Treatment Information

Facial laser liposuction with SmartLipo™ 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 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 facial laser liposuction treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour depending on the area treated. Results are seen immediately with continued improvement over several weeks.*

In Pittsburgh, laser liposuction surgery is performed by board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dominic Brandy, MD. Laser liposuction in Columbus is performed by board-certified plastic surgeon, Fernando Colon, MD.

Laser liposuction on the face can be performed alone or in conjunction with other types of cosmetic surgery procedures such as:

Facial Liposuction Recovery

After facial liposuction, you may experience mild swelling and bruising. We recommend 1-2 days without vigorous activity but most patients are able to return to work the following day, depending on their occupation. A compression garment can be worn if laser liposuction is used for fat removal on larger areas of the body.


Frequently Asked Questions


Who is a good candidate for SMARTLipo facial liposuction or neck liposuction?
Ideal facial liposuction candidates are in good health, of normal body weight and have realistic expectations for fat removal and skin tightening. SMARTLipo facial liposuction and neck liposuction are best for people who have small pockets of fat under the neck, jowls or face that seem to be resistant to other weight reduction methods.
How long do the results from facial laser liposuction last?
Adults do not \"regenerate\" new fat cells. Fat cells are permanently* removed during a facial laser liposuction treatment. After laser liposuction, if people gain weight the fat will be deposited to other areas of the body.
What is the cost for SmartLipo laser liposuction on the face?
The cost for SmartLipo depends on a number of factors that will be discussed during a private surgical consultation. During your consultation, we will discuss your surgical goals, your lifestyle needs and aesthetic concerns. You will leave your consultation with a clear understanding of the cost of facial liposuction, the recovery process and the results you can reasonably expect from your surgery.
Are there risks associated with Cosmetic Surgery procedures?
Men and women of all ages choose cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons and the process of deciding to have elective cosmetic plastic surgery is highly individualized and very personal. This decision can offer lasting improvement not only to an individual''s physical appearance, but also to his or her self-confidence and self-esteem. However, choosing to have any type of elective surgery, including cosmetic surgery is not without risk and potential complications.
