SmartLipo: Liposuction Results With Less Downtime
SmartLipo is an FDA-cleared procedure that combines the effectiveness of liposuction with the skin-tightening powers of laser heat energy to create a slimmer and more contoured body. The goal of SmartLipo is to help a patient get rid of stubborn fat from common treatment areas like the stomach, upper arms, and more. The difference here is that SmartLipo removes this fat via laser heat energy, meaning there’s less swelling and bruising after the surgery. Also, SmartLipo can be performed with local anesthesia, as it is gentler and less painful than traditional liposuction.
That means there’s less downtime – and more time spent enjoying your newly contoured body!
How Does It Work?
SmartLipo uses a small laser fiber to access the stubborn fat of the treatment area (neck, bra fat, breasts, stomach, upper arms, thighs, knees, or buttocks). Once this fiber has been fed through the tiny surgical incision, it emits laser heat energy to liquefy the fat cells. The liquefied fat is then removed by a liposuction cannula, leaving behind a more contoured and slimmer profile.
In addition to removing fat, laser heat energy triggers skin tightening and collagen production, which can help make skin look younger, smoother, and a lot firmer.
Am I a Good Candidate For SmartLipo?
You’re a good candidate for SmartLipo if you have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to traditional diet and exercise. All candidates for SmartLipo should be healthy individuals who are committed to eating well and working out in order to maintain their results. SmartLipo is not a weight-loss solution.

*Individual Results May Vary
What Results Will I See?*
Your results will include a more contoured and slimmer body profile, with a somewhat tighter skin tone. In many cases, patients note that they’re able to fit into their favorite outfits more comfortably and feel a lot more confident showing off their bodies.
You can expect to see results over the following six months when the majority of your swelling has gone down.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Recovery isn’t as intensive as with traditional liposuction, as the cannula isn’t used to manually break up fat (this is what produces a lot of the swelling and bruising associated with liposuction). However, depending on the areas treated, you could be back to work within just a few days and back to the gym within one week. A compression garment is generally worn for one month.
All recovery instructions are individualized and will be reviewed with you. Throughout your recovery, you’ll have regular check-ins with Dr. Keusch to ensure your recovery is successful.
