How SmartLipo Works and When You’ll See Liposuction Results

Smart Lipo Vs. Traditional Liposuction Long Island, NY

Everyone struggles with areas of stubborn fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise. SmartLipo is a type of laser liposuction that reduces your recovery time, allowing you to return to work in as little as one day with less bruising and swelling. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Arnold Breitbart, offers SmartLipo® Triplex® to help his New York patients achieve a slimmer contour with fewer risks and less downtime. 

How SmartLipo® Triplex® Removes Unwanted Fat 

Dr. Breitbart is one of the most experienced SmartLipo plastic surgeons in New York and has used this advanced liposuction technology for over 15 years. SmartLipo works using a unique laser to heat the tissues and disrupt fat cells prior to the fat being suctioned. The procedure reduces swelling and bruising by stimulating blood vessel coagulation, and precision heating of the tissues promotes skin tightening without damaging the surrounding structures.

SmartLipo® Triplex® uses a ThermaGuide Temperature sensing cannula to precisely control a safe temperature while treating your troublesome areas, and offers a minimally invasive liposuction option that is safe with consistent results. 

The SmartLipo® Triplex® procedure starts with local tumescent anesthesia. This mixture of adrenaline, saline and local anesthetic is injected into the subcutaneous fat and tissue to numb the area. The local anesthetic allows you to stay awake for the procedure if desired, reducing the risks associated with general anesthesia. The SmartLipo® laser is then inserted through a tiny incision, and the laser technology pulses to heat the fat and surrounding tissues. 

Your heated fat cells are then removed from your body through a liposuction cannula. With SmartLipo liposuction, the use of the laser allows the fat to be suctioned more gently and completely than with traditional liposuction, and with better skin tightening.

SmartLipo® Triplex offers quick recovery, with most patients returning to work one to two days afterward. You will have some exercise restrictions, but most normal activities can resume after two days.

Your Liposuction Results with SmartLipo® Triplex®

Laser body contouring with SmartLipo® Triplex® offers quick and safe results using laser energy. You’ll need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to limit swelling and expedite recovery, but many patients see results as soon as one week after SmartLipo with continued improvement for up to six months. 

SmartLipo® Triplex® can eliminate stubborn fat in multiple areas, including your abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, upper arms, neck and chin. Cellulaze can be combined with your SmartLipo treatment to address cellulite.
