Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses sophisticated laser technology for fat removal and skin tightening in specific areas. Laser liposuction can deliver remarkable results, with minimal swelling and bruising, and significantly less patient downtime than traditional liposuction. Laser lipolysis is a non-invasive way to sculpt the body. Like surgical liposuction, this procedure permanently removes fat cells from the body.
However, it is much less painful and recovery from laser lipolysis is also shorter and less complicated. It also carries a lower risk of sagging skin afterwards. Laser Liposuction Uses Heat Energy to Destroy Excess Fat Cells. The laser device is carefully inserted under the skin through small incisions and begins to deliver heat below the layers of the skin.
This advanced heat energy begins to liquefy fat cells, allowing them to be easily sucked out of the body. Laser energy also promotes the contraction of collagen fibers in the deep dermis and stimulates the growth of new collagen. As tissues begin to contract and coagulate, the skin around the target area becomes firmer, producing firmer, more youthful looking results. Lipo laser offers many benefits over traditional liposuction.
This type of treatment uses laser energy to burn fat, which is then metabolically eliminated from the body through natural means. There is no suction involved as with traditional liposuction, reducing the risk of complications. Lipo laser is also much less invasive, reducing the risk of scarring. Lipo laser also provides less downtime than traditional, usually around two days compared to up to 10 days for traditional liposuction.
During laser liposuction, low laser energy levels stimulate fat cell membranes, changing their permeability. Cells lose their round shape and intracellular fat is released. Fatty triglycerides then flow out of altered cell membranes into the interstitial space, where they gradually pass through the body's natural metabolic functions without harmful physiological effects and are used as an energy source for the body. This process does not alter neighboring structures, such as skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves.
It's not just about the liquefaction of fat, but about the instant breakdown of fat cells, also known as lipolysis. Laser liposuction is also ideal for patients looking to reduce submental fat and reduce double chin. To maintain the optimal results of laser liposuction after your procedure, it is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle complete with diet and exercise to help prevent future fat cell buildups. Experts have observed that laser lipolysis and laser-assisted liposuction result in skin tightening after the procedure.
Laser liposuction is an ideal option for shaping the face, neck and body to provide a firmer, more natural appearance. Laser liposuction is especially effective in reducing the appearance of stubborn fat that has not responded to exercise or diet. To maximize the results of laser liposuction, it is important to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. In addition, laser liposuction can complement other facial rejuvenation and body contouring techniques.
Jody Levine and the NYC Lipo staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any laser liposuction questions you may have. Laser liposuction and CoolSculpting are fat reduction procedures that have minimal downtime and a quick recovery period. Traditional liposuction procedures involve invasive techniques that carry certain risks, but laser lipo provides you with a less invasive option that produces effective results. Prior Care Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks leading up to the laser liposuction procedure, unless medically necessary.
People who undergo laser liposuction may experience a small amount of swelling, bruising, and mild pain. .
