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 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

I booked my smart lipo and BBL with Dr. Boutte... I've always wanted to get my body back after my last child 16yrs ago. I have been stalking realself for years and decided to go with Dr. Boutte after much thought and her before and after pictures are amazing. Not to mention a decent promotion... 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

I had lipo done on my inner thighs, they scheduled my appointment before I ever met with the doctor & I only met with him the day before the procedure. He marked off only the top area of my thighs and the bottom area around my knees, i explained that I was concerned because in my 2 prior... READ MORE

My goal was to lose a few pounds before but, things haven't worked out as planned! :( I didn't gain any weight but I do feel lighter more refreshed! I've been drinking green tea and loads of water.

I had smart liposuction performed by Dr. Boutte six weeks ago and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I've lost many inches off my waistline and can actually look down and see my feet!! I will admit there was some uncomfortableness after surgery that is to be expected but outside of... READ MORE

The best decision I have ever made! He listened to me and gave me the curvy look I wanted! After the procedure he made sure I was ok, he made sure his staff checked on me, and also gave me his PERSONAL cell phone just incase I had any questions, or concerns. What I like about him the most is... READ MORE

I have been to 4 doctors before deciding to proceed with American lipo. One nutty plastic surgeon who advised for a tummy tuck when I know i have no hanging skin and good elasticity. From all of them I can discern no particular difference other than pricing. Reviews for people with similar body... READ MORE

I'm a 22 year old who has a normal diet and live a pretty active lifestyle. I'm about 5'3 and 125lbs. But I've had a pouch on my lower tummy ever since I was 13. I played sports all through middle school, high school and college but the pouch is still there. I feel very insecure in a bathing... READ MORE
