Laser liposuction may be suitable for you if you have small stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.
It is also used for touch-ups post liposuction and for corrections from previous liposuction procedures.
Sometimes we combine laser liposuction with other types of liposuction procedures to enhance results. ProLipo is a very safe and effective minimally invasive procedure for reducing stubborn areas of fat and for internal skin tightening.
ProLipo can be used to treat the following:
- Love handles
- Jawline (jowls)
- Double chin
- Upper arms (“bat wings”)
- Outer thighs (“saddle bags”)
- Male breast reduction (gynocomastia)
- Abdomen (“muffin top”)
- Sculpting abdomen (“6-pack abs”)
ProLipo laser treatment provides the following advantages:
- Tightens tissue/skin
- Permanently removes fat cells
- Improves body shape and contour
What to Expect
ProLipo treatments are a 60 minute in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. Using the ProLipo device, a small tube (or cannula) containing the laser fiber is placed under the skin using a very small incision. The cannula passes throughout the treatment area delivering laser energy to the fat cells.
The cells rupture and are drained or suctioned away. The laser also tightens the skin internally. There is a day or two of social downtime post procedure. Most patients feel sore post treatment, much like after a strenuous workout. Allow two weeks for initial result, and up to three months for the final result.
