Laser assisted liposculpting has become a popular technique that uses laser energy to heat and melt unwanted fat in target areas. It is primarily used for smoothing out the undersurface of the subcutaneous fat, condensing the tissue and tightening the skin.
While performing the minimally invasive liposculpting procedure, Dr. Zimmerman uses a state-of-the-art 25 Watt Nd-YAG 1320 nanometer laser. The wavelengths of the laser energy are mainly absorbed by water and fat which allows Dr. Z to specifically target the unwanted fatty tissue and achieve the ideal results.
Ordinarily, laser body sculpting is performed after the majority of fat has been removed using standard liposuction. However, for individuals with just a little bit of fat under their neck or a tiny bit under their arms, the laser assisted method may be adequate to do the job alone.
Laser liposculpting can be used to precisely contour and tighten the face, cheeks, or chin as an alternative to traditional facelift surgery. The resulting tightening of the skin and muscle after the removal of excess fat in these areas can feel almost like a face or neck lift.
The safety and effectiveness of laser assisted liposuction has improved dramatically over the years thanks to technological advances. Cosmetic surgeons can now eliminate unwanted fat in areas of the body that have been less responsive to traditional liposculpting and provide their patients with a faster and more comfortable recovery.
Once the fatty deposits are liquefied with the laser, they are gently suctioned away with small cannulas or gradually absorbed by the body. Since laser liposculpture doesn’t need as much force to move through the tissues, there is usually less swelling and bruising as a result. Unlike traditional liposuction, the laser’s heat stimulates the creation of collagen, which causes a smoothing and tightening of the skin by contracting the tissues around the affected area.
Laser assisted liposculpting can also be used on a larger scale to sculpt tummies, upper arms, butts and knees, tighten deflated female breasts and treat male gynecomastia (enlargement of the gland tissue of the male breast).
