SmartLipo procedure is quite simple. A surgeon makes a very small incision in the desired area. Via this incision, the surgeon inserts a cannula (small tube), which is used to introduce the laser. Laser beam is pointed to fatty areas and the fat cells are destroyed inside of your body. After the first part of this procedure, the surgeon drains the liquid fat out of your body. The last step in SmartLipo surgery is to close the incision and apply dressing to the wound.
