ProLipo™ is a new, state-of-the-art, minimally invasive body contouring technique that targets fatty tissue and uses laser energy to melt away fat. The treatment can be used on its own, or in conjunction with other liposuction treatment procedures. Individuals opt for ProLipo treatment to dissolve fat from a wide range of body areas, such as the chin, neck, abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and male chest. Patients can expect to see immediate results.
Those undergoing ProLipo receive localized anesthesia to numb the targeted area. Once the area is numb, your plastic surgeon will pass a laser fiber through small openings in the skin. The fatty tissue absorbs the laser energy and breaks down. At the same time, the laser energy causes the skin to tighten, creating the body sculpting for which ProLipo is known. Patients can expect an average recovery time of one to two days following the treatment session, during which they may experience mild pain and bruising.
ProLipo is similar to SmartLipo™, but the session takes longer—one to two hours, rather than 30-45 minutes. As an advantage, though, ProLipo typically requires only one session (Smart Lipo usually requires one to three sessions). Both ProLipo and SmartLipo tend to run from $2,000-$4,000 per session, on average, depending on the region and provider. As of now, SmartLipo is more readily available in medical spas and plastic surgery offices, but ProLipo is definitely hot on its heels.
For individuals who maintain a healthy diet and exercise schedule, but also want to eliminate stubborn, localized areas of fat, ProLipo can truly be the ideal procedure. The treatment can remove several layers of fatty tissue and trim inches, but it’s important to note that it is
If you’re struggling with certain “problem areas” that your gym routine and diet regimen just can’t seem to fix, you might be a candidate for ProLipo. Speaking with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the most important step you can take when considering such a procedure. He or she will help you decide whether ProLipo is the best option for you, and whether your needs will require a combination of liposuction and ProLipo techniques. Your cosmetic specialist can also help you determine which areas of your body could really benefit from the procedure.
