Have you tried diet and exercise without success? At Aesthetic & Vein Center MD, Dr. Normand Miller offers the latest advances in Laser Body Sculpting technology. In fact, Dr. Miller is the first surgeon in New Hampshire to offer Smartlipo® Laser Body Sculpting, which reduces fat in trouble spots such as your abdomen, thighs, bra roll, waist, love handles, arms, and neck.
The Smartlipo® laser-assisted lipolysis system is a highly efficacious solution for breaking down fat cells. Because Smartlipo® is a minimally invasive treatment, it has become the preferred method around the country for melting fat as the results last longer than dieting or exercise.* Since the treatment is minimally invasive, you’ll be in the office one day — and out turning heads within a few days!
“My Smartlipo experience was excellent, much easier than anticipated! The staff at the Center are so nice and make you feel comfortable. Dr. Miller is fabulous at what he does. I will come again.” J.B*

How is laser body sculpting different than liposuction?
The development of laser technology has completely changed the way we think about liposuction. Smartlipo® refers to the newest technology, which combines three laser wavelengths that are blended together to reduce fat, decrease bruising, and tighten the skin. Smartlipo® is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure as compared to traditional liposuction which is a surgical procedure that is typically done under general anesthesia with a longer recovery time.
The advantages of Smartlipo® are:
- No general anesthesia or IV sedation
- Tiny incisions
- Limited discomfort*
- Minimal downtime*
- Reduces fat and sculpts away those difficult to burn fat reserves
- Tightens skin
- Typically only one treatment session for each area is needed*
Smartlipo® has become increasingly popular with men and women nationwide after receiving rave reviews from online TV personalities such as Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and other news outlets. Review our Q & A Section for more frequently asked questions.

Results may vary on different patients
Dr. Miller performs Smartlipo® as an outpatient procedure, under a light oral sedation and local anesthesia, using tiny incisions. Because of the multiple wavelength laser, there is limited discomfort and minimal downtime.*
The procedure begins with Dr. Miller marking the areas to be treated. You will then be lightly sedated to make the experience more comfortable. Dr. Miller then numbs the areas using a tumescent technique that he has used for 8+ years. The solution is introduced through tiny incisions, no wider than the tip of a pencil. There is no need for an intravenous catheter or an anesthesiologist. Once the underlying layer of fat is numb, a tiny fiber optic thread is inserted, which delivers the laser energy necessary to melt fat and tighten up your skin.
Dr. Miller inserts a laser fiber through a small incision, delivering energy directly to subcutaneous fat cells- causing them to rupture. This energy also heats the tissue, thus inducing collagen retraction and tissue tightening. This tightening effect is particularly remarkable for the neck area.
The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately—resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising than conventional liposuction, for faster healing and recovery.
Given the small size of the laser fiber and the gentleness of the procedure, Smartlipo® is a minimally invasive treatment that only requires local anesthesia—enhancing patient safety and reducing the likelihood of side effects.*
Typically only one treatment session for each area is needed to achieve the desired body contouring results.*
WHAT IS Smartlipo® RECOVERY TIME?
While recovery times vary from patient to patient, we find that most patients are back to work in a few days if they wish. Because Smartlipo® is minimally invasive recovery time has been reduced along with reduced bruising.* You will be guided to use a compression garment to help mold your final result. The amount of time you will need to wear a garment will be determined by the area treated and by your natural skin elasticity.
