Whether you want to remove fat from your thighs, abdomen or hips, laser lipo is a non-invasive procedure that targets the fat cells. After the procedure, you will experience minimal swelling and bruising. However, most surgeons recommend taking a few days off from strenuous activities.

During the laser lipo treatments, the surgeon makes a small incision and inserts a cannula with a laser inside. The laser heats the fat cells, which eventually break down. The fat is then suctioned out. The liquefied fat is then easier to drain and the surrounding tissue is less traumatized.
Most laser lipo treatment results are seen within four to six weeks after the procedure. After that, you can begin to return to your daily life. Some patients may have to wear a compression garment for one to two weeks to help with swelling and to prevent skin laxity.
The best candidates for a laser lipo treatment are people who are within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight and have small areas of stubborn fat. They should also have good skin tone and be physically active.
During the treatment, the doctor will first mark the areas to be treated. Then, the doctor will insert the cannula into the incision and use the laser to melt the fat. Once the procedure is complete, the doctor will close the incision.
There are several options for laser lipo treatments. Some of the most popular areas include the thighs, hips, and neck. In addition, laser lipo can be used on the back of the knees and on the flanks. The amount of fat that is removed during the procedure varies from patient to patient. The surgeon will judge how much fat is safe for a particular patient’s type of body.
