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 went in for consultation with Dr. Joffrey and it was quite an nice atmosphere and I was pretty sure he'd do a good job in my abdominal liposuction. But I was not satisfied with the results. Before surgery my tummy looked to be about 8-9 pounds of fat, I would say. But after surgery there was... READ MORE
