If you have been committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which includes a balanced diet and regular exercise, you might have encountered stubborn areas on your body that seem resistant to change. Previously, invasive surgical procedures were the main recourse to target these persistent fatty areas. But a powerful body contouring tool called laser liposuction will help you through this. In contrast to traditional liposuction, laser lipo offers the advantage of being performed without the requirement of general anaesthesia. Additionally, it is known for its relatively shorter recovery period and enhanced comfort during the healing process.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive fat removal procedure that offers a convenient and efficient solution for targeting stubborn pockets of fat. It provides patients with an affordable alternative to traditional liposuction surgery. With the ability to be performed in our office using local anesthesia, laser lipo eliminates the need for costly operating room fees and reduces the risks associated with general anesthesia. Moreover, the specific energy utilized during the procedure aids in breaking up fat cells, leading to reduced bruising, swelling, and recovery time compared to conventional liposuction.
Areas Where the Procedure Can be Used?
There are many areas where the treatment can be applied. These are the ones:
- Chin area
How the Laser Liposuction is Different from Traditional liposuction?
Laser liposuction offers distinct advantages compared to traditional liposuction. Firstly, laser lipo can be performed using local anesthesia and sedation alone, providing a more convenient and cost-effective option compared to general anesthesia required for traditional liposuction. Moreover, laser lipo employs targeted laser energy to gently dislodge fat cells, enabling easier removal while minimizing harm to surrounding tissues. This results in reduced swelling, bruising, and a shorter recovery period. Lastly, the advanced technology ensures prompt processing and preparation of harvested fat cells for potential fat transfer, selecting the most viable and consistent cells to optimize outcomes.
How Many Fats Can Be Removed by the Laser Liposuction?
The amount of fat that can be safely and effectively removed through laser liposuction is influenced by various factors, with BMI (body mass index) being a primary consideration. BMI is determined by dividing a person’s body weight in kilograms by their height in meters and is used to assess the risk of potential medical conditions.
It’s important to note that BMI is not a direct indicator of body fat percentage as it does not distinguish between muscle and fat. However, it serves as a useful initial reference for many individuals. In cases where the BMI is relatively high, laser liposuction can potentially eliminate up to 11 pounds of fat. Conversely, individuals with lower BMI values or higher BMI values due to muscle mass rather than fat may not be able to achieve the same level of fat reduction.
How Long Does the Procedure Takes?
The duration of your laser liposuction treatment will depend on the number of areas being treated, the fat composition in those areas, and the size of the areas. On average, each body area being treated requires approximately one hour for the procedure. Therefore, if you are receiving treatment for multiple areas, it is advisable to allocate one hour for each area. For instance, a comprehensive treatment targeting the abdomen, waist, and hips, often referred to as Lipo360 or circumferential lipo, may require a morning session to complete the procedure.
Are the Results of Laser Liposuction Stays Permanent?
The results of laser liposuction are considered to be long-lasting, and the fat removed during the procedure is permanently eliminated from the body. However, it is important to note that maintaining the results requires an ongoing commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Your body will continue to respond and adapt to the lifestyle choices you make, including your diet and exercise habits. If you do not maintain careful attention to these factors over the long term, there is a possibility that your results may gradually diminish. On the other hand, by consistently practising healthy habits, you can expect the results of laser liposuction to be sustained throughout your lifetime.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
The number of laser liposuction sessions required will be determined during your initial consultation, taking into consideration your individual circumstances. Typically, each treatment session lasts approximately one hour. Most clients choose to address 1 or 2 areas per session. For example, one session may focus on treating the chest and abdomen, while another session may target the back, thighs, or upper arms. The specific areas to be treated and the scheduling of sessions will be determined based on your personalized treatment plan.
Laser liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be performed on various areas of the body, offering customization based on your specific goals and needs.
Laser liposuction is an outpatient procedure, eliminating the need for an overnight hospital stay.\
