For Minimally Invasive Body Slimming

smartlipoSmartLipo is an advanced form of liposuction that uses a medical laser to enhance the fat removal process. With laser energy, we can melt or loosen the fat prior to removal. After the procedure, the laser provides skin-tightening benefits that improve your liposuction results.

If you have a small or moderate amount of extra fat in your thighs, tummy, neck or elsewhere, consider SmartLipo at our Bay Area practice. It’s the perfect treatment for slimming down problem areas, and requires minimal downtime.

Why Choose Laser Liposuction

  • Outcomes are proven. (View our before and after photos)
  • Laser skin-tightening benefits enhance the outcome
  • It’s minimally invasive and requires minimal downtime

Although we recommend SmartLipo as a method to slim down specific areas, it’s not a weight loss method. If you’ve had little or no success slimming down areas like your abs, thighs, neck, or back, you might be the perfect candidate for SmartLipo here in the Bay Area.

The Procedure

SmartLipo is often performed with a local anesthetic and requires less than one hour to complete. We begin by make several tiny incisions in the treatment area. A cannula (a narrow tube) equipped with a small laser will be inserted into the tissue. Throughout the procedure, we deliver pulses of laser energy to first liquefy and then remove the targeted fat cells.

After fat removal, an elastic compression garment will be placed around the treatment area to minimize swelling and promote healing. With the minimally invasive techniques of SmartLipo, we don’t need to use stitches or sutures.


SmartLipo often requires just a few days of recovery, and strenuous activities can typically be resumed within 2 weeks. However, you may experience some minor bruising, numbness or discomfort for a few days. The results of SmartLipo will become evident as swelling and bruising subsides.

While SmartLipo represents a major improvement over liposuction techniques of the past, the surgery still has a degree of risk and uncertainty. All known risks will be reviewed during your consultation with Dr. Bachelor.
