What Areas Can Be Treated With Smartlipo?
Smartlipo can be used to remove diet-resistant fat almost anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms and chin. In fact, with Smartlipo, Dr. Stridde is able to treat areas that are too small for traditional liposuction methods. Unfortunately, some individuals have not had satisfactory results from previous treatments with other liposuction techniques. Smartlipo is an excellent procedure for improving and refining areas previously treated with other methods.
Your Smartlipo Procedure
To begin the procedure, Dr. Stridde makes very small incisions on the periphery of the area to be treated. At our practice near Seattle, the tumescent liposuction technique is used. A sterile solution containing a local anesthetic is injected into the treatment area. Next, Dr. Stridde inserts the superfine Smartlipo laser probe, which disrupts the targeted fat cells. The laser technology is specifically designed to target fat cells while producing minimal injury to the surrounding tissue.
This laser light also coagulates small blood vessels, thus minimizing bleeding and reducing bruising. Other benefits of the Smartlipo device are that the extremely fine laser probe allows for very accurate fat contouring, and heating of the undersurface of the skin results in improved skin tightening and contraction.
By using the latest Smartlipo Triplex system, Dr. Stridde is able to reduce treatment time and improve tissue tightening. In some cases, he may use Smartlipo and VASER LipoSelection® in combination to achieve optimal body contouring results.
Smartlipo is an incredibly versatile procedure and can be used to enhance other body contouring procedures such as a body lift or a tummy tuck. Smartlipo can also be combined with breast lift or breast augmentation as part of a Mommy Makeover.

Recovery After Surgery
Recovery from Smartlipo may involve less bruising and swelling than older approaches to liposuction. However, recovery depends on the amount and location of areas being treated.
Dr. Stridde will provide you with prescription pain medication and compression bandages to help keep you comfortable during recuperation and to help maximize your results.
