SmartLipo in New York City

Perfect for targeting hard-to-treat areas throughout the body, SmartLipo in New York City with Dr. Scarpidis is a revolutionary technology that not only melts fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise – but also enhances the contour of your figure and sculpts a more ideal physique.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses laser energy to melt and remove stubborn excess fat from the body. Also known as laser lipolysis or laser-assisted liposuction, SmartLipo is typically used to target pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

During the procedure, a small incision is made in the skin, and a laser fiber is inserted into the area of unwanted fat. The laser energy is used to liquefy the fat cells, which are then suctioned from the body through a small tube called a cannula. The laser energy also stimulates collagen production, which can help tighten the skin in the treated area, resulting in firmer, more defined contours.

What are the Benefits of Smart Lipo?

If your healthy diet and exercise plan just isn’t working to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, Dr. Scarpidis' Smart Lipo in New York City may be your ideal solution. Also known as laser liposuction, the procedure offers a number of appealing benefits for our discerning NYC patients, including:

  • A dramatic improvement in the appearance of unwanted fat.
  • Improved skin tightening.
  • A swift recovery, with most patients returning to work the very next day.
  • Substantially less bleeding, bruising and swelling when compared to other fat reduction techniques.
  • An extremely comfortable treatment that can be performed in Dr. Scarpidis’ private NYC office with local anesthesia.

Your SmartLipo Consultation

Before you undergo your SmartLipo procedure, you’ll first need to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Scarpidis. During this meeting, Dr. Scarpidis will conduct a physical exam, looking closely at the areas you’re looking to target. He’ll also want to learn about your overall aesthetic goals, your lifestyle habits, and your medical history. With this information, the doctor will be able to discuss all of your treatment options with you and devise a long-term plan to become a more confident, attractive version of yourself. While the SmartLipo procedure will be discussed, Dr. Scarpidis will provide a more comprehensive consultation that covers both your short and long-term goals.

The SmartLipo procedure.

To begin your laser liposuction in New York, Dr. Scarpidis will inject a tumescent fluid containing a local anesthetic into your target areas. This solution will numb the area so you feel no pain during treatment, as well as control bleeding and make it easier to remove the unwanted fat.

From there, he will make a tiny incision in your skin, before inserting the laser into a very small tube, called a cannula. He will then insert both the cannula and the laser into the treatment area, moving the laser back and forth to melt the stubborn fat cells and then suctioning the liquid out through the cannula.

Once your NYC SmartLipo is complete, you’ll be sent home to begin the healing process. In general, we recommend resting for at least one to two days before returning to work and your normal daily routine. Though some swelling is to be expected, it should subside within a week, and your skin will be completely back to normal within three months.

Smartlipo FAQ

Liposuction NYC

How long does SmartLipo last?

The results of SmartLipo can last for several years, but it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain your slim, toned appearance. The longevity of the results will depend on factors such as your weight, diet, and exercise routine.

How painful is SmartLipo?

During your SmartLipo procedure, anesthesia will prevent you from feeling any pain. After the surgery, you will experience some soreness, but this should be short-lived and treatable with medication.

What are the risks of SmartLipo?

As with any medical procedure, there are certain risks associated with SmartLipo. Some of the potential risks include infection, bleeding, and scarring, but choosing a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Scarpidis will reduce the likelihood of experiencing any complications.

How much weight do you lose with SmartLipo?

Although you may be able to lose a few pounds with SmartLipo, it’s important to remember that it is not meant to be a weight-loss procedure. The best candidates for SmartLipo should already be close to their ideal weight.

Recovery from SmartLipo Laser Liposuction

SmartLipo has several noteworthy benefits, including a having a greatly reduced recovery time. In fact, most patients are able to return to work the following day – much faster than traditional lipo procedures. While each liposuction process has its advantages and uses, the fast recovery time is one of the reasons many choose to get this revolutionary procedure.

A Pain-Free Procedure

The NYC Smartlipo procedure takes an hour or two, depending upon the size and number of body areas treated. The procedure itself is not painful, as the area to be treated is numbed with a local anesthetic. The experience is described as feeling like a gentle tugging or pressure.

Aftercare is Simple

Initially, you will feel numbness in the treated areas. This diminishes quickly, usually within hours from the time of the procedure. You will experience some swelling, typically gone within a week. You will also wear a compression garment for about a week, as this improves the appearance of the areas from which unwanted fat has been removed.

Every person is unique, and will have different body areas addressed with the procedure. Dr. Scarpidis will provide you with detailed directions for aftercare, and will be carefully monitoring your recovery to ensure that it goes well. Depending upon the areas you had treated, which can be any area of the body, including face, chin, neck, abdomen, thighs, waist, buttocks, arms, calves, ankles, cheeks, jawline, chest or back, your recovery time could vary, particularly if many body areas were sculpted with this procedure.

Your Job: Rest and Recover

Your job after SmartLipo is to simply rest and recover. Plan on resting on the couch or bed, reading or watching TV. The day after your laser liposuction procedure, you will feel tired, and getting plenty of sleep will help your body to heal – take advantage of it. Ensure you have a comfortable place to rest, and have healthy snacks and water close at hand.

The final result will be achieved in about three to six months, but a remarkable improvement in your body contour will be visible within weeks. The fat cells are removed, with lasting results. Your body will still respond naturally to your calorie intake, and it is important that you maintain your new sculpted body with exercise and a healthy diet.

A Defined, Sculpted Body with Laser Liposuction

If you are ready for a more defined, youthful body contour, SmartLipo may be for you, as one of the latest and greatest procedures in non-surgical fat reduction. Not only is recovery time far shorter, it has the added advantage of tightening the skin in the area treated.
