Welcome to the SmartLipo™ Plastic Surgeon Directory the ultimate resource for SmartLipo laser liposuction facts.

Why SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a relatively new development in laser liposuction surgery. Patients undergoing a Smartlipo procedure need to familiarize themselves with the procedure, duration, benefits, risks, the evolving technology and more. SmartLipo™ Plastic Surgeon Directory is the right place to start your search for qualified plastic surgeons providing SmartLipo™ laser liposuction in your area, and other relevant details of the SmartLipo procedure.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is the newest technological advancement in the area of liposuction. It utilizes laser energy to selectively remove surplus fat from different parts of the body. Relatively pain free and minimally invasive, SmartLipo can provide more enhanced results than any other liposuction technique available.

Why Plastic Surgeons?

Plastic Surgeons as a specialty have a vast experience in body contouring procedures. They undergo highly technical training in liposuction as part of their educational curriculum and are uniquely qualified to provide Laser Assisted Lipolysis utilizing Cynosure's SmartLipo technology.

How does SmartLipo Work?

During the procedure, the surgeon inserts a long vacant tube called a cannula into the targeted fat pockets. The laser energy dispersed through the cannula liquefies the fat, which is aspirated out. The removal of fat cells is accompanied by collagen shrinkage.

SmartLipo—A REAL Breakthrough

Laser liposuction is indeed a breakthrough in the plastic surgery field. Two types of laser assisted liposuction were approved by the FDA in the mid 2000s. Of these, Cynosure's SmartLipo has been recommended more in terms of efficiency, compared to conventional liposuction.

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive treatment, highly effective for eliminating unwanted fat from your body. As laser energy is used to destroy fat cells, the size of the cannula required to remove fat cells is significantly smaller, and therefore the incisions are minute. The procedure is virtually painless, has fewer side effects and recovery is relatively fast. Another fact that makes this technique superior to traditional liposuction is its ability to tighten loose skin, thereby improving the body contour.

Are You a Qualified SmartLipo Candidate?

To be a candidate for SmartLipo, you have to be in good health with normal body weight, and excess fat deposits that just don’t yield to strenuous exercise or a rigid diet regimen. The surgeon should be convinced that you lead a healthy lifestyle and will respond to the treatment positively.

Your SmartLipo plastic surgeon will help you decide if you are an ideal candidate for SmartLipo. There are however, some aspects we can point out to give you a basic idea of this innovative procedure before you actually meet your SmartLipo doctor.

General Eligibility for SmartLipo™

Though many qualify for SmartLipo™ treatment some restrictions do apply. Here are some facts to consider.

Like many others, I had heard about the groundbreaking SmartLipo treatment and was considering getting some work done on my flabby upper arms. However, I was clueless as I didn’t know about any doctors who offered SmartLipo in my area – New York City. My friend told me about the SmartLipo™ Plastic Surgeon Directory and I decided to give it a try. I must say that I am grateful to the brilliant minds behind this directory for putting me in contact with Dr. Christopher T. Chia of Park Avenue Smart Lipo™.

Another thing, if I had any worries at all about the procedure, all of them were quelled because of the wealth of information that was available on the site and which helped me make up my mind. About the plastic surgeon - he seemed to work a kind of magic with his hands. He not only slimmed down my arms with SmartLipo but also gave them a smooth, beautiful shape.
