Smart Lipo Laser Liposuction
Smartlipo™ is a newer form of laser liposuction. The Smart Lipo laser disrupts the fat cells and liquifies the fat prior to removal which allows for a less traumatic and more uniform removal of the fat with smaller cannulas.
Smart Lipo can be a good option for those that are at or near their ideal body weight and want to further enhance their natural contours.
Verified Patient Reviews
From my first consultation, I knew Dr. Truong would be an outstanding doctor. This was my first experience with cosmetic procedures, and was extremely pleased with how kind and informative Dr. Truong, Monika, and the rest of his staff has been throughout this process. I am now 3 months post-op and I could not be more happy with my 360 Smart Lipo results. His skills gave me natural-looking curves and sculpted me to look my best! Dr.Truong is honest and has great bedside manner and Monika has made herself available with any questions I’ve had along the way!
Dr. Troung and his staff at Chicago Breast and Body are amazing. I had the smart lipo and abdominal etching surgery and my results were phenomenal. I recently went back for my three month post opt and after seeing the before and after pictures back to back I was blown away. My whole experience from the original consultation to the post opt appointments has been flawless. The staff and Dr. Troung went way beyond expectations and really took the time to explain everything and answers all the questions and concerns I had. For amazing results at a competitive price I highly recommend everyone to give CHICAGO BREAST AND BODY a shot.
I had a Consolation on 11/19/2014 with Dr. Truong and Devi and my Smart Lipo was on 11/25/2014 by Dr. Truong. The procedure is on my upper and lower abdomen, Back , Fanks and upper arms. During the procedure I can feel a little pain and the sting like feeling, but Devi gives me more Narcotic than I was a sleep and the whole surgery went very well. They were able to take 2 litter of fat out of me and as I was dizzy Devi put the pressure garment on me. I felt right to asleep when I get back home. It was uncomfortable the first day after the surgery 11/26/2014 but it was a day before thanksgiving so I have time to rest at home. I can go to the rest room, and sit up to eat, then I sleep through the whole day. 11/27/2014 I felt better, I was wearing the pressure garment and I can go out to have lunch with my friends. Also I went to the black Friday sell at the outlet for hours. By Friday 11/28/2014 I went shower and wash the garment. When I take the garment off I can feel the numbness and I see the change of by body. It is still swelling but I was able to see my body is a little smaller. 11/30/2014 I went out to dinner with my friends and they all say that I look skinnier and my stomach was gone. 12/01/2014 I have to return to see Dr. Truong and Devi, they say that I heal very fast and the result is great. I am so happy with the result I feel that I have gain more confidence. And I look forward to see how I did next week.

CHICAGO SMART LIPOSUCTION FAQ
Given that Smartlipo™ is a relatively new procedure in the cosmetic surgery world, it’s natural for patients to have questions about what the procedure can do for them. At Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anh-Tuan Truong will take time to address any questions you have so you can feel comfortable about moving forward with liposuction. Some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions are listed below, but please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
What is Smart Lipo?
Smartlipo™ also referred to as “Smart Lipo” or “Laser Liposuction”. Smart lipo uses a special laser to break up the fat prior to suctioning or removing from the body.
- Traditional liposuction removes globules of live fat cells using suction whereas Smartlipo™ laser disrupts the fat cells and liquifies the fat prior to removal which allows for a less traumatic and more uniform removal of the fat with smaller cannulas.
- An additional benefit of the laser is that it coagulates the tissue for less bleeding and heats the underlying skin which results in skin-tightening or a “shrink wrap” effect. The laser element also helps to ensure more precision during the procedure and finely target the problem area.
Am I a good candidate for Smart Lipo?
You may be a good candidate if you are at or near your ideal body weight. Smartlipo™ is not a weight loss procedure and are ideal for helping get rid of stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Smartlipo™ can’t remove large quantities of fat, but it can help tighten up your figure and help reveal the shapely physique that you worked so hard for.
During your consultation your surgeon may review or recommend other methods such as:
- VASER Hi-Definition Liposuction
- Lipo 360
What is the difference between Smart Lipo and Lipo?
Dr. Truong will use a focused laser to disrupt and loosen fat cells.
- Regular liposuction uses a combination of tumescent solution and cannula suction to loosen and remove fat cells. Smartlipo™ (also known as laser liposuction) works a little differently. Dr. Truong will use a focused laser to disrupt and loosen fat cells at your treatment site. These cells can either be removed from the body with a cannula, or left behind to be reabsorbed by the body’s natural processes.
- The laser is what sets Smartlipo™ apart – laser procedures can provide subtle contouring without excessive tissue damage or the need for general anesthesia, two common concerns with traditional liposuction.
Can Smartlipo™ help me lose weight?
No, just like traditional liposuction, Smartlipo™ is not a weight loss procedure. Patients should have already reached their ideal body weight before their procedure, allowing Dr. Truong to assess potential problem areas and treat them accordingly. Smartlipo™ is an effective way to shape your body, but it cannot remove substantial amounts of fatty tissue.
How long does Smart Lipo take?
Procedures generally last only a couple hours.
One of the benefits of Smartlipo™ is its speed – procedures generally last only a couple hours. The specific length of your procedure will depend on your physical condition and the size of your treatment area.
Smartlipo™ is performed on an outpatient basis without the need for general anesthesia, meaning that you’ll be back home and on your feet the very same day.
How long does it take to recover from Smart Lipo?
Most patients can expect mild to moderate discomfort.
Although every patient responds differently to the Smartlipo™ procedure, most patients can expect mild to moderate discomfort, swelling and sensitivity near the treatment site. Dr. Truong may recommend compression garments or specific medications to accelerate the healing process and ease your discomfort as much as possible.
Two weeks of discomfort is typical, after which your symptoms will begin to subside and your results will start to become visible.
Will there be any scarring?
The incision needed is very small.
As with any procedure that requires incisions in the skin, some scarring will be present. However, the incisions needed to insert the cannula and remove treated fat cells is very small. Most patients can expect some mild discoloration at their surgery site, but scars are generally very minimal and tend to fade with time.
How long will it be before I see my results?
The results of Smartlipo™ will need some time before they become visible.
The results of Smartlipo™ will need some time before they become visible. Although you may begin to notice some subtle differences in your figure as your swelling subsides, the final results of your procedure will likely need several months to half a year before they can be seen. The final results of your Smartlipo™ procedure will depend on the size of your treatment area, your physical condition beforehand and how well you maintain your healthy habits after. With the right physical care and lifestyle choices, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of your Smartlipo™ treatment for years to come.
