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. This procedure may also be referred to as Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis or Laser Lypolysis.
