SmartLipo™ in Charleston County, SC

Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide SmartLipo™ laser liposuction treatments to the residents of Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities, with offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head.

What is SmartLipo™?

Unfortunately, it’s only natural that fat accumulates in areas such as the hips, knees and under the arms. However, it can also be resistant to diet and exercise. If you find yourself at the pool wrapped in a towel to hide your thighs or wishing you could wear those sleeveless tops, SmartLipo™ can help by removing excess fat permanently. With SmartLipo™ you can get a new silhouette with results visible in a week. SmartLipo™ uses local anesthesia to numb only the specific area of the body being treated, so you’re awake during the procedure. The SmartLipo™ laser liposuction fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body; the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes, and the fat cells are permanently destroyed. The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because SmartLipo™ actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin. With SmartLipo™, you’re in the doctor’s office one day and turning heads the next. Are you ready to reshape your body and reshape your life?

What are the Benefits of SmartLipo™?

The benefits of SmartLipo™ include that there is no general anesthetic needed, there is minimal scarring, a short downtime, and it effectively slims the area of treatment. SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and neck, permanently eliminating fat. SmartLipo™ provides dramatic improvements with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction.

What is the Procedure for SmartLipo™?

Since SmartLipo™ is performed under local anesthesia, you will visit Dr. Schimpf for a painless in-office procedure that typically lasts one to two hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas. Because of the anesthesia, you will not feel pain, rather a sensation comparable to tugging or pressure. After the procedure, you may experience some light bruising and swelling and will be required to wear a compression garment for about a week to help with the healing process. You will be able to return to normal activities within a day or two. For most patients, results are achieved in just one SmartLipo™ treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement seen over three to six months. Since fat cells are permanently destroyed in the treated area, your results will be long-lasting, however, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

What is the Cost of SmartLipo™?

The total cost of your Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery SmartLipo™ treatment will vary based upon how much treatment is required. During your consultation with Dr. Schimpf, we will develop a personalized treatment plan, and you will be informed of your treatment costs and methods of payment. We are happy to accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards. Financing is also available so that our SmartLipo™ treatments are affordable to all of our patients.
