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. LEARN MORE ›

I did the smart lipo in July. Now it's November. I still have a big dent on my right inner thigh. Doctor told me to wait until Dec for my fat and skin to settle. He keeps telling me it will get better. But I don't see any changes other than the dent. I think it's a permanent damage. It looks... READ MORE

I just had my procedure today. I had smart lipo in the chin/neck/jaw area. The procedure went really well. I didn't get put to sleep. I remember the surgery, and the doctor doing the procedure. I was really "out of it" though. The room was dizzy, I could not focus on anything for too long, but... READ MORE

Ever since my late 20's when I began to gain weight, I started getting this chin fat. I find it gross looking and embarrassing. I went for a consultation 10 years ago (age 37) and the doctor said come back in 5-10 years. I can't remember his exact reasoning at the time. I remember him saying I... READ MORE

I was very unhappy with the fat in my belly, which doesn't look better after diet and exercise. I'm a very fussy person with my body and I knew I would never be satisfied until I had this fat removed and gone. I know it was not too much fat, but enough to make me feel insecure. I took the...

I contemplated having lipo to my abdomen first, but decided to go with my arms first (as they are my most bothersome area). My primary goal is to just be able to wear sleeveless shirts without...
