SmartLipo® in Philadelphia

What Is SmartLipo?

Smartlipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure done under local anesthesia. SmartLipo is designed to target stubborn fat deposits, stomach, love handles or flabby arms. After treatment, targeted areas look slimmer and more contoured, and the patient can achieve better over-all body proportion. Laser-assisted Smartlipo promotes the production of new collagen resulting in a 57% increase in tissue tightening over traditional liposuction.

What is PrecisionTX?

PrecisionTX is a type of SmartLipo that specifically targets the chin and neck area. Using a very small cannula, a tube the size of a pen, PrecisionTX is inserted under the skin. A unique SideLaze800™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise SideLaze800 laser energy increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously disrupting selected areas of the face under the chin and neck.

Candidates for Laser Lipo

When diet and exercise are ineffective in eliminating stubborn fat, you may be a candidate for a laser liposuction procedure. Depending on your target area Dr. Claytor will use SmartLipo or PrecisionTX. Candidates for SmartLipo include men and women who have stubborn fat that will not go away from dieting and exercise alone. PrecisionTX candidates are men and women who are not significantly overweight but have common signs of aging around the lower face and neck.

Both laser liposuction procedures are effective and affordable solutions for permanently eliminating fat. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Claytor performs both procedures in our AAAASF Surgical Facility. A consultation will determine which laser liposuction procedure is right for you.

Laser Lipo Procedures

Both laser liposuction body contouring procedures are performed in our office conveniently located on the Main Line of Philadelphia. On average, the SmartLipo procedure will take one hour. First, patients receive a local anesthetic to numb the treatment areas so there is little discomfort during the SmartLipo procedure. There may be some slight pressure or a warming sensation in and around the target areas. Patients are able to talk to Dr. Claytor during the procedure because they will be awake.

Then, Dr. Claytor will need to make a number of small incisions to insert the cannula. After treatment and continuous care, those scars will fade over time. This will depend on the size of the treatment areas. There is minimal downtime, and most patients are back to work in a day or two. However, patients should avoid strenuous activity for 1-2 weeks.

Side Effects of SmartLipo

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, therefore after the treatment, there will be some swelling and soreness. Additionally, there can be some bleeding from the small incision sites during or after the procedure.

LaserLipo Results

Since new collagen is formed in the treatment areas and the structures under the skin are treated with laser energy SmartLipo produces results that last. Only one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the results.

Patients can expect to see some immediate results, but the final results won’t appear for about least three months. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but unless there are very large areas that need to be treated, one procedure will provide excellent results.

Patient Reviews

Smartlipo Revision – Fantastic Experience

I had a SmartLipo Revision on May 30, 2018, 6 months after my first procedure back in November. I felt like I needed additional fat taken out of my flanks and Dr. Claytor agreed and worked with me so I can achieve the results I needed. It’s been a week and I am already thrilled with my results. He is truly one of the kindest doctors I have dealt with, easy to talk to and his staff is equally as kind as him. I highly recommend this practice, please feel free to message me if you have questions.
