What are the long term effects of laser liposuction? As I age will any effects of laser lipo become more apparent?

Laser Lipo Long Term.

The effects of laser lipo like skin tightening will actually go on for months to a year.  Unfortunately, a year later your body has continued to age.  We can help turn the clock back, but we cannot freeze it!  This is where a healthy lifestyle like a good diet, exercise, not smoking, etc., help to keep your laser lipo results.

I find that ultrasound is way more effective than laser.  Long term there are no systemic side effects from this type of liposuction.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Without photos it I cannot give you what your post result may or may not look like. Lipo does not have any side effects long term other than a possible build up of scar tissue without the correct post procedure aftercare. Also depending on your age and skin tone the elasticity of your skin may need a tummy tuck if laser liposuction alone cannot give you enough tightening postop for optimal results. Please consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is experienced in laser liposuction. Best, Dr. Berger
