What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is very much like regular liposuction, only it utilizes a medical-grade laser to gently liquefy excess fat without damaging surrounding blood vessels, nerves, and tissues.

The laser is inserted along with the cannula, which vacuums away the fat as it is liquefied. This removes stubborn fat deposits and contours the body.

SmartLipo in Richmond, Northern Virginia with our team gets fantastic results for just about any part of your body where there is excess fat. This includes the neck, face, jawline, stomach, arms, and thighs.

How is SmartLipo Different from Traditional Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction uses a cannula and physical manipulation to remove fat from beneath the skin. SmartLipo also uses a cannula, but it also incorporates laser heat to melt the fat, making it easier to remove with the cannula, typically resulting in less bruising.

What are the Benefits of SmartLipo?

There are many benefits to a SmartLipo procedure in Washington DC with Drs. Burt and Reps Sundin. It’s less invasive than many other liposuction techniques, which means it works very well for more delicate treatment areas such as the face, neck, and chin.

It also requires a smaller cannula than regular liposuction, which means smaller incisions, as well as less scarring, pain, and recovery time.

Furthermore, with SmartLipo, doctors can actually see the lasers under the skin as they work. This helps guide them as they perform the procedure.

Another benefit to SmartLipo is that the laser’s heat tightens the skin as it works. Liposuction alone doesn’t tighten the skin, and sometimes because of this, a patient will experience dimpling or sagging after the procedure—especially in the case of older patients. However, with SmartLipo, this problem is covered.
