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 – reducing fat and tightening the skin. All without surgery. The results are permanent, and you get a firmer, more sculpted body.

LUMEN is pleased to offer Renuvion® skin tightening, which can maximize your treatment 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 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 in Philadelphia

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:

Candidates for SmartLipo

You may be a good candidate for SmartLipo if:

Some patients have larger or multiple areas to address, which can be effective with SmartLipo. The procedure is not for everyone and is not a treatment for obesity or intended for weight loss.

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 at our Bryn Mawr (near Philadelphia) location.

I could not be any more happier with the hair transplant I received. This week marks a year since my procedure and the results are remarkable. Not going to lie, I am a very impatient person and pretty skeptical, but the team calmed me down, and sure enough, I saw the results I was dreaming of. I started to significantly lose my hair since I was 18 and as a 25 year old, the amount I lost at my age destroyed my confidence and my ability to even look in a mirror or take pictures with people. It was eating me alive. The Lumen Center team restored my hair and my outlook on life. I am incredibly grateful and if anyone else is considering a hair transplant, I highly recommend this facility. Take a look at the results for yourself!

I just had a second procedure at Lumen Center (Smart lipo). Dr Kwak and his team were so knowledgeable and explained the process from start to finish. I was somewhat nervous but I'm so happy with the outcome. Fitting into some old outfits gave me a real boost of self esteem. I can't say enough about their remarkable compassion and encouragement during each follow up visit as well. The results exceeded my expectations!

Lumen Center is Amazing!!! From the staff to the customer service. I had Smart Lipo with Renuvion done almost two months ago and I will say from consultation to now post op/ aftercare I have not one complaint! Julie, Megan, Gen, Courtney, Dr. Kwak are amazing. If you’re looking for a practice that’ll treat you as royalty and give you great results for your body type, Lumen Center is the place to go. My results are amazing from a size XL to a Medium in less than two months. I get compliments by everyone I come in contact with. You guys are amaze balls. 😄

I started out at the Lumen Center with the Smart Lipo procedure & I keep on coming back. The staff is so welcoming as you walk through the door. Every time I call with questions, I get the answers I need. I felt nervous before going into my procedure and the staff was calming and understanding, which made me very comfortable before, during, and after surgery. I am thrilled with my results. My personal results went from a size X-Large to a Medium with continued diet and exercise. Being diagnosed with PCOS, I have had stubborn fat that 10 miles a day wasn’t taking off. This procedure eliminated that stubborn fat for a clean slate and an easier way to maintain a healthy weight. I bought a package of the Lipo Mino wellness shots to boost my energy and metabolism and it was a great addition. Dr. Kwak artistically created curves that have enhanced my body and I get compliments all of the time. I now use The Lumen Center for all of my botox & wellness injections too. Dr. Kwak has truly changed my life and I cannot thank him enough!

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.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

The first step is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kwak to discuss your goals, concerns and questions. He’ll determine if you are a good candidate and review what you can realistically expect. We’re here to help guide you in your body contouring journey.
