Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr.Bruce Freedman can help you using our Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) treatment to remove the unwanted abdominal fat and tighten the loose skin of your stomach. This procedure is usually a single one - three hour appointment, done right here at our Fairfax, VA Medspa under a local anesthetic.

Explain the difference between regular liposuction and Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo).
Abdominal Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) is different from traditional tumescent liposuction because it uses a laser to melt fat from your abdominal area. Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) also uses the laser energy or laser heat to create a tightening effect on your treated belly area. This also helps to coagulate the small blood vessels, decreasing your after procedure bruising. Most people need abdominal skin tightening of the abdominal area to also help improve the end result. In some cases, tightening the abdominal skin provides less need for further procedures such as surgical skin removal, example: tummy tuck (see tummy tuck alternative).

Comparing the traditional liposuction procedure to our Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) can result in a better situation of:

  • minimal scarring
  • local anesthesia, not general anesthesia
  • minimal swelling
  • minimal discomfort
  • minimal downtime
  • smaller incisions
  • minimal bleeding
  • minimal bruising
  • no stitches

The most convenient part of your Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) procedure is we can do it right here in our Fairfax, VA Medspa. Under the care of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Bruce Freedman, this Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) treatment usually require two days of downtime.

What you can expect after the abdomen and love handles laser liposuction (smartlipo) treatment is usually a smaller, more balanced stomach and waistline.

Is Removing Belly Fat Permanent?
Stomach fat removal will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy eating and drinking habits after your procedure. Any significant weight gain can result in the return of fat to the treated areas, as well as untreated areas. In other words, a Mickey D’s diet is not recommended.

How Is The Abdominal Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) Procedure Performed?
Prior to beginning your Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) procedure, the area to be treated will be carefully marked by Dr. Freedman and a local anesthetic will be given to numb the belly area. A few Incisions, less than 3 mm are made where the laser and suction cannulas will be inserted. Typically an abdomen area will require 2-5 tiny incisions placed inconspicuously and heal to almost be invisible in most cases.. By using a small, handheld device, Dr. Freedman will use the laser energy directly on the fat cells beneath your abdominal skin surface. As the laser energy is released, the belly fat cells will break apart and liquefy. Most of the fat is withdrawn at the time of this treatment. Afterwards, the days following your procedure, the rest of the liquefied fat will drain away by your body’s natural processes. The laser energy also helps to provide the treated area with the growth of new collagen, tightening skin and improving your overall appearance of your abdominal area. By using laser energy this can help to seal small blood vessels, reducing bleeding and post swelling of your treatment area.

Your Recovery Period
During your recovery process, you may experience minor discomfort for the first 24 hours following your procedure, which can be treated with prescription or over-the-counter medication. The areas of the small incision sites may drain slightly until the morning after the procedure. Patients can also experience minor temporary bruising, which usually will disappear within the first 2 weeks of your treatment. On the stomach area, we strongly recommend the use of a compression garment to help in the healing process and to minimize swelling. Swelling may last up to 2 weeks.

When will I begin to see my results?
Once the swelling has gone following your procedure, your belly area will appear tighter, firmer and even more toned. These results will continue to improve within the first 6 to 8 weeks following your procedure, as your skin readapts to your new curves. In most patients, your best results are clearly visible at about 8 weeks following the Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo) procedure. Most people can return to work within 24-48 hours of having Laser Liposuction versus 1-2 weeks with typical liposuction or 2-3 weeks full tummy tuck.
