Contour Your Body with Laser Liposuction

Laser LiposuctionIf you lead a healthy lifestyle, it might be frustrating to still deal with unwanted fat deposits.  It seems as though no matter how many gym sessions you log or clean meals you eat, there’s just no way that stomach, arm, or chest fat is going to budge.

Does that sound familiar to you?  If that’s the case, then it’s time to discover the body-contouring powers of laser liposuction at Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, Maryland.

What is Laser Liposuction?

If you’ve never heard of laser liposuction before, then it’s time to introduce yourself to a treatment that will help you remove those unwanted fat deposits – for good.

At first glance, laser liposuction follows the same rule of thumb as traditional liposuction: an incision is made into the fat deposit, a cannula tube is inserted through the incision, and the fat is removed.  However, the similarities end there.

A laser liposuction treatment only requires a small incision; in fact, it’s so small, you can be treated with local anesthesia, rather than general anesthesia.  A small cannula tube is inserted into the treatment area.  Rather than using force to break up the fat – which can cause intense bruising and swelling – laser energy is transmitted through the cannula and liquefies the fat.  The fat is then drained through the cannula, or the patient can opt to have the fat removed over time via the body’s natural waste removal processes.

Because there’s less force needed to break up and remove the fat, there’s minimal bruising and swelling. As a result, the recovery time for laser liposuction is much shorter, so you can get back to enjoy your summer faster.

Is Laser Liposuction Right for Me?

Wondering if laser liposuction is the best option for you?

The most ideal candidates are those who are about 25 pounds away from their ideal body weight.  This is because laser liposuction is a body contouring treatment, not a viable avenue for weight loss.  Laser liposuction can best treat areas of the body with unwanted fat, including the neck, arms, chest, stomach, back, and knees.
