SmartLipo™ is an innovative new liposuction technique that uses laser energy to reduce excess fat pockets while leaving a tighter, more contoured appearance to the area. This procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction, and usually does not involve extensive recovery time or excessive bruising after surgery. Plus, since board-certified plastic surgeon Tiffany McCormack, MD performs this procedure using small fiber-optic lasers, scarring from SmartLipo™ is often virtually unnoticeable. SmartLipo™ can be an effective way to eliminate stubborn fat and enhance the appearance of the skin without major surgery.

Benefits of SmartLipo™
SmartLipo™ has a number of advantages if you who are trying to reduce excess fat pockets that are not responding to diet and exercise routines. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that does not require large incisions, and usually results in quick recovery times. Plus, unlike traditional liposuction techniques, SmartLipo™ can actually firm up and tighten the skin after the fat has been removed, leaving a more contoured and enhanced appearance. When compared with previous laser lipolysis sytems, SmartLipo™ can be a safer alternative in that it utilizes a continuous subdermal temperature probe. This state-of-the-art tool allows Dr. McCormack to precisely control contouring in the area and provide a safer and more efficient procedure. Resulting skin tightening can be more thorough and noticeable with SmartLipo™, and it can be performed on multiple areas of fat accumulation, both large and small, on a variety of body areas. It’s one of the many advanced technologies Dr. McCormack offers to help patients enhance their appearance and renew their self-confidence in the way they look.
The SmartLipo™ Procedure
The SmartLipo™ procedure begins with a local anesthetic applied to the areas targeted for treatment. Large or multiple areas of fat that is being targeted for removal may require you to undergo general anesthesia; however, this is not often the case. Dr. McCormack will then create very small incisions in the area to accommodate the ultra-thin laser, which will melt the excess fat. The fat is then suctioned out. Once the procedure is complete, the skin should be smoother, tighter, and firmer – ultimately enhancing the contour of the area.
SmartLipo™ is designed to be minimally invasive without the need for long recovery times. Many patients are able to resume normal routines after one to two days; however, the exact time of recovery will vary with each patient. There will be some bruising and swelling after surgery, but these side effects should fade quickly. The results of SmartLipo™ should continue to improve in the weeks and months following the procedure.
