There are several treatments available to remove excess fat and improve body contours, but SmartLipo is the only fat reduction treatment on the market that can eliminate stubborn fat without causing unnecessary trauma to the body.
At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, our SmartLipo treatments will resculpt your problem areas with less side effects and recovery time than traditional liposuction.
What is SmartLipo?
Traditional liposuction, using a cannula tube to extract excess fat using vacuum suction, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. Advances in this procedure have led to more safety and improved effectiveness, leading to the sophisticated technology of SmartLipo.
While traditional liposuction uses a thin, hollow tube to suction fat, SmartLipo utilizes modern laser technology to safely melt fat and coagulate blood. The laser technology allows Dr. Hamawy to use a smaller cannula when extracting the fat cells, minimizing residual bruising and also reducing the amount of bleeding during the procedure.
SmartLipo, can permanently eliminate fat from around the neck, jawline, upper arms, breasts, bra rolls, abdomen, waist, inner and outer thighs and knees. Smartlipo is meant for healthy individuals of normal weight who are tired of working hard, eating right and not seeing results. SmartLipo combines advanced liposuction techniques with laser technology to eliminate stubborn fat without causing unnecessary trauma to the body.

What Areas Can be Treated
SmartLipo is safe for use on multiple areas of the body, including the breasts, abdomen, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, calves, chin and back.
Choosing SmartLipo over traditional liposuction has several benefits to your procedure and recovery process:
- As the SmartLipo procedure utilizes a smaller cannula, the incisions made in the skin are also smaller, making surgical scars nearly invisible.
- SmartLipo is minimally-invasive, reducing downtime significantly and allowing you to return to your daily routine sooner.
- Post-treatment bruising and swelling are reduced, causing less discomfort after surgery and making results visible sooner.
- SmartLipo increases the precision of fat removal, eliminating the guesswork of traditional liposuction.
Depending on the extent of the SmartLipo procedure, patients may be able to return to work right away or require another person to drive them home afterward. If large areas of fat were removed, the body will need some time to redistribute tissues and accommodate the fat loss. For smaller treatment areas, patients typically report feeling well enough to return to normal activities within two days.
Although side effects are reduced with this technique, minor bruising and swelling may still occur at treatment sites. Your healing will be monitored by Dr. Hamawy, and it will be established during your follow-up appointment when all normal activities can be resumed.
Fat is removed permanently through the SmartLipo procedure, but major lifestyle changes such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations can impact your results.
