Do you still have stubborn areas of excess fat that don’t seem to go away with diet and exercise? Whether you’re trying to fit in your clothes better or have been fighting a never-ending battle to slim down certain areas of your body, you just may be a candidate for SmartLipo. It is a revolutionary type of liposuction that utilizes the latest laser technology to rapidly dissolve fat while firming the surrounding skin. The FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure results in less bleeding, swelling, and bruising, and gets you back to your daily activities quicker than with traditional liposuction. SmartLipo is easily performed in the office of Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, under local anesthesia for safe results.
It uses smaller instruments and advanced laser technology to safely and efficiently remove excess fat from areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the neck, arms, abdomen, back, and thighs. Because of this unique laser technology, there is also the benefit of skin tightening that continues to occur as the healing progresses.
"I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr. Ho's work! I recently underwent smart lipo procedure on my arms, aka "bat wings," upper back, "buffalo hump" and "bra fat" Dr. Ho and his staff were extremely professional, attentive, answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable and at ease. The procedure lasted for approximately two+ hours. I was awake for maybe half of the time (as I was given an oral sedative) with absolutely no pain. I was warned there could be post op procedure discomfort and was given pain meds. I am happy to report I had no pain, did not have to take any meds and by the third day was up to doing my regular activities, other than the gym. I am extremely busy working part-time, soccer, basketball mother of 2 boys and can't afford any downtime! Thanks to Dr. Ho recommending Smart Lipo, it was the best choice for me! My results thus far have been amazing and the skin tightening I feel is even more incredible! If you are looking for a surgeon that is up to date on the latest technologies and will listen and customize the surgery to your specific needs, you MUST call Dr Ho! Hands down one of the BEST!"- Y. / Google / Sep 09, 2016

"Smart Lipo of the Neck/chin - When Kybella didn't work, I turned to Dr. Ho for Smart Lipo of the chin/neck area. If I had the choice, I would have had the surgery again in a heartbeat. Recovery was comfortable and I was up and moving in no time! I resumed work a couple of days later! I'm so thrilled with my results thus far!!!!!"- J. / RealSelf / May 02, 2017

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if SmartLipo is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for SmartLipo:
- Have unwanted abdominal, neck, arm, back, and/or thigh fat
- Are at or near their goal weight
- Are healthy
- Have fat resistant to diet and exercise
- Want a minimally invasive procedure
- Desire long-lasting results
What to Expect
SmartLipo is a same-day procedure performed in the office and the amount of time needed will depend on what areas are being treated and how much work has to be done. This is accomplished using light sedation, such as Valium, and local anesthesia for comfort. Very small incisions are made to allow access to the treatment areas, which allow the introduction of a very small laser fiber and other instruments. The advanced thermal laser technology can safely and efficiently remove fat, contour, and re-shape areas of the face, neck, arms, abdomen, back, and thighs.
At the same time, the laser is utilized to tighten the overlying skin. Finally, the majority of the excess fat is then gently eliminated from the body through suction. After the procedure is completed, a compression garment is worn over the treated areas for support as the healing process continues.
Although individual results will vary, an immediate difference may be seen with continual improvement as healing takes place. The fat that is suctioned out should be permanently eliminated; however, should you gain weight, areas of your body still containing abundant fat cells may enlarge. For best and long-lasting results, we recommend maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program. SmartLipo is one of the most successful liposuction treatments due to its innovative technology and effectiveness in reducing excess fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
