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 am having surgery next Thursday. Excited and nervous at the same time. I called Sono Bello to make an appointment and the whole Process was really quick. Weird thing is I went to another consultation with another doctor and he told me that I couldn't do smart lipo until I dropped some more... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Fryer for smartlipo on my upper arms. After years of considering surgery I finally pulled the trigger and decided to go for it. I wish I would have done it sooner, although waiting was worth it as technology has improved. The results have far exceeded my expectations...even though... READ MORE

Consultation I'm so excited my Smart lipo consultation is two weeks away (1/20/15). I've been thinking about getting this procedure for the last year now. I've always been very active but since I've had a baby, the weight particularly my mid-section has been hard to get rid of. I'm still very... READ MORE

Well, I am not sure this was worth it. At 7 weeks post-op, there is a pocket/line of dropping skin right under my chin. In addition, my left side is either still swollen or for some reason is fattier than my right. I am 7 weeks post-op and went to see the surgeon today about my concerns. He... READ MORE

My upper arms began getting large when I was about 17 years old, I recall sitting in Language Arts and the guy behind me asked me why my arms are so big... I joined a gym that month and began trying to work on my body. Although I dropped a few sizes, my arms remained large, and have stayed large... READ MORE

I've always been up and down with my weight, but once I lost the weight in middle school I was fine all through out high school and beginning of college. I gained 40 pounds two summers ago and have been working out and eating right. I've tried sooo many different things with personal trainers,... READ MORE

I wanted to write my review because I haven't seen many on here with loose skin before the procedure. 2 years ago I weighed in at 240 pounds. I lost weight rapidly and I've kept it off. I currently weigh 149 and I'm 5'5. I exercise rigorously and eat well but I haven't been able to get over my... READ MORE

After yet another holiday hiding my horrible legs and fed up looking at women around the pool twice the size of me, with nicer shaped legs, I had had enough. I came home and went online to see exactly why no matter what I did, I couldn't change the shape of my legs. It would seem that I had... READ MORE

Very excited and nervous. had consultation yesterday and loved Crystal's bedside manner, made me feel even more ecstatic about my transformation.

Feeling very nervous about my procedure tomorrow. I went for a consultation with Dr. Boutte in March and met with Crystal who was very nice. She went over all of the details of the surgery with me and answered all of my questions. I wanted to meet with Dr. Boutte personally so that I can see... READ MORE

I am a very active person - exercising 5-6x wkly. However, I had stubborn fat deposits on my flanks, hips and inner thighs that just would not go away no matter how much I worked out. During my initial consultation with Dr. Poulos (for a breast augmentation) I asked about adding on Smart Lipo... READ MORE

I'm 5'4" and 113 lbs. very small on top but have had wide thighs since I was little. I workout 6 days a week and my bottom half just doesn't match the top. I'm super nervous as I don't want ripples or dents and but really would love to finally have legs that look like legs not stumps. I barely... READ MORE

After about a year of researching Smart Lipo, as apposed to a thigh lift, I decided it was the best choice for me at this time. My inner thighs rub together when I exercise, or am just out of the shower and it hurts! Regardless of the amount of exercise I do (triathlete) my lower half never... READ MORE

Although, I'm pretty sore I am so glad that I finally did something for myself. Didn't do too much on day 2 but on day 3 I was able to cook breakfast and wash dishes. One thing that bothers me is the itching. Yes! I know it's part of the healing process. The Benadryl has helped some. I'm very... READ MORE
