The summer is approaching quickly, and if you are like many people, you’re looking in the mirror to evaluate how confident you’d feel if today were a beach day. Maybe you’re even wishing you were slimmer or more toned in certain areas.

While diet and exercise can reduce the amount of excess fat in the body, it does not target specific areas. For example, abdominal fat is sometimes difficult to get rid of by just changing your lifestyle.

Luckily, Smart Lipo can help with those tough to lose areas.

What Areas Are Ideal for SmartLipo

Laser liposuction can be used on the following areas:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Chin

How SmartLipo Technology Works

Smart Lipo is laser liposuction. A beam of light energy targets and heats the fat cells and liquefies them. Suction then pulls those destroyed fat cells out of the body. This innovative procedure causes collagen under the skin to contract, thus producing a skin tightening effect.

SmartLipo leaves surrounding tissue largely undisturbed so that untreated areas are nearly unaffected by the procedure and healing time is much faster than traditional liposuction. Click here to learn more about the difference between SmartLipo and liposuction.

How the Procedure is Done

A local anesthetic is given to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Local anesthesia is better than general because there are less risks and lower expenses associated. This is just another great reason to choose Smart Lipo over traditional liposuction.

Where Liposuction is Performed

All procedures are performed in our surgical suite in Long Island, which is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Inc. We also have a second location (for appointments only) in Manhattan, NYC.

One of the greatest benefits of SmartLipo is that it only takes 60-90 minutes for each area of the body you want treated. Recovery is quick, and many patients return to their normal schedules within just a few days.
