Eliminate areas of unwanted fat and tone your entire body with laser-assisted lipolysis.
Our minimally invasive laser technology permanently destroys fat cells as well as tightens skin simultaneously. This revolutionary procedure can be complimented with Low Level Laser Liposuction with fat dissolution and removal for an even more dramatic result.
Ideal regions for treatment include the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, “bra fat,” abdomen, “love handles,” saddle bags,” inner and outer thighs and knees.
The cannula for the 1064nm wavelength was specially designed to reach areas previously untouched by traditional liposuction. The 2mm diameter cannula houses the fiber optic cable transmitting the light energy in a pulsed fashion to coagulate small vessels, melt fat cells, and create new dermal collagen. This “Triple Action” gives the patient added benefits. These include faster healing time, reduced bleeding, less bruising, and measurable skin tightening. A patient in the photo gallery is seen (before and after: case #3784) only one day after undergoing this remarkable transformation. One additional benefit noted in the axillary region is after Smart Lipo Laser treatment of this area a marked reduction in sweating occurs. This effect is due to the laser’s ability to coagulate a majority of the sweat glands in the region. When the Smart Lipo Laser is combined with Erchonia’s Low Level Laser Liposuction device, a wonderful synergy occurs.
The Erchonia’s 4L (Low Level Laser Liposuction) Laser eases extraction of the fat cell contents from the body permanently. This device creates a small pore in the membrane through the modulation of the cell with a 635nm wavelength applied 6″ away from the site. This light energy has no heat, but works well to create a “Fat Milk Shake” in the tissues of the hydrated subcutaneous fat cells. After 12 minutes of laser energy is administered the operative site a visible change occurs in the appearance of the fat as it is aspirated thru the micro cannula. The fat looks creamy and has a foamy consistency. This enables the surgeon to initially debulk the fat in an area with minimal effort while using the smallest suction cannula. Use of a small cannula for fat extraction, creates less bruising, accelerates healing, and allows the surgeon to be very precise.
The procedure is performed on healthy individuals between the ages of 18 to 75, who despite dieting and exercising continue to have areas of stubborn dietary resistant fat. These dietary resistant fat cells are programmed to be an emergency store house of fat for the body. So when we discuss the procedure, we emphasize that we would like the patients to use this procedure as a stepping stone, to become excited about the procedure and use this new shape as a motivation to further reduce one’s size by continuing to diet and exercise. The patient is instructed that one can lose weight after the procedure and still look great. For optimal results we encourage patients to get into the best shape possible prior to the outpatient procedure. In the consultation photos of before and after results are shown and discussed. A wide variety of patient types are available for viewing. Also during the consultation, a complete history and physical exam is performed. The risks and complications are reviewed and patients are asked to stop any meds for two weeks that would interfere with their ability to clot (Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, NSAIDS, Glucosamine, Green Tea, Garlic, Gingko, Grape Seed Extract, St. John’s Wart, Statins…to name a few). The procedure is performed in my JACHO approved office operating room under a conscious sedation anesthetic. The local anesthetic added to the patient’s fat cells helps numb the tissues, ease extraction of the fat, and also reduces bleeding. After the procedure is completed the patient is placed in a snug garment and is placed in recovery room for monitoring until ready to go home. The average weight loss from this procedure is 6 to 8 pounds, measured at the 8 week post op visit. On average most patients lose 2 dress sizes, and notice a tremendous “Shrink Wrap” effect around the abdomen and flank area. Call for your consultation today 251-344-0044.

Motherhood and Childbearing
This housewife and mother of 3 children had, over the years, acquired a somewhat flabby stomach and lost the natural contours of the hip, thighs and buttocks area she once had.
Frustrated, she, like many other adults and mothers, tried many of the popular weight reduction and body slimming techniques we hear so much about on television and in magazines.
She hired a personal trainer, attended Weight Watchers, and even underwent numerous endermology treatments for reduction of the stubborn fatty deposits located in her “problem areas”. The result however was poor.
When the patient presented in our office, Dr. Lyons described a variety of technologies and procedures that could be applied to acquire nearly any cosmetic result she desired…. without additional waiting and dieting.
The Smart Lipo Laser Body Sculpting, through the use of a hybrid laser technology developed by Cynosure, was the patient’s choice for treatment.
The toning, tightening and slimming she wanted was achieved quickly with the best that minimally invasive cosmetic surgery can provide.
The Cynosure technology delivers a laser lipolysis treatment that literally melts away fat in trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs, arms and neck. The results typically last longer than dieting or exercise and since the treatment is minimally invasive, can often be completed in one treatment.

Dr. Lyons’ use of the Cynosure technology assures our patients an additional choice for less invasive lipo procedures than conventional liposuction methods for fat reduction and body toning.
As the industry’s only laser lipolysis system designed to destroy fat cells and coagulate tissue for tighter skin, Smartlipo is ideal for treating localized fat deposits on the face and body.
In addition, Smartlipo can easily treat challenging areas—such as regions of high vascularity and flaccidity.
