Lipo Laser same as smartlipo

In general Laser Lipo is considered a form of liposuction where a laser is used to melt the fat and tighten the skin before liposuction is performed. This is a minimal invasive procedure where small incisions are made for the laser and suction cannulas to reach the fat. Smartlipo is one of the many brands of lasers that is used in laser lipo procedures. 

The term Lipo Laser is usually used to indicate a form of non-invasive fat reduction that doesn't involve liposuction and are usually not performed by a physician. Results of non-invasive fat reduction are usually not as impressive as liposuction procedures, but it depends on the skill and experience of the physician.

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring VS Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction can be dangerous in the wrong hands, technique and skill is everything. I find that ultrasound gives the most skin tightening and shaping.  Plus you can use the fat for augmentation of the buttock, chest, shoulders etc.  Best, Dr. Emer.
