Liposuction is one of the leading cosmetic procedures done around the world. Apart from the well-known surgery, there’s a new cosmetic procedure that’s melting fat and reshaping bodies – laser liposuction. This treatment isn’t as popular as its sister, but it may be just as effective for people who want to lose a bit of undesired fat. Here are some things you should know about laser liposuction.
Removes Stubborn Fat
Laser lipo works to destroy fat deposits that haven’t responded to strenuous exercises and diet. It’s an effective and safe procedure that melts away fat deposits and prevents the build-up of fat in the area treated.
Tightens Loose Skin
Traditional liposuction gets rid of fat, but laser liposuction does that and more. It helps tighten loose skin. Laser lipo uses heat, which liquefies fat and smoothens and tightens the skin. This makes the procedure an ideal option for people with weak skin elasticity. With this option, you get tighter skin and less fat.
Provides Permanent Results
Fat cells don’t reproduce in adults, so when you receive laser liposuction treatment, that fat will not return. You won’t have fat deposits in treated areas in the future. But this doesn’t mean you won’t gain weight. When you gain weight, the fat will be in other areas.
Laser liposuction is minimally-invasive and it uses laser heat to liquefy and get rid of extra fat from the treated area. The procedure typically makes use of local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia. Patients only feel slight pressure during the treatment.
Can Treat Small Areas
Laser lipo can help get rid of fat from small areas on your body like chins, cheeks and curves as the treatment liquefies and extracts that excess fat. The areas that may be treated by this procedure include the back, buttock, abdominal area, chin, face, neck, male breasts, hips, outer and inner thighs, saddlebags, upper arms, as well as virtually any other part of the body where there may be unwanted fat.
Less Discomfort And Minimal Downtime
You can receive laser liposuction and head home with minimal downtime. You’ll feel less discomfort than with traditional lipo and experience only brief disturbance because the procedure uses a laser and local anesthesia.
After receiving this procedure, you can get back to your regular activities sooner rather than later.
