1. Laser Lipo Is Less Invasive

The incision that is required to perform laser liposuction is less than one centimeter in length. This limits blood loss during the surgery and results in a minimal amount of scarring. The reason for the small incision is that a smaller cannula (the instrument used to suck the fat from the body) is used. A smaller cannula results in less bruising and faster recovery.

2. It Results In Less Trauma To The Surrounding Tissue

One of the main benefits of combining laser technology with liposuction is that the fat is easier to remove from the body. Here’s how it works: The laser is designed to melt the targeted fat tissue without affecting the surrounding tissues. Then, when it comes time to suck the fat out, the fat cells are less attached to the surrounding skin, making the process far less traumatic to the skin and other tissue.

3. It Can Decrease The Amount Of Skin Sag That Occurs

Healthline News reports that laser lipolysis (laser liposuction) increases the amount of collagen in the skin, tightening it as the fat is removed. In some cases, this can prevent the need to combine liposuction with a tummy tuck and leave your body looking like the fat was never there.

This is an incredible advantage given that people’s number-one concern about liposuction is that it causes skin sag. But it is important to note that laser liposuction is not designed to create large amounts of fat loss.

If you have any questions about laser liposuction, contact Dr. Rassael.  He is up to date on the newest research, and he offers safe treatments with overwhelmingly positive results.
