Reshape your body. Reshape your life.
Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and permanently eliminates fat.
Those “love handles,” “bat wings,” “muffin tops,” “saddlebags” and jowls that don’t respond to exercise and diet? They improve dramatically with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging. And with Smartlipo MPX, you can experience the latest generation of laser-assisted lipolysis. This unique technology exclusively offered by Cynosure delivers the optimal blend of two laser wavelengths for fat removal, tissue tightening and safe results.
With Smartlipo, you’re in the doctor’s office one day and turning heads the next. Are you ready? It’s time to reshape your body and reshape your life.
Here’s how it works
- Local anesthesia is used (you’re awake during the procedure)
- A tiny incision is made, about the size of the tip of a pen
- The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body
- The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes
- The fat cells are permanently destroyed
- The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out
- New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening
Typically, only one treatment is required dependent on the number of areas to be treated. Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.

Why is Smartlipo better than traditional liposuction alone?
It’s less invasive, patients are highly satisfied, and you can return to normal activity quicker.
Liposuction introduced the world to body contouring. Now Smartlipo takes an amazing concept and makes it even better. Whether your doctor uses it to complement traditional liposuction for large areas or to treat targeted trouble spots, Smartlipo was the first and is the trusted choice in laser-assisted lipolysis.
With Smartlipo, there is significantly less bleeding, swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction. As a result, recovery is faster. Because local anesthetic is used instead of general anesthesia, you’re awake during the procedure—that’s a real plus leading to a faster, easier recovery.
- Usually under general anesthesia
- Loose skin remains where fat is suctioned out
- Significant pain
- Increased chance of complications (based on touch-ups)
- Resume work after a week
- Local anesthesia
- Tightened skin from collagen production where lasers are used (visible after three to six months)
- Less pain
- Less chance of complications (based on touch-ups)
- Resume work after two days
According to American Health and Beauty, Smartlipo is the most popular requested cosmetic procedure in 2008 and 2009.
