Laser Lipo Charlotte NC – Smartlipo™

What is Smartlipo™?

Laser lipo, also known as Smartlipo™, is offered by Dr. Stephen Giordano, medical director at Carolina Age Management Institute.

Laser lipo abdomen treatments with Smartlipo™ are a great solution for those who want to eliminate troublesome fat areas that have been problematic for your appearance.

What Is Laser Lipo with SmartLipo™?

Smartlipo is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes fat across all parts of the body. The Smartlipo laser was approved in 2006 by the FDA.

Smartlipo also goes by the name of “Lipolysis” or laser lipo. The Smartlipo technology uses laser energy to sculpt the body contours to the client’s specification.

There are many different options out there for people who are looking to lose extra fat. Treatments that use heat, cold, or even lasers, can all be used to help you look your best. SmartLipo combines two methods of fat reduction to give you the best results possible.

Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from the area or areas in question. Laser technology is used to stimulate collagen production during liposuction.

By combining these two methods, patients get better results and even an easier procedure. 

The liposuction, of course, removes fat. This allows patients to see results right away. But, when combined with the laser, collagen is stimulated, giving patients tighter skin as well. Plus, the laser can help melt fat, which makes it easier for Dr. Giordano to suction out using liposuction.

How does SmartLipo™ work?

SmartLipoor laser lipo, works by generating heat from the laser light, the heat is then used to target fat cells. Upon reaching the appropriate temperature the fat cells then liquefy. The liquefaction of the fat cells then makes the suctioning process easy. The suctioning is done by using a suction device.

The suction device makes the process fast for the surgeon and comfortable for the client or patient. Occasionally the fat is massaged out of the area instead of suctioning, this is often determined by the volume of the fat to be removed.

These two treatments work together to give patients the results they desire. The laser helps melt the fat, which can make it easier to remove via liposuction. The collagen stimulation also helps tighten the skin.

Combined, these two treatments give patients better results and easier treatment. Plus, since the fat is melted, smaller incisions can be used to remove it via liposuction, which reduces scarring and speeds up recovery for many patients. 


What are the benefits of SmartLipo™? 

SmartLipo or smart lipo abdomen treatments help individuals in removing inches of excess and unwanted body fat.. This simply means that fat can be reduced when the technique is employed thereby making the treated portion slimmer and more contoured.

SmartLipo uses heat generated by the laser light thereby making it a less invasive procedure than the old traditional means of liposuction. Before the invention of  laser lipo, a traditional means of liposuction was used. The method uses a tube called  ”Cannula” to remove the excess fat from the desired area.

SmartLipo unlike its traditional counterpart does not leave sagging skin after the procedure. SmartLipo helps in eliminating cellulite from the skin and tightens up a sagging portion of the skin.

Also, the Smartlipo™ procedure stimulates the production of collagen in the body. Collagen helps in rejuvenating the skin.

With barely any scarring and short downtime, body contouring is a minimally invasive, smart laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like your abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and neck, while permanently eliminating fat.

If your problem areas won’t respond to exercise and diet, Smartlipo™ provides dramatic improvements with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction.

Does Laser Lipo work?

The results of Smartlipo™ treatments are not permanent because adults are capable of growing new fat cells. The body contouring procedure of laser lipo leaves fewer fat cells in the body. After the laser lipo procedure, clients are advised to maintain body weight in the future.


SmartLipo™ for the fat that you can’t lose

Many people who work out and watch what they eat can struggle with some areas of fat that just won’t go away, no matter how hard they work. This can lead to feelings of frustration and cause people to feel self-conscious about these areas. If this is the case for you, Smartlipo™ may be an option. This treatment utilizes two different methods to help give you the best results possible. 


It is safe in many areas of the body


Fat often accumulates in areas such as your hips, knees and under your arms, and once it is there, it can be very resistant to diet and exercise. Smartlipo™ can change that by removing excess fat permanently. You will enjoy a new silhouette with results visible in a week. Smartlipo™ uses local anesthesia to numb only the specific treatment area of your body, so you’re awake during the procedure, but you won’t feel any pain. It actually tightens your skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin.


