SmartLipo™, also called laser liposuction, is one of the most modern ways to take care of stubborn pockets of fat on your body. At the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery, we were one of the first practices in the nation to offer this procedure.

About SmartLipo™ in Doylestown, Pennsylvania
Laser liposuction is an improvement on the traditional liposuction procedure you may be familiar with. Instead of being fully asleep under general anesthesia, your doctor may use a local anesthetic for this virtually painless procedure.
The SmartLipo process is simple, and yet very effective. First, the doctor makes a tiny surgical incision in the problem area and inserts a small cannula. On the inside of this cannula is a laser fiber. Second, the doctor moves the cannula back and forth so that the thermal energy from the laser comes into contact with fat cells. This heat and energy liquefy the fat cells. Lastly, the doctor gently removes the fat cells out of your body.
The procedure takes 30-90 minutes, depending on the treatment area and patient. There’s no need for general anesthesia or a hospital stay. We can use SmartLipo laser-assisted liposuction to remove pockets of fat in the following areas:
- Thigh Liposuction
- Stomach Liposuction
- Neck Liposuction
- Arm Liposuction
- Chin Liposuction
- Face Liposuction
The Perks of Laser Lipo
There are many reasons why more patients are turning to SmartLipo for their needs. Because it’s minimally invasive and does not require stitches, it’s easier to recover from. You have less bleeding, swelling, and bruising because the heat instantly cauterizes the blood vessels. Patients can go back to work within a few days instead of weeks later.
Using the laser comes with other benefits too. You get the perk of skin tightening while eliminating fat as well. This is due to the thermal heat combined with the cauterizing of the blood vessels. With traditional liposuction, you may experience uneven areas or saggy skin. SmartLipo helps promote smoother results and tighter skin.
The results don’t stop after the procedure, either! While it does give you immediate results, you will continue to see improvements through the following months. The skin tightens more and you will see the overall effect better with time.
Is SmartLipo™ the Right Choice?

SmartLipo is usually ideal for patients that are in good overall health and are within 25 pounds of their goal weight. It targets pockets of fat that doesn’t go away after dieting and exercise.
At your consultation, we’ll talk to you about your cosmetic goals, medical history, and budget. We’ll also do a physical examination of the area that you want to target.
