3 Benefits of Laser Liposuction

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018

Sometimes, diet and exercise aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn body fat. Traditionally, invasive procedures like liposuction have been used to remove fat from the thighs, abdomen, and other areas. New technologies are available, and New England Laser Lipo specializes in a non-invasive, cutting-edge technology called laser lipo to remove fat from the body without surgery.

No Surgery Necessary

Traditional liposuction requires surgery to remove fat cells, but laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure. It’s performed under local anesthesia because only a small incision is made, and most people can return to work in 3-4 days, though results may vary among patients.

Laser-assisted lipo uses the addition of laser energy waves. These low-level waves focus on the treatment area. The laser penetrates the skin and weakens the walls of the fat cells allowing the fat to be more easily removed.  Through a tiny incision, a small cannula will be inserted under the skin to suck out the melted fat. The laser allows for less discomfort, minimal bruising and swelling and superior results compared to traditional liposuction.

Reduces Sagging Skin

Laser liposuction promotes collagen production, which is a protein found in the skin that helps skin appear tighter. With the traditional liposuction procedure, some sagging skin may be left behind when the fat cells are liquefied and removed. Patients who have laser liposuction will notice more sculpted, toned areas and a more contoured appearance.

Quick Recovery and Lower Risk

Because laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure, the recovery time is significantly reduced. Most patients are able to return to work in a few days, and the procedure is performed in our office where you will be able to leave the same day. There is also less swelling and bruising in the area.

Laser liposuction has less risk of infection because the incision is only 1-2 millimeters. Of course, the risk of infection is never fully eliminated, but laser lipo is a safe, cutting-edge procedure that improves skin’s appearance.
