Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction

In contrast to traditional liposuction, laser liposuction involves melting the fat first, followed by skin tightening. It is a liposuction procedure used to treat excess localized fat that cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. There is not a scar because it uses 1 mm fiber cannulas, which are thinner than those used in traditional liposuction.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

A doctor’s office can perform laser liposuction. You can get back to your regular activities after around 30 minutes. There is no anesthesia involved.

To do the laser “lipo,” your doctor attaches paddle-like applicators to the area to be treated. The paddles emit heat that penetrates your skin and heats up the fat cells underneath. The heat damages the membranes of the fat cells, so they start to die off. Your body then absorbs the dead cells.

It takes time — about six weeks — to see the final results of the treatment. After that, you should have noticeable sculpting in the area that was treated. Some people need more than one treatment for optimal results.

The recovery is very easy. Most people can resume normal activity the same day, though you may encounter some soreness or redness at the treatment site.

Is Laser Lipo Safe?

Experts believe that laser lipo is a safe procedure. But before going back to work and waiting three weeks before engaging in rigorous activities, you’ll need to take a few days off.
