There are many different liposuction or fat reducing procedures available to contour and shape your face and body. One of the options available at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills is laser liposuction. Dr. John Anastasatos, our board certified plastic surgeon, offers laser liposuction for patients who want to quickly reduce fatty areas with limited discomfort or downtime.
With laser liposuction, a fatty area that is resistant to shrinking through diet and exercise can be removed in about one hour per area. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. A small incision is made at the target area, and a laser instrument is inserted to deliver light energy to liquify the fat. Once the laser treatment is performed, a cannula is inserted to remove the liquified fat from under the skin.
Benefits of Laser Liposuction
Laser liposuction can have a few benefits over other types of spot liposuction. The procedure is virtually painless with very little bruising or downtime after the treatment. Unlike CoolSculpting, the fat is removed immediately, and results are visible within a week as the swelling dissipates. The laser effect can also help improve the skin quality for a smoother appearance, as this can be beneficial for patients with slight skin laxity in the area. Laser liposuction only requires one session, permanently removing small fat deposits from a specific area.
Laser liposuction can be performed on most areas of the body, including the under the chin, breasts, abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks or knees. The procedure is designed to remove small pockets of fat quickly and safely. Larger fat reduction through surgery can be completed with tumescent liposuction.
