SmartLipo Procedures in Westfield
NJ Plastic Surgeon Helping Sculpt a More Beautiful You
SmartLipo is also known as LaserBodySculptingSM. The procedure incorporates
conventional liposuction with laser energy. "Pretreating" the
treatment area with laser energy causes the lipids in unwanted fat cells
to liquefy on contact. By first liquefying lipids in cells, laser light
facilitates a more precise, less traumatic process. After our Westfield
plastic surgeon pretreats the fat with a laser, it is very gently suctioned
from the body with a tiny cannula.
Due to the ease with which treatment is performed compared to traditional liposuction, patients enjoy the ability to complete their procedure with only local anesthetic, as opposed to the general anesthesia typically required for these procedures. When only given local anesthetic, patients are more likely to achieve their desired outcome with less risk and easier recovery.*
Liposuction is a procedure that has been offered for decades. Patients of Burnett Plastic Surgery are treated with the highest level of care and the most recent techniques, which means they receive laser assisted liposuction rather than traditional technique.
- Smart Lipo is more like liposculpture, allowing your surgeon to perfect areas such as the:
- Love handles
- Chest, for male breast reduction
Physical appearance is a factor in how good we feel about ourselves. When small pockets of fat develop on the arms, hips, tummy, or other areas, we may spend seemingly endless years trying to reduce them and mask them. Even when these steps do not work, there is hope.

Types of Sedation
Traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. One of the differences with Smart Lipo is that this treatment requires only local anesthesia. This slight change makes a big difference when it comes to the risks involved in care, as well as the immediate recovery process.
Minimize Recovery Time with SmartLipo
SmartLipo is the procedure of choice for men and women who want to sculpt body parts without having to take weeks to recover. Because laser liquefies fat within the cells, the entire procedure is gentler on tissues in the treatment area. With Smart Lipo, there is less bleeding, which means there is less risk of bruising after surgery. Many of our patients find light activity very comfortable within two days after treatment.
Liposuction has been a popular form of body sculpting for many years. As
with many procedures in cosmetic surgery, the way in which physicians
help patients achieve their aesthetic goals with liposuction has improved
significantly. Patients of Dr. Carlos Burnett can undergo Smartlipo in
our Westfield NJ office without the side effects known to this procedure.
Using laser-assisted Smartlipo LaserBodySculptingSM, Dr. Burnett achieves the desired result without the invasiveness of traditional
lipo, and without the lengthy, possibly complicated recovery.
Smartlipo LaserBodySculptingSM is a surgical procedure that can be performed on various areas of the body, including the neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, back, buttocks, and more. Safe and efficient, this laser-assisted procedure goes beyond conventional liposuction to create optimal results without the stress on the body. Patients find that they can return to work and normal activities within days rather than weeks due to the accelerated healing process.
Incorporating laser technology into the liposuction procedure has led to significant benefits. The laser energy is delivered as an intense beam of light. This energy targets unwanted fat cells and destroys them on contact, liquefying fat. Simultaneously, the laser stimulates collagen production so that skin becomes tighter after the procedure, and underlying tissue retains this new elasticity. Because the laser does not affect blood vessels or nearby tissues, the Smartlipo LaserBodySculptingSM procedure causes less bleeding and less bruising than conventional tumescent liposuction.*
