Leg pain after Laser Lipo could be neuropraxia

Please ask your surgeon, but it is possible that your complaints are due to a neuropraxia. This occurs when the nerves beneath the skin are subjected to the diode tip laser. Nerve recovery generally depends on the level of the injury and ca be as short as 7-10 days or persist for far longer.
