Lipo is a time-tested procedure that decreases undesired and unappealing fat from your problem areas. It provides swift results for men and women who want a more toned silhouette but are not getting a response with exercise and diet alone. Smartlipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure that typically yields exciting results for those who wish to rid fat cells from their body and promote skin tightening. If all of this sounds promising to you, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is pleased to perform Smartlipo, a groundbreaking technique for liposuction and skin tightening at Walters Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA.
"Dr. Walters Is The Creme De La Creme - I had a Mommy Makeover (extended tummy tuck and breast lift w/ fat transfer) with Dr. Jules Walters on October 24, 2018.

"I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Walters in September and had an amazing experience! I went to a few consultations before choosing him as my plastic surgeon and he was by far the most thorough, easy to talk to, and overall I just felt very comfortable with him. I went in with an idea of what I wanted but I took his advice on what he thought was best for me (he is a true perfectionist). My results are amazing and I am completely satisfied. I had my procedure on a Friday morning and went back to work the following Monday with very minimal pain and absolutely no bruising (and I bruise quite easily). He truly has gifted hands and he is so nice! I will be coming back to him for all my plastic surgery needs!"- L.R. / Google / Mar 13, 2020

"BBL & lipo: Dr Walters was very kind af professional - Ever since I was a teenager I could never properly pants, my upper body Is like a medium lower body more an xl. I used to cry in front of my closet feeling fat and upset. So now at the age 28 after so many years of not feeling comfy in shorts dresses and skirts, I've finally made the decision to pursue lipo and while at it transfer some fat to my upper buttocks. My surgery happened 2 days ago and it's honestly a tough recovery so far. I did my surgery in New Orleans which is where I live. I realized going abroad and thinking I'd save money wasn't true. I got to go home the same day in my comfortable space with the people I love taking care of me. So far I'm pretty swollen so I know it will take a while before seeing permanent results. Dr Walters was very kind af professional, very quick in response over text for the few additional questions I had. The nurses were sweet, on the way home, we got hit by a car, thank god my husband and I are both safe. But it was traumatizing having to deal with that while still being gone on anesthesia. The first night I woke up to pee like 5 times and I could make it to the bathroom alone. I had to vomit each time I would move around even with the nausea pills and the patch behind my ear. But today I got to shower and take off my pads. I slept a lot and tried to eat a bit more. Hopefully each day will be a bit better! The pictures in red outfit are my before pictures."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 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.
