Minimally-Invasive Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Minimally-Invasive Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Smartlipo™ Laser liposuction allows physicians in our Bloomfield, Connecticut practice to reduce fat and perform body contouring in a minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction methods. We use Smartlipo TriPlex™, which is the most advanced laser lipo system available. We were the first to offer Smartlipo TriPlex in the Greater Hartford area. This patented, proprietary technology enables us to not only better remove fat and perform high definition laser body sculpting and contouring but also to simultaneously tighten skin and supplement or augment traditional methods of cellulite treatment. Further, we can effectively treat localized fat deposits in the face and body and areas of high vascularity and flaccidity. The procedure is performed in an office visit and causes minimal patient downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

This laser-assisted liposuction procedure is performed using a small cannula (a tube about the size of the tip of a pen) with a laser fiber inside of it which is inserted under the skin. Through this cannula, laser energy is delivered directly to the fat cells causing them to rupture while producing new collagen resulting in tissue tightening. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. Further, the three laser wavelengths contained in Smartlipo TriPlex™ allows us to customize treatments based on the nature of your concerns.

Smartlipo TriPlex does not leave behind loose skin or a large tummy tuck scar, unlike traditional lipo surgery. Also, because only local anesthetic (as opposed to general anesthesia) is required, the patient is awake during the procedure, which leads to a faster and easier recovery. Finally, we can create a high definition, sculpted look by defining waistlines in women and abdominal muscles in men (six pack).

The best candidates for laser liposuction procedures are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower torso. We will determine if you are a good candidate for laser lipo when you come in for your complimentary consultation with one of our medical providers.

Only one Smartlipo treatment* should be necessary to achieve the desired results. You’ll see some immediate results, but final results won’t be apparent for six to twelve months.

There is minimal discomfort associated with the Smartlipo treatment since patients are treated with a local anesthetic to numb the areas that will be addressed. Patients may feel slight pressure or a warming sensation in and around the areas to be treated, but these are mild sensations. Patients are able to talk with the doctor during the procedure because they are awake and not sedated.

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, therefore after the treatment, there will be some swelling and a little soreness. Further, patients may have some fluid leak out of the incision sites for 24 hours following the procedure. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities in a day or two.

On average, the procedure will take one and a half to three hours, depending on the size of the areas to be treated.

No, Smartlipo is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.

The laser lipo procedure is minimally invasive. Some light bruising may occur, but you will be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.

The incision sites will be very small. With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable. Our medical providers will evaluate your skin type and provide information on scar prevention.

Since the fat cells are disabled and removed, they will not return in the areas treated. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to prevent the growth of fat cells in other areas of the body.

Our treatment options are very affordable relative to traditional, expensive liposuction surgery. We offer complimentary consultations with one of our medical providers. In addition, we offer convenient monthly payment plans through CareCredit. For specific pricing information, view our price list.
