Laser liposuction, which is also referred to as laser lipolysis or laser lipo, offers patients who desire permanent fat reduction a minimally invasive alternative to conventional liposuction via cutting-edge laser technology.
The benefits of laser liposuction typically include:
- Less downtime
- Minimal side effects
- Safety and precision
- Skin tightening effects
Laser Liposuction Indications
Laser liposuction can precisely target and effectively treat a variety of body areas, including the face, neck, upper arms, back, flanks, belly, waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees and ankles.
The best candidates for laser lipo are men and women who are in generally good health, are not more than 25 lbs. overweight and wish to get rid of stubborn fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to remember that laser liposuction is not a weight loss method, and adhering to a regular exercise routine and healthy diet after your procedure will help maintain your laser liposuction results.

Laser Liposuction Recovery
When gentle, effective laser energy is used to melt fat cells during laser liposuction, very little blood loss and tissue trauma occurs, which means that your body can recover much more quickly after laser lipo than from conventional liposuction methods.
Common liposuction side effects, such as swelling, bruising and discomfort, are reduced with laser liposuction and typically last only a few days. As a result, downtime after laser liposuction is minimal and does not require significant absence from work or prolonged avoidance of normal daily activities.
