"Dr. Walter's is an incredible surgeon. He is a very meticulous surgeon who shows great care for the little details. Every nurse at Oschner Baptist who cared for me commented on what an amazing job he had done. He is very caring and always checking on his patients. He even gave me his cell phone number in case I needed anything. He treated me with the utmost respect and has given me a piece of my life back after cancer. I could not have asked for a better surgeon."- T.F. / Google / Aug 09, 2019

He is highly skilled, very kind, and he responded to me immediately with any post-procedure questions/concerns I had. I am so glad that I chose him to do my procedure! There are other plastic surgeons closer to me, but after doing my research, I chose to drive the hour and a half from Mississippi to Dr. Walters, and I am so glad I did. He is hands-down the absolute best at what he does."- K.V. / Google / Jul 03, 2019
Liposuction isn't a weight loss solution. You will see a remarkable decrease in your problem areas that typically don't respond well to exercise and diet changes, but it is important that you don't rely completely on the surgical procedure for weight loss or management. If you are healthy enough for traditional liposuction, you are probably a great candidate for Smartlipo as well. Those most likely to benefit from Smartlipo fit the following criteria:
- Are in good overall health
- Remain within 25 pounds of their goal weight
- Have realistic ideas about the outcome of the surgery
- Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine
Much like traditional liposuction, Smartlipo requires the use of incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. At the time of the surgical procedure, Dr. Walters will push the laser handpiece around the treatment area beneath the skin. As the fat cells come into contact with the beams of the laser, they will swell and liquefy. At this time, Dr. Walters will extract the liquefied fat with the cannula. The laser Smartlipo also encourages the production of collagen, which tones and tightens the skin during recovery.
What to Expect
Even though the Smartlipo surgery is minimally invasive, it should still be completed in a fully accredited surgery center. The anesthesia used for your Smartlipo procedure will depend upon the areas to be treated. The procedure will last about an hour per area. Upon the completion of the surgery, you should prepare for a bit of swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects are standard and will most likely fade in the coming weeks. Full results will be obvious within about six weeks following surgery.
