The latest advancements in cosmetic surgery technology providing a safer, quicker and cost-effective method. Pioneered in Europe, the SmartLipo procedure is the first laser-assisted liposuction procedure.

Liposuction, lipoplasty, is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. A number of new techniques, including ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) and the tumescent technique, are helping many plastic surgeons to provide selected patients with more precise results and quicker recovery times. Liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to traditional weight-loss methods.
