What is the difference between SmartLipo and traditional liposuction?
During a traditional liposuction procedure, an incision is made in the area that is to be treated, then a small tube is inserted underneath the skin. This tube is used to break up fat and suction it out of the body.

SmartLipo uses a carefully calibrated laser to liquefy fat under the skin. Then the oily substance that used to be fat cells, is suctioned out of the body through a tube placed in a tiny incision.
What are the advantages of using SmartLipo?
SmartLipo comes with all the advantages of traditional liposuction—it can improve your appearance, make you feel better about yourself, make your clothes fit more comfortably, and make you look slimmer.

SmartLipo also offers additional benefits. Because a laser is used during the procedure, it can be used to seal blood vessels while fat is being zapped. This means that there is less swelling, bruising and bleeding.

Who is a good candidate for SmartLipo?
Liposuction is best for eliminating stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. If you are healthy and close to your ideal weight, SmartLipo can help you take your appearance to the next level.
Who should choose something else?
SmartLipo is not designed to help you lose weight. If you are looking for weight loss solutions, talk to your doctor about alternative treatments and lifestyle changes. Improving your diet and increasing your physical activity will help you shed extra pounds. After you’ve reached a healthy, stable weight, it may be time to reconsider SmartLipo.

What can you expect after the procedure?
SmartLipo offers immediate results and short recovery times. While you’ll likely see immediate results, you may also see continued improvements over the next month.

The procedure is safe, approved by the FDA, and minimally invasive. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure is complete. To learn more about SmartLipo schedule a consultation with Dr. Behr.
