Laser Lipo


Laser Lipo


Whether you have lost weight or maintained a healthy weight throughout your life, localized areas of fat can form over time and mar your body profile. You may be distressed to find these isolated bulges do not respond to gym workouts or calorie-counting, leaving you at a loss as to how to eliminate them. The good news is there are effective ways to say goodbye to stubborn fat and hello to a smoother, leaner body contour.


Dr. Mordkovich uses a variety of liposuction techniques that allow him to tailor treatment to the precise needs of each of his patients. Traditional techniques yield excellent results but require general anesthesia and more recovery time. There is another liposuction technique that is considerably less invasive, thanks to the use of laser energy that melts the fat cells for easier removal. This method is known as SmartLipo and uses laser heat to tighten the skin in the treatment area even as it melts fat cells away. The result is a smoother, firmer body contour with less trauma to surrounding skin and tissue overall.



Laser Lipo Can Be Used to Contour the Following Problem Areas:

    Upper arms
    Upper back
    Inner and outer thigh
    Neck and underneath the chin
    Hips and Flanks (love handles)


At your first appointment with Dr. Mordkovich, the two of you will discuss your aesthetic goals in detail to determine whether SmartLipo may work best for you. Doctor Mordkovich will evaluate the degree of your skin laxity to see if SmartLipo will provide sufficient tightening or if another procedure would offer better results. He will also assess the amount of fat you want to eliminate to recommend the best liposuction technique for your needs.


Laser liposuction is a unique liposuction technique that can be performed using local anesthesia, reducing anesthesia-related risks during and after your procedure. Dr. Mordkovich inserts a narrow cannula that contains a laser fiber into the fat deposit. The fiber delivers the heat energy to the fatty layers, liquefying the fat without disrupting your healthy tissue. The laser energy also coagulates your blood during treatment, reducing bleeding and minimizing bruising and pain following your procedure.

SmartLipo takes an hour or two to complete, depending on how much fat needs to be removed and how many treatment areas will be addressed during your session. Incisions used to insert the cannula are too small to require sutures, so a compression dressing will be placed over them when the treatment is completed. You may also be given a compression garment to wear that will reduce swelling after the procedure and promote healing to the treated area.

Recovery from SmartLipo tends to be quicker and more comfortable than the recuperation from traditional liposuction. You should feel like resuming your usual activities within a matter of days. Bruising and swelling will begin to subside within about one week, revealing the full results of your procedure.

You should achieve your full body contouring results after just one SmartLipo treatment. Those results will be permanent as long as you avoid adding any pounds after your procedure. Skin tightening will also be long-lasting, although the effects of aging will eventually take their toll once again and you may need additional treatment to maintain your firmer, smoother body contour.
