As a leading cosmetic laser technology company, Cynosure Laser has developed some of today’s best laser liposuction systems. Dr. Gerry L.

What Is SmartLipo™ (Cynosure Laser, SmartLipo™, Laser Liposuction)? How Does It Differ from Traditional Liposuction?
SmartLipo™ is a fat removal system that uses laser energy to assist with fat removal in certain areas of the body. The heat from the laser device also stimulates collagen production to tighten and tone the skin. As SmartLipo™-certified practitioners, Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez are able to precisely remove unwanted fat while maintaining attractive and natural body contours. Because the Cynosure SmartLipo™ system uses laser energy, you will also benefit from increased collagen production. Collagen is key to youthful skin because it adds volume, thereby reducing sagging and loose skin.
Cynosure has been developing cosmetic laser treatments since 1991, and all of their laser systems are put through rigorous clinical studies and scientific research to ensure safety and effectiveness. The patented-technologies behind Cynosure systems have made the company a global leader in laser-based aesthetic treatments.
How Does SmartLipo™ (Cynosure Laser, SmartLipo™, Laser Liposuction) Work?
Cosmetic laser systems are designed to deliver various wavelengths of laser energy to target specific cosmetic concerns. The SmartLipo™ system has three separate wavelengths that Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez can use alone or in combination to safely remove fat and refine your natural contours. Your SmartLipo™ specialist chooses the wavelengths based upon the volume of fat to be removed as well as the treatment area.
Small incisions are required for the treatment, and most patients remain comfortable with only local anesthesia. Under certain circumstances, your SmartLipo™ specialist may recommend general anesthesia for your laser liposuction procedure. A laser-equipped fiber is inserted through the incision to deliver small bursts of laser energy to the targeted fat cells. The laser energy penetrates and destroys fat cells, and a cannula is used to suction out the liquefied fat. The incisions are small enough that sutures may not be required.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated with SmartLipo™ (Cynosure Laser, SmartLipo™, Laser Liposuction)?
The precision of the SmartLipo™ laser liposuction suction system allows Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez to treat both small and large areas, including but not limited to:
How Much Fat Can Be Removed? Can Multiple Areas Be Treated at the Same Time?
As SmartLipo™-certified practitioners, Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez are specially trained to remove up to 90% of the fat in the treatment area. They may recommend removing less fat to maintain the natural curves of your body. Multiple areas can be treated in some cases. Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez will advise you as to the number of treatments that are needed based upon your overall cosmetic goals.
