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 ›

This is my story; I have been always relying on online reviews when deciding on new products as well as choosing doctors, restaurants, clothes, and pretty much everything, but I'd never written a review myself before. Today, however, I did get a strong urge to write one, and here I am telling... READ MORE

I have been researching the option to get either a mommy make-over or Liposuction for a long time now.I tried the i-Lipo procedure about 2 years ago and wasn't pleased at all...spent over $600 for 4 treatments and only lost 3 inches off the waist/abs. Nevertheless, I made the decision to... READ MORE

I started off with a tummy tuck and breast reduction. I was happy with my tummy tuck but the breast reduction was not as much reduced as I had hoped sooooooo the doctor offered to lipo the breasts to reduce further.

I had smart lipo done around 8 something this morning. I got my waist upper abdomen & lower & bra rolls. The only thing that hurt was the bra roll section, besides that I didn't really feel anything. Right now the numbing med that they inject is wearing off & the pain is kicking in. It is... READ MORE

Dr. Okoro and his staff are awesome and I highly recommend him. He has great bedside manner, is very professional, and an artist when it comes to sculpting. 2 days post op and I could barely see any of the incision wounds. My arms and tummy are shaped perfectly and the pain was minimal. The... READ MORE

First I would like to say realself reviews really made me comfortable going into my appointment. When I went into my appointment, I knew what to expect so I was really comfortable right off the back. It took me about 2 years to decide that I wanted to do smart lipo. I previously did cool... READ MORE

I had a lot of reservations, first about spending 10k plus on something, second would I get results, third that I wouldn't have regrets, along with many other. I am 4 days post opp, so far, I'm absolutely ecstatic that I took this leap. I'm relatively small, 125 lbs going into surgery with areas... READ MORE

I am SO excited to FINALLY be doing this after about half my life being unhappy with my chin / neck / jawline and lower face area. I went for a consultation with Cosmos Clinic on the Gold Coast at the end of August and booked in for 5 October. I am a bit apprehensive as the procedure does seem... READ MORE

I'm posting my BEFORE and POST 3 months photos all at the same time today. *Overall satisfaction of procedure is 50/50. My upper and lower... READ MORE

Finally decided to get smart lipo on my abdomen. I have been contemplating getting something done for a long time. I want to look better in clothes and not have to try to hide my tummy. I have a scheduled procedure for August 28. I am nervous because I have a low tolerance to pain. I will update... READ MORE

My appt has to be pushed forward a little bit because the doctor will be out of town. :-( I am disappointed about having to wait but I am still looking forward to it. Hopefully we can reschedule for the following Friday and I will have another week to wait for my compression garment to arrive. ... READ MORE

Very excited! I go October 20th for my smart lipo on my abdomen, flanks and bra rolls and can't wait to see the results. I work out a lot but that's always where the weight stays. I have a lot of subconscious fat so my doctor says this will be very beneficial for me. Hoping to get the stomach... READ MORE

I am hoping to eliminate my double chin in pictures and have my jawline more pronounced. I feel like my face has gotten fuller since my tummy tuck (from another Dr), review For the arms, I am hoping they will appear thinner and less flabby. Obviously the right is a lot "chunkier" so getting... READ MORE

From the beginning when I decided that I would get this procedure done I knew I wanted Dr. Boutte to be the one who would perform it. This process has been a journey for me because when I first wanted the procedure done in late 2011. I could not have it done because I had some blood pressure... READ MORE

I am a member of the armed forces. And every 6 months, we must take a physical fitness test. One component of that test is a waist measurement. For a female, your waist can be no more than 35.5". I have always had a bit of a belly, and now that I am over 40, my measurement was creeping up to the... READ MORE

I lost 7 inches in my waist. My waistline is "SNATCHED". I review compliments almost everyday on my body contour READ MORE

I just had the procedure yesterday, so that's why I marked it not sure. My procedure from start to finish was about 10 hours. Lots of prep and I wanted to do it without drugs, just local anesthia. Long day, but feeling pretty good. I am truly able to go about my life today other than the... READ MORE
