Achieve a more defined, less flabby and slimmer silhouette with this surgical procedure.
Unlike traditional liposuction, laser liposuction or laser lipolysis allows the removal of localized fat with a less invasive technique by using the latest laser technology to break up fat deposits.
Laser liposuction is a procedure that is mostly used on abdomen, buttocks, legs, double chin, back and arms.
Thanks to this surgery, recovery times are faster than a traditional liposuction. Its technology allows an evident decrease in edema, postoperative pain, and ecchymosis (also called bruising). Among the post-surgical cares, it is suggested to avoid strong efforts during at least 8 days after the procedure is done.
The majority of the patients feel capable of returning to their daily activities from 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, and resuming physical exercises after two weeks. On the other hand, laser liposuction stimulates the process of Neocollagenesis or new collagen production after surgery. This allows the skin to look tighter than before and feel firmer.
In addition, its state-of-the-art technology reduces the appearance of fibrosis in the skin. Fibrosis is the abnormal scarring of tissues that causes bumps in the treated area, but with laser liposuction, this possibility is significantly reduced.
To sum up, it is clear that having a thinner figure, with a short amount of recovery time, and that looks natural, is possible thanks to the surgery called laser lipolysis.
24 to 48 hours after the procedure.
Avoid exertion for at least 8 days after surgery.
The approximate procedure time is 2 hours.
How does laser liposuction work?
The physician introduces a laser fiber through tiny incisions previously set at the working area.
These incisions are done in a very discreet way, their size is approximately 1 centimeter, in order to improve the healing process and the skin’s aesthetics.
Then, the fiber moves back and forth while the laser’s energy dissolves the fat cells. Once this is done, the adipose content is extracted through a suction system without causing damage to nearby organs.
