Liposuction was developed to be a solution for losing weight by removing excess fat to improve your body’s contours and proportions. What was once a painful procedure, patients can now sculpt their body with little to no discomfort and minimal downtime. Liposuction technology has advanced to provide faster and more effective results, including laser lipo. This advanced technique can effectively reduce unwanted fat while sculpting and tightening your body.
Under a traditional liposuction treatment, Dr. Willis will suction out fat in treatment areas. This procedure uses hollow tubes that loosen and remove fat cells. For traditional lipo, patients undergo general anesthesia and can experience discomfort in the form of bleeding, bruising and swelling. While this treatment requires longer downtime, it may be more appropriate based on your overall health and personal needs.
Laser liposuction is an innovative treatment that uses a special laser to destroy unwanted fat cells and stimulate tighter skin. This advanced technique allows Dr. Willis to use lasers to liquefy fat cells for easier, less traumatic removal. Laser lipo and the heat it generates also stimulates the production of collagen that promotes tighter skin cells. Patients who receive laser lipo often have minimal bruising, require only local anesthesia and have little downtime. This treatment is often recommended because it is highly effective, can be used almost anywhere on the body, and has a faster recovery time.
Although there are many benefits to laser liposuction, it is not appropriate for all patients. Dr. Willis will discuss both options with you and determine your personal goals to decide which treatment plan is best.
