Pros of SmartLipo Triplex:

  • Small Incisions: 2 mm allow three lasers to tighten skin, destroy fat, and shrink blood vessels. This means less loose skin, removal of fat and less bleeding!
  • Office Procedure: This will eliminate need for hospital or anesthesia fees. Local anesthesia allows for the patient and physician to evaluate symmetry while standing during the procedure! We will minimize any dimpling or asymmetry seen with other liposuction procedures requiring general anesthesia.
  • Permanent Results: The results will last with ONE treatment and continue to tighten the skin out to six months.
  • If someone has lost weight in the past, our office will be able to address the loose skin.
  • Body Contouring: Great symmetrical results from this awake and painless procedure. We use SmartLipo Triplex until you are happy at the results during the procedure.

People who have lost weight with medical or surgical treatment can finally have their loose skin addressed. When my patients come to me for weight loss, their first concern is how much loose skin. We address this by tightening the skin and removing any remaining fat beneath the skin.

This has amazing results. Please check out the photos below. When we use the skin tightening protocol of our lasers, we see amazing results.

Please come on in for a consultation to discuss the possibilities that can be achieved in one morning.

How does SmartLipo Triplex work?

A small 1.0 mm fiberoptic cable is used to deliver laser light to tighten the skin, melt and destroy fat cells and cause extra collagen to be deposited onto the dermis.

This works better than any other laser from the outside of the skin because the dermis, the layer beneath the outer skin (epidermis) is treated with laser light to cause collagen deposition when the dermis is heated to 42 degrees Celsius. This minimizes any possibility of skin burning.

The skin tightening is amazing, and the fat removal is painless during the procedure. There is little down time for recovery after the procedure. Most people can return to their work soon after this clinic procedure.

One of the most common questions about weight loss is "How will I look after I lose my weight?" SmartLipo will address these issues in my patients who have sagging skin and excess fat. Choices can be surgical resection or skin tightening with SmartLipo Triplex.

Does It Hurt to Have SmartLipo? No. We perform this under local anesthesia and some people call it tickle lipo. The entire area to be addressed is numbed first with local anesthesia. This is the safest way to perform Laser Lipolysis with the least complications.

Do you have love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags or jowls that don't respond to exercise and diet? They all improve dramatically using Smartlipo TriPlex, with minimal downtime and less pain than traditional liposuction alone.

SmartLipo™ - Frequently Asked Questions

How does the SmartLipo™ work?
A very small cannula (tube) approximately 1.0mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted under the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis, resulting in skin shrinkage or tightening.

Due to the cannula's small size, SmartLipoT is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising - and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, the procedure is very safe, with only minimal potential side effects.

What are the benefits of SmartLipo™?

The benefits of SmartLipo™ include:

  • Treats unwanted fat and fat tissue irregularities
  • Promotes tissue coagulation resulting in skin tissue tightening
  • Improves flabby or lax skin and areas of high vascularity
  • Minimal edema and bleeding due to the laser's hemostatic properties
  • Minimal bruising
  • Causes less trauma and faster healing time than traditional liposuction
  • Can improve the appearance of cellulite

Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?
The SmartLipoT laser has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted Lipolysis.

Does laser-assisted Lipolysis produce lasting results?
Yes! The SmartLipo™ procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells, as long as weight is maintained, results will last.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you're a candidate for SmartLipoT. Ideal candidates are in good health, of rear normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results.

What body regions can be treated with SmartLipo™?
SmartLipoT is ideal for treating small areas of the face, neck, arms, breasts (gynecomastia), and areas of loose skin. Excellent results can also be seen in the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, thighs and back.

How many treatments are required?
For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. Laser Lipolysis is also an ideal choice for "touch ups" and traditional liposuction revisions.
