If you have decided that you want to go the route of laser weight loss through laser liposuction then you are not alone. Hundreds of women have had successful laser liposuction procedures in the last year alone. Many doctors, especially plastic surgeons, are now offering laser lipo to their patients as a way of reducing risks from traditional liposuction.
If you want to undergo laser liposuction, ask your doctor about laser liposuction risks and how they may affect your recovery and the results you want to achieve. Unlike traditional liposuction when fluid is introduced to the areas to be treated, with laser lipo, wavelengths of light is introduced to the cells so that fat is melted. Among the risks doctors advise patients is burning and scarring. But this is rare as the wavelengths of light can be adjusted and don’t go beyond a certain number.
Among other forms of liposuction, laser lipo is the most minimally invasive. There is very little risk of infection as micro probes are used. The fat is melted so it’s easier to suction or vacuum out. This means that there’s less trauma to the surrounding tissues. So laser liposuction risks of bruising is greatly reduced.
Go to a plastic surgeon who has experience using laser liposuction with his patients. Ask the questions before deciding if this is what you really want.
