How is a Laser Liposculpting procedure performed?

The Laser Liposculpting cosmetic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique. It is most useful in removing small but stubborn deposits of fat from various parts of the body. This is an effective body contouring procedure which is also being sought by men as well. The first part involves administering local anaesthesia in the areas to be operated. The cosmetic surgeon will then inject the area with a special saline solution. This solution is designed to prevent bleeding and pain in the region.

The cosmetic surgeon will then use a high-energy and precise laser beam to target the underlying fat deposits. Intense heat is generated in the fat cells which then become liquefied. Next, the surgeon will make very small (2-4 mm) incisions and use this to insert the cannula. The cannula is a small blunt-tipped suction tube. The cosmetic surgeon will steadily insert the cannula into the incisions and use vacuum power to remove the liquefied fat easily.

What is recovery life after a Laser Liposculpting procedure?

Recovery after the minimally invasive cosmetic surgical technique is comparatively faster. You will experience slight numbness or swelling for the first few days after the procedure. However, the swelling goes away within the first couple of weeks. Patients have reportedly been able to recover completely within the first two months and the results have been successful when the patients have maintained a healthy weight range.
