SmartLipo - FAQ

Updated May 13, 2019

How does the SmartLipo work?

The surgery is performed through one small incision, made on the body part that will undergo the surgery. Special tube (cannula) is inserted into the incision and a laser beam breaks apart fat cells. Thanks to using different lengths of laser, the SmartLipo offers less bleeding, bruising and swelling! After the laser treatment, the liquid fat is drained away from the desired area. This small incision will heal very fast and leave almost an invisible scar. 


What are the benefits of SmartLipo?

Thanks to using laser, SmartLipo offers you many benefits:

  • Shorter healing time
  • Only one small incision is made
  • After the surgery you will have one small, almost invisible scar
  • Your skin is tighter due to laser treatment
  • No need to have general anesthesia
  • Almost immediate results after the surgery
  • Your stay in Poland is much shorter, than after standard liposuction

Those are only a few benefits of SmartLipo. If you would like to find out about more, please contact our patient advisers and they will be thrilled to help you.
