Routinely used in dental procedures, lasik eye surgery, reconstructive work and cosmetic procedures - including liposuction - laser technology is what sets SmartLipo™ apart from its competition.

The medical staff at Remi St. John is expertly trained to perform the SmartLipo™ Laser Procedure. Dr. Dimowo is a board certified surgeon and anesthesiologist - a distinction that makes the difference between an inexperienced and expensive liposuction procedure gone wrong and a safe, professional, successful and permanent SmartLipo™ procedure.

The word “laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Precise and safe, today’s medical-grade lasers work by creating a powerful light beam that is adjusted to a specific frequency range.

SmartLipo™ is different in that it uses a carefully calibrated laser to liquefy fat deposits through the top layers of the patient's skin. The laser actually ruptures fat cells, and the resulting oily, liquid substance is then removed through a tiny incision in the skin by the surgeon. The small laser can also seal blood vessels as it zaps fat, so there is less swelling, bleeding and bruising than with traditional liposuction. Research has shown that little, if any, fat is reabsorbed back into the body. The minimal invasiveness of the procedure allows patients to see faster results and to experience fewer complications.

In addition, SmartLipo™ patients need only a local anesthetic for this procedure, whereas liposuction requires general anesthesia. Because the patient is not completely unconscious, SmartLipo™ carries much fewer risks than traditional liposuction, and the recovery time is much shorter.

SmartLipo™ Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the SmartLipo™ procedure take?
The SmartLipo™ procedure takes an average of 2–3 hours per session.

How many SmartLipo™ treatments are required?
Most patients typically require only one treatment. Each SmartLipo™session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated. SmartLipo™ can also be used for “touch-ups” and revisions to previously treated areas.

Does SmartLipo™ treat cellulite?
The SmartLipo™ procedure will improve the body's shape and may reduce cellulite to a certain degree.

What is the long-term outcome for most people?
Most patients can see results immediately following the SmartLipo™ procedure, and they can expect their skin to return to normal within three months.

However, as with traditional liposuction, you will need to practice patience since the full SmartLipo™ results may not be visible for up to a year. The more fat that was removed, the longer it will take to achieve maximum results, as your body needs to adapt to a more significant shape change.

Do I have to stay in the hospital?
No. SmartLipo™ is performed as an out-patient procedure under local anesthesia. You won’t be required to stay in the hospital, since recovery from SmartLipo™ works best within the comfort of your home.

What if I've already had regular liposuction?
SmartLipo™ may be extremely effective for improving upon body areas that have been previously treated with traditional liposuction. With the SmartLipo™procedure Dr. Dimowo can further sculpt or contour those areas on the body that have “droopy” skin, especially if you are a relatively thin, healthy person who wants additional toning and tightening.

What are the main advantages of SmartLipo™?

  • It offers the smoothest, best body-contouring results.
  • It entails only a short recovery time.
  • Minimal discomfort is involved.
  • It is safer than traditional liposuction.
  • It tightens the skin around the treatment area.
  • It is more affordable than traditional liposuction.
  • The results are permanent.

Can SmartLipo™ work on areas that regular liposuction can't?
Yes. Since the aiming beam at the tip of the SmartLipo™ laser allows the doctor to know exactly where he or she is at all times, the procedure is very precise. As such, SmartLipo™ is very effective in body areas that are not suitable for traditional liposuction, such as the face, neck, back and knees.

Does the SmartLipo™ procedure hurt?
Since the SmartLipo™ procedure is performed under local anesthesia, there is very little pain or discomfort involved. You may feel a minor stinging sensation and an impression of tugging at your skin during the SmartLipo™ treatment, but these discomforts are minimal. Dr. Dimowo is also a specialist in Pain Management - meaning you will be under the care of a doctor who can best determine what sort of pain management is best suited for you.
