What Improvements do you get from Laser Liposuction? Liposuction surgery has come a long way since it was invented more than three decades ago. The latest techniques for body contouring and excess fat removal involve the use of laser energy to melt fat cells in the targeted area. A minimally invasive procedure for hi-definition body sculpting, laser liposuction offers many improvements over other methods. Laser Liposuction Surgery offers Many Benefits Laser liposuction treatment is a great way to remove excess fat from various areas of the body such as the face, neck, chin, back, abdomen, waist, thighs, hips, knees, ankles, and buttocks. A slim cannula with tiny laser fibers is inserted in the area to be treated. Laser energy TM
melts the fat which is then easily suctioned off. SmartLipo Triplex , the latest device, uses 1440, 1064 and 1320 nm wavelengths for superior results. The improvements that the new laser-assisted modality offers are many: •
It is useful for the removal of small pockets of fat and works well on even very sensitive and delicate areas like the face, and fibrotic areas like the male breast and flanks.
Performed as an outpatient procedure and uses local anesthesia as compared to general anesthesia in conventional liposuction techniques. As the patient is awake, it is easier for the surgeon
to perform post-surgery evaluation and correction. The lasers effectively target and liquefy the adipose tissues which contain the fat cells, allowing the removal of larger
volumes of fat. The trauma to the surrounding tissues and skin are minimal with laser liposuction treatment. The laser coagulates the blood vessels. So, there is less bleeding, less bruising and less pain.
No loose skin as in traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction is designed
production of collagen. • •
There is no scarring as the incisions are tiny and do not require sutures. They heal within weeks of the procedure. As the procedure is less traumatic for the patient, it ensures less downtime. The patient is up and about immediately following the
procedure, and back to work in a couple of days. Safety is ensured as the latest laser liposuction modalities like SmartLipo Triplex feature SmartSense with ThermaGuide for reliable, controlled energy delivery. SmartSense shuts down the laser automatically when the handpiece is moved above a certain speed and this helps avoid heat-induced skin damage.
Laser liposuction surgery works best for men and women who are close to their ideal weight and want to get rid excess fat for a contoured face or figure. It is important to have realistic expectations about the results. Find an Experienced Plastic Surgeon To get all the improvements that laser liposuction offers, find an experienced plastic surgeon using the latest modalities and techniques. Make sure that the plastic surgery center is AAAASF-accredited. This would ensure safe and effective liposuction treatment in a congenial environment.
