Laser lipo techniques are used to remove excess fat deposits from the body. Laser lipo techniques are designed to be minimally invasive when compared to traditional surgical liposuction procedures. This means that liposuction performed with the laser lipo equipment and technique can be done faster than traditional liposuction, and without any big incisions, general anaesthesia, and while providing a safer way to sculpt the body for the patient.
Laser technology is used in dental, eye and cosmetic surgeries routinely. Doctors who want to provide efficient treatment choose Laser liposuction techniques.
It is easy to see how laser lipo techniques achieve the desired results; they use a calibrated laser that first liquefies fat deposits. The laser lipo device is inserted through a small incision in the skin. The laser actually breaks down the fat cells and the oily substance that oozes through is sucked out using a suction device or cannula.
The advantage of laser liposuction is that the narrow laser beam can actually seal the blood vessels as it ruptures the fat cells and can also help the skin shrink after a laser liposuction. Therefore, there is less bleeding, bruising and swelling as compared to traditional liposuction and the patient's skin can look tighter and smoother. With Laser Liposuction, patients can see fast results with reduced complications.
Another great advantage in using laser liposuction technique is the use of local anaesthesia versus general anaesthesia used in traditional liposuction. This provides extra safety for the patient and fewer complications post surgery.
Laser Lipo Techniques can be effectively used on healthy individuals who are within 40 pounds of their target weight and who have not lost stubborn fat in certain areas despite exercise or dieting.
Laser liposuction is approved by FDA.
Besides the safety and recovery time advantages of laser lipo techniques; they are also cheaper. Laser lipo techniques cost is lesser when compared to traditional liposuction. This is mainly because general anaesthesia is eliminated in laser lipo techniques making it more affordable.
Laser lipo cost typically varies between $1500 to $6000 depending upon the area to be treated, amount of fat to be suction out and other factors.
There are many laser lipo techniques, each one with their own advantages. The most common laser lipo techniques are:
Smart Lipo is a non-invasive fat removal procedure which uses the focused power of laser energy to break up and dissolve fatty tissue trapped beneath the skin. By directing the energy to the area beneath the surface of the skin, the Smart Lipo technique also encourages the development of collagen, which results in a tighter, more toned appearance overall.
The technique is especially popular because it requires no incisions or general anaesthesia, and therefore offers a quick recovery time. SmartLipo also helps treat localized pockets of fat which cannot be effectively treated with traditional liposuction techniques.
