Sometimes diet and exercise isn’t enough, or you’re finding that you’re not shedding fat in the areas that you want.

Everything today is instantaneous and procedures such as SmartLipo has little to no downtime, and is now being offered in our office in El Paso, Texas.
What is SmartLipo?
This is a procedure popularly used for body contouring. It’s an alternative to old fashioned liposuction that is being used by doctors all over the country. It can be used on most areas of the body, including the face, legs, buttox, arms, abdomen, back, neck, thighs, and breasts. It can even correct defects from traditional liposuction. It’s minimally invasive, using laser technology to target the fat cells. This means quicker recovery time so that you can get back to your daily life.
How does it Work?
SmarLipo is minimally invasive, meaning a small incision must be made for it to work. The doctor will begin by making a small incision in the target area; this is where they will insert a laser-tipped tube. The tube is very narrow, but long enough to reach the fat cells. The doctor will then move the tube back and forth along the targeted area, using the laser to heat and rupture the fat cells. Your body will dispose of the dead cells naturally.
Who is a Candidate for SmartLipo?
This procedure isn’t necessarily for correcting obesity. If you are very overweight then this may not be the procedure for you. Overall you should be in good health, and just looking to tone and tighten your body. Stubborn, small pockets of fat are better for SmartLipo. You must have some excessive fat in order to have this procedure. It is not used for excess or loose skin from weight loss. If you have had liposuction in the past and suffer from defects, SmartLipo may be able to assist you.
SmartLipo has long term results that you should begin to notice shortly after the procedure. Because this procedure is only minimally invasive, there is little bruising and bleeding compared to traditional liposuction. You can expect to recover in a timely matter and go about your daily routine within a day or two. Individual results vary, though you should be able to expect results similar to the ones shown. Results are based on the patient, the target area for the treatment, as well as how the doctor performing the procedure.
