What Makes Smartlipo Different?
Liposuction using Smartlipo is laser-assisted. Fat cells are liquefied by the laser prior to removal. Melting the fat cells leads to a more efficient and less invasive fat removal process. Smartlipo may also be used under the skin in certain body areas in order to promote skin tightening after fat removal.
Common Smartlipo Treatment Areas
Smartlipo can be performed on most areas of the body where isolated pockets of fat are present, including:
- Thighs, knees, and legs
- Back and flanks
Sometimes, Smartlipo is used in conjunction with other surgical techniques to reshape a particular area. For a protruding abdominal area, Smartlipo may be combined with a tummy tuck for optimal body contouring results. Smartlipo may be combined with male breast tissue removal to treat gynecomastia.
A thin cable houses the Smartlipo laser fiber. The cable is inserted through a small, discreetly placed incision. Using the Smartlipo laser, Dr. Chatson prepares the fat for removal. Fat cells are liquefied by the laser, and then the fat is easily removed with an efficient, thin caliber power-assisted liposuction technique.
In some cases, the Smartlipo procedure requires only local anesthesia, allowing you to remain conscious but numbed throughout your liposuction. When multiple body areas are treated with Smartlipo, general anesthesia is usually preferred. Whether or not general anesthesia is required, recovery from Smartlipo is generally rapid and involves moderate discomfort.
Advantages of Smartlipo™
Dr. Chatson has found Smartlipo to be the most beneficial liposuction technique for his patients. For Smartlipo candidates, this liposuction technique provides ideal body-contouring results while minimizing surgical trauma and post-operative pain. Other advantages of Smartlipo include:
- Outstanding aesthetic results
- Minimally invasive

Smartlipo is most beneficial to women and men with isolated deposits of fat. Despite regular exercise and healthy eating habits, these pockets of fat do not shrink or go away. Smartlipo can fine tune the contours and profile of your body by treating these fat deposits. If you continue to pursue a healthy lifestyle after Smartlipo, the results of your procedure will remain.
