What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a safe and virtually painless procedure that gives our doctors the precise contouring capabilities they need to improve the body’s shape and reduce cellulite in unwanted areas. This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure causes fat cells to rupture and drain away as liquid, allowing your plastic surgeon to suction it away with minimal effort. While this is occurring, the tissue around the area thickens, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue. The SmartLipo procedure requires little to no downtime for the patient and is the perfect procedure for targeting stubborn fat pockets that do not respond to changes in your diet or exercise routine.

How can men benefit from SmartLipo?

SmartLipo For Men offers men the ability to re-sculpt and reshape almost any area of their bodies including their chin, upper arms, neck, abdomen, and back. Perfect for addressing common concerns like gynecomastia, or “man boobs,” chest fat removal, love handles, and more, SmartLipo can help men who haven’t seen the results they are looking for from exercising regularly or changing their diets. By removing these stubborn fat pockets, SmartLipo allows men to achieve a cut, sculpted physique and may even help some men get desirable, chiseled six-pack abs.

How soon can I see results?

Immediately following your procedure, you will need to wear a compression garment for at least two weeks. Most patients will see results as early as 6 weeks prior to treatment, and the best results around 12 weeks. Some patients, especially patients with many areas of excess weight, may need multiple treatments for the best possible result. The great thing about SmartLipo for Men is that your results will continue to improve in the months following the procedure, and can be maintained forever with a good diet and exercise routine.

Who is the ideal candidate for SmartLipo?

The ideal candidates for SmartLipo are healthy adults within 30% of their ideal weight. The goal of this treatment is to target fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It should not be considered a method of weight control. Patients seeking SmartLipo treatment should have realistic expectations and specific body contouring goals for themselves. We ask that SmartLipo patients do not smoke and refrain from all alcohol consumption at least one week prior to treatment. The patients that will get the most out of this treatment option are the patients who are willing to maintain their results long after treatment with a good diet and regular exercising.