People have different areas on the body they need to target. Perhaps you feel your arms are flabby no matter how many reps you do with weights. Maybe your tummy continues to spill over your jeans no matter how many crunches you do. Smartlipo™ can be used to treat these areas and more. 


SmartLipo™ can be used to treat your:


  • Stomach
  • Butt
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Neck
  • Face

In addition to offering better results and being able to treat many areas of the body, Smartlipo™ offers other benefits too. This treatment leaves minimal to no scarring. This is thanks to the laser making it easier to suction out the fat. Because of this, Dr. Giordano is able to use smaller incisions. 


SmartLipo™ also offers a shorter recovery time than many other fat reduction treatments. You should plan to take about a week off to rest and recovery. Other treatments, such as general liposuction can require two or more weeks to recover following treatment. 


What Happens During a Smartlipo™ Session?

It is done under local anesthetic to minimize any possibility of discomfort. The laser liposuction fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, and the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes so that the fat cells are permanently destroyed. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. It is an in-office procedure that typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas.

During your consultation, we will discuss any preparatory steps that may be necessary to facilitate the success of your procedure, but unlike other more invasive treatments, your procedure preparation should be minimal.

Improved Results

Although liposuction is great for removing excess fat, many patients are left with sagging skin. By using laser technology, we are able to stimulate collagen production while simultaneously removing excess fat. As a result, patients can enjoy tighter skin and a reduction in fat that prevents excess skin after the treatment. The laser lipo procedure can also be combined with procedures like fat transfer injections for the ultimate body contouring results.

Safety and Efficacy

The use of laser technology also makes the liposuction procedure faster and safer. SmartLipo™ laser energy is used to melt fat immediately before removal, which makes it much easier to remove and also makes the treatment more comfortable for the patient. This enables us to use smaller incisions and local anesthesia, improving the entire treatment experience. SmartLipo™ can be performed in as little as one hour, compared to traditional liposuction, which can take up to three hours or longer.

Faster Recovery

Patients are also able to enjoy a much quicker recovery with SmartLipo™, as the use of laser energy significantly decreases bruising and eliminates the need for large incisions. Most patients are able to return to work and other regular activities within just a few days. Traditional liposuction typically requires patients to spend about a week out of work.

In fact, recovery using SmartLipo™ is generally shorter than if traditional liposuction is done. Most patients are able to return to work and activities within a few days. Though you will need to wear compression garments for about a week following your treatment. 

After your procedure, you may experience some minor bruising and swelling, and you may be required to wear a compression garment for about a week to help with the healing process. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities within a day or two, though, and for most patients, great results are achieved in just one Smartlipo™ treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over the next three to six months. Best of all, since your fat cells are permanently destroyed in the treated area, your results will be long-lasting. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

SmartLipo FAQs

What is SmartLipo™ or Laser Lipo?

This is a type of fat removal, also referred to as a body sculpting procedure. It utilizes both liposuction and lasers to give patients the best results possible.

How does SmartLipo™ work?

SmartLipo™ combines liposuction and laser energy. Liposuction is used to remove excess fat, while laser technology stimulates collagen production. By doing these two things together, patients can enjoy not only a reduction in fat but tighter skin after treatment as well.


What are the benefits of SmartLipo™?

There are many reasons we use SmartLipo at Carolina Age Management Institute. First, it increases the effectiveness and safety of liposuction procedures. The laser is used to melt fat before removal, which makes it easier to remove. This also helps make the treatment more comfortable for our patients. Plus, since the fat is melted and easier to remove, we can make smaller incisions.


This is also faster to perform. Traditional liposuction can take anywhere from three to four hours to complete. SmartLipo™ procedures can be done in as little as an hour.

How long does recovery from SmartLipo™ take?

Another benefit of this is that it has a pretty fast recovery time. Most patients are able to return to work and other activities within a few days. Traditional liposuction, however, often requires patients to be away from work for a week.

What parts of the body can SmartLipo™ be performed on?

This can be used to remove fat on many areas of the body including arms, legs, neck, face, butt, and even your abdomen.

Will it leave a scar?

Since this allows us to operate using smaller incisions, the scarring left will be minimal, if there is any. Some patients do have some bruising after treatment, but this fades within a few days and is substantially less than they would have with traditional liposuction treatments.
