laser liposuction

An alternative to the traditional liposuction, laser liposuction is an up and coming updated fat removal and body sculpting method. Utilizing techniques associated with tumescent liposuction, this popular method uses lasers to break up fats before removing it from the body, reducing the need for harsh suction. Read on as we share on a few popular reasons why you should switch to laser liposuction.

Minimally Invasive

Requiring only a small incision for the laser cannula to reach the fat before the laser could break down, liquify and remove the fat cells, it is much less invasive from the traditional liposuction. The traditional method involves large tubes that is meant to suck out and remove fats from the designated area of the body. These tubes reach around and throughout the body causing pain and even bruising around the areas that was worked on. Apart from being minimally invasive and lesser discomfort, the new method – laser liposuction also encourages coagulation to control bleeding.

Shorter Treatment Period

Due to its minimally invasive nature, patients can even look into laser liposuction treatments over lunch hour. Despite the shorter treatment time, there is heightened safety in this procedure as the laser technology reduces the risk of infection while effectively removing fat cells.  Treatment is fast yet safe, allowing patients to enjoy the body sculpting process with ease of mind.

Faster Recovery Period

Again, because laser liposuction requires minimal invasion during the process, patients who undergo the treatment can expect minimal pain or even discomfort. This allows faster recovery after the procedure and patients can resume their normal lives within a matter of hours and days.

Sculpted Body Appearance

Using laser liposuction, it helps to stimulate tissue coagulation and collagen production in your body after treatment which helps the patient to enjoy a tighter and natural sculpted appearance. On top of that, patients who worry about having saggy skin leftover from the treated areas could rest their minds as patients who opted for laser liposuction would see visible tighter skin and more sculpted treatment areas with laser technology.

Putting together all the benefits of laser liposuction as compared to the traditional method, it is no wonder why laser liposuction is the up and coming fat removal and sculpting method.
