Benefits of choosing SmartLipo® and/or VaserLipo®
What is the process for SmartLipo® and VaserLipo®?
Step One: Schedule a FREE Consultation.
Blue patient advocates discuss your goals, concerns, and desired results. At BLUE Med Center, we believe in total transparency during your consultation and will always discuss realistic outcomes and expectations in detail. You will never be rushed or pressured during your consultation. Thanks to the addition of Vaser® technology at BLUE several years ago, we deliver better results for our patients without added cost.
Step Two: Complete required documentation, medical history, and receive prescriptions.
Step Three: Pre-op appointment, review and finalize details.
Step Four: Day of Procedure
Dr. James will draw on your body to identify the areas to be treated. You will have a visual indication of the areas where removal of fat will be focused versus areas for sculpting or contouring. This procedure does not require general anesthesia. You will be kept very comfortable during your procedure. Watch one of our many satisfied clients from check-in to completion in the video below:
Step Five: Post-op
You can expect to have some bruising or swelling, but because we perform SmartLipo®, you can expect to return to your normal activities as soon as you feel comfortable. If larger areas or multiple areas were treated with liposuction, you may need a longer time to recover.
What is Vaser®?
Vaser® utilizes acoustic steaming giving you smoother contours with less pain and recover time. Although many practices only utilize SmartLipo® (laser liposuction), Blue combins SmartLipo® with Vaser® to allow even more fat to be removed than with SmartLipo® alone.
Vaser® utilizes a medicated solutions and ultrasound to break up fat making it easier to extract with a gentle suction process. Surrounding tissue is left intact, which is especially beneficial for those patients who have had previous liposuction procedures or other procedures that might have created scar tissue.
Vaser® technology took liposuction to the next level by maximizing patient results, improving shape and contour and in many cases making it less noticeable that you had a liposuction procedure.
What if I’m Already in Excellent Shape but Want Added Definition to Show Off My Hard Work?
Vaser® technology renders high-definition body sculpting work and where it really shines. In the video below Dr. James discuss the technique.
How much does SmartLipo® and/or Vaser® assisted liposuction and body sculpting cost?
SmartLipo starts as low as $4,900*. Total cost for your procedure depends on the number of areas treated and partially depends on your total BMI. At BLUE, there are never any hidden fees! CareCredit Financing is available.
*Excludes high-definition body sculpting.

SmartLipo® vs Traditional Lipo
During traditional liposuction, fat is removed from the body by aggressively scraping the cells from the skin with large cannulas (surgical instruments.) Due to the painful nature of this procedure, patients are fully sedated with general anesthesia and the recovery time is much longer. This aggressive scraping technique often leads to uneven healing of the skin, and some patients even experience lumpiness and bulging.
Unlike Traditional Lipo, SmartLipo® is a laser-assisted lipo-suction that involves heating and melting of the fat, prior to removal. This technique allows for easier removal of the fat cells with smaller cannulas and is less aggressive on the body. The procedure is done under local anesthesia- patients are awake and able to communicate and walk out immediately thereafter. The laser stimulates collagen production; once fully healed, the treated areas are much smoother and tighter.
