Laser-Like Liposuction is an alternative to traditional, invasive liposuction. Laser lipo is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses laser energy to essentially liquefy fat in any targeted area. The fat is then removed through a very small tube. Treatment typically takes 45 minutes to an hour depending on the areas being treated.
Patients are typically able to resume normal activities (work, school, errands) the same or next day, however, strenuous exercise should be avoided for two weeks. Common side effects include bruising and tenderness in the treated area.
Results are noticeable immediately after the initial swelling subsides (since the fat has been removed entirely.) Skin-tightening is also a benefit that follows laser lipo, due to the natural elasticity of our skin and laser usage. For many of our patients, this extra benefit makes laser-liposuction even more appealing than traditional methods, which eliminate fat but not does tighten skin.
