Laser Liposuction for Dover, New Philadelphia, Canton, & Akron, OH, Patients
Of the sculpting treatments available in the cosmetic world, many experts believe Smartlipo® Triplex® laser liposuction is the best. To better serve our patients in Ohio, including Dover, Canton, New Philadelphia, and Akron, we offer Smartlipo® Triplex® at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Facial Plastic Surgery for effective, long-term fat reduction and overlying skin tightening.
For patients who desire a completely non-surgical method to treat stubborn fat, we also offer SculpSure®, EndyMed™, and TriPollar.
Smartlipo® vs. Non-Surgical Fat Treatments
Another of the great advantages of Smartlipo® is that it is a “one-time” treatment. This makes the cost lower than other fat-sculpting treatments such as fat-melting injectables, which require repeat treatment sessions, are not as precise, and do not yield the same beautiful, predictable, natural-looking results.
The tiny, 4 mm incisions are hidden discreetly in skin folds to heal inconspicuously. The procedure can easily be combined with CO2 laser resurfacing and/or radiofrequency microneedling to further maximize skin rejuvenation results. Combining multiple treatments can drop the price of every single procedure by as much as half.
What is Smartlipo® Triplex®?
Smartlipo® Triplex® – or simply Smartlipo® – is an FDA-cleared device used by aesthetic surgeons to facilitate laser-based liposuction (also known as laser-assisted lipolysis), a minimally invasive procedure. Using a straight-directed laser beam to melt stubborn fat and an upward laser beam to simultaneously tighten the overlying skin, the procedure yields results that look youthfully athletic and natural.
Although laser liposuction takes longer to perform and has a somewhat higher expense, the results are superior to traditional or non-laser-based liposuction, because of its fat-melting and enhanced skin tightening benefits. Recovery is shorter, with less bruising, less swelling, and reduced downtime.
Smartlipo® Triplex® Reviews
"In this day and age, finding a physician like Dr. Hartman seems near impossible. But then you meet him and the impossible turns possible. Dr. Hartman far exceeded my expectations for how I hoped to look after surgery and fat transfer. He is intelligent, unbelievably talented, caring, gentle, and single-handedly made me look 20 years younger without making me look the slightest bit fake. I am still agog. It just did not seem possible until I found Dr. Hartman."- J.M. / Healthgrades / Jun 01, 2018
"Made my deep-as-trenches marionette lines disappear - All my swelling is gone and now I am sure. Two weeks ago, Dr. Hartman transferred my belly fat to my Marionette lines; folds and wrinkles as deep as trenches. Now, voila’, my chin trenches are gone. The “other” place I used to go – twice they filled my Marionette lines with filler, twice they charged me a fortune, and twice they swore it would work. Ha! They didn’t make a dent in my trenches. A complete waste of money! Over and over I’ve experienced the magic Dr. H. does for old ladies like me. Which was why I was hopeful Dr. H. could transform my granny chin. On post-op day 14, I knew what I was seeing was not residual swelling but rather yet another of Dr. H.’s successful “fine arts” to my face. His fat transfer took a decade off my appearance. Until I went to Fine Arts, I was throwing good money after bad. With Dr. Hartman, the money I spend is worth every penny because I continue to look younger and younger, in some ways better than I did 15 years ago.Updated on 7 Jan 2019:Here is before and after. A Fountain-of-Youth miracle done by Dr. Hartman. And during the procedure, to ensure the patient stays warm, Dr. Hartman donned my head with a Russian ear-flap hat. This hat ended up being a great souvenir that my husband wears all the time."- S. / RealSelf / Sep 25, 2019

"Dr. Hartman and his team are top notch, seriously the best around. Not only do they make the experience all about you, they are attentive, kind and knowledgeable. I recently got lipo and a fat transfer. From the consultation to the after care, they go above and beyond. 10/10. Would highly recommend!"- E.T. / Facebook / Jul 29, 2021
"After a lifetime of dieting and working out, I was a 51 year old man still struggling with my midsection and stubborn belly fat. My girlfriend was a repeat client at the clinic and convinced me to meet with Dr. Hartman and his staff. Reluctantly, I agreed to having a lipo procedure with fat transfer to my buttocks as well. If I had ever wondered what it felt like to be a Rockstar, I now know exactly how that feels. From the moment we arrived that morning, the doctor and his amazing staff made sure I was comfortable and informed of everything that was going on. They immediately made me feel like a friend or family as I was prepped and throughout the day. I was awake and alert, visiting with the doctor and staff the whole time. It has been a couple of months and the healing process was light and relatively easy. I'm beyond pleased on a daily basis with the incredible results. One day, at the pool on vacation, a lady thought she had met me the year before. She kept staring and finally asked if I was possibly the same guy she remembered but must have lost a lot of weight? I confirmed that it was me, and couldn't have felt much better about making the decision to go with Dr. Hartman in that moment. If you are considering any procedure, look no further. This is the place where you get the Rockstar treatment with results like the celebrities! HUGE THANKS and BIG HUGS to everyone at the clinic who took such wonderful care of us."- L.H. / Google / Aug 03, 2022
Is It Painful?
Smartlipo® is done in our procedure room very comfortably using tumescent local anesthesia only. This state-of-the-art device uses very small-diameter, extremely precise laser cannulas. The lasers pre-melt the targeted fat so that it is removed more evenly and smoothly. Smartlipo® yields outstanding, natural-looking contours with very little downtime – generally only a day or two until return to work/routines. Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, this popular single-session treatment takes between two and four hours.
Where is Smartlipo® Used?
For women and men, Dr. Hartman can melt stubborn fat and tighten overlying skin on multiple areas of the body, including the:
Neck (double chin) treatment, which is performed with the Precision TX® handpiece of the Smartlipo® device
Jawline and jowls
Abdomen (muffin top)
Inner and outer thighs
Precision Smartlipo® is an excellent treatment if there is extra fullness under the chin but not a lot of skin looseness. If, however, the neck and lower face have more significant looseness, then a facelift and/or neck lift are better treatment options.
Recovering from Smartlipo®
When we perform Precision Smartlipo® (i.e. for a smaller area such as a double chin) on a Friday or Saturday, for instance, our patients generally return to work and other routines by Monday. In many cases, some bruising is evident for up to a week or more, and a high-collar shirt or a scarf may be used to help cover any bruising that may occur. Some discomfort at the treatment site may be present for several weeks or more after the procedure. Much of the results are evident immediately with further improvements steadily continuing for 90 days.
Double chin treatments start at about $3,500. Combined body treatments for the tummy fat, love handles, inner and outer thighs generally begin at $5,000, and can readily be combined with a tummy tuck if needed at package pricing. The total cost of treatment will vary depending on the number and size of areas, and the extent of fat reduction required.
For facial rejuvenation, Precision Smartlipo® can easily be combined with other procedures such as eyelid rejuvenation, CO2 laser skin resurfacing, or a forehead/brow lift. Combining multiple treatments will drop the individual treatment prices by as much as half.
