. He marked off only the top area of my thighs and the bottom area around my knees, i explained that I was concerned because in my 2 prior... READ MORE

My goal was to lose a few pounds before but, things haven't worked out as planned! :( I didn't gain any weight but I do feel lighter more refreshed! I've been drinking green tea and loads of water. Not... READ MORE

Ive been a patient of Dr. Boutte for several years. Our relationship began when she was my dermatologist and I have been fortunate enough to see her establishment grow and flourish. I recently made the decision to have smart lipo for the 2nd time. The first procedure was successful, however... READ MORE

I had smart liposuction performed by Dr. Boutte six weeks ago and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I've lost many inches off my waistline and can actually look down and see my feet!! I will admit there was some uncomfortableness after surgery that is to be expected but outside of... READ MORE

I'll probably go back and get my arms and back done depending grow much I love music results. I had my daughter really young so I always had... 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

The best decision I have ever made! He listened to me and gave me the curvy look I wanted! After the procedure he made sure I was ok, he made sure his staff checked on me, and also gave me his PERSONAL cell phone just incase I had any questions, or concerns. What I like about him the most is... READ MORE

I have been thinking about this even before I had children. I work very hard to stay in shape, but somehow I cannot achieve the look I want. So I did some research and found Dr. Arnold Breitbart and other doctors but ultimately chose him because of his awesome reviews. The consultation was as... READ MORE
