Surgical Body Liposuction SmartLipo®

If you’ve been struggling with stubborn fat deposits that won’t budge despite your weight loss efforts, a liposuction procedure might be the solution. Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Langdon specializes in low-impact liposuction procedures using the most advanced technologies. One of these is SmartLipo® Triplex®, an innovative laser lipo treatment that can help you conquer unwanted fat.

What is SmartLipo™ Triplex®?

SmartLipo® Triplex® is a body contouring procedure that combines laser technology and liposuction to remove fat. A laser fiber delivers heat that liquefies the targeted fat cells, which are then easily removed via liposuction. Enhanced safety features monitor the temperature generated by the laser, maintaining an even energy delivery while avoiding thermal damage to your skin. 

In addition to eliminating unwanted fat, SmartLipo® may also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It also has the benefit of contracting collagen fibers and providing skin tightening. Now, you can enjoy a slimmer, more toned figure that is easily maintainable with a healthy diet and exercise.

We offer SmartLipo® body sculpting treatments for almost any part of the body. The most common treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen (belly fat)
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Arms (“batwings”)
  • Thighs
  • Neck and double chin
  • Male breasts (gynecomastia)

Frequently Asked Questions

This advanced laser-assisted lipo procedure is minimally invasive, requires only local anesthesia, and results in less downtime than traditional liposuction. Using local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia also greatly reduces any potential risks. 

The difference between SmartLipo® Triplex® and regular liposuction is the use of a laser to melt the fat before removing it. This causes less trauma because the fat is easier to suction out, and the heat seals small blood vessels, minimizing bruising.

Dr. Langdon will make tiny incisions to insert the cannula with the laser fiber. Once the laser energy liquefies the targeted fat, he will suction it out through the cannula and then stitch the incisions closed. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure typically takes an hour or two. Most patients only require one SmartLipo® treatment.

Laser liposuction with SmartLipo® Triplex® has the benefit of a shorter, easier recovery than traditional liposuction. Most patients return to light activities in two to three days. Slight soreness, discomfort, and minimal bruising may occur following your procedure but are easily manageable. SmartLipo® laser energy coagulates small blood vessels within the treated fat, reducing bruising.

Dr. Langdon will give you aftercare instructions and may recommend wearing a compression garment for the first week of recovery. Typically, patients can resume all their activities and exercise within a week or two.

You probably won’t see the slimming effects of your SmartLipo® procedure initially due to swelling. Results are visible in approximately two weeks and may continue to improve over the next few months. You’ll see reduced fat in the treatment area for a firmer, more sculpted look.

SmartLipo® permanently removes the targeted fat. However, the remaining fat cells in the area can expand if you gain weight. Your results should last as long as you maintain a stable weight. With a healthy lifestyle, patients can enjoy lifelong benefits from SmartLipo®.

The best candidates for SmartLipo™ have good skin elasticity, are in good health, and have realistic expectations. You should have previously tried to get rid of fatty bulges through exercise and proper diet since SmartLipo® is intended for stubborn pockets of localized fat and is not a replacement for weight loss.

SmartLipo® Triplex® has a skin-tightening effect due to the laser heat contracting collagen. However, it is not a skin-tightening treatment and may not be ideal for people with significant skin laxity. Dr. Langdon can recommend alternative treatments if you have loose, sagging skin. He will evaluate goals and areas of concern to help you determine the best course of action.
