Minimal Invasiveness

When you plan to obtain SmartLipo in Chicago, the technique involves a minimally invasive procedure that requires small incisions, resulting in minimal scarring and a shorter recovery time when compared to traditional liposuction methods. A key aspect contributing to the minimal invasiveness of SmartLipo involves selective fat targeting. The laser energy specifically targets fat cells while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues, such as blood vessels and nerves. The use of selective targeting helps reduce trauma to the treatment area.

Laser-Assisted Fat Removal

The laser energy used in SmartLipo helps to break down and liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove or be naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. Dr. Casas uses laser fat removal in Chicago to treat various areas of a patient’s body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, neck, and chin. It is important to note the specific details and techniques used may vary depending on the surgeon, the device being used, and individual patient factors.

Skin Tightening

In addition to fat removal, Dr. Casas can incorporate SmartLipo to stimulate collagen production in the treated area, leading to improved skin tightening and contouring. This technique can also result in a smoother and more toned appearance.

Local Anesthesia

As you are prepped for the SmartLipo procedure, the area is always prepared with local anesthesia. Local anesthesia offers several advantages over general anesthesia, including:
  • Reduced Risks: Local anesthesia carries fewer risks and potential complications compared to general anesthesia, as it does not affect your overall consciousness or breathing.
  • Quicker Recovery: Since you are not fully sedated, the recovery time from local anesthesia is typically shorter compared to procedures performed under general anesthesia.
  • Minimized Downtime: Local anesthesia allows for a quicker return to normal activities, as the effects wear off considerably faster than general anesthesia.

My “turkey neck” is gone!

Dr. Casas offered and explained non-surgical options to eliminate my saggy neck. My choice was to have Smart Lipo. The procedure was innovative, as it was done in the office under local anesthesia…no general anesthesia! Explanation of the procedure, pre-op and post op care was explained in great detail. Following the procedure, Dr. Casas monitored my progress with great care and attention to every detail to achieve excellent results. I am extremely satisfied with my results!


Awesome results and experience, highly recommend!

I found Dr Casas on Real Self and I had an amazing experience and result so I wanted to share that. I have actually referred a few people here already. I had previous lipo (somewhere else that I won’t name) that left liposuction trauma (cannulation grooves) all over my outer thighs and an irregular patch of fat on my abdomen. So we did smart lipo to the abdomen, Cellulaze to the back of the thighs, and cellfina for the cellulite. I am 4 months out and extremely satisfied with the improvements I am seeing. I also thought the whole experience was top notch. Dr. Casas did an extremely comprehensive consult and pointed out things I had never noticed so I was very impressed with her vision. she also has a great staff, thanks for all your help guys! Dr Casas did some Sculpta to fill in some volume loss I had in my posterior legs from the surgery I had elsewhere. I have also done kybella to the banana roll under the butt. Perfect butt here I come!! Thanks Dr.Casas!!


Smart Lipo Results Look Great! – Glenview, IL

I was confident going into this as I had been well prepared by Dr. Casas. She and her staff were wonderful. The procedure was painless. The necessary bandages were awkward but not problematic. There are no visible scars. Friends have asked if I have lost weight. No, I just have a smoother, younger neck.
