What Is Laser Lipo? Is It Right for Me?
Love handles? Send them packing. Laser lipo is a type of liposuction that permanently removes fat with little downtime. And fat removal isn’t its only benefit; it can also tighten skin in the treatment area. If you have unwanted fat (and come on, doesn’t everyone?), come see us at Total Body and find out if laser lipo is right for you.
What Is Laser Lipo?
We provide minimally invasive, laser-assisted liposuction using Lipotherme™. The special Lipotherme laser uses heat to liquefy your fat cells. Unlike traditional liposuction, which requires several days of downtime, you can return to many activities the next day after Lipotherme. It isn’t a weight loss technique, but rather, a way to remove stubborn fat, the kind that sticks around in spite of diet and exercise. If you are close to your target weight, but have excess fat in problem areas, this treatment might be right for you.
Is Laser Lipo Worth the Cost?
Is laser lipo worth the cost? We certainly think so! And so do many others. Lipotherm has a 100% “Worth It” rating on Real Self and many of our satisfied patients agree. Lipotherm is a safe and effective way to remove fat in areas like the abdomen, under the chin, thighs, etc.
Think about it… laser lipo is similar in price to traditional liposuction, with the added benefit of skin tightening. Plus, you don’t have to use up those vacation days up while you recover. Less fat without the downtime.
Is Laser Lipo Painful?
During treatment, you won’t feel any pain. Only one small incision is needed (for each treatment area) and a numbing agent is used. The laser liquefies the fat which is then removed. Then, we close the incision.
After treatment you may experience a bit of bruising, swelling or soreness, but this typically resolves quickly. In general, patients find the recovery after laser lipo is much less painful than recovery from traditional liposuction. Since the fat is liquefied before it is removed, the removal process is much easier on your body.
Are the Results Permanent?
Your body does not regenerate fat cells. Once they are gone, they are gone for good. Laser lipo permanently removes fat cells. This doesn’t mean that you can’t gain weight, but it does mean that you won’t develop localized fat pockets in the treatment location again.
Don’t forget, we also offer financing through Prosper Healthcare Lending, so that you can receive treatment while making payments. It’s a great way to make your procedure more affordable!
