Is Laser Liposuction becoming the preferred choice of cosmetic surgery?

Of late, Laser liposuction has gained prominence as an effective body contouring procedure. This is mainly due to the technology and the ease of use. When diet and exercise fails, and the desire to look fit and beautiful becomes overwhelming, which is increasingly the case, cosmetic surgeries such as these take the forefront. Of these laser liposuction surgery is becoming the prefered standard although it has its own share of problems. But first, a quick look at what laser liposuction is all about.   

 

 

Laser Liposuction – how it works

Laser liposuction puts a very small laser beneath the skin to liquefy fat. After it has been liquefied, fat is removed with a very small tube — one that is smaller than in traditional liposuction. This results in a smaller incision and in less bruising.

In addition, the laser has an additional benefit of tightening the skin. This occurs through heat and reduces loose skin associated with traditional liposuction procedures.

Since the tube used in laser liposuction is smaller, this procedure is often used to remove fat from difficult to reach places such as the underarms or neck. This type of precedure is useful to people who are interested in resculpting fat that doesn’t go away with diet and exercise….More at Laser Liposuction Sacramento Treatments | Learn How It Works

 

 

Laser liposuction cost:

Although it is an easy procedure, it is also known to be expensive. As an approximation, laser liposuction can put you back by $2,000 and upwards for just one area. However, this also depends on the area and the amount of fat deposits. Also noteworthy is the fact that this  treatment is effective on smaller areas having stubborn fat that do not react favourably to exercise and diet. From a fitment perspective, this also means that other types of liposuction treatment may be necesary for larger areas. Laser liposuction can be performed around the upper arms, inner thighs, knees, ankles and calves.
