Smartlipo is the safest, most effective, and most affordable procedure available today to sculpt bodies, tighten skin and give you the figure you desire. Smartlipo Triplex® is the newest, most advanced, laser liposuction and the ONLY one with skin tightening!

What is SmartLipo?

Smartlipo Triplex® is a one-time, pain-free, mini-invasive, laser liposuction treatment. This procedure revolutionized liposuction to become the leader in permanent fat removal without the pain and recovery of surgery or the pain of multiple procedures required with procedures like CoolSculpting™. 

It’s the only technology capable of both liquefying fat cells and permanently destroying them, while simultaneously tightening the skin, for much smoother results than traditional liposuction. 

How is Smartlipo Done?

Through a tiny incision about the size of pen tip, a cannula is inserted under the skin and local anesthesia is given. A laser fiber is then inserted to deliver energy directly to the fat cells causing them to rupture, and at the same time, the under surface of the skin is regenerated and tightened. The liquefied fat is then gently removed. There is no limit to the amount of fat that can be removed in just a single procedure.

Smartlipo Is Better Than Conventional Liposuction

1. Awake & comfortable

Smartlipo is done only with local anesthesia, so you are fully awake and comfortable. Traditional Liposuction requires general anesthesia.

2. In-office procedure 

The Smartlipo procedure is done in our office, while traditional liposuction usually requires a hospital stay.

3. Very little downtime 

 You are back to your normal routine in one or two days after the Smartlipo procedure! Traditional liposuction requires much more recovery time. 

4. Tightens the skin

 Smartlipo removes fat, tightens skin, and regenerates collagen, the natural protein in our body that helps give skin strength and elasticity. Conventional liposuction often leaves behind loose skin and therefore, might require a tummy tuck at a later date.

5. Lower cost                       

The investment in Smartlipo is significantly lower than traditional liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, which also includes hospital costs.

6. Little or no pain 

There is little or no pain involved with the Smartlipo procedure, unlike the painful healing process with traditional liposuction.

7. Safe & comfortable 

Smartlipo is less invasive and much safer than traditional liposuction.
