The best results with laser lipo, whether it is Smart Lipo, Cool Lipo, or any other laser lipo technology, are achieved by combining it with tumescent lipo in the deeper fat layers. This unique fusion of techniques and technologies offers not only better cosmetic results, but faster healing, less bruising, less discomfort and a far wider range of applications than laser lipo alone.

Frequently Asked Questions
- SmartLipo Laser. Laserlipolysis (pulsed, Nd YAG laser): This laser has recently received FDA approval. A small cannula containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin, the cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis resulting in collagen shrinkage responsible for a good contraction of the skin. SmartLipo is minimally invasive procedure that can be done easily with local tumescent anesthesia. The SmartLipo is a great adjunct to standard liposuction (suction-assisted, power-assisted, laser-assisted liposuction), though it can not replace conventional liposuction. They have found the SmartLipo ideal for treating small areas of the face, neck, arms, breasts, high definition liposculpturing such as abdominal etching ("6-pack etching"), and areas of loose and flabby skin (floppy skin).
Q. What type of liposuction is the best?
A. All the liposuction techniques offer advantages and disadvantage; therefore, the use of specific liposuction equipment used alone or in combination with other liposuction devices, must be individualized based upon the patient needs, desires, technical feasibility and realistic expectations. At the Pelosi Medical Center all of the liposuction techniques are available. Drs. Pelosi use all the techniques of liposuction, tailoring them to the particular part of the body or patient. Be aware that many claims made by manufactures or physicians using a specific liposuction equipment system have been never been confirmed by rigorous clinical studies. They are only marketing strategies to lure potential customers. They use statements such as…”If your doctor doesn’t use our type of liposuction, you should look for a physician that uses it, because out system of liposuction is not really liposuction but something better.”
Q. What is high definition liposuction (6-pack etching)?
A. High definition liposuction is the three dimensional sculpting of the abdominal muscles, the chest muscles, the lower back and gluteus to enhance their appearance. The procedure is designed as an advanced scultping technique rather than standard liposuction and requires an experienced surgeon.
The procedure is indicated for males and females who have good muscle tone, exercise regularly, have good quality skin, and have been unable to achieve their desired muscle definition.
The procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia; the high definition liposuction goal is to remove the superficial and deep fat that covers the target muscles. Drs. Pelosi perform high definition liposuction using SmartLipo Laserlipolysis and Vaser Liposelection systems for the initial liquefaction of the fat around the muscles to be enhanced. The sculpturing is completed using fine cannulas specially designed by Drs. Pelosi for high definition sculpturing.
Out of Town Patients
Many lipo surgery patients at LVR-NJ travel considerable distances for our expertise in this procedure. We facilitate this process by providing the option of same-day consultation/same-day surgery. This is arranged in advance and by request at the time that you contact our office. Pre-operative bloodwork testing will need to be performed in advance through a local physician or lab near your home. Drs. Pelosi will review your situation to determine if this is an appropriate option. If you fly, or if your drive home is more than 2 hours, we recommend that you stay in the area overnight after your surgery so that Drs. Pelosi can evaluate you for proper healing on the day after surgery; afterwards, you may travel home. In certain situations, we can provide you with an overnight stay the night before your surgery if you are arriving late in the day. Click here for general travel info.
