Laser-Assisted Liposuction: A High-Tech Way to Contour Those Inches Away

Published on October 10, 2019

Do you want to say goodbye forever to your double chin, paunchy stomach, flabby arms, or thunder thighs? Laser-assisted liposuction can help you achieve the toned and defined look you’ve always wanted.

This high-tech medical procedure is not a substitute for weight loss. Rather, it steps in when you’ve tried your best to lose that extra weight but are now left with localized fat in small areas. This type of fat is next to impossible to lose without a little assistance, and this is where laser-assisted liposuction is most effective.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Laser-Assisted Liposuction?

Laser-assisted liposuction is effective in removing localized fat and redefining your figure. Many people opt for this procedure to seek improvement in the following areas:
• Double chin
• Upper arms
• Knees
• Top of the thighs
• Stomach
• Back
• Hips

Laser-Assisted Liposuction: What to Expect During the Procedure

Laser-assisted liposuction is conducted in a doctor’s office using local anesthesia. It is safe for all skin types. During the procedure, you will remain awake, comfortable, and in no pain. Dr. Glassman will begin the procedure by numbing the targeted area with a local anesthetic. A small incision will be made and a tiny tool will be inserted just underneath your skin.

This fiber-optic tube delivers direct and precise pulses of laser energy into the fatty areas. Dr. Glassman will locate key areas using a light-guided laser beam, which will be observable through your skin. The laser’s thermal effect breaks down fat cell membranes and liquefies them. This makes it easier to remove the fat cells. The liquefied fat will be carried out of the body using a cannula and vacuum suction.

The heat of the laser also helps to restructure collagen, coagulate blood vessels, and strengthen skin elasticity. This promotes tissue contraction, leaving the patient with tighter and firmer skin in the treatment area.

What to Expect After the Procedure

Most people who undergo laser-assisted liposuction do not have a lengthy period of downtime. Doctors recommend taking a couple of days off from work and at least a few weeks before participating in any strenuous activities like sports or heavy exercise.

Pain, swelling, numbness, and bruising are minimal and will fade shortly. To help patients manage any discomfort, Dr. Glassman may prescribe painkillers.

Everyone’s recovery process is different, but a majority of people are able to return to work within a couple of days. Once full recovery is complete, patients can enjoy their impressive and natural-looking results.

What Are Some Advantages of Laser-Assisted Liposuction?

With the help of laser-assisted liposuction, patients can experience the following benefits:
• Permanent removal of stubborn fat deposits
• Tightening of loose skin
• Effective body sculpting and contouring
• Minimal downtime and discomfort after the procedure
