There are a number of misconceptions about Smart Lipo and liposuction in general. A question we frequently receive from our New York City patients is how much weight they can lose with a Smart Lipo procedure.

It’s important to know that Smart Lipo and, indeed, all liposuction treatments, are not weight loss procedures. You should not use Smart Lipo in an effort to lose weight. Smart Lipo is a highly effective body contouring procedure, but it is only appropriate for patients who are at or near their ideal bodyweight.

Smart Lipo is an effective treatment if you have stubborn deposits of fat that won’t respond to diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle. In those circumstances Smart Lipo can give you impressive results, including:

  • A firmer, tighter, younger-looking body
  • More defined body contours
  • Tightening of loose skin, which is not possible with a traditional liposuction procedure

The exact amount of fat that will be removed during your Smart Lipo procedure will be determined by your doctor with your safety and well-being foremost in mind at all times.

When undergoing Smart Lipo, you want a doctor with enough experience in the procedure to know what’s safe. The doctors at JUVA Skin & Laser Center have this experience, and we’ll make sure we only remove what your body can handle.
