Why Physicians Recommend SmartLipo
  • Minimally Invasive (small/minor incision)
  • Little to no bleeding means less bruising and faster recovery
  • The laser on the device also provides skin tightening in addition to fat loss
Complaints About SmartLipo
  • Operator ability is very important. Most negative patient reviews for SmartLipo are about lack of provider skill and not device problems.
  • Slower for large quantities of fat
  • Potential for burns


Results for SmartLipo, like any other lipo-contouring technology, are dependent on a lot more than just the technology. Surgical ability, experience and artistic eye have much to do with results, as do patient selection and healing differences. It is a "tool" which can enhance results often allowing some skin tightening.

Next Steps

We recommend consulting with multiple providers in your area. Although we know price is important, the results and your safety are more important.

SmartLipo isn't a commodity or a procedure, it is a medical device (tool) used to sculpt and contour fat from your body. Most surgeons will typically use this device as part of your treatment much like a house painter will use a roller, a sprayer and a brush. There are several different models of SmartLipo and the technical specs of each are important to the doctor purchasing the equipment, but much less important to you. Higher wattages and different wavelengths are not what produce the "best results", an artistic eye and surgical skill do.
