Enhance Your Figure with Liposuction

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ken Smart offers traditional, ultrasonic, and laser liposuction for his patients undergoing body contouring with liposuction. He is one of the first Dallas-area plastic surgeons to offer Smartlipo Triplex™, a cutting-edge and even less invasive procedure that zaps fat using a laser, and for certain candidates can be performed in a single appointment with virtually no downtime. Dr. Smart also underwent a year of specialized training to master the art of ultrasonic liposuction by VASER® Lipo.

Tone Your Figure

Using advanced liposuction techniques, Dr. Smart can target areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise.

Types of Liposuction

Traditional Liposuction

Standard suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) utilizes a cannula attached to a vacuum to remove fat from the body. It solely relies on the movement of the surgeon passing the cannula through the fat cells with the help of power-assisted vibration of the cannula to remove the fat. 

Smartlipo Triplex™

Smartlipo Triplex™ is the newest, most advanced form of liposuction used in plastic surgery today. As the least invasive form of liposuction, patients can be in and out in a single procedure, and even return to work the next day with minimal swelling, bleeding, and bruising.

Dr. Smart is dedicated to listening to you to learn your goals and the expectations of your surgery. 

Using a tiny one-millimeter cannula, much smaller than the one used in standard liposuction procedures, a laser fiber is inserted beneath the skin and swept through the area containing fat cells. When the laser energy is applied to the cells, the cells burst, and the resulting fat is passed out of the body or suctioned out. The laser also tightens the skin by inducing collagen production to coagulate tissue.


VASER® Lipo, which is a form of ultrasonic liposuction, is the most technologically advanced ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL) used in plastic surgery today. It utilizes sound waves that are emitted through a very small probe to melt the fat cells before they are suctioned out.

The sound waves are selective to the fat cells and do not damage the very important connective tissue which leads to better skin tightening as compared to standard liposuction. Because it is a gentler procedure, blood vessels and nerves are also not damaged. This leads to less bruising, pain, and recovery period after ultrasonic liposuction by VASER® Lipo.

Refine Your Appearance

Before: liposuction from back
After: liposuction from back
Liposuction can eliminate rolls from your sides and back. 

Is Liposuction Right for You?

Candidates for liposuction are those who are in good general health, have reasonable and attainable expectations, are reasonably close to their normal weight and have generally good skin elasticity. Candidates for Smartlipo Triplex™ are those who have more localized areas of fat and are also close to their normal, ideal weight. Liposuction is not intended to be a form of weight loss.

Commonly Treated Areas

Most areas of the body can be treated with liposuction, including the:

  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Outer thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees

Areas that were seldom treated before with standard liposuction are now commonly treated with VASER® Lipo and Smartlipo Triplex™ because of its gentle nature. These areas include the neck, arms, calves, and ankles. 

Target Problem Areas

Before liposuction
After liposuction
Liposuction is a reliable tool for carefully slimming down targeted areas of the abdomen and thighs.

Your Initial Consultation

Dr. Smart is dedicated to listening to you to learn your goals and the expectations of your surgery. After doing this, performing an examination, and determining if you are a suitable candidate, he will develop a customized plan to help you achieve your goals. During your cosmetic consultation, we may also discuss additional treatment options for you, such as an abdominoplasty or body lift procedures.

Advanced Incision Techniques

Incisions are placed in inconspicuous areas such as natural skin creases and areas that are normally covered by clothes, when possible. However, some incisions must be placed in visible places. These are usually very small and heal very well with very minimal scarring.

Dedicated to Your Comfort

Most liposuction procedures are performed under general anesthesia. At the discretion of Dr. Smart, some cases can be performed under IV sedation. Anesthesia is administered by board-certified anesthesiologists. Most cases are performed as an outpatient in the fully accredited ambulatory surgery center located conveniently in Dr. Smart's professional building. 

Slim Your Abdomen

Before liposuction: from side
After liposuction: from side
While a more conservative option than a tummy tuck, liposuction can noticeably slim down your silhouette. 

Recovering from Treatment

Following surgery, you will wear a compression garment that will aid healing. In most instances, you can shower the next day. You will wear your garment continuously for one week and then intermittently thereafter for a total of six weeks.  Most people return to work in three to five days, depending on the extent of the surgery and the amount of fat removed.

Liposuction is the optimal way to remove excess fat cells from your abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, waist, buttocks, and chest.

Dr. Smart will see you five to seven days after your liposuction and then at three and six weeks after surgery. He then will see you at three, six, and nine months post-surgery. Most patients are back to full activity between four and six weeks after liposuction.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

After your consultation and physical examination, Dr. Smart's patient coordinator will present your personalized quote to you. Your quote includes the surgeon's fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee, and the facility fee for your surgery.

Eliminate Excess Fat

Liposuction is the optimal way to remove excess fat cells from your abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, waist, buttocks, and chest. Using either the most advanced form of ultrasonic liposuction, VASER® Lipo, SmartLipo®, or traditional liposuction, Dr. Ken Smart serves Plano and Frisco-area patients with the smooth, contoured appearance they desire. Contact our cosmetic surgeon today to schedule a cosmetic consultation today.
