Are you struggling to get rid of stubborn fat that is not responding to diet or exercise? You may benefit from liposuction if those last few pounds are difficult to shake. Traditional liposuction involves invasive techniques that do not appeal to everyone.
Fortunately, laser lipo has an option that is less invasive but produces effective results. Here is more information about the laser lipo procedure and what to expect.
Laser lipo is a nonsurgical outpatient procedure that does not require much preparation. It does not require an overnight hospital stay or a long recovery. Preparing for the treatment will depend on the type of anesthesia used. If you are on certain medications, you may need to stop taking them days before the procedure.
Ask the doctor about your options to reduce the risk of complications. If you smoke, you need to quit before the procedure. Smoking can increase the risk of infections and interfere with the healing process.
The laser lipo procedure should not be painful. You will likely get local anesthesia before the treatment to numb the area. The type of laser lipo and the number of treatment areas will determine the time it takes to complete the procedure.
During the treatment, the doctor uses a device that emits laser energy over the targeted area. The cutting-edge technology melts fat cells, and the liquified fat is removed through a cannula.
After the procedure, you will experience some soreness, which gradually diminishes within a few days. For several days after the procedure, you should limit your activities. You may need to wear a compression belt for some time to help with healing and reduce the risk of complications.
Your skin will feel firmer or tighter after the treatment, as the laser promotes collagen production. Leading a healthy lifestyle will help ensure that you maintain the results of the laser treatment.

Laser lipo is ideal for individuals in their ideal weight range looking to get rid of excess fat. The procedure helps remove fat from the hips, abdomen, thighs, back, and face. It is not a weight-loss technique and is only ideal for physically and mentally healthy people. Pregnant women, smokers, and people with certain medical conditions are not good candidates for laser lipo.
Laser lipo is a safe and effective fat removal procedure, and the results are permanent when a healthy lifestyle is maintained. You can expect to see results about one week after the session. The results continue to improve to reach optimum within two to six months.
