Smartlipo is the first laser-assisted lipolysis system that offers men and women a minimally invasive surgery that removes fat. As methods continue to get better it is no wonder why people are choosing Smartlipo over the traditional liposuction surgeries. Understanding the procedure and the risks involved can help men and women decide if it is the right choice for them to feel better about themselves. Speaking with a cosmetic surgeon can also help a person decide if this is a good procedure for their situation.

Many people try countless methods to get rid of fat on their bodies. Smartlipo can eliminate fat cells in a safe and precise manner. The laser is used to liquefy fat deposits through the top layer of the skin. The liquid is removed by a cosmetic surgeon through a tiny incision in the skin. The laser that is used can also seal blood vessels so there is less swelling, bleeding, and bruising than patients have with traditional liposuction. Results can be seen quicker and experience fewer complications. Only local anesthesia is used, which comes with less risks and a shorter recovery time.

Although Houston Smartlipo comes with many additional benefits that traditional liposuction does not offer and it is a safer procedure there are still limitations as to who can get this type of surgery. Going over your complete medical history with your plastic surgeon is vital to prevent adverse reactions and complications from arising during and after the procedure. Good candidates are within 25 pounds of their goal weight, eat healthy, and exercise regularly. They have one or more areas of local fat deposits that have not responded well to diet and exercise. Candidates must be motivated to get rid of them permanently and understand that they must eat right and exercise after they are recovered to prevent the fat from developing again.


The expertise of the Houston plastic surgeons at MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is accentuated by their concern for their patients and their drive to give them the best experience during their SmartLipo procedure. Other plastic surgery procedures they offer include Botox injections, microdermabrasion, and breast augmentation in Houston.
