Laser liposuction

Starting from


Laser liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to remove unwanted fat deposits from various parts of the body. This procedure utilizes laser technology to break down and eliminate fat cells.


Candidates for laser liposuction are typically individuals who are close to their ideal body weight but have localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. They should also be in relatively good health. Before deciding on this treatment, you should consult with a physician or surgeon to determine if you are a suitable candidate.


Preparation for the treatment may involve a thorough examination with your doctor, as well as following specific guidelines, such as discontinuing certain medications before the procedure.


The treatment itself involves the use of lasers to melt fat cells, followed by the use of special cannulas to remove these liquefied cells. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the treated area.


Results of laser liposuction typically become visible within several weeks to months as the body recovers. Fat deposits are reduced, and body contours are improved.


After the treatment, patients need to follow the doctor's instructions for recovery and skincare. This includes wearing compression garments, avoiding physical exertion, and monitoring for any signs of infection or complications.


What is laser liposuction?

Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to liquefy and remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body.

How does laser liposuction work?

Laser liposuction involves the insertion of a thin tube (cannula) equipped with a laser fiber into the targeted area. The laser energy melts the fat cells, making them easier to remove through suction.

Who is a good candidate for laser liposuction?

Good candidates for laser liposuction are individuals who have localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to have good overall health and realistic expectations for the procedure.

Is laser liposuction painful?

Laser liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, so patients typically do not experience pain during the procedure. Afterward, some mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising may occur, but these are generally manageable.

How long does it take to recover from laser liposuction?

Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week, but it may take several weeks for swelling to fully subside.

Are the results of laser liposuction permanent?

The results of laser liposuction are generally long-lasting, provided that the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise. However, weight gain after the procedure can affect the overall body shape.

Can laser liposuction be performed on multiple areas at once?

Laser liposuction can be performed on multiple areas during the same session, depending on the patient's overall health and the surgeon's assessment. This allows for more comprehensive body contouring.

Are there any risks or complications associated with laser liposuction?

Like any surgical procedure, laser liposuction carries certain risks, including infection, bleeding, and irregularities in skin texture. It is important to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon to minimize these risks.

Will there be noticeable scarring after laser liposuction?

Laser liposuction incisions are small, and the use of laser technology helps minimize scarring. However, individual healing varies, and there may be some minor scarring, which tends to fade over time.

Can laser liposuction tighten sagging skin?

Laser liposuction can stimulate collagen production, leading to some degree of skin tightening. However, for significant skin tightening, additional procedures such as a body lift or skin tightening treatments may be recommended.
