Achieve a Firmer, Slimmer Body with SmartLipo®
Do you struggle to achieve a leaner, more proportionate shape? If exercise and healthy eating have failed to eliminate troublesome areas of fat, SmartLipo® may be the solution you seek. The FDA-approved SmartLipo® procedure gently contours areas of concern, like the abdomen and thighs, by removing excess fat and tightening skin. The system's innovative laser technology offers a number of benefits over traditional liposuction, allowing for more precise shaping and minimized recovery time. Dr. William Baugh offers SmartLipo® at our Fullerton office, and can help determine whether it is an appropriate treatment to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

SmartLipo® is appropriate for treating nearly any problem area on the body, including the neck, arms, and abdomen. SmartLipo® treatments may take as little as 15 minutes for small procedures, such as treatment of the neck, and up to several hours to address larger regions.
SmartLipo® treatment starts with the application of local anesthetic. Dr. Baugh will insert a small tube, called a cannula, beneath your skin through tiny incisions at the treatment area. Dr. Baugh will move a laser fiber contained in the cannula back and forth in the fat cells beneath your skin, releasing targeted energy that will melt fat, while encouraging the surrounding skin to tighten. Dr. Baugh will suction out the excess fat, resulting a leaner, more toned appearance. Dramatic results can be achieved in just one treatment session, and many of our patients choose to further enhance their overall appearance by combining cellulite treatment with their procedure.
Following your procedure, Dr. Baugh may recommend you wear a compression garment to keep swelling and bruising to a minimum. Most patients can typically return to work and other daily activities within a few days. However, to promote proper healing, you will need to practice caution and avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks.
Weighing the Benefits of SmartLipo®
SmartLipo® is many patients' preferred method of body contouring because of its numerous benefits, including:
- Permanent fat removal
- Out-patient procedure
- Nearly painless treatment that requires only local anesthetic
- Minimal scarring
- Mild post-procedure bruising and minimized bleeding during treatment
- Short recovery time compared to traditional liposuction
- Can result in skin tightening
- Improvements continue over the course of several months
It is important for our patients to remember that SmartLipo® treatment is not suitable for individuals who are moderately or severely overweight. Ideal candidates should be no more than slightly overweight, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet. If you have skin that sags considerably because of prior weight loss, SmartLipo® may not be recommended.
