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.

Just had my surgery done yesterday and I could not be happier! Dr. Saul is the best! He's funny, laid back but super professional.

I am currently prepping for surgery with Dr. Windell Boutte'. She came highly recommended and there are many photos to prove her work is great. I've been to a few other plastic surgeons and all stated I needed to have a tummy tuck. While I agree with these consultation recommendations, I believe... READ MORE

I've always had a "Dora the Explorer" shape, no matter how in shape I've been. I wanted some curves to me, and I wanted the bulk of my midsection defined.

I love it. I was awake when I got my smart Lipo done. She took her time with me. She took out more ccs then she thought she wouldnt be able to take out. It tickled me a little because I was awake.

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
