Smartlipo, laser liposuction surgery, works by heating up and removing fatty deposits from the thighs, arms, abdomen, or chin. With this procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, and his team can help patients with issues such as jowls, saddlebags, or love handles. Since the procedure is using laser energy to heat up the fat cells, the removal process is easier and less invasive than traditional liposuction, making the recovery time and side effects considerably reduced. The heat from the laser also encourages collagen production, which results in the production of firmer, tighter skin. If Phoenix, AZ patients are in need of a solution to their stubborn fat or problem areas, then we invite them to schedule a consult at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. today to learn more about Smartlipo.
The surgical technique is frequently recommended for our patients who cannot smooth or tone certain body areas through exercise or diet alone. Therefore, healthy individuals who maintain an active lifestyle and follow a nutritious eating plan can benefit the most from the surgery.

What to Expect
Prior to the surgery, a local anesthetic is administered, which means patients will remain awake during the surgery. A small incision about the size of a pen tip is then made. A small tube or cannula is used to destroy and liquefy the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. In turn, new collagen is generated which tightens the area. On average, Smartlipo takes about 2 hours.
Only one Smartlipo session should be needed to attain the desired results, though more can be administered if necessary. Generally, results are seen after a week with continued improvement noted over a 6-month period. Patients can maintain the results for the rest of their lives with the proper nutrition and exercise routine following the procedure.
