SmartLipo may be a newer laser assisted liposuction procedure being performed in 

most parts of the planet . it's a tried and tested laser therapy which was 

initially practiced in Italy in Europe. Now other countries like Japan, USA 

and South American countries have started performing this laser liposuction 

which has many added advantages. it had been approved by the Food and medicines 

Administration in November 2007.

SmartLipo involves employing a laser body sculpting workstation. This is 

manufactured by Cynosure which is an American Company that produces 

laser and light-based source equipment for the health industry. The device 

was approved by FDA for laser assisted liposuction. 

The SmartLipo procedure involves introducing a laser probe through a small 

incision within the skin at the treatment site and spending laser pulses to 

liquefy the fat at that site. The Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting Workstation 

delivers a 1064-nm Nd: YAG laser fiber through a search . The laser probe is 

very delicate and thin. it's about 1mm - 2mm in diameter. therefore the skin 

incision that's needed to introduce this probe is extremely small.

Laser liposuction or SmartLipo is an outpatient procedure and is completed under 

local anesthesia. there's no need for any special preparation at the 

beginning of procedure. The doctor after examining the candidate to ascertain 

whether he's fit, injects a fluid at the treatment site. This injection 

contains anesthetic drug to form the procedure painless, other drugs to 

make the location bloodless to stop blood loss.

The laser probe after insertion in to the treatment is operated by doctor to 

deliver laser pulses. These laser pulses melt the fat at the treatment site 

which is removed by the blood. a couple of doctors also suck the surplus liquefied 

fat not removed by the blood through a cannula introduced through the skin. 

In this procedure, there's no got to move the equipment to and fro to the 

extent wiped out the normal liposuction procedure. This obviously 

decreases the tissue trauma and subsequent bleeding. Moreover the laser 

pulses coagulate the tissue round the treatment site and this again helps in 

controlling the bleeding.


The laser additionally to liquefying the fat also induces the tissue to get 

down collagen. This collagen contracts and makes the heal the

treatment site tight. This prevents the formation of any loose skin folds and 

makes the treatment site perfectly blend with the body contour.

The procedure of SmartLipo takes relatively less time. Each session of 

treatment lasts for about 45 minutes to at least one hour. Since the laser 

probe is extremely small, the incision made doesn't require any suturing. Since 

no suturing is completed , no ugly scar results. Also the results become evident 

within every week and therefore the results are permanent since the fat cells are destroyed 

and removed.
