Smart Lipo is a laser used prior to the actual suctioning of fat, promoted as aiding in 'melting' fat and providing some skin contracture. Air Sculpt is a proprietary device, not available elsewhere, and is used exclusively by one corporate liposuction clinic. It is a power assisted liposuction device and does not use laser energy. Most important in choosing who to go to is the physician, not the device. Your result will be determined primarily by the skill of the physician, not which technology is used.

They are many kind of liposuction machines that use for melting fat cell with less trauma of surrounding tissue. For example 1. VASER® is precise ultrasound-assisted technology combining mechanical and acoustic fragmentation/emulsification of fat, designed to optimize procedure speed and efficiency while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissue. 2. The BodyTite RFAL is a radio frequency assisted liposuction method with simultaneous skin tightening. BodyTite is a revolutionary body contouring method, where fat is dissolved and skin is tigtened all at the same time, without causing any damages to neighboring tissues/nerves. In our hospital combination VASER+BODYTITE for create the best results of fast for melting fat area and skin tightening effects.
