What are the Benefits of SmartLipo vs. Liposuction?

If you’ve shied away from the idea of undergoing liposuction surgery – even if you’d love to get rid of those stubborn bits of body fat – you’re not alone. There are plenty of people who dislike the idea of getting liposuction for a number of reasons. For example, some people find the excessive bruising to be intimidating, while others may worry about loose skin once the fat tissue has been removed.

No matter what your reasons for avoiding traditional liposuction, there’s a new option out there that can help you get rid of excessive fat without invasive surgery: SmartLipo!


SmartLipo is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive surgical procedure that approaches liposuction from a different angle: instead of manually destroying fat tissue, SmartLipo uses laser heat energy to liquefy fat. This type of procedure has the following benefits:

  • It can be performed under local anesthesia
  • It minimizes the amount of bruising and swelling post-recovery
  • It speeds up the recovery process, meaning you can return to your normal routine faster

In addition to the above benefits, SmartLipo helps tighten skin in the treatment area. Here’s how it works: as the laser heat energy liquefies the fat cells, it simultaneously triggers skin contraction, which results in immediate and long-term tightening. This skin contraction also kick-starts collagen production, creating younger and more revitalized-looking skin.

And did we mention that SmartLipo is easier to perform on smaller areas of the body? Unlike traditional liposuction – which often can only be performed on larger parts of the body – SmartLipo can be performed on the upper arms, around the armpits, and even underneath the chin.
