Smart Liposuction, also known as SmartLipo, is one of a new generation of fat removal procedures used by plastic surgeons like Dr. Javad Sajan. It can help patients lose inches in targeted areas of the body. This new technology gives the surgeon greater control over the treatment procedure, produces a number of positive results, and causes less trauma to the treatment areas.

Reducing those Excess Inches

Even the most health-conscious person can develop unwanted fatty deposits or cellulite at various areas of their body. Although diet and exercise can help a person's overall health, certain fat deposits just stay put. SmartLipo can remove those difficult-to-lose deposits.

People who have experienced significant weight loss often find that their skin and tissues are unable to adapt to their reduced body size. SmartLipo can tighten up those less-elastic skin areas and address lingering fat deposits.

Some men experience gynecomastia – a swelling of their breast tissues caused by hormonal imbalance, obesity, heredity, or certain drug use. SmartLipo can reduce fat and tighten skin in the breast and chest area for a more proportioned, masculine physique.

How Does SmartLipo ™ Work?

SmartLipo is a laser-assisted lipolysis procedure (a method of breaking down lipids/fat) often used in treating fat-prone areas of the body like the face and neck, arms, chest, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. It differs from traditional liposuction in a number of ways:

  • SmartLipo is minimally invasive, using small incisions.
  • Local anesthesia is used instead of traditional general (deep sleep) anesthesia.
  • SmartLipo triggers a natural skin tightening and firming process whereas liposuction may leave loose and sagging skin following fat removal.
  • SmartLipo causes minimal bruising.
  • Recovery time is faster; there may be little to no downtime following your SmartLipo procedure.

Your SmartLipo Procedure

SmartLipo procedures are done in our state-licensed surgery center. A local anesthesia will be administered at each treatment site during which you may notice a light pressure. SmartLipo procedures do not require an overnight hospital stay. Your procedure will take between two and four hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the size of each area. You will be monitored for your comfort and safety at all times during the procedure and recovery.

Dr. Sajan will create a small incision at the treatment site and insert a micro-cannula (small tube) through the incision to access the fatty tissue. A SmartLipo laser fiber is inserted through the incision and micro-cannula. The laser's wavelengths vaporize/liquefy the fat cells which are then suctioned out.

During this process, your brain receives a signal (stimulated by one of the laser wavelengths) and triggers your body to initiate the production of new collagen and elastin-forming skin which results in tightening and thickening of your skin. Another laser wavelength cauterizes blood vessels at the treatment site, reducing blood loss and tissue trauma. The process is repeated until all sites have been treated.

You may need to wear a compression garment for a brief period of time following your treatment. There should be minimal bruising and discomfort, and you may notice a small amount of drainage from your incisions over the following 24 to 48 hours. Scarring at the incision points will be very small and with proper care should not be noticeable. Expect to resume normal activities in one to two days and more vigorous activities one to two weeks after your procedure. Results should become noticeable within seven days and continue for some weeks and months to follow.

Exploring Smart Liposuction

The results of SmartLipo are essentially permanent in the treated areas but it is up to you to maintain a healthy exercise and diet plan for long-lasting results. Contact Dr. Sajan's office for a consultation and discuss how SmartLipo may benefit you. Remember it is called Smart Liposuction for a reason. Contact us for an appointment as soon as possible!
