What Is SmartLipo TriPlex?
SmartLipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure. With the SmartLipo TriPlex laser, Dr. Miller liquefies unwanted fat cells before removing them with a small tube called a cannula. The SmartLipo TriPlex laser utilizes three wavelengths:
- First wavelength: Delivers energy directly into the fat cells, causing them to rupture and become permanently destroyed.
- Second wavelength: Affects blood vessels to ensure less bleeding and bruising than with conventional liposuction.
- Third Wavelength: Heat energy causes the skin to contract and stimulates elastin and collagen production, tightening the skin.
SmartLipo uses the latest advancements in body contouring technology to provide a safer, quicker and cost-effective method of liposuction. During your initial consultation with Dr. Miller, he will discuss your goals and help you determine if SmartLipo treatment is right for you.

Who are the Ideal Candidates for a SmartLipo Procedure?
Ideal candidates for the SmartLipo procedure should be:
- In good general health
- Free of any serious medical conditions
- At or near ideal bodyweight
- Aware of the results they can realistically achieve
It’s important to note that SmartLipo is not a weight loss surgery. It is intended to refine your body contours and remove pockets of fat that do not respond to good diet and exercise practices.
The best way to determine if Smartlipo is right for you is to meet with Dr. Miller in a free initial consultation at our Las Vegas office. During this consultation, Dr. Miller will determine your candidacy for the procedure and explain all of your treatment options. You will work collaboratively with our board-certified plastic surgeon to design a customized treatment plan tailored specifically for you.
How do SmartLipo treatments work?
SmartLipo is a conservative liposuction technique that utilizes laser energy to melt fat cells before they are removed through a small cannula. The surgical process begins with photographs of the treatment area. Pictures are often taken from several angles and, in between, the doctor marks the body to create a surgical guide. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia. Within a few minutes of injections, the area is numb, so there is no discomfort as the doctor inserts the laser probe. The laser-tipped cannula melts fat and immediately extracts it to sculpt a slimmer, curvier shape. The heat from the laser also causes a thermal reaction in the dermis in which collagen fibers tighten, enhancing the smooth texture of the skin. After the procedure, an elastic compression garment is applied to the treatment area.
How long does a SmartLipo treatment session take?
The SmartLipo procedure takes an average of 2 hours. However, it can be much less for very small areas or up to 3 hours for multiple treatment areas. Dr. Miller will discuss your estimated treatment time during your consultation when your care plan is developed.
How many SmartLipo treatment sessions will I need?
SmartLipo is a sophisticated liposuction technique developed to enhance results and minimize downtime. Surgical fat reduction and body contouring is intended as a one-time treatment. Unlike the nonsurgical treatments that have become popular (and take 4 or more sessions and months of waiting), SmartLipo Triplex delivers outstanding results immediately.
How long after a SmartLipo treatment will I see results?
Expect some swelling and mild bruising after your procedure. Post-op swelling can last up to two weeks. However, most patients notice the beautiful results of their procedure within a day or two of their session.
Are SmartLipo procedures painful?
SmartLipo is not painful. Small injections of a local anesthetic are administered before incisions are made. When incisions are created, a tiny cannula is used to infiltrate the treatment area with tumescent fluid. This solution includes local anesthesia as well as chemicals that reduce bleeding. Tumescent fluid works quickly to numb the surgical area before the doctor inserts the SmartLipo fat-melting cannula.
What are the risks of SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a liposuction technique that has been designed for comfort and conservativeness. The use of the laser-assisted device is unlikely to result in complications. In fact, SmartLipo is a minimal-downtime procedure that usually incurs nothing more than minor swelling and bruising that disappears over several days. Because liposuction procedures involve small incisions, there is a minor risk of infection. Meticulous surgical practices and good aftercare promote optimal wound healing.
