SmartLipo


The Smart Lipo procedure combines the dramatic results of the liposculpture procedure with the technological innovation of the LipoLite laser.  Smart Lipo is ideal for areas in need of skin tightening such as the abdomen or upper arms, and for smaller areas like the neck.  This procedure should not be used for weight loss.  Ideal candidates are people who lead a healthy lifestyle and have areas of fat that have resisted diet and exercise.

The benefits of this procedure are:

  • Minimal scarring: because the fat is broken down with the numbing fluid and melted with the laser, micro-cannulas are used instead of the larger cannulas that are used in traditional liposuction.
  • Skin tightening: in addition to breaking down fat, the heat of the laser helps to tighten the skin from the inside.
  • Reduced down time: In addition to breaking down fat, the LipoLite laser has the added benefit of cauterizing blood vessels as it breaks down fat.  This means that there is less blood loss, bruising, and trauma to the surrounding tissue, resulting in reduced down-time.

There is no need for IV sedation.  Most patients are given an oral medication to help them relax.  Dr. Rokhsar first infiltrates the area with a numbing fluid.  Next he uses the LipoLite laser to break up fat deposits and tighten skin from the inside.  Lastly, the fluid and fat are sucked out through a very small cannula.

You will be instructed to wear a compression garment for at least one week, but will be able to return to work within a few days.
