Indications for Smartlipo Triplex Laser Assisted Liposuction
Smartlipo laser assisted liposuction targets trouble spots like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and neck, and permanently eliminates fat. This is especially helpful for exercise resistant areas.
Smartlipo Triplex Laser Assisted Liposuction
The Smartlipo Triplex laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and the fat cells are permanently destroyed. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. Smartlipo Triplex actually tightens the skin through coagulation, so there isn’t as much dimpling and sagging skin as you would get with traditional liposuction. The downtime after Smartlipo Triplex is less than traditional liposuction because the fat is liquefied before it is suctioned out. This is less traumatic on the body. Time Varies, but usually 1-3 hrs.
Location for Smartlipo Triplex Laser Assisted Liposuction
Smartlipo Triplex laser assisted liposuction is performed with a local anesthetic and/or sedation in our office or a general anesthetic at the hospital. It is often paired with Abdominoplasty surgery (tummy tuck), thigh lift surgery or arm lift surgery.
Light bruising and some minor swelling may occur. Much less than with traditional liposuction. Support garments must be worn for 3-4 weeks following the procedure.

Recovery from Smartlipo Triplex Laser Assisted Liposuction
After Smartlipo Triplex laser assisted liposuction, our patients wear a supporting garment or girdle for 3-4 weeks to encourage good wound healing and minimize complications. Patients return to work and light physical activity at 1-3 days and a normal exercise routine at 2-4 weeks depending upon how much liposuction is done.
