Q: What makes Laser Lipo different from conventional liposuction?
A: Conventional liposuction is more invasive than Laser Lipo. Because Laser Lipo makes use of laser incisions and laser-assisted lipid dispersion, it contours the body with immediately-noticeable results. Fewer side effects are experienced and recovery time is less than with conventional liposuction.

Q: Am I a good candidate to undergo Laser Lipo?
A: Anyone who has overly fatty areas on their body that do not respond to dieting and exercise is a good candidate for Laser Lipo.

Q: Has Laser Lipo been approved by the FDA?
A: Yes. Laser Lip was approved by the FDA in November 2006.

Q: How safe is Laser Lipo?
A: Patients experience less bleeding, and not as much local anesthetic is required for Laser Lipo. Both of these factors make Laser Lipo much safer than traditional liposuction.

Q: Is the procedure painful?
A: No. The pain associated with Laser Lipo after the anesthetic has worn off has been likened to the aches and pains experienced after an intensive workout.

Q: What parts of my body can be treated?
A: Laser Lipo is ideal for any part of the body where fat may build up, including abdomen, face, neck, back, hips, thighs and upper arms.

Q: How many treatments are required?
A: Most patients only need one treatment per area of the body. Each treatment takes from 45 to 60 minutes to complete.

Q: How long will it take for complete recovery?
A: Most patients are able to return to work the very next day, but we usually advise resting a day or two before returning.

Q: Can Laser Lipo treat my cellulite?
A: Laser Lipo will improve the shape of your body and tighten sagging skin. When combined with our unique FDA-approved techniques, the enhanced results may improve any problems with cellulite.

Q: When can I expect to see the results?
A: Results will be noticeable immediately after the procedure, but the shape of your body will continue to improve over the next 3 to 6 months.

Q: How long will the results last?
A: Because Laser Lipo permanently removes fat cells, the results are long-lasting.
