Laser Liposuction

4.7
  4.7 /5 (9 Reviews)

Laser Liposuction Often promoted as the next evolution in liposuction, laser-assisted lipolysis, or Laser Lipo, is a fat removal procedure that uses advanced laser technology to breakdown fat deposits in the thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, and even the neck and chin area.

Rather than relying on the traditional suction tube of tumescent liposuction, Laser Liposuction uses a noodle thin cannula, which can be inserted below the skin through a very tiny incision. This means less blood loss and less risk of scarring for the patient. Computer guided laser energy is then activated to heat and breakdown targeted fat deposits, which are liquefied and retrieved through the cannula.

Plastic surgeons who offer Laser Liposuction routinely credit the procedure for achieveing comparable results to tumescent liposuction with fewer risk factors and less pain to the patient. Laser Lipo patients typically only need a local anesthetic for their procedure, rather than general anesthesia, and the recovery time for a Laser Lipo procedure tends to be quicker, as the operation is considerably less invasive.

The best known brand name associated with Laser Liposuction is SmartLipo™ , which is offered by a number of plastic surgeons in the PSP network.

"I have every reason to believe I will have outstanding results from my ultrasound. The nurse was outstanding, simultaneously remaining kind, calm, and professional throughout the process. She made the experience better by talking just enough to keep me distracted from the pain. Epione is a beautiful destination and while it's really expensive, I believe you get what you pay for. I look forward to many more procedures there when I can afford them."

"I really can't think of anything that needs improvement. Procedure was easy to schedule, price was very competitive and surgery and the initial follow up went as per my expectations. I am on 7 days post OP so it is too early to say that the results meet my expectations, but initial results look promising and I am hopeful that the final results (3 months) will be as per my expectations."
