The Internet is full of stories of individuals who have had dramatic weight loss over the course of six months to a year. When people who are overweight see these articles, they get inspired to diet and to increase the amount of exercise they do. For some people, changes in diet and increasing exercise are not enough to help them get the results they need. Some reach the point where they decide that they need surgical intervention to help them lose stubborn fat deposits. Many have turned to laser lipo to help them achieve their desired results.
What is Laser Lipo?
Laser lipo is a technique that is relatively new in the world of cosmetic surgery. Proponents of laser lipo say that it has the exact same effects as traditional liposuction without requiring a patient to have an extended hospital stay.
Laser liposuction uses lasers to break up or dissolve fat deposits before fat is removed from the body. This minimizes the harsh, mechanical fat breaking and suction techniques that are used in traditional liposuction.
How Well Does Laser Lipo Work?
You will see immediate results from the procedure since fat has been removed from your body. However, liposuction is not an alternative to having a healthy diet and exercising.
If a person continues in the same lifestyle pattern that they had prior to the procedure, they will put on weight again. Additionally, as with all surgical procedures, laser lipo does run the risk of blood clots, infection, and scarring.
The Benefits of Laser Lipo
Laser lipo has many benefits over traditional liposuction. One benefit is that since lasers are used to break up fat deposits before suction is performed, there is less trauma to the body. This, in turn, means that you may have less downtime and a quicker recovery. Additionally, laser lipo produces less scarring and reduced bruising.
The Best Candidates for Laser Lipo
Laser lipo is perfect for individuals who, even though they have tried to diet and exercise, are unable to remove deposits of fat in their body. The ideal candidate is someone who is in overall good health, has good emotional health, is within 30 percent of their ideal body weight, and who has a realistic expectation of what the procedure can and cannot do.
The procedure is not recommended for individuals who do not have good skin elasticity. It is also not recommended for those who have excessive skin as a result of weight loss.
