By virtue of the fact that you are young, you stand to have an excellent result from liposuction or laser lipolysis as long as you adhere to a good diet, exercise, and have realistic surgical expectations. I have been very impressed with the laser lipolysis techniques and currently use the Slim Lipo machine. The bruising and downtime are significantly reduced when compared to traditional liposuction and I feel that results have not been compromised. The addition of the second wavelength for skin tightening has a theoretical advantage over traditional liposuction and in my practice there are definitely differences in the amount of skin tightening seen after fat removal. Damage to collagen will certainly lead to scarring and skin tightening which is seen in traditional liposuction.
As a surgeon, I am not the first to incorporate non-surgical or less invasive techniques into my practice, but, in the case of laser lipolysis, this may be the technique that finally delivers as promised.
