Why Choose Synergy Lifestyle Center for Your SmartLipo™ Treatment?

Although SmartLipo™ is FDA-approved and generally safe, it is still a cosmetic procedure. That’s why it is important to have a medical doctor with extensive training and skill perform it on you.

At Synergy Lifestyle Center, SmartLipo™ liposuction treatments are done by Dr. Jan Trobisch, our medical director. Dr. Trobisch has a lot of experience in liposuction and other cosmetic procedures. He can perform the procedure safely and expertly to help achieve the best results possible.

Synergy Lifestyle Center offers many cosmetic treatments, as well as other lifestyle treatments in a confidential, private facility. No one will know you’re here for liposuction treatments. The spa-like setting, comfortable medical office and professional staff will make you feel well cared for while you undergo your SmartLipo™ procedure.

How Does Smartlipo™ Work to Reshape Your Body?

During Smartlipo™ treatment, your doctor uses a small laser device to liquefy fat cells, encourage production of new collagen and tighten skin. Zapped fat cells are gently removed with a cannula, leaving problem areas free of fat bulges. Performed at Synergy as an outpatient procedure, Smartlipo™ offers the following benefits:

  • Faster recovery with minimal downtime
  • Smoother, firmer skin, which may help reduce signs of cellulite affecting skin
  • A smoother, toned appearance
  • Less swelling and discomfort
  • Virtually no risk of scarring
  • Fewer risks than traditional liposuction
  • Excellent, immediate results

One of the advantages of Smartlipo™ is the fact that the laser instantly melts fat cells, which allows your doctor to use a very small cannula to extract the liquefied fat. Requiring just a few, minuscule incisions, Smartlipo™ is considered a minimally invasive procedure without the health risks associated with traditional liposuction surgery.

In addition, Smartlipo™ laser technology offers doctors the ability to apply laser energy evenly over all problem areas. This minimizes the chance that too little or too much fat is removed. Such precision also means patients enjoy fantastic results that further improve as skin heals and shrinks around treated areas.

What are the benefits of SmartLipo™?

SmartLipo™ offers clients a new technique to help re-sculpt problematic areas that don’t respond well to diet or exercise. The procedure uses small, fine incisions to guide laser fibers into fat deposits. The incisions are so small they do not require sutures to close them.

Because numerous small areas are worked on at a time and the laser melts the fat before suctioning, the final appearance is smoother than with traditional liposuction. The laser treatment also tightens the skin in the area. This produces a noticeable difference from older liposuction procedures.

Another benefit of SmartLipo™ is the shorter recovery time. Because only a local anesthetic is used, you can leave Synergy Wellness Center the same day *and recover at home. It’s similar to a dental procedure in that the anesthetic minimizes local pain but doesn’t affect your entire system the way general anesthesia does. And although you’ll want to rest for a few days after your procedure, it’s nowhere near as long a recovery time as with conventional liposuction.

Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?

The SmartLipo™ has been cleared by the FDA for laser-assisted Lypolisis.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you’re a candidate for SmartLipo™. Ideal candidates are in good health, of normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results.

What body regions can be treated with SmartLipo™?

SmartLipo™ can be used for:

  • Neck liposuction
  • Male breast liposuction
  • Arm liposuction
  • Abdominal liposuction
  • Back liposuction
  • Thigh liposuction

SmartLipo™ laser liposuction works best on small to medium areas, where it can remove stubborn fat deposits around muscle tissues. Patients receiving SmartLipo™ should be healthy and close to a natural or healthy body weight. SmartLipo™ cannot take the place of diet and exercise in your weight loss program. It can, however, resculpt sections of the body safely and without many side effects.

How many treatments are required?

For most patients, typically only one treatment is required*. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. Laser Lipolysis is also an ideal choice for “touch ups” and revisions.

Do I have to do anything post-treatment?

After the treatment you will need to wear a compression garment for several days, depending on the body areas being treated. Rest is recommended after the procedure and activity may be resumed gradually. Most patients will relax for several days post-surgery and will resume further activities as their body feels more comfortable. Results are immediate and continue to improve for four months*.

Does SmartLipo™ treat cellulite?

The procedure will improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree. We have a minimally invasive treatment for cellulite (Cellulaze) to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

When can I expect to see results?

Results can be seen immediately with continued improvement over several months*.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

In 2007, the U.S. FDA approved Smartlipo™ and its Nd:YAG laser system for the purpose of vaporizing, ablating and coagulating fat, otherwise known as lipolysis. A recent study involving patients undergoing Nd:YAG laser treatment for fat reduction found “demonstrable reductions in fat volumes, post-treatment, regardless of weight changes.” Additionally, researchers discovered that excellent skin retraction or tightening occurred to further enhance results of Smartlipo™.

Smartlipo™ not only offers quick recovery times, but it is also well-tolerated as a non-invasive fat removal procedure due to its ability to melt fat cells without disrupting surrounding tissues.

What Is the Difference Between Smartlipo ™ and traditional Liposuction?

People electing traditional liposuction must check into a hospital because a certified anesthesiologist must administer general anesthesia intravenously. The surgeon makes large incisions for insertion of tube-like cannulas. To remove fat deposits during a surgical liposuction, the doctor moves the cannula in a jabbing motion under the skin to break up fat. This fat is then suctioned, or aspirated, out of the body. Liposuction patients receive fluids intravenously to replace lost body fluids during and after the procedure. Recovery typically takes between one and two weeks.

At our center for Smartlipo™ in Bakersfield, CA, patients only need local anesthesia while undergoing fat removal treatment. In addition, Smartlipo™ needs only minor incisions because the cannula used is much smaller than the one used during a surgical liposuction. Since laser liposuction involves liquefying fat cells before they are aspirated, the fluidness of fat cells makes it easier to remove them with a narrower cannula. Bruising is minimal — if any — and most Smartlipo ™ patients require just one to two days of downtime before returning to normal activities.

What to Expect During Laser Body Sculpting

SmartLipo™ laser liposuction is performed under local anesthesia to alleviate discomfort. Some soreness will occur, but because laser body sculpting is minimally invasive, patients can return home following the procedure. Most people can go back to work within a few days and return to exercising in about two weeks. Results will begin to appear in the week after treatment, with the best outcomes visible in the following three to six months*.

Does laser-assisted Lipolysis produce lasting results?

Yes! The SmartLipo™ procedure permanently destroys the treated fat cells. Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, that person’s fat cells simply expand.
