How It Works

Smartlipo is an enhancement to traditional liposuction. With traditional liposuction, a thin tube called a cannula is used to loosen and suction away the fat. Smartlipo utilizes a specialized cannula that contains a laser fiber used to melt the fat so that it is easily suctioned away. In addition to enhancing fat removal, the laser's blended wavelengths coagulate and tighten the tissue and induce collagen production, which lead to smoother skin and a tighter looking body.

Dr. Sterry offers Smartlipo as an enhancement to traditional liposuction. New York patients can expect benefits such as faster healing and tighter skin.

Candidates for Smartlipo

Some people just can't reduce localized areas of fat despite strict diets and religious exercise. We call this "diet resistant fat" because it simply does not go away. Many men and women who want fat removed also have very lax overlying skin. If this sounds familiar, Smartlipo in the skilled hands of Dr. Sterry might be right for you. This liposuction enhancement is especially beneficial for contouring the following areas:

If your main concern is fat under the chin, you may also want to consider KYBELLA® injections as a non-surgical alternative.

Your Smartlipo Procedure

Dr. Sterry typically performs Smartlipo as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic. He prepares the targeted areas in the same way as tumescent liposuction. Next, Dr. Sterry uses the Smartlipo laser to liquefy the fat. He then suctions the fat away through the cannula. The laser energy also stimulates collagen production for gradual firming and tightening of the overlying skin after the procedure.
