SmartLipo FAQ

Smartlipo® Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

How long does the Smartlipo® procedure take?

The Smartlipo® procedure takes an average of 2–3 hours per session.

How many Smartlipo® treatments are required?

Most patients typically require only one treatment. Each Smartlipo® session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. SmartLipo can also be used for “touch-ups” and revisions to previously treated areas.

Does Smartlipo® treat cellulite?

The Smartlipo® procedure will improve the body’s shape and may reduce cellulite to a certain degree.

What is the long-term outcome for most people?

Most patients can see results immediately following the Smartlipo® procedure, and they can expect their skin to return to normal within three months. However, as with traditional liposuction, you will need to practice patience since the full Smartlipo® results may not be visible for up to a year. The more fat that was removed, the longer it will take to achieve maximum results, as your body needs to adapt to a more significant shape change.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients experience very little discomfort.

How soon can I go back to work?

While some patients are able to return to their daily routines almost immediately, we recommend a day or two of rest before returning to work. The stitches and bandages are usually removed one to two weeks after the surgery, after which time the tiny surgical incisions fade and become virtually unnoticeable.
