Laser Lipolysis has undergone several developments to get to the innovative treatment that we know today that provides beautiful results with very minimal pain and recovery time required. One of the hardest parts of losing weight or living a healthy lifestyle is getting rid of that last little bit of stubborn fat. Laser lipolysis provides a safe option to permanently rid us of those fat pockets while leaving behind younger, tighter, smoother-looking skin and allowing us to feel more confident than ever.
Laser lipolysis (also commonly referred to as laser lipo) is a cosmetic procedure that removes the subcutaneous fat that is considered unwanted or excess. With only the need for local anesthesia and a small incision, the unwanted membranes of fat are liquefied by lasers and are then removed from the site by the use of a cannula (a device that suctions). Laser lipo is incredibly effective at removing unwanted fat that just won’t seem to go away without more invasive measures. Though this is not used as a medical weight loss treatment, laser lipo is able to provide patients with a smooth and contoured appearance.
Since laser lipo is used to remove smaller unwanted fat deposits, it is able to provide permanent results with far less recovery time and pain that is associated with traditional surgical liposuction. It only requires a small incision to be cut and works on small sections at a time, so there is far less damage to need to recover from, and it also comes with a very low risk of loose skin being left behind after the procedure. Even though it is considered a surgical procedure, it is minimally invasive, providing a safer option for those who are not comfortable getting traditional liposuction. The laser also helps to stimulate collagen production, making the skin at the site of the procedure appear to be tighter and smoother than before.
Many patients will notice a difference almost immediately after the procedure is complete in that their skin will appear much tighter and smoother due to the use of lasers. The final and desired results will not fully develop for closer to 6 to 12 weeks and sometimes require a second treatment to be done to attain the final results that the patient desires.
Other than not being pregnant at the time of the procedure, one of the most important qualities of a viable candidate for laser lipolysis is that they are in good health. This procedure is not intended to provide significant weight loss and will only provide permanent results so long as the patient does not gain a significant amount of weight afterward. It is recommended that the patient already is within 30% of what their ideal body weight would be. Patients who are chosen to undergo this procedure are typical of what is considered a healthy or normal body weight and only wish to be rid of specific areas of fat that have proven stubborn even with proper diet and exercise. The patient should also be of good health as with all minimally invasive procedures, there lies a small risk of infection, so only treating healthy patients helps to minimize that risk.
After undergoing a laser liposuction treatment, it is very common to experience some swelling and light bruising at the site of treatment, which should go away on its own within two weeks. It is recommended that patients wear a compression garment to help minimize that swelling and smoother the skin, as well as start giving themselves lymphatic massages to help the area heal beautifully.
Recovery time required may also depend on the quantity of area that was treated, as those with only small areas that were treated may only need to take a few days off from work and regular activities, and those who have undergone more extensive laser lipo may require a longer recovery time to make sure that the healing process goes smoothly.
