For individuals looking for slimmer bodies with the least amount of effort, a favorite fix is liposuction. However, this fat-reducing method accompanies a few downsides, particularly if your skin is unable to assume any slack. Pouches of drooping skin may set back the goal of using cosmetic surgery to treat stubborn fat.
Fortunately, this is where laser lipolysis takes over and picks up wherever the traditional liposuction has left off. Studies show this improved technique may by the solution to optimal body sculpting.

Laser assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure using heat from fiber-optic lasers at many wavelengths in order to melt off the body fat. Different than liposuction, which comprises taking away fat from the body with a vacuum suction, laser lipolysis encourages the making of protein collagen which delivers tauter skin.
Results from laser lipolysis and traditional liposuction procedures of over 2,000 patients found that overall, patients lost a substantial amount of fat bulk in various parts of the body with increases of skin tightness reported. Patients suffered from no major problems or complications although some felt slight pain and bruising.
Laser assisted liposuction may be useful by itself in fat removal, however, combining lipolysis with liposuction in general will produce the greatest results in regards to shrinking and tightening the skin.
Many will not try traditional liposuction since they associate the procedure with producing sagging results. However, uniting traditional liposuction with laser assisted liposuction is shown to produce sculpted bodies with tauter abdomens without a need for invasive surgeries.
Studies also show that laser assisted liposuction is an efficient and safe procedure for targeting minor areas of fat in the body, and since it’s achieved on an outpatient basis, recovery times are usually quicker. Liposuction, both traditional liposuction and laser-assisted, is commonly considered to be safe when performed by a qualified medical professional.
Almost every part of the body can be treated using laser-assisted liposuction. Any extra fat in a particular area can be removed using laser assisted liposuction techniques. Frequently treated zones comprise the jowls, cheeks, breast/chest, neck, upper arms, back, hips, abdomen, waist, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, knees, calves, and even the ankles.
Laser-assisted liposuction can also be used in treating gynecomastia, also known as male breast enlargement. The model candidate for liposuction is anyone close to their ideal weight who presents complications with problem areas that are not reacting to exercise and diet.
