laser-lipo-pictureLaser liposuction is a fast, safe, and minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to melt and remove unwanted areas of fat. In addition to removing unwanted fat, the laser’s thermal effect causes the skin to contract, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. The laser procedure requires minimal healing time and very little discomfort. This technique uses low doses of heat from heat-generating lasers to selectively break up unwanted fat and reshape your body.

This procedure is also known as laser-assisted lipolysis (or laser lipo), which is an enhanced version of traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction is considered to be an aggressive and highly invasive procedure that could harm other body tissues. Laser lipo is minimally invasive with almost no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, although more strenuous activities should not be done for a few days afterward. Laser lipo can be used as an alternative to traditional liposuction depending on the patient’s background.
