SmartLipo Laser Liposuction
The FDA approved SmartLipo™ procedure permanently removes unwanted fatty deposits that cling to your abdomen, thighs, flanks, or arms.
James Kern, M.D. is one of Houston’s leading liposuction doctors with many years of experience as a Houston Laser Surgeon. He has performed thousands of liposuction procedures on both men and women to accomplish what diet and exercise couldn’t. The procedure destroys fat cells using a fine laser to concentrate on problematic areas while enhancing your body’s contours. The same laser beam stimulates your collagen, which in turn helps tighten and firm the skin.
The minimally invasive procedure uses local anesthesia and is performed in the comfort and privacy of our in-house surgical suite. Most patients return to normal activities in a few days. Benefits are usually seen at the end of the first week and most patients see complete results within six months. View our patients’ outstanding results.
Men often choose SmartLipo to treat Gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts. Dr. Kern suggests SmartLipo as a good alternative to traditional surgery that requires hospitalization and an extended recovery period.
SmartLipo™ is even more affordable than you think. Our financial partners offer low monthly payment plans at very competitive rates.

How Does SmartLipo Laser Liposuction Work?
SmartLipo laser body contouring is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets and permanently removes fat cells in trouble spots such as the abdomen, love handles (flanks), arms, thighs, chin, braline, and chest. If your problem areas won’t respond to exercise and diet, SmartLipo can provide real improvement with minimal discomfort, and a far more rapid recovery than traditional liposuction. SmartLipo uses local anesthesia to numb specific areas the doctor is treating. Dr. Kern feels that this helps to make SmartLipo a safer procedure for our patients because they will NOT be exposed to the potential risks associated with general anesthesia. In fact, most of our patients go back to work and resume normal activities in just a few days.
Our experienced liposuction surgeon, James Kern, M.D. inserts the narrow SmartLipo laser fiber through a very small tube into the skin. The laser ruptures the fat cells in the skin, permanently destroying and liquefying the fat cells. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. The heat from the fine laser used in SmartLipo can also help tighten skin.
SmartLipo can reshape your body with minimal downtime or discomfort. Results can be seen in a few days with additional improvement over the next 4 to 6 months.

SmartLipo Laser Liposuction for Men
When diet and exercise fail, more and more men are turning to SmartLipo laser-assisted liposuction for the physique they have worked for but have been unable to achieve. SmartLipo is a low-downtime, minimally invasive procedure which permanently destroys fatty deposits on the abdomen, love handles (flanks), back, chest, neck and chin. The result is a trimmer, more contoured body with far more rapid recovery than is achieved with traditional liposuction. Experienced liposuction surgeon, James Kern, M.D., targets and destroys pockets of unwanted fat with the fine and precise SmartLipo laser fiber. He then gently suctions the liquefied fat to reveal finer, more sculpted body contours. All SmartLipo procedures are performed in our in-office surgery suite using local anesthesia which Dr. Kern says removes the risks of general anesthesia and speeds up recovery time. Most men resume normal activities in just a few days. Many have their SmartLipo procedure on a Thursday or Friday and return to work Monday!

SmartLipo vs. Liposuction: What’s the difference?
|SMARTLIPO AND LASER BODY SCULPTING||TRADITIONAL LIPOSUCTION|
|Anesthesia||Only local anesthetic is used – Patient is alert and awake||General or IV Sedation – Patient is unconscious|
|Recovery||Easy and brief. Most patients can go back to work in a day or two||Patients often cannot go back to work for 1-4 weeks|
|Bruising||Minimal to no bruising because small, fine instruments gently remove emulsified fat||Moderate to severe due to arger instrument use to remove chunks of fatty tissue|
|Scars||Very small incisions leave little to no scarring||Larger incisions to allow use of more aggressive suction|
|Risks||Very low rate of complications because of the AWAKE liposculpture technique||More significant complications are possible with general anesthesia|
|Outcome||Reduction of fat deposits and subtle sculpting with some skin tightening||Use of larger instruments may lead to more contour irregularities|
|Compression Garment||Worn for 2 week minimum with best results when worn 4-6 weeks||Garment worn 4 to 8 weeks|
|Procedure Location||Performed in our medical office||Hospital or Specialty Surgical Center|
|Cost||Less than traditional liposuction||Generally higher due to use of general anesthesia and larger facilities charges|
