SmartLipo in San Diego

SmartLipo in San DiegoLiposuction is one of the most widely used cosmetic procedures in the United States because it works! It removes fat safely and reliably, and it not only improves the way you look but it can also have a great impact on your overall health and self-esteem.  Liposuction is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted fat from areas such as:

    • Hips
    • Buttocks
    • Thighs
    • Abdomen
    • Upper Arms

SmartLipo offers an even easier way to get the shape you want!

SmartLipo is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive, laser-assisted liposuction procedure that is done under local IV sedation.  SmartLipo uses laser technology to rapidly dissolve fat for easier extraction and tightens the surrounding skin. This amazing procedure offers patients less bleeding, swelling and bruising.  This translates to a faster recovery time!

You’ll notice a difference in your shape immediately after your SmartLipo treatment! And in the days following your procedure, if you keep an eye on your reflection in the mirror as the swelling goes down, you’ll notice those results getting better and better.

And you won’t be the only one who notices. Trust us on that.

SmartLipo vs. Traditional Liposuction

SmartLipo is unique in that it adds a “skin tightening” feature to the procedure via a laser fiber which heats the underlying skin tissue, stimulating elastin and causing some correction to skin laxity.

Neither traditional liposuction nor SmartLipo are designed to make patients lose weight, and they should not be used as substitutes for proper diet and exercise. Candidates should be in good health and capable of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
SmartLipo is best for those who are within 25 pounds of their target weight and have a small area of fat to be removed with mild skin laxity.

SmartLipo technology also addresses dimpling and other surface irregularities and can improve the appearance of cellulite.
