SmartLipo Q & A

What is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive laser liposuction treatment that liquefies and removes fat deposits from areas of the body that are particularly resistant to diet and exercise alone. Common Smartlipo treatment areas include the hips, legs, stomach, upper arms, buttocks, neck or facial area, and the lower torso.

What is the difference between Smartlipo and traditional liposuction?

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive laser procedure, which typically causes less trauma to the body and therefore less bleeding, swelling, and bruising than traditional liposuction. Dr. Sachar performs SmartLipo under a local anesthetic, whereas traditional liposuction has to be performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. All these differences translate into a quicker, more comfortable recovery period than with traditional liposuction.

What are the benefits of Smartlipo?

Using laser technology to remove fat and contour your body provides many advantages, including:

  • IN OFFICE procedure, while you are awake and monitored with a light sedative
  • Minimal scarring
  • Removes fat permanently
  • Minimal recovery/downtime
  • No loose skin afterward
  • Can be performed under local anesthesia
  • Minimal discomfort, bruising, and swelling
  • Creates maximum results with minimal trauma to the body

What can I expect during a Smartlipo procedure?

Generally, Smartlipo procedures take less than an hour for each treatment area. Dr. Sachar gives you a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area(s) first.

Dr. Sachar then inserts the actual low-energy laser fiber into your body through a narrow tube. The heat from the laser breaks the fat cell membranes, destroying and liquefying the fat cells. The fat, now in a liquid form, is suctioned out. Since Dr. Sachar can easily target the treatment area with the laser, the surrounding tissue is generally unaffected.

During the procedure, you may feel some pressure. You should also expect some light bruising and swelling following the procedure. Dr. Sachar requires that you wear a compression garment for about a week following the procedure to aid the healing process and support the treatment area. You can resume normal activities in a day or two.
