SmartLipo, also known as laser lipo, is a remarkable method for removing unwanted body fat through a low-pain, highly efficient process. Instead of the bulky tubes and uncomfortable office visits required of traditional liposuction. SmartLipo utilizes smaller instruments and specialized technology to zap fat cells for contouring and reshaping areas of the body including the abdomen, love handles, backs, thighs, hips, knees, arms, neck, and chin.

In 2007 SmartLipo was the first laser to be approved by the FDA to be used for fat dissolution and removal with tumescent liposuction. Smart Lipo laser creates a burst of energy as it enters the fatty tissue causing the fat to dissolve which allows it to be removed by suctioning. Suction sometime may not even be required due to smaller areas of the melted fat reabsorbing back into the body. Smart Lipo can be performed in an office setting without having to put the patients to sleep, and no longer is it necessary to be admitted to a hospital to perform the procedure.
