Dr. Stephenson offers Atlanta area patients a new way to achieve a slimmer figure. Traditional liposuction is a great option for many patients, but for individuals seeking a less invasive approach for fat removal, SMARTLIPO is a great alternative. This is a laser-assisted liposuction that uses a laser at the end of a small cannula to melt fat beneath the skin. One the fat is turned into liquid it is safely and effectively removed. SMARTLIPO also stimulates the production of collagen, which greatly assists in skin tightening. Because the incision are small, there is little downtime and minimal to no scarring.

Patients that desire fat removal on larger sections of the body where fat pockets are evident may be better candidates for traditional liposuction. Those who have smaller areas that need improvement, do not have sagging skin and wish to avoid the downtime of major surgery, would be considered good candidates for SMARTLIPO. Dr. Stephenson performs SMARTLIPO on patients who have fatty pockets under the chin, as well as smaller areas where fat removal is desired.
What to Expect
SMARTLIPO is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a significant amount of downtime. The laser application promotes tissue coagulation so there is less bleeding, swelling and bruising. Patients can generally return to work within the same week as the procedure. Optimal results can be seen within 4-6 months. Although the fat cells that are removed are permanent, new fat cells can form over time. To optimize long-term results, patients should adhere to a healthy lifestyle and diet.
SMARTLIPO fees can cost from as low as $2,000 up to $7,000 depending on the size of the treatment area, how many areas are being addressed, and how many sessions it takes to reach the desired results.
