Many wish to remove fat from problem areas but are unable to do so with diet and exercise. A SmartLipo® procedure performed by Dr. Howard Hu can help patients in Valencia, Santa Clarita, and the surrounding areas of California achieve a shapelier form.
Liposuction has long been hailed as an ideal way to reduce fatty deposits in certain areas of the body. SmartLipo® is an advanced procedure that results in fewer side effects and more dramatic results, while still remaining minimally invasive. It involves the use of laser beams to help break up fat cells and make them easier to remove.
This specific form of liposuction (laser-assisted) provides patients with firmer, tighter skin since SmartLipo® also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the body. This is something that isn’t possible with traditional liposuction, meaning you should notice results that are more dramatic. You should also experience less swelling and bruising.

SmartLipo® is performed under local anesthesia, which numbs only the area being worked on. Dr. Hu will make a very small incision in order to insert a cannula, which is a long, thin tube, just beneath the skin.
This cannula delivers laser beams in three different wavelengths to heat up fatty tissue and break it up. At the same time, the skin is also stimulated to produce collagen and elastin. Once fat cells are broken up, they are simply suctioned away. No sutures whatsoever are needed to close the wound.
