Laser lipolysis (commonly known as laser lipo) is a form of liposuction which uses local anaesthetic and lasers. Without the risk of full general anaesthetic or massive open wounds, the procedure is said to be a lot safer than the traditional liposuction methods.
Advanced laser lipolysis is not made for obese people – rather, it is a way of getting rid of stubborn fat that diet and exercise won’t shift: Think saddle bags, muffin tops and bingo wings.

What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo was launched in the UK in June 2006 and is a revolutionary evolution of the standard cosmetic surgery procedure, liposuction.
Often marketed as Laser Lipolysis or Laseripolisi (often misspelled Lipolisis) , the procedure works by using a laser to target fatty areas.
