Frequently Asked Questions

What Is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a procedure that allows our NYC dermatologist to help you remove fat from your troublesome areas with precision. Traditional liposuction is performed using a cannula, which is inserted and used to remove and suck out fat. In SmartLipo, the cannula has a temperature setting that heats the fat cells before removing them. This makes the procedure easier and more precise and requires less downtime. The SmartLipo laser liquefies fat cells so they are easier to remove, and the temperature setting allows Dr. Katz to ensure that your cells are heated just enough to ensure collagen production. Collagen is a primary necessity in healthy skin. As more collagen is produced, your skin will look healthier, tauter, and youthfully refreshed!

Where to go for SmartLipo?

Dr. Bruce Katz was the innovator of SmartLipo, a treatment that can remove fat from your body in a more precise procedure than traditional liposuction. JUVA Skin & Laser Center has even been the primary training center for the most dermatologists to learn the SmartLipo technique.

How long does it take to recover after getting SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is so much more focused than traditional liposuction, it doesn’t require near as much recovery time. Most of our patients can return to work after taking just one day off after the procedure. You will experience some minor bruising and swelling and will need to wear a compression garment for up to 2 weeks.

Who is a good candidate for SmartLipo?

Like all liposuction, it’s not a weight loss procedure. SmartLipo works best on those within 20% of their ideal body weight and just have a stubborn, diet- and exercise-resistant pocket of excess fat.

When will I see results and how long will these results last?

Results should show up in about a week (once the swelling goes down), and you’ll continue to see improvement for six months. Since SmartLipo completely removes fat cells, your results will last for as long as you maintain a stable weight. If you gain weight, the remaining fat cells will expand. Doctors stress the importance of eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly to stay fit and keep your body looking proportionate.
