We are specialists in Cosmetic Surgury and SmartLipo. While continuing to offer traditional services we offer the latest advancements in the body-sculpting field of medicine. The SmartLipo procedure affords significant advantages over older options. How does the SmartLipoTM procedure work? A very small cannula, or tube, approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis it resulting in collagen shrinkage. Due to the cannula's small size, SmartLipoTM is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising, - and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction.
