Body Contouring


Great Curves Without Surgery

Body contouring is fast becoming one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. At For Women By Women, we offer body contouring with the SmartLipo™ system.

Better Results, Less Healing

SmartLipo™ is a laser-assisted liposuction system that uses laser energy to dissolve and eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The most common treatment areas are the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, hips, back, and arms. Laser energy results in less trauma than traditional liposuction, and Dr. Mayhew can precisely target fat to bring out your natural curves. Another benefit is mild skin tightening. 

SmartLipo™ Procedure

SmartLipo™ requires the use of local anesthesia – general anesthesia is not required. Small incisions are made in the treatment area, and a special device is inserted through the incision. Laser energy is applied to the fat cells which cause them to dissolve. A special suction device removes the melted fat.

Why Should I Choose Dr. Mayhew and For Women By Women for SmartLipo™?

Dr. Mayhew understands the aging process of the body and skin, and listens to each patient's unique goals for total body health and confidence. Most women have trouble areas that need laser assitance to dissolve stubborn fat, outside of regular diet and exercise modifications. Dr. Mayhew specializes in this laser procedure and works with each patient to ensure body contouring is achieved to meet their goals, and that recovery is quick and easy. 

What Are the Benefits of SmartLipo™ at For Women By Women?

Patients who undergo liposuction with the SmartLipo™ system get the same, if not better results than they would with traditional liposuction. Additionally, patient discomfort is significantly lower with SmartLipo™. The laser energy of the SmartLipo™ system also generates heat in the skin, which stimulates collagen production. As a result, your skin looks and feels tighter.

Am I a Candidate for SmartLipo™?

SmartLipo™ and liposuction in general are not intended as weight loss solutions or alternatives to proper diet and exercise. While the treatments do eliminate the fat that you have now, you can re-develop new fat in the same areas. To learn how SmartLipo™ can help you have a tight and toned body, call our office to schedule a consultation appointment.
