WHAT IS Smartlipo?
Liposuction is a popular plastic surgery procedure that reduces the amount of undesired and unappealing fat from your problem areas. It provides quick results for those who want a more toned figure but are not seeing outcomes with exercise and diet alone. Smartlipo is a laser lipolysis treatment that yields stunning results for those who wish to remove fat cells from their body but prefer a less invasive surgical option compared to standard liposuction. Utilizing the Smartlipo laser by Cynosure, a top developer of cosmetic laser and treatment systems, this treatment is designed to help you achieve a slimmer look for the neck, face, arms, stomach, waist, hips, and/or thighs. If innovative, nonsurgical liposuction techniques sound appealing to you, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his team would be more than happy to discuss Smartlipo and the wonderful benefits that come with it. Get in touch with our Doylestown, PA office to learn if you're a candidate.

"I can’t say enough good things about Dr.Tamburrino and his wonderful staff, but I’ll try! I turned to Dr. Tamburrino for treatment at two very different times in my life. The first was when I suffered a devastating necrotic skin condition. Dr. Tamburrino treated me immediately and compassionately and saw me through a long period of healing. He is a healer in the truest sense of the word. The second was when I returned to Dr. Tamburrino for a neck and lower-face lift. The consultation, surgery and recovery left no doubt that he is a skilled and knowledgeable surgeon. Thanks to the doctor, I look rested, refreshed and years younger. Dr. Tamburrino is warm and has a great personality, but, at the same time, is very straight-forward about procedures and expectations. Anna, Andrea and all of his staff make you feel like you are part of the family where hugs, laughter and loving care abound. Whether you seek treatment for a medical issue or want to improve your appearance, look no further than Dr. Tamburrino and his team."- N.L. / Google / May 14, 2022

WHO CAN GET SMARTLIPO?
Liposuction, laser or otherwise, is not a solution for weight loss. Although patients will see a noticeable reduction in the size of their problem areas that didn't respond well to exercise and diet changes, it's still important for individuals to not rely solely on the procedure for weight loss or weight maintenance. If you are healthy enough to undergo traditional liposuction, you are most likely an ideal candidate for Smartlipo as well. Those who may receive the longest-lasting results from Smartlipo are those who:
- Are in great health overall
- Remain within 25 pounds of their goal weight
- Have realistic ideas about the outcome of their surgery
- Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine
HOW DOES SMARTLIPO WORK?
Similar to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo requires the use of incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. However, because the technology used is laser lipolysis, both the incisions and cannula are much smaller than those of a standard liposuction procedure. At the time of your treatment, Dr. Tamburrino will maneuver the handheld laser device underneath the skin and throughout the treatment area. As fat cells come into contact with the laser, they will begin to swell and liquefy. Dr. Tamburrino will then remove the liquefied fat cells with the cannula. The Smartlipo laser also is able to stimulate collagen production, which assists in tightening and toning the skin following your procedure.
What to Expect
Even though the Smartlipo surgery is minimally invasive, it will still need to be completed in a fully accredited surgical facility. The anesthesia used for your surgery will depend on the area being treated. Your procedure will last about an hour, depending on the size and number of regions being addressed. After surgery, you can expect to see some bruising and experience some discomfort and swelling. However, these symptoms are completely normal and will fade over the coming weeks. Your fullest results will be seen within about six weeks following surgery.
How much does Smartlipo cost?
Your Smartlipo estimate will depend on a number of variables, including your specific goals and the number/location of areas being targeted. We accept a variety of payment forms here at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. In your consultation, you can discuss the estimated cost and payment options in more detail.
What areas can Smartlipo treat?
Because Smartlipo uses a small cannula, it is ideal for targeting smaller areas that require higher precision than larger-mass areas. You may want to consider your chin, neck, or cheeks when thinking of which areas can benefit most from your Smartlipo treatment. In contrast, traditional liposuction may be more suited for large surface areas such as the back or belly.
Will Smartlipo create scars?
With Smartlipo, we only need to create very small incisions to fit the cannula. The cannula used for Smartlipo is much smaller than the traditional ones used in other liposuction procedures. Please ask in your consultation appointment about scar care for reducing as much scarring and pigmentation post-operatively as possible.
nonsurgical fat reduction
If you've made committed attempts to reduce fat in hard-to-fix spots (such as the lower tummy, hips, and thighs) to no avail, Smartlipo could be the answer you've been looking for. With Smartlipo, you can achieve the results you want without the downtime involved for a standard liposuction surgery.
