Laser Assisted Liposuction

Laser Assisted Liposuction (Smart LIpo) Santa Ana & San Clemente

Here at Advance Laser & Cosmetics in Orange County cosmetic surgery provider Dr. Roham offers his clients the latest advances in laser and liposuction surgery. The latest FDA-approved addition to bodysculpting is laser liposuction technology. The Laser liposuction also known as smartlipo or coollipo was considered the most popular new cosmetic procedure in 2007 nationwide. The laser liposuction enables the melting and removal of fat from a very tiny needle puncture while at the same time helps tighten the skin and improve stretch marks. Laser liposuction can be used by itself or as an adjunct to traditional liposuction to enhance the surgical results. Dr. Roham is one of the most experienced cosmetic surgeons and knows how to utilize these technologies to address your body sculpting needs.

How does the Laser Lipo Work?

Laser liposuction (Liposculpture) uses a tiny (1mm) micro-cannula (metal tube) housing a smaller laser fiber which is inserted beneath the skin and directly into the fat layers. The laser energy acts to liquefy the fat cells, allowing them to be gently suctioned by cannula, while also helping to control the level of bleeding and providing a superior recovery. Additionally, the Laser Lipo acts to contract and tighten the collagen in the overlying skin, providing a smoother and tighter look as the end result.


The tiny micro-laser is able to contour small areas that previously were difficult or impossible to treat, including the chin, neck, and upper arms. For larger areas (like the thighs, stomach, and back), where substantial fat removal is required, Dr. Roham will often combine the Smartlipo procedure with traditional tumescent liposuction techniques in a ‘laser-assisted liposuction’

Candidates for Smart Lipo Laser Liposuction

The ideal laser liposuction candidate is generally in good health and within 30 lbs. of their ideal body weight. It is important to have a realistic expectation, as Laser Liposuction does not (at least alone) result in a significant level of weight loss, but rather provide body sculpting and are able to address stubborn fat deposits. If you are seeking larger weight loss it is possible that other liposuction procedures (or even bariatric surgery) may be more applicable. Dr. Roham can help you determine if that’s the case.
