Liposuction Vs. SmartLipo: A Closer Look At These Two Procedures

Liposuction Manhattan | Long IslandIf you have tried your hand at losing weight and it just seems like no matter what little you eat or how much you exercise, you still have stubborn areas of fat that you can’t get rid of, you should consider getting liposuction. By scraping off the fat from these stubborn areas and vacuuming it out, you can get that body that you have been working so hard to obtain without having to go on yet another cleanse again. However, with two different types of liposuction available, it’s important for you to know the difference between both traditional liposuction and SmartLipo. Read on to learn more.

Traditional Liposuction

This form of liposuction is what you are probably familiar with and is likely the first thing you think of when you hear the “L” word. By surgically scraping away fat and then vacuuming it out using a device called a “cannula”, liposuction is a safe and effective way of getting rid of area of fat such as the abdomen, upper thighs, and arms. However, the only real problem with liposuction is that it isn’t effective at reaching certain smaller parts of the body such as the chin, buttocks, pubic mound, and other areas— but that’s where SmartLipo comes into play.


Since being approved by the FDA ten years ago, SmartLipo remains one of the most unique and effective ways of getting rid of smaller areas of fat that traditional liposuction just can’t. By melting away your fat by using a treatment called liposculpture, SmartLipo helps to get rid of areas of fat like the:


  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Thighs
  • Pubic Mound
  • Arms
  • Back of the Neck
  • Face
  • Hips
  • Waist

SmartLipo uses a laser to target and heat up the fat cells. Once heated up, these fat cells can either be suctioned up or they will dissolve into the bloodstream.
