Skin Tightening with SMARTLipo Laser Liposuction
A unique benefit of SMARTLipo is that it promotes skin tightening through thermal heating and tissue coagulation, something traditional liposuction cannot do. This allows men and women with loose skin - who previously were not ideal candidates for conventional liposuction - to have a body contouring treatment with the added benefit of skin tightening.
SMARTLipo Body Contouring and Skin Tightening Treatment
SMARTLipo body contouring and skin tightening is performed as a simple outpatient treatment. A paperclip-thin probe, approximately 1-2mm in diameter containing a laser fiber, is inserted beneath the skin. The probe is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells, causing the fat cells to rupture and liquefy. The liquefied fat it is easily drained or absorbed through the body's lymphatic system where it's flushed naturally from the body.
For most people, typically only one treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. Results are seen immediately with continued improvement over several weeks.
SMARTLipo laser liposuction for body contouring and skin tightening can be performed alone or in conjunction with other types of cosmetic surgery procedures such as:

SMARTLipo Body Contouring Testimonials and Stories
(4 / 4 stars) EXCELLANT CARE. I would recommend The Skin Center to anyone that is seeking any kind of skin care or surgery. The staff is well trained to help you at anytime.
(4 / 4 stars) SUPER CARING. Dr. Brandy is so sweet, and he really knows what he is doing. I am so pleased with my results, and he really took the time to ensure my satisfaction.
(4 / 4 stars) QUICK LIFT & SMART LIPO. This is the first review of anyone or any practice I have ever done. I feel compelled to do so, because Dr. Brandy and his staff not just surpassed my expectations, but totally changed how I view myself! Now, I'm not saying that my self esteem needed a boost. I just wasn't thrilled as to what I was seeing in the mirror, and the "changes" that were taking place on my face, and body. I had the quick lift done 4 years ago. I still look 10 years younger (easily), and even more importantly - feel it! I never thought I'd be an advocate of plastic surgery, but I can say with everything I believe, that this was hands down the best gift I could have ever given to myself! I also had a little tummy pouch. I was never overweight but that little pouch just would not respond to my healthy eating habits and exercise. Dr. Brandy performed Smart Lipo on my abdomen 6 months ago. I am thrilled! Pouch gone, skin tighter and as an extra bonus, results can keep getting better and better all the way up to 12 months! YAY Also, I can't emphasize enough the importance of follow-up care! Dr. Brandy's warm, caring staff was with me all the way and will continue to be! They are VERY patient - take it from someone who could be viewed as annoying with so many questions :)My thanks to Dr. Brandy and his wonderful staff! Sincerely,Kourtney
GGK (5 / 5 stars) Talented and Caring. Dr. Colon did an amazing job on my eyes, and also did Smart Lipo the year prior. My friends have booked their appointments to have the same done based on how I look! He is so talented, warm, and caring. Trust is everything when it comes to your plastic surgeon! I can’t imagine trusting anyone else to do such incredible work!
