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.

I work out and wanted to get areas done that working out could never get rid of. Everything went smoothly. Getting the local did hurt, the laser part did not hurt but getting the fat suctioned out did hurt a little. I was able to return to exercising in 7 days. It was worth it I see results already!

My decision to go down the smart lipo path started when a friend shared a link for cool sculpting on facebook. She swore by it. I looked into that, but there are no practitioners where I live, and it sounds like you need multiple treatments to make a difference. Too much travel. And it seems... 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
