Northern Virginia SmartLipo™ Laser Liposuction
While diet and exercise are essential to overall health and to looking your best, there are times when even the best habits don’t deliver the results we want. Fat deposits on the upper arms, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and other trouble spots are notoriously difficult to exercise away. Fortunately, Chrysalis Plastic Surgery in Sterling, Virginia, offers solutions targeted at treating these problem areas, including SmartLipo™ laser liposuction, which offers a more effective, less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction.
How does SmartLipo® MPX work? The procedure is performed in the comfort, privacy, and convenience of our Sterling, Virginia SmartLipo center using a one-millimeter cannula (or small tube), which is inserted into the skin. Using two different wavelengths, a laser fiber inside the cannula directs energy at fat cells, which rupture, turn to liquid, and are drained away.
SmartLipo offers two main benefits over traditional liposuction. First of all, overall results are better because SmartLipo firms and tones skin while it removes fat. The laser wavelengths used to “melt” fat also work to contract the collagen in the skin, resulting in smoother, firmer skin. This reduces the need for follow-up surgeries to remove excess skin, which is often left behind by traditional liposuction.
Second, because the cannula used in SmartLipo is significantly smaller than that used in traditional liposuction, SmartLipo causes much less trauma and can be performed using a local anesthetic in our Virginia laser liposuction center. Recovery is faster, incisions are smaller (stitches are not required!), and the procedure can be performed in quick one to three-hour sessions. The advances in liposuction treatments introduced by SmartLipo mean that there has never been a better time to seek laser liposuction treatment.

Virginia Smart Lipo Procedure and Recovery
At our Sterling, Virginia laser liposuction center, Smart Lipo provides enhanced results and a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction. Our patients usually return to work and other routine activities the next day, while conventional liposuction patients usually require several weeks to recover. Smart Lipo causes less bruising and trauma than traditional liposuction, and it delivers superior aesthetic results, with firmer skin tone in the treated areas. So, follow-up surgery to remove excess skin is usually unnecessary – unlike traditional liposuction, which can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin. The ideal candidate for Smart Lipo is in good health, and maintains good diet and exercise habits.
