SmartLipo™ -MPX® Education Resources

OC Aesthetics is proud to announce that they are now using the next generation SmartLipo-MPX®.

As America becomes more health and fitness conscious, we want to not only have more energy and live better, but we want to look thinner in those areas of our body that are resistant to fat reduction. It is a great trend as more women and men want to look and feel better about themselves, and body contouring and lipo-sculpture is that natural decision to make for healthy and active adults. Liposuction continues to grow in popularity, and its has become the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in America today. At OC Aesthetics, we are enthusiastic to offer for our patients the next generation of SmartLipo, i.e., Cynosure's Smart Lipo-MPX®.

Smartlipo-MPX ™ is the first and now latest next generation lypolysis system for the removal of fat, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. Using a high-powered laser, Smartlipo-MPX is the leader and best known Laser Body Sculpting procedure in the nation. With our office you will enjoy less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction. We perform our procedures in our office on Thursday's and Friday's so you may be back at work the following Monday or enjoying your typical weekend.

The word “laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Precise and safe, today’s medical-grade lasers work by creating a powerful light beam that is adjusted to a specific frequency range. SmartLipo is different in that it uses a carefully calibrated laser to liquefy fat deposits through the top layers of the patient's skin. The laser actually ruptures fat cells, and the resulting oily, liquid substance is then removed through a tiny incision in the skin by our surgeon. The small laser can also seal blood vessels as it zaps fat, so there is less swelling, bleeding and bruising than with traditional liposuction.

In addition to the reduced areas of fat in your body, the most impressive part of our SmartLipo techniques is that cellulite is typically reduced and skin tightening in those lose areas is achieved.

As more women – and men – want to look and feel better about themselves, body contouring and lipo-sculpture continue to grow in popularity, making liposuction the most popular cosmetic surgery performed today.

Smartlipo™ is the first and only laser lypolysis system to offer a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure for the removal of fat. Using a high-powered laser, Smartlipo is a new LaserBodySculpting
procedure with less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction.

Research has shown that little, if any, fat is reabsorbed back into the body. The minimal invasiveness of the procedure allows patients to see faster results and to experience fewer complications. In addition, SmartLipo’s patients need only a local anesthetic for this procedure, whereas liposuction requires general anesthesia. Because the patient is not completely unconscious, SmartLipo carries much fewer risks than traditional liposuction, and the recovery time is much shorter. SmartLipo…cutting-edge, safe and effective.

How does the Smartlipo™ procedure work?

A very small cannula, or tube, approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis it resulting in collagen shrinkage. Due to the cannula's small size, Smartlipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising, - and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, the procedure is very safe with only minimal side effects.


Is SmartLipo Right for You?

Almost anyone can be a good candidate for SmartLipo. In general, the ideal candidate: (1) is in good health, exercises regularly, is within 25 lbs. of his or her ideal weight; (2) has one or more areas of local body fat deposits that have responded poorly to diet and exercise; and (3) is bothered by these fatty areas, and is motivated to get rid of them permanently. Your doctor will review the benefits and risks of SmartLipo with you during your consultation visit. He will assess whether you are a good candidate with respect to your medical health, and he will clarify what SmartLipo could do for you.

  • Less traumatic


How many treatments will I need?

Post-Operative Care:

Almost "normal" skin after 3 months It would be very hard to find the insertion points or tell by looking at the skin that any liposuction has ever been done. Skin contracts with the healing-tissues that replace the melted fats.


Safety and Complications:

Smartlipo™ is safer than traditional liposuction because there is less bleeding and anesthetic drugs used. In fact, in doing the procedure under tumescent technique, we have eliminated a lot of risks normally associated with general anesthesia.
