Swelling after SmartLipo Treatment

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


One of the advantages of SmartLipo over traditional liposuction is that SmartLipo minimizes post-treatment swelling and bruising.

If you are considering liposuction, the first step to enjoying the body contouring benefits of SmartLipo is a consultation with a board-certified doctor at JUVA Skin & Laser Center to determine if you’re a candidate for laser-assisted liposuction. Most patients who are near their ideal weight and in good general health but have fat deposits in certain problem areas are eligible for SmartLipo treatment.

SmartLipo is less invasive than standard liposuction, and the use of a laser to help remove fat encourages your body’s natural healing and collagen-production process to provide uniformly contoured results. This results in significantly less swelling than traditional liposuction and also limits recovery time and discomfort.

Most patients are able to return to work within two days of treatment, although you will need to wear a compression garment and limit strenuous physical activity for about one week following your procedure.
