In these situations, liposuction may be an excellent option to put the finishing touches on all the hard work you’ve already done through your diet and exercise regimen.

What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo™ is similar to traditional liposuction in that it is not a weight loss treatment, but targets specific areas of the body where stubborn areas of fat are resistant to diet and exercise. However, unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ uses a precise, powerful laser light beam to permanently melt fat and/or tighten skin without the need for general anesthesia or IV sedation. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, there are fewer risks compared with traditional liposuction techniques, and you will have almost no downtime. In most instances, you should be able to return to work the next day.
There are no stitches or unsightly scars, and you will experience less bruising and swelling than with traditional liposuction techniques. With SmartLipo™, you can achieve results that are dramatic, yet very natural looking.
Dr. Berger can use SmartLipo™ to remove targeted pockets of fat from just about any region of your body, including the:
- Jaw line
- Male breast
Since SmartLipo™ is so effective at removing excess fat and tightening skin in the facial region, Cynosure, the maker of the SmartLipo™ device has come out with a state of the art new technology called PrecisionTX, which specifically focuses on the face, lower face, jawline and neck. Dr. Berger uses this technique as part of a non-surgical facelift. Check out some of our before and after photos here.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does the SmartLipo Procedure Take?
The SmartLipo procedure is beneficial for many reasons but one of those is that it is done under local anesthesia. Due to this, it has little-to-no downtime, only uses small incisions, and can easily fit into your schedule. The procedure takes about 2 hours to complete.
How Many SmartLipo Treatments Are Necessary?
Many patients who undergo SmartLipo only need to get one treatment to reach their desired goals. Dr. Berger will go over your cosmetic goals and create a specific treatment plan for you.
How Long Do the Results from SmartLipo Last?
Since the SmartLipo procedure permanently removes fat cells it produces long-lasting results. The fat cells in the treatment area will not come back. As long as you stay healthy then your results should be permanent. But it is still possible to gain weight in other areas of the body.
What is the Recovery Time for SmartLipo?
There is no bed rest. It is generally recommended that patients rest for the first few days following treatment. Every day patients improve. Usually, you can return to work as long as you do not have a strenuous job. Exercise can typically be resumed after a week following the SmartLipo procedure.
Is Sedation Used with SmartLipo?
At Rejuvalife, our treatments are done using minimally invasive techniques and technologies to remove fat. The SmartLipo procedure cis done under local anesthesia and light oral sedation. Recovery is minimal and most patients resume their normal activites in a few days. Depending on the amount of fat needing to be removed as well as your comfort level, it can done using either local or general anesthesia, but that is not needed for a Smartlipo procedure. During a consultation appointment with Dr. Berger, he will go over the process and pre-and post-care as well as your concerns for the procedure.
