Why Choose Smart Lipo (Smartlipo™)?
Smartlipo™ (referred to as Smart Lipo, Laser Liposuction, and Smart Liposuction) utilizes the latest laser technology to transform fat into liquid which is then removed from the body via liposuction through tiny incisions.
Unlike traditional Chicago liposuction, which removes globules of live fat cells using suction, the Smartlipo™ laser disrupts the fat cells and liquifies the fat prior to removal which allows for a less traumatic and more uniform removal of the fat with smaller cannulas. An additional benefit of the laser is that it coagulates the tissue for less bleeding and heats the underlying skin which results in skin-tightening or a "shrink wrap" effect. The laser element also helps to ensure more precision during the procedure and finely target the problem area.
Research for yourself and find out why, in the right hands, Smartlipo™ has one of the highest satisfaction ratings of any procedure on patient review websites such as, RealSelf.com. Dr. Truong is a board-certified surgeon who is thoroughly trained and experienced in the Smartlipo™ procedure.

What is Smartlipo by Cynosure?
Smartlipo is designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly referred to as laser liposuction. A very thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a tiny incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fat for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue coagulates through the laser energy that is delivered, contributing to an overall smoother shape.
How do I know if laser lipolysis is right for me?
The best candidates for laser lipolysis are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits, such as “love handles,” flabby upper arms, excess neck or lower facial fat, or fat on the lower torso. A consultation with a Smartlipo physician can provide you with the best information.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Laser lipolysis is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, back, “love handles,” post-pregnancy skin laxity, saddlebags, knees, and enlarged male breasts.
What does the procedure feel like?
Because the area is anesthetized, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel pressure but it is a mild sensation. Following laser lipolysis, you may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated and the recommendation of your physician.
How long does the procedure take?
On average, the procedure will take 1.5–2 hours. This is dependent on the number of areas to be treated and the size of those areas.
Do I have to stay in the hospital?
Laser lipolysis is typically an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
How many treatments are necessary?
For most patients, results are achieved in just one treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3–6 months.
How long do the results last?
Laser lipolysis disrupts fat cells in the treated area. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to enjoy long-lasting results.
Will there be scarring?
The incision site will be very small. With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable. Your physician will evaluate your skin type and provide you with complete information on what to expect in this regard.
What’s the recovery time?
The laser lipolysis procedure is a minimally invasive procedure and usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light bruising can occur, but you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.
How much does laser lipolysis cost?
The cost depends on the size and number of areas to be treated. Financing options are available to meet most any budget. Please sign up for a complimentary consultation with a free quote today!
Smart Lipo or Tummy Tuck?Dr. Anh-Tuan Truong
Are you considering Smart Lipo? Remember Smart Lipo is designed as a fat sculpting procedure and may not be ideal for all patients. If you are wondering if it's right for you, take a minute to answer these three simple questions:
1. Have you had any pregnancies?
2. Have you had significant weight change of 50lbs or more?
3. Do you have loose skin or stretch marks?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be a better candidate for a Tummy Tuck. More info on Tummy Tuck

I'm 29 Years Old, Mother of Three.I knew before I was even 18 I wanted a breast augmentation. Had always had small breasts and held an insecurity about them. After having two children they became even more "deflated". As much as I wanted a breast augmentation, I was terrified of the procedure. I have severe anxiety and panic attacks and the thought of being put under Scared me. I spoke with several plastic surgeons in the TampaSunnydayz423
Rewarding Myself for Hard Work
At 26 years old, I had a Breast Augmentation with Mentor Memory Gel Silicone implants. I had 400cc / 425cc, and went from a small A to a small D. The results were amazing, and more than I could have wanted.
At 27, I had Liposuction to my abdomen and thighs. I was obese throughout my teenage years, and after losing almost 100 pounds, I had just a few problem areas that needed help. There was minimal pain and bruising, and I was again amazed at the results.
I consulted Dr. Truong for a Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck procedure after consulting with other physicians in my local area of Sarasota, and not feeling confident with having them perform the surgeries. Dr. Truong was very informative about both procedures, and actually explained that if I was to have a tummy tuck at 26 years old, the results may be destroyed if I were to have children later in life, and I was better off to have liposuction to the area of concern. None of the other physicians I had consulted with had mentioned that, and I was grateful that Dr. Truong was honest about it instead of just taking my money. I couldn't be happier with the results of both surgeries! Dr. Truong was very caring throughout the recovery process, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a cosmetic procedure. He was worth the drive from Sarasota, and I will be returning for any future needs.kziemba83
Breast Lift with Augmentation
My surgery went very smoothly. I had limited pain afterwards. I didn't even have to take any of the pain medication that was prescribed. So far, the incisions are healing nicely. Great experience overall. Everyone at Dr. Truong's office and everyone at the surgical facility has been pleasant to work with.
Doctor Truong is very easy to talk to and deal with. Everyone of his office staff is amazing!blackbw1
23 Years Old, Student
I had small breasts. My motivation for the surgery was solely to attain larger breasts. My recovery has gone smoothly and I'm very pleased with my results. I am two weeks post op and pain free, for the most part. Aside from some nerve pain, I have full range of motion in my arms. My incision scars are very thin and almost invisible!
Dr. Truong was very professional and truly catered to my desires and preferred outcomes for my breast augmentation. His staff is also very friendly and helpful. I've had a wonderful overall experience.CSolimeno
