Risks and effectiveness of laser lipo
Laser Lipo is a liposuction technique where a laser is used to melt the fat and tighten the skin in combination with liposuction. It does require small incisions through which the laser probe and suction cannula are inserted under the skin and therefore it is considered minimally invasive. In our office we treat all areas under local anesthesia and our patients are awake during the procedure.The results and risks are dependent on the doctor performing the procedure. In the hands of a knowledgeable physician it is a very effective and safe procedure, so make sure you get treated by experienced doctor. The main risks include infection, skin or tissue irregularities, hematoma (blood collection under the skin) and inadequate fat removal. Good luck.
Laser liposuction is an effective alternative to traditional lipo, but it is NOT non-invasive. It is minimally invasive, using small incisions to insert a cannula which suctions out the fat. Laser liposuction has a much shorter recovery time than traditional lipo, and much less risk. Schedule a consultation with a surgeon for a more thorough explanation of you could benefit from laser liposuction instead of traditional lipo.
