When healthy eating and regular exercise just aren’t creating your ideal physique, SmartLipo offers laser-assisted body sculpting that gives you the ability to target and eliminate stubborn fat for a more toned, contoured appearance.
Is SmartLipo Right for Me?
If you’ve noticed the presence of excess fat that’s a little difficult to address, you’re certainly not alone. Certain areas of the body can simply be difficult to target through diet and exercise…and even when you’ve successfully lost weight, other concerns may arise, such as loose skin that has not bounced back due to a loss in collagen and increased laxity. Our surgeons at Clevens Face and Body Specialists perform a highly effective procedure known as SmartLipo that addresses these trouble spots. While SmartLipo can be used to address multiple areas of the body, Ross A. Clevens also uses the technique to refine the face and neck. If you’d like to learn more about what this procedure can do for you, reach out and set up your consultation at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL locations today.
A Minimally Invasive Liposuction Alternative
SmartLipo MPX by Cynosure goes by many names, including SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting, SmartLipo TriPlex, laser-assisted lipolysis, and laser-assisted body contouring. The procedure is the first laser-assisted lipolysis system to be approved by the FDA for the safe breakdown of fats, giving you a minimally invasive alternative to the traditional liposuction procedure.
SmartLipo also offers many benefits over traditional liposuction, including improved results, reduced downtime, and less discomfort. Additionally, unlike other liposuction techniques, SmartLipo uses laser energy to tighten your skin by coagulating the underlying tissues, preventing the potential for dimpling and sagging that can occur when fat is removed.

How Does SmartLipo Body Sculpting Work?
SmartLipo technology blends two wavelengths of laser energy to melt unwanted fat deposits and tighten the surrounding tissues through coagulation. A laser fiber is guided by a small cannula and inserted into the target area through a small, pen-tip-sized incision.
Melting Fat Cells
Laser energy is delivered directly to the subcutaneous fat cells, resulting in their disruption before the fat is then removed with the cannula. The stimulation of collagen production that occurs thanks to the delivery of the laser energy will immediately begin to tighten the skin.
A Gentle Procedure
Given the small size of the device, the minimally invasive nature of the laser energy, and the gentleness with which the liquefied fat is suctioned out, only local anesthesia will be used. You’ll be awake, but you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure, which is very safe and rarely sees the development of any complications.
Customizing Your Procedure
Coagulation of the blood vessels during the procedure results in reduced bleeding, swelling, and bruising. SmartLipo is customizable to your unique cosmetic goals, giving us the ability to tailor your results with the use of up to three wavelength options that may be utilized to maximize the outcome of the procedure.
Recovery After SmartLipo Body Sculpting
Due to limited bleeding, swelling, and bruising, the healing and recovery process after a SmartLipo treatment is faster than what one might experience after conventional liposuction. Only one treatment is typically needed to create long-lasting results. Rather than a weeklong recovery period, as is common with liposuction surgery, only two days of downtime are needed after SmartLipo.
Your initial results will be noticeable after about one week, with continued improvement over the next three to six months. You may see some very mild bruising, which will resolve quickly. Most swelling and bruising will be gone after about one week. In some cases, depending on the treatment site, you will be able to return to work the next day instead of waiting the customary two days.
