SmartLipo is a laser liposuction technology that uses dual laser wavelengths to sculpt and tighten the body and neck. Dr. Jonov uses SmartLipo for Seattle patients seeking an alternative to traditional liposuction. In addition to the 1064nm laser wavelength utilized by the original SmartLipo system, Dr. Jonov also uses a 1319nm laser that speeds fat extraction and promotes skin tightening. Both of these advanced systems target fat cells to improve skin tone while promoting collagen growth. Dr. Jonov will work with each patient to determine the best fat removal method to meet his or her aesthetic and personal goal.
"Male age 62, smart lipo, from back to front including love handles and full abs.This was a great experience, Dr. Jonov does all types of cosmetic surgery, and even on men. I thought I might get some weird looks as being the only male there, but they assured me they do men, and are quite private on disclosure. The people are all great and would recommend them to anyone. I had been trying to get the fat off this area for over 13 years, as I work out 4-5 days a week, and finally just got frustrated, Smart lipo is the way to go, as minimal insicisions, and 1-2 day down time. Make sure you understand lipo does nothing for excess skin, So make sure you discuss your expectations with the Dr. VERY HAPPY, may go get ab definition surgery for the 6 pack look"- R.K. / Google / Apr 15, 2014
"I am 4 days into recovery from my SmartLipo procedure with Dr. Jonov and The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. I have to say, I am AMAZED at the results already. Dr. Jonov and his staff were very thorough in the time they spent with me leading up to the surgery, and post-surgery as well. They answered all my questions, gave me confidence, and guided me through the process with warmth and compassion. I would recommend this practice and procedure to anyone who wants to get a more youthful, toned physique back--when diet and exercise seems to be ineffective. I can't wait to see more results unfold over time. Thank you, Dr. Jonov and The Gallery!"- T.V. / Google / Feb 15, 2014
"Dr.Jonov is amazing. He has very gigh expectations of me which i truly appreciate because intend to fall off the wagon and procrastinate. He truly does care. I had an extendes abdomnioplasty along with smart Lipo in my back and stomach. My incision line is so straight that i dont even mind showing off my scar from hip to hip. I had some fluid retention and he is taking care of it this Monday to ensure that i get the exact results I want."- K.D. / Yelp / Dec 16, 2015
How SmartLipo is Performed@headingTag>
During this procedure, a tiny incision is made into the skin so that a cannula with an attached laser can be inserted under the surface. The surgeon will move this device back and forth under the skin using a red laser light for guidance. The fat cells hit with the laser will swell, pop and liquefy, then will be removed. For smaller areas, the body will naturally absorb the liquid. During this procedure, the laser also triggers collagen production, which helps to tighten and tone the skin.
During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
All Smartlipo procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility. The type of anesthesia used will depend on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas such as the hips may be done using a local anesthesia, which will isolate the body part. General anesthesia may be used if multiple areas are being treated (depending on patient size). In terms of recovery, there is less bleeding and bruising compared to traditional liposuction. Most individuals will begin seeing results within the same week. However, it can take up to 6 full weeks for the optimal results to become visible.
The cost for Smartlipo will vary depending on the size of the patient and the areas being treated. In general, Smartlipo can cost anywhere from $2,000-$7,000.

Best Areas to Treat?@headingTag>
Smartlipo is ideal for the arms, neck, hips, love handles (flanks) and other areas where skin laxity has decreased slightly and fat has accumulated. Some areas of the body may have better results with traditional liposuction. The areas to be treated will be assessed during the initial consultation so the appropriate technique can be used and optimal results can be attained.
Will There be a scar?@headingTag>
There is minimal (if any) scarring with Smartlipo. This is because the procedure does not require any stitches. The incisions used for the laser are very tiny and typically heal without any scarring.
Will the Fat Come Back?@headingTag>
With Smartlipo, fat cells will be permanently destroyed. However, just like with any weight loss, new fat cells can develop if you do not adhere to a consistent diet and exercise regime. This is recommended so the results can be long-lasting.
Will I Lose Weight?@headingTag>
Once all of the targeted fat has been dissolved and removed, then yes – you will lose weight. However, Smartlipo, or any other liposuction technique, is not a treatment for being overweight. Patients should be as close to their goal weight as possible before considering any liposuction procedure.
