Laser Lipo

How Does Laser Lipolysis Work?

A non-invasive method of body contouring is laser lipolysis. It eliminates minute fat accumulation. This method permanently removes fat cells from your body, similar to surgical liposuction. However, laser lipolysis recovery is quicker and simpler, and the pain is significantly reduced. It also carries a lesser chance of subsequent loose skin.

Traditional liposuction, which is regarded as significant surgery and calls for general anaesthesia, is different from laser lipolysis (the patient is put into a sleep during the procedure). In surgical lipo, the surgeon uses a tube to break up fat cells and suck them out of the body by inserting tools into a layer of fat. It may take months for recovery. 

How is laser lipo done?

Laser lipolysis is a non-invasive technique for body reshaping. It gets rid of little fat buildup. Like surgical liposuction, this technique permanently removes fat cells from your body. However, recuperation with laser lipolysis is quicker and easier, and the pain is greatly diminished. Additionally, there is a lower possibility of subsequent loose skin.

Laser lipolysis differs from traditional liposuction, which is considered major surgery and requires general anaesthesia (the patient is put into a sleep during the procedure). In surgical lipo, the surgeon inserts tools into a layer of fat to break up fat cells and suction them out of the body using a tube. The recuperation process could take months.

Recovery is extremely simple. Though you could experience some discomfort or redness at the treatment site, the majority of people can resume normal activity the following day.

Plastic doctors advise laser lipo for the removal of fat from particular places, such as:




Inner and outer thighs

What Is Liposuction With Laser Assistance?

In contrast to laser lipo, there is laser-assisted liposuction. It combines surgical liposuction techniques with the use of a laser to eliminate fat cells. Small incisions must be made, and instruments must be inserted under your skin, as part of the surgery. Although recuperation is significantly simpler, it is less invasive than regular liposuction.

You will be awake throughout the process, but your doctor will apply a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment location. Your doctor will create a tiny incision when the skin has become numb and implant a laser into the fat beneath your skin. The final step will cause the fat to liquefy and the fat cells to burst.

Your doctor will use a little tube (cannula) to suck the fat out of your body as it becomes liquefied. In contrast to conventional liposuction, the surrounding tissue sustains little harm. Additionally, there is considerably less chance of bruising or edoema following the operation.

After the treatment, you can have some discomfort for a few days. To minimise swelling, your doctor could advise putting on a compression garment. To avoid infection, you must take care of your incisions. After laser-assisted liposuction, most patients are able to return to their normal activities in one to two days.Some changes will be apparent right away. Over the following few weeks, the outcomes will keep getting better.

What Advantages Does Laser Lipolysis Offer?

Results with laser lipo are comparable to those from conventional liposuction. Because of its less invasive techniques, the operation leaves you with an easier recovery. Although there are certain hazards associated with laser lipo, signs like redness and swelling are not severe.

Additionally, there is a little chance of infection developing where incisions were done during laser-assisted lipo. Experts have found that following laser lipolysis and laser-assisted liposuction, the skin becomes tighter. Lasers encourage the formation of collagen. The skin surrounding the fat deposits may remain loose or sagging after standard liposuction.
