Do you find yourself wearing looser clothing to cover up a belly bulge, or wishing you could hide your thighs at the beach or pool? Do certain parts of your body just not look like you want despite a healthy lifestyle and targeted exercise? You don’t have to feel self-conscious about these areas anymore. Dr. Scott Brenman at The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery can melt away your pockets of stubborn fat—quite literally—with SmartLipo.

How Does SmartLipo Work?
Many patients seeking a sleeker figure often hesitate to undergo traditional liposuction because of the discomfort afterward or the time it takes to recover. Now, with SmartLipo, you don’t have to be as concerned about the healing process. Dr. Brenman’s commitment to bringing the latest in technology makes SmartLipo a natural choice for patients of the Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery.
SmartLipo is laser-assisted liposuction that works through a laser fiber inside a very thin tube which is inserted into the fatty tissues of the treatment area. Thermal energy delivered to the fat disrupts the cell membranes to liquefy them and make them easier to suction away. The heat from the laser also aids in coagulation and tightens surrounding tissues and skin. As a result, there’s less bleeding, and with gentler suction, less bruising for a faster recovery. Your skin is smoother, your profile more shapely, and your overall physique is as attractive as you’ve always wanted it to be.
Am I a Good Candidate for SmartLipo?
Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, so the best candidates are generally healthy men and women who have tried diet and exercise to target unwanted fat to no avail. SmartLipo treats the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, flanks, back, upper arms, double chin and neck, and even facial fat. A consultation with Dr. Brenman is a great way to get started.

What is the Procedure Like?
Another benefit of SmartLipo is that no general anesthesia is necessary. Local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area, so you may feel some slight pressure, but it’s mild and not uncomfortable. Dr. Brenman delivers the SmartLipo energy to the fatty tissues through a small laser fiber inserted through a tiny, well-camouflaged incision. Once the fat is melted, gentle suction removes them entirely. Your treatment area will be bandaged and wrapped in compression garments to support the newly sculpted tissues. The treatment only takes 90 minutes to 2 hours, and you’re ready to recover at home.
Downtime and Recovery
Because SmartLipo is gentler on the tissues and promotes better coagulation, bruising and swelling are very light. The compression garment is required for about a week, but you’ll begin to feel normal after only 24-48 hours. Many patients have the procedure on a Friday and return to work by Monday.
What Results Can I Expect?
With less swelling to overcome, you’ll experience visible results sooner as well, usually within a few weeks. Improvements continue to accumulate for 3-6 months as your tissues fully settle. The fat Dr. Brenman removes is gone for good, but a healthy diet and exercise regimen is recommended so your results last for years. The control SmartLipo gives Dr. Brenman during the sculpting process means your final outcome has a greater chance of success. You’ll look slimmer and your skin will be tighter. When you look good, it can change how you carry yourself, so you stand taller with a more confident air. These are the reasons SmartLipo is an investment in yourself and your overall quality of life. It’s about more than looking good. It’s about feeling like your best, healthiest self.
