For years, liposuction has been used as a way to remove unwanted pockets of fat for patients the world over. For those who want to get rid of excess weight on their bodies without the long recovery period after surgery, laser liposuction- also known as laser-assisted liposuction- provides an effective, less-invasive alternative.

What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is said to increase the safety standards of traditional liposuction procedures while decreasing the amount of recovery time the patient has to endure. Because laser liposuction is less invasive than traditional liposuction, patients can have the procedure done without it resulting in a significant impact on their work schedule and daily routine.
During laser liposuction surgery, lasers are used to liquefy the fat for easier removal. This is unlike traditional liposuction, which requires the use of an instrument known as a cannula to break up the fatty deposits prior to their removal.
Benefits of Laser Liposuction
Benefits of laser liposuction include:
- Lower risk of tissue damage compared with more traditional techniques
- Faster recovery time
- Skin tends to tighter, less loose and inelastic after the procedure
Although there are many advantages to having laser liposuction, it is important to note that the procedure is relatively new to the world of cosmetic surgery and, as with other cosmetic procedures, does carry some risks.
Patients who are considering laser liposuction should always consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who can fully explain the risks and benefits associated with the procedure. Only a skilled surgeon should perform the procedure, and patients should
avoid choosing a practitioner without proper credentials or training.
