Laser-assisted liposuction combines fat reduction techniques with laser technology to achieve body contouring results. While individual results vary, this procedure has replaced traditional liposuction for many patients due to minimal down time and side effects.* Dr. Birchall performs laser-assisted liposuction at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to sculpt a broad range of body areas with generally less discomfort and downtime.*
Who is it for?
Laser-assisted liposuction can be used to remove isolated, stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded well to diet and exercise. It is typically recommended for patients that have achieved a healthy body weight and have small fat deposits that are interfering with their overall body contour. Laser-assisted liposuction can be used on the following treatment areas:*
- Midsection and lower back
- Hips and thighs
- Love handles
- Arms and chest
- Neck and chin
How does it work?
Laser-assisted liposuction can be performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia and possible sedation. First, a tumescent solution is injected into the treatment area, which minimizes bruising and bleeding during the procedure. A very small cannula is inserted into the fat deposit, which delivers targeted laser energy to liquefy fat cells. When the fat cells are in a liquefied state, they are typically much easier to remove from the body, using gentle suction.*
What results can I expect?
Individual results may vary, but results of laser-assisted liposuction can usually be seen immediately following treatment, although full results will be more apparent once the body has completely healed from the procedure. Fat deposits will leave the body and there will be a smoother, more even body contour left in their place. Laser energy also generally stimulates collagen production in the treatment area, which can result in skin conforming more efficiently to the new body contour.*
