While proper exercise and diet regimen is important to lose excess weight, some stubborn fat deposits are unresponsive to these means. When all these methods fail to produce results, people often resort to surgical method to get rid of stubborn fat. Liposuction is a popular surgical procedure that effectively removes excess fat on localized areas. Various techniques are available for liposuction and the modern techniques are minimal invasive and much beneficial as compared to traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction that causes minimal pain and requires less time for recovery is one of them.
What is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction is actually the procedure that involves use of laser to melt the deposits of fat tissue under the skin and the melted fat is then removed by suctioning using extremely tiny cannulas. It can be performed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The result of the procedure is sculpted and contoured body. It is perfect option for removal of localized fat deposits that do not respond to exercise and diet. It can’t be used as the substitute for weight loss but gives highly beneficial results, if maintained by proper diet and exercise regimen, as body contouring procedure.
What is difference between laser liposuction and traditional liposuction?
In laser liposuction, fat is liquefied prior to removal causing less damage and discomfort than traditional liposuction. It requires small incisions and causes fewer side effects like swelling, bleeding and bruising. Less damage and fewer side effects lead to quicker recovery.
Unlike traditional liposuction, in addition to removal of fat, laser stimulates the production of collagen and offers an additional advantage of tightening or plumping up the skin. So, it is perfect option for those who have excess stubborn fat as well as skin laxity.
Laser liposuction can effectively address those areas of body that traditional liposuction may not. It effectively removes fat from areas having fibrous tissues also and this is the reason it is perfect treatment for male enlarged breasts (gynecomastia). Liposuction is an effective alternate for surgical removal of ipomeas also.
