Smart Lipo in Philadelphia, PA

Do you have unwanted fat deposits, despite having a healthy diet and an exercise routine? Do you want to look good in that bikini, or desire a more sculpted look? Smart Lipo (laser liposuction or lipolysis) targets those common “problem areas”: The abdomen, love handles, arms, back, thighs, chin and neck. This liposuction procedure does double duty – melting the fat away and tightening skin. All without surgery. The results are permanent, and you get a firmer, more sculpted body.

LUMEN is also pleased to introduce Renuvion® skin tightening, which can maximize your SmartLipo results. It’s a non-surgical alternative to a tummy tuck that further contracts the collagen in your skin and tones fat deposits. This revolutionary minimally invasive procedure shrinks and sculpts mild to moderate sagging skin.

What Is Smart Liposuction?

Smart Lipo is proven and effective laser lipo that accomplishes a lot in one treatment. It not only removes stubborn fat and tightens skin, but Smart Lipo is used for sculpting the body to reveal a smooth, more natural appearance. Using gentle liposuction, unwanted fat is melted and removed in treated areas to improve the body’s contour. The amount of fat collected from the SmartLipo procedure may also be used as filler for a facelift or transferred to the buttocks for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.

The SmartLipo Procedure

The Smart Lipo procedure completely avoids surgery. Only small nicks (“freckle indents”) in the skin (no stitches) and a tiny injection cannula are needed. Local anesthesia is administered, similar to what is provided at a dentist office. Recovery time is fairly short with most patients back to work after 3-4 days.

Depending on the number and size of the areas, the procedure lasts approximately three hours and steps include:

Frequently Asked Liposuction Questions

SmartLipo has revolutionized liposuction, the gold standard of fat reduction. But there are key differences between these two main types of liposuction techniques.

Traditional liposuction surgery is typically a more invasive procedure, performed under general anesthesia. This surgical procedure has noticeable scarring, a long recovery, and doesn’t have skin tightening benefits.

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure using innovative technology that optimizes body contouring and skin tightening. It is performed under local anesthesia, so you are completely awake. Small incisions (the size of a freckle) means faster healing and little to no scarring. Recovery is fast and normal activity is typically resumed in 3-4 days.

Dr. Andrew Kwak, founder of The Lumen Center, will provide a full initial consultation to discuss your goals and vision to achieve the best results possible, and create a customized treatment plan. After reviewing your medical history, he will examine you, discuss expectations and how the SmartLipo technology works. You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for your procedure and what to expect during and after the treatment.

The SmartLipo treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure in The Lumen Center office in Bryn Mawr, PA.

The Recovery Process

The recovery process and downtime for the SmartLipo procedure is fairly short with most people only taking 3-4 days off from work. Mild associated discomfort and bruising is common. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for one month.

Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.
