The laser liposculpture commences with the tumescent liposuction method. The tumescent solution numbs and prepares the fat and helps to close the blood vessels. Then, the laser is passed through the fatty layers to help dissolve and soften the fat. Laser energy provides incredibly effective for fat removal and can make the removal of that by small cannula easier. Following this, the final and 3rd stage is the suction and removal of the damaged and loosened fat cells.
There are other non-surgical devices that our surgeons could use to break down and soften excess fat. These devices include the VelaShape and the Ultrashape. These devices are comparable to a laser since they use ultrasound and radio-frequency to break down fat cells selectively. Our surgeons will suggest laser liposuction or Vaser, mainly if the patient wants to obtain a skin tightening effect from the procedure. View the pre and post-surgery photographs to get an understanding of how much the skin can contact and tighten without cutting surgery.
Lasers and related devices work to help soften and prepare the fat before its removal. All devices need to be operated by expert hands since they can burn the skin if not used appropriately. For laser liposuction, our surgeons use the Vaser device. The Vaser device enables him to soften the fat before removal.
Some practitioners offer laser liposuction or laser lipolysis as a stand-alone procedure; this without the removal of fat from the body. Our surgeons have found that this provides minimal results. Therefore, he believes that fat removal with a microcannula is worthwhile.
Laser liposuction treatment can be quite effective for patients who are struggling with persistent pockets of fat. Most people who choose laser liposuction, have tried to lose the unwanted fat through diet and exercise. However, most people find that they cannot lose fat through diet and exercise alone and therefore chose fat reduction via a surgical procedure.
Of course, patients must be deemed eligible for this treatment before they can benefit from it. So, before you can take advantage of a laser liposuction procedure, you must make an appointment at the clinic for a medical evaluation to ensure that you are a good candidate. During this evaluation, you can also ask your surgeon any questions you may have about a laser liposuction procedure as well as discuss the results you wish to obtain from the treatment.
All cosmetic procedures are associated with some degree of risk. Thanks to new advancements in the world of cosmetic surgery, cosmetic surgeons can reduce some of the risks associated with laser liposuction. However, there is always some risk involved with laser liposuction. Therefore, patients should always read the consent form before they sign it; this form contains all the risks associated with laser liposuction.
Naturally, patients who have any concerns about laser liposuction and the associated risks can always contact the clinic. Our nursing staff is fully informed about each of our procedures, so they can certainly answer any questions you may have. Patients can also book an appointment with our surgeons, during which their concerns can be addressed.
Patients should expect some side effects and downtime during their recovery period. Common side-effects that can accompany body contouring include bruising, swelling, and discomfort on and surrounded the treated areas. Discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and your cosmetic surgeon will provide you with aftercare guidelines for the treatment area, which will assist you in reducing associated symptoms and help you determine the best course of action during your recovery time.
Patients should also consider the risks involved during the procedure. The laser heats the fat and therefore, there is a risk of burn. If the laser beam is passed too close to the skin, a burn could occur which may just present as an area of pigmentation. If it is a stronger burn, there would be skin loss which would then require a week to heal and then there may be red scarring or thickening of the skin.
Note: ALL SURGERY HAS RISKS. RESULTS VARY BETWEEN PEOPLE. EARLY INTERVENTION OF ANY ISSUES AFTER SURGERY ARE IMPORTANT.

Results obtained through laser liposuction could be long lasting, but only if the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercise routine. Patients can obtain more information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle at the nutritionist.
Yes. The garment will help contract and tighten the skin following laser removal and laser treatment of the fat cells. Compression garments or bandages will be provided by the clinic. When bandages are used, the bandages must be replaced at least twenty-four hours after treatment; this is usually done by the medical staff at the clinic.
The compression garments and bandages must be worn per the instruction of your surgeon. Information regarding compression garments and bandages is usually provided just before your procedure takes place.
No. Generally, liposuction, no matter which form, will not help with the reduction of body weight. Liposuction generally can give a patient a kick-start by making the areas lighter and making the areas less fatty so that patient can exercise more easily. I do find that a lot of patients do feel inspired after liposuction and can diet and exercise better.
The most important factor is the skill of the liposuction surgeon. Liposuction is a manual procedure where fat is removed through a back-and-forth movement of the arm. The surgeon needs to monitor every moment how much fat is being removed. This monitoring is done through visual and tactile sensations and is based on years of understanding the effect of having fat removed from different areas. If too much fat is removed, a patient can end up with a more long-term dent or depression. If not enough fat is removed, then there will be residual lumps. If the fat is removed too close to the skin in an inappropriate way, there may be lumpiness. Liposuction performed in a safe way is often very effective and very safe and patients can expect to have a good result.
Yes, the cellulaze procedure is able to improve cellulite by approximately 70%.
It is only performed once.
Treatment starts at $3990 depending on the areas being treated. Plus other associated hospital fees.
Cellulite can be improved with a laser called cellulase but it will never be 100% smooth.
Non-invasive laser lipo is when you use the laser under the skin without actually performing liposuction.
Depending on the technique used by the surgeon, the type of anaesthesia can vary considerably, this includes local anesthesia and general anaesthesia. Please note that the local anaesthetic often carries less risk than general anesthesia. Before your surgical procedure, you will be able to discuss the type of anaesthetic with your surgeon or the anaesthetist.
The laser is most effective for small areas such as the neck or the arms. When treating large areas, the laser has little effect and there would be extra danger related to the heating of the tissue.
The cost of laser liposuction is variable since each patient has specific needs. To determine the exact cost of your laser liposuction procedure, it is always advised to contact your cosmetic surgery clinic for a quote. At the clinic, patients can obtain their quote via email, but also during one of our free no-obligation appointments.
There are many different types of lasers. Some lasers melt tissue such as the laser for liposuction and others vaporise tissue such as laser erbium resurfacing which we use for wrinkles and acne scarring. Lasers can also be used in a cutting mode. This is most commonly done for laser blepharoplasty to get rejuvenation around the eyes.
