When diet and exercise aren’t improving your problem areas, Smartlipo® laser lipo in Houston, TX offers dramatic, long-lasting results with one treatment. Laser liposuction uses laser energy to liquefy targeted fat cells before they are suctioned out through a cannula, which eases the removal process. Liquefied fat also requires smaller incisions, which can help to reduce downtime. Laser lipo has the added benefit of toning the surrounding skin, revealing trimmer, slimmer, smoother contours.
Laser lipo in Houston can help reduce excess fat on almost any area, including:
- Face and neck
- Upper arms
- Waist (love handles, muffin top, belly pooch)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Male breasts (gynecomastia)

FAQ: Laser Lipo in Houston, TX
What will happen during my laser lipo session?
Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may receive laser lipo in our office with a local anesthetic. A tiny incision will be made so that a fiber optic cannula can deliver laser energy directly to subcutaneous fat cells. The laser energy melts the fat, allowing it to be easily removed with gentle suction. As an added benefit, tissue around the area is tightened, firming your contours even more.
How long does laser lipo take?
Laser lipo sessions last between 1.5 and 2 hours, depending on the number and size of the areas treated.
When will I notice results?
Optimal results will be seen 2 to 6 months after your treatment as any swelling gradually subsides.
How much downtime is there with laser lipo?
Downtime will vary from patient to patient, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Typically, patients require about a week to 2 weeks of downtime, during which time strenuous activities should be avoided. A light compression garment or wrap should be worn for the first few weeks to promote healing in a smooth shape.
What are the most common side effects of laser lipo?
You may experience some swelling or bruising at the treatment site. There is also the potential of a tiny scar from the incision, about the size of a small freckle.
How many laser lipo treatments will I need in Houston, TX?
For most people, results can be achieved with one treatment.
How long does laser lipo last?
Once fat cells are removed, they can never return. However, you will need to maintain a healthy eating and exercise plan to enjoy long-lasting results.
