SmartLipo TriPlex™ in Reading
Minimally Invasive Fat Removal and Skin Tightening
Everyone knows that no matter how much you diet and exercise, there are always stubborn, localized pockets of fat that just won’t go away. While liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can help reduce persistent fat deposits, making you look and feel great.
We’re taking traditional liposuction to the next level with Smartlipo TriPlex, a laser-assisted technique that provides maximized results for both fat removal and skin tightening.
“I feel better about my body and have more confidence in myself. The staff is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable…I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my procedure.”*
What is Smartlipo TriPlex?
Smartlipo TriPlex is an FDA-approved, revolutionary procedure that is minimally invasive and has a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction, resulting in less bleeding, swelling, and bruising.
Using local anesthesia, the procedure is performed with a small, one-millimeter cannula that contains a laser fiber. The laser fiber delivers energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. This makes the fat easier to remove, which in turn causes less trauma to the body.
So far, our patients have been thrilled with their results. Many say their recovery was even easier than they expected and that they are glad they made the drive over to Berks to have the procedure done.
How does Smartlipo TriPlex differ from liposuction?
While both treatments effectively remove fat, Smartlipo TriPlex adds a skin tightening element to the liposuction procedure—making it a great option for those with areas of lax skin. The energy targeted to the fat cells also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area, which causes the skin to gradually retract and tighten, resulting in the reduction of cellulite and surface irregularities. Treatment also helps improve the overall quality and appearance of your skin.
Smartlipo TriPlex is often combined with traditional liposuction to provide maximum results. In most instances, this is a two-step procedure that only requires local anesthesia. Smartlipo TriPlex is a more efficient method of removing fat from small areas of the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. Although there is reduced bruising and swelling with SmartLipo TriPlex, swelling can persist after the procedure and may require an elastic garment to be worn.

Before & After GalleryModel
How many Smartlipo TriPlex treatments are required?
Smartlipo TriPlex™ can take 30 to 60 minutes on the neck and several hours on larger areas. Most patients are happy with their results after just one treatment, however, a touch up treatment may be required in some patients.
Where areas can be treated using Smartlipo TriPlex?
Smartlipo TriPlex™ can be used to safely treat many areas on the body including the abdomen, back, flanks, muffin top, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, and neck.
How will I look after surgery?
Shortly after the procedure, the treated area will appear more compact and smaller. Skin tightening is a gradual process and will continue over the course of a few months. Best results are seen after several months.
What will my recovery be like with Smartlipo TriPlex?
After your Smartlipo TriPlex treatment, you can typically expect to return to work within just a few days. You will go home after the procedure and rest for a few hours, after which you may gradually increase your activity as tolerated. A pressure garment may be placed over the procedure area for several days to several weeks depending on the body area treated. You should refrain from strenuous exercise for several weeks.
How are the benefits of Smartlipo TriPlex measured?
Cosmetically speaking, successful treatment is measured in inches rather than pounds. The weight removed is not as important as the improvement to your body’s contour. Even more important is your improved self-image and self-acceptance.
” The staff at Berks are some of the most professional practitioners I have ever interacted with, and I work in healthcare. Every question I had was clearly answered in great detail. I never felt nervous! I have already started looking into additional surgeries based on my results and experience.”*
