proReshape your body. Reshape your life.

Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and eliminates fat.

Those “love handles,” “bat wings,” “muffin tops,” “saddlebags” and jowls that don’t respond to exercise and diet? They improve dramatically with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging. And with Smartlipo MPX, you can experience the latest generation of laser-assisted lipolysis. This unique technology exclusively offered by Cynosure delivers the optimal blend of two laser wavelengths for fat removal, tissue tightening and safe results.

With Smartlipo, you’re in the doctor’s office one day and turning heads the next. Are you ready? It’s time to reshape your body and reshape your life.

Here’s how Smartlipo it works

  • Local anesthesia is used (you’re awake during the procedure)
  • A tiny incision is made, about the size of the tip of a pen
  • The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body
  • The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes
  • The fat cells are destroyed
  • The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out
  • New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening

Typically, only one treatment is required dependent on the number of areas to be treated. Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.

Why is Smartlipo better than traditional liposuction alone?

It’s less invasive, patients are highly satisfied, and you can return to normal activity quicker.

Liposuction introduced the world to body contouring. Now Smartlipo takes an amazing concept and makes it even better. Whether your doctor uses it to complement traditional liposuction for large areas or to treat targeted trouble spots, Smartlipo was the first and is the trusted choice in laser-assisted lipolysis.
With Smartlipo, there is significantly less bleeding, swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction. As a result, recovery is faster. Because local anesthetic is used instead of general anesthesia, you’re awake during the procedure—that’s a real plus leading to a faster, easier recovery.

Traditional Liposuction


  • Usually under general anesthesia
  • Local anesthesia
  • Loose skin remains where fat is suctioned out
  • Tightened skin from collagen production where
    lasers are used (visible after three to six months)
  • Significant pain (Click Image)


  • Less pain (Click Image)


  • Increased chance of complications (based on touch-ups)
  • Less chance of complications (based on touch-ups)
  • Resume work after a week
  • Resume work after two days


In laser-assisted liposuction, better science leads to better results

Smartlipo is the most widely used and extensively studied, used and validated laser-assisted liposuction or lipolysis system available today. It was the first laser introduced for this purpose. With eight years of studies, Smartlipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction.

  • A 2009 study published in Clinics in Plastic Surgery noted “Smartlipo is proven to be a safer and more effective method of body contouring. The histological findings from clinical studies demonstrate the advantages from traditional liposuction that include improvement in recovery time and the final clinical result.”
  • A 2006 study published by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery stated Smartlipo provides “excellent patient tolerance, quick recovery time, as well as the benefit of dermal tightening through coagulation.”
  • A study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in 2006 showed that Smartlipo is a useful tool for the treatment of local “lipodystrophy,” or build-up of fat. It also was effective for the formation of new collagen resulting in skin tightening through coagulation.
  • A Clinics in Plastic Surgery study published by Dr. Alberto Goldman and Dr. Robert Gotkin in 2009 summarized, “By reducing blood loss, minimizing both aesthetic side effects and complications, and by promoting improvements in skin contraction, laser-assisted lipolysis has proven itself to be safer and more effective.”

The best technology. The best results.

smartlipo_machineThe requirements to become the global leader in laser assisted body contouring include continuous innovation of the Smartlipo technology supported by scientific clinical studies by highly respected physicians.

This results in the patients ability to achieve the safest and best outcome from the latest technology. The most recent Cynosure platform, Smartlipo TriPlex® combines the benefits of the three wavelengths to maximize treatment outcomes

In addition, Smartlipo MPX now comes with a new intelligent laser delivery system called ThermaGuide, which lets your doctor deliver the appropriate level of thermal energy for the optimal outcome.

Why it’s important to ask for Cynosure’s Smartlipo by name

The success of the Smartlipo procedure has created a new category of body contouring called laser-assisted lipolysis. There are important reasons to make sure you ask for the original Smartlipo by Cynosure.

  • It’s proven. Smartlipo is FDA-cleared by the U.S. Government and the choice of physicians around the world. It is supported by eight years of clinical studies.
  • It’s less invasive. As a minimally invasive procedure, Smartlipo does not carry the risks and expense associated with surgery.
  • It’s safer. As the only laser-assisted lipolysis with an intelligent delivery system, Smartlipo is built with consistency and safety in mind.
  • It’s the most trusted. Smartlipo is the most widely accepted and clinically studied laser-assisted lipolysis system available today. With a 94% patient approval rate, you can have confidence in Smartlipo.
