SmartLipo Q & A

What does Smartlipo do?

Smartlipo combines traditional liposuction methods with modern laser technology to give you superior results, without an invasive surgical procedure. This cutting-edge platform involves inserting a very thin tube into one or more small incisions.

The tube contains the Smartlipo laser fiber, which delivers thermal energy into fat cells, forcing them to break apart and melt on the spot. Once all of the targeted fat cells are melted down, they’re easy to remove through gentle suction.

The added benefit of Smartlipo is that not only does it involve removing fat on the spot, the thermal energy also coagulates skin tissues and collagen. This results in a smoother, more defined shape.

Which areas can be treated with Smartlipo?

At Amber Medical Spa, you meet directly with Dr. González who talks with you about Smartlipo and performs your procedure. She can provide Smartlipo treatments just about anywhere on your body, but the following areas are most common:

  • Abdomen and flanks
  • Neck and jawline
  • Inner thighs 
  • Upper arms

You may even be able to have multiple areas treated during a single Smartlipo session at Amber Medical Spa. 

Is Smartlipo painful?

Smartlipo does involve making some incisions and the treatment itself is slightly invasive. But Dr. González numbs your treatment area ahead of time to ensure you feel no pain or discomfort. The only thing you may feel during your Smartlipo session at Amber Medical Spa is slight pressure.

How long does it take to recover after Smartlipo?

Just a few days. Dr. González may have you wear a compression garment for several days after your Smarlipo procedure to minimize swelling and help with healing. But it just depends on your treatment area and how much fat was removed. 

You may feel some soreness and achiness in the targeted area and it’s also possible for minor bruises to develop. Because of these side effects, Dr. González usually recommends avoiding strenuous activities and exercise for at least a couple of days, or until you feel more comfortable.
