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 workout 4 times a weeks and I could not get rid of my love handles. When I was smaller and had a flat tummy I still had love handles so I decided to get smart lipo. Smartlipo is great if you can wait a little bit for your true results to appear (swelling) it is affordable and easy. I am... READ MORE

So I'm not scheduled until for my procedure until early next week, but I'm starting to get both nervous and excited. As of today I am 5'5" and 172 pounds. I typically stay pretty steady at 165 pounds but I've been pretty stressed lately. I have one child so I do worry about loose skin. Talking... READ MORE

So I decided to get smart lipo on my flanks, upper and lower abdomen and back. I weighed 140 lbs 5'4. So far its been a week and I am very pleased. The swelling is going down and I massage every day softly with bio oil or cast or oil. I also take arnica and bromelain to help with the bruising.... READ MORE

Went in today for my preop and everyone was super friendly and helped me feel more comfortable. It's a big deal for me to be voluntarily going under the knife and I need to feel confident in the hands of my new creator. The surgeon was very professional and had a very calming aura about him. I... READ MORE

Hello RealSelf Dolls! I am a 32 year old, black female with 2 children, 12 years and 4 years old. I love my babies with all my heart but when I had my children, I lost a piece of me... my beloved figure. The end of last year I decided to go through with Smart "Laser" Lipo. I've contemplated this... READ MORE

I had a pooch. Dr. Gartner was kind - spent time with me explaining every step. His staff is wonderful.I am 3 days in and so far so good. Will definitely check back in a couple months to show progress.Took a peek before a shower and very impressed. Best part, it's only going to get better! READ MORE

I am 29 years old, fairly fit, and and about 130lbs. I have been contemplating SmartLipo for several months and will finally take the plunge in 7 days. My flanks or love handles have always been disproportionate where my left side is noticeably larger than my right side. I looked up different... READ MORE

Elected to have SmartLiposuction to correct cankles and a stubborn fat deposit on my lower abdomen. Facility was comfortable and staff was attentive and accommodating day of surgery. I was up and moving around the house easily on the same day of surgery. Post op appointment was prompt and I... 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 got smart lipo on my upper and lower abdomen, my flanks, and bra fat. It was an ok experience, not comfortable. They removed 4000 cc's of fat. I only drained 1 day. Right now I'm sore. I uploaded my before on my day of surgery and my day 7 photos. I laid on top of one of my pillows wrong and I... READ MORE

I'm a wife and mom of 2. Been short (5'3") and small (size 0-2) for most of my adult life even after my youngest child. I'm a NY'er so walking has always kept me straight. Moving to Atl changed my routine and I became significantly heavier. I looked and felt badly and exercise helped but not enough. READ MORE

So I had gotten smart Lipo triplex yesterday. I had done a lot of research on it and on my docter. I went to Mysurgeonforbeauty in Pearland, TX. My problem areas was abdomen, flanks(love handles), and my back. I only got my upper & lower abdomen and flanks yesterday decided to add my back at... READ MORE

I wanted a flatter stomach and to be able to wear a bikini by summer. I was told I was a perfect candidate for smart lipo. Needless to say the whole experience was a disaster. Red flag for me should have been raised when I didn't meet the Dr until 10 min before procedure. My optimism got me a... READ MORE

Let me be completely transparent here, I have had unwanted "fatty" areas that had bothered me all of my life! No matter how much exercise and diet those areas always made me very self conscious! I am not expecting immediate results but I am expecting a lifestyle modification post this procedure!... 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

I am having smart lipo done on my love handles, entire abdomen and the area under my bra and on my back. I am seeing Dr. Gupta and I am super happy so far with my experience. Consultation was great and his staff has been super helpful and friendly and they've answered all my questions. Today is... READ MORE

Let me first say this..... as a licensed professional in another industry, there is no way I could let anyone less then board certified operate on me so by my second consultation I was only looking for the right board certified plastic surgeon. I didn't even have to ask to see it Dr. Benjamin... READ MORE

I'm a mom of 6 5'6 152lbs pretty healthy. Due to the children, no matter how much exercise I do I still have fat around my abdomen. I went in for a consultation last month and they quoted me 10000 for abdomen and back bra area. That was way to much for me. I shopped around and found a place that... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Magge originally for a breast lift but need to hold off on that for several months since I just stopped breastfeeding. Though he originally recommended a tummy tuck, after seeing me for a second consult (as I wasn't even thinking of lipo when I first met him), he found that I... READ MORE
