SmartLipo™ Liposuction Alternative
SmartLipo™ is a progressive step in minimally invasive liposuction techniques that uses laser energy to reduce fat pockets and tighten skin. This liposuction alternative results in a tighter, firmer, more contoured appearance to the treated areas, and typically does not involve the recovery time or bruising associated with the traditional liposuction procedures. Additionally, because Dr. Tiffany McCormack uses a small fiber optic laser to perform the procedure, scarring from SmartLipo™ is virtually unnoticeable.

Benefits of SmartLipo™
SmartLipo™ can be an effective way to eliminate stubborn fat pockets and improve the overall appearance of the skin without major surgery, and has several distinct advantages over the traditional liposuction procedure. With SmartLipo™, Dr. McCormack is able to address excess fat that has not responded well to diet and exercise without the need for large incisions, which also results in quicker recovery time.
In addition to presenting patients with a procedure that has been considered a safer option when compared to previous laser lipolysis systems, SmartLipo™ can actually firm up and tighten skin after the fat has been removed, which can result in a better contoured and enhanced appearance. SmartLipo™utilizes a state-of-the-art continuous subdermal temperature probe, which enables Dr. McCormack to more precisely and effectively treat multiple areas of fat accumulation in a variety of body areas, both large and small.
Dr. McCormack begins the procedure with local anesthetic, which is applied to the targeted areas of fat. Though not often the case, larger areas of fat or multiple treatment areas may require a general anesthesia. Once Dr. McCormack has created several very small incisions to accommodate for the correct placement of the ultra-thin laser, she will first melt the fat, and then gently suction it out. Once the procedure is complete, the skin should look and feel smoother and firmer.
SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure designed to help patients avoid significant scarring and the need for long recovery periods. In fact, many patients are able to resume their normal daily activities one to two days following the procedure, though recovery times are wholly dependent on the individual patient. Some swelling and bruising is likely to occur, but these effects should dissipate quickly. The results of the SmartLipo™ procedure should continue to improve in the weeks and months following the procedure.
