The type of laser liposuction that we do here in this office is called SmartLipo or Smart Lipotriplex. SmartLipo is one of the first brand names of laser lipo. The triplex means it's in its third version and there's three different laser wave lengths that this laser has. It's the patient when they've had children, lost some skin elasticity. That's when you really need that extra laser for the skin tightening ability of the laser to help out with that.

That's one of the things we always try to set is expectations.
