Smartlipo Laser Assisted Liposuction, Boise
Take off what dieting and exercise won’t…
Silk Touch Med Spa introduced Smartlipo or Smart Lipo in the Fall of 2008 to Eagle, Idaho. Dr. Brian Kerr was also the first doctor to combine Smartlipo with Vaser Liposuction technology in the Boise Area. Combination treatments, developed by Silk Touch Med Spa, have provided exceptional results for our patients in need of this type of procedure. Smartlipo™ is an innovative procedure for removing excess body fat and firming loose skin. This is a gentle procedure that can be done quickly and generally more safely than traditional liposuction. There is minimal pain, a quick recovery time and visible results almost immediately. Approved by the FDA in the fall of 2006, Smartlipo has proven to be one of the safest cosmetic procedures.
How Does SmartLipo Work?
SmartLipo™ (Smart Lipo) uses a paperclip—thin laser fiber which is inserted into a very tiny incision. The fat is melted by the laser in such a way that the body doesn’t experience trauma that’s associated with traditional liposuction. In a traditional liposuction procedure, the patient is put under, opened up and solid chunks of fat are sucked out. Local anesthesia is used in this procedure, and the client walks out in an hour or two. Several areas of the body may be treated at one time. Clients are back on their feet within just a few days. Many may go back to work the next day. Laser lipo is comparable in price to traditional liposuction.

Tumescent Liposuction or Liposuction done by local anesthesia
Recently the Smartlipo procedure has earned the reputation of being quite safe. Using tumescent anesthesia is key. Liposuction may be done totally by local anesthesia with virtually no blood loss.
What are the benefits of tumescent liposuction?
Local anesthesia used in the tumescent technique for liposuction is so effective that patients may no longer need intravenous sedatives, narcotic analgesics, or general anesthesia. As a result of the widespread capillary constriction caused by the epinephrine in the anesthetic solution, there is minimal bleeding during and after liposuction. This is a major improvement in the liposuction technique compared to the older methods that simply use general anesthesia.
Rapid Healing after Tumescent Liposuction
After tumescent liposuction, there is a certain amount of blood-tinged local anesthetic solution that remains under the skin. This excess fluid is either slowly absorbed over several weeks into the blood stream, or it can be rapidly removed by drainage through skin incisions and absorbed by special absorptive pads. Our Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and you can actually walk out of our office!
