SmartLipo uses liposuction and laser technology to reduce body fat while also tightening loose skin. A high-energy laser fiber is placed through a small incision, around 2-3mm in length, so the surgeon can melt the fat in the targeted area. The fiber optic laser heat also tightens the loose skin and promotes the production of collagen. The heat is monitored during the treatment to make sure there are no burns or overheating issues. The liquefied fat is suctioned out through a cannula. Any scars that are left behind are small and fade over time.
