Laser Liposuction by Dr. Vendetti

For several years, he performed this body contouring procedure, and he now proudly uses SmartLipo, the most advanced in laser liposuction & laser lipo technology. It has garnered a reputation for high patient satisfaction and excellent results.

Smartlipo laser body contouring is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like:

  • abdomen
  • arms
  • buttocks
  • thighs
  • neck

So if your problem areas won’t respond to exercise and diet, Smartlipo provides dramatic improvements with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction.



How does Smartlipo® laser liposuction work?

Smartlipo is designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly refered to as laser liposuction. The laser literally melts fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue coagulation through laser energy that is delivered, contributing to an overall smoother shape. Three wavelengths provide targeted treatments to disrupt fat; coagulate blood vessels and stimulate collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity by. 57%1.



  • Smartlipo uses local anesthesia to numb only a specific area of the body being treated so you’re awake during the procedure- No General Anesthesia!
  • The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes, and the fat cells are permanently destroyed
  • The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin

Benefits of Smartlipo versus Regular Liposuction Surgery

Smartlipo has been an innovative medical device that allows plastic surgeons to remove fat from various parts of your body without general anesthesia. Even though traditional liposuction surgery (using the old-fashioned canulas) has not been banned, it would be better to analyze the benefits of the Smartlipo method compared to any other invasive surgical procedures.

Incisions Are Smaller Compared to the Liposuction Surgery

Many women worry about incisions that could create larger wounds to places they need to expose when sunbathing. Traditional liposuction needs some extended incisions to let the cannula enter the subcutaneous area and remove the excess fat layers.

However, Smartlipo manages to absorb more fat from your thighs, arms, and abdomen with fewer and smaller incisions. That is why patients undergoing the Smartlipo procedure are ready to wear their bikinis sooner than any other people who underwent surgical procedures.

Smartlipo Induces a Shorter Recovery Time

A real problem with the old-fashioned liposuction surgery would be the long recovery time. Patients recovering from regular liposuction need to wear protective garments to reform the incised skin tissues. On the contrary, Smartlipo fat removal guarantees patients’ getting back to work the next day, which is impressive considering the easiness and efficacy of the whole procedure. 

It Deals With Cellulite And Sagging Skin More Efficiently

Applying the regular liposuction cannula has no effects on cellulite and sagging skin marks reduction. With Smartlipo, plastic surgeons are more efficient in reducing these conditions and make your skin appear fresher, tighter, and thinner. Smartlipo can easily remove persistent fat deposits from various parts of your body. It does so by inducing a faster collagen recovery and new production. The laser emitted light during the procedure is enough to create structural changes in your skin cells and create new conjunctive tissue proteins that make your skin look fresher and younger.

Smartlipo Works Better to Patients Who Need A Massive Weight Loss

People who decided to undergo the traditional liposuction surgery were often excluded due to peri-surgical co-morbidity risks. In other words, many plastic surgeons following the liposuction protocols denied surgery to severely obese people due to the high risk for heart failure during the anesthesia. 

With Smartlipo, everything has changed for these patients. Since general anesthesia is no longer needed, they can have a massive weight loss of up to 30 lbs of extra fat tissue, without the previously mentioned risks. 

Face, Neck, and Chin Liposuctions Are a Smartlipo Reality

Traditional liposuction cannulas could never be applied to the face, neck, and chin areas. However, more and more people have issues with fat accumulated in these areas, which are crucial for their appearance. Even after long and exhausting diets, persistent fat tissue could still be present in these body parts.

Smartlipo uses laser light to absorb fat from any part of the body effectively. The incisions are smaller, and plastic surgeons can easily remove fat from these areas offering patients the ideal appearance without the high surgical costs and the serious side effects of traditional liposuction.


How painful is liposuction?

Liposuction is a minor surgical procedure requiring anesthesia. There is no chance you will feel any pain during the liposuction procedure. However, after the liposuction, you may feel the pain caused by the surgical intervention itself, as you will no longer have the anesthesia effects.

Is getting liposuction worth it?

People dealing with chronic health problems shouldn’t undergo a liposuction surgical procedure, even though it’s safe compared to any other invasive medical interventions. It would be better and safer to start a healthy nutritional program and initiate regular training sessions to reduce your body weight. The right indication for liposuction surgery would be for healthy people who want to get rid of fat accumulated in certain body areas like the upper arms, thighs, and abdomen where anything else has failed to do so.

How long do liposuction results last?

Your plastic surgeon is the only person able to explain the liposuction procedure and the possibility of undergoing further skin tightening procedures to complete your body contouring efforts. Liposuction final results appear on you in one or three months after the surgery, directly related to the amount of body fat you have removed from your body.

“I have avoided oral surgery for years, it appears they try to put you in as much pain as possible. I had to drive so many miles to find someone who really cared and knew what they were doing. It was painless.”
