How does the liposculpture procedure work?
Laser Liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure using only local anesthesia (tumescent) and very small cannulas (tubes) gently inserted under the skin. The cannula is moved to and fro and suctions out unwanted fat cells. This can be combined with a laser in order to tighten the skin. Micro liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed entirely under local anesthesia. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, the procedure is very safe. All procedures at Advanced Dermatology Pocono Medical Care are performed in our on-site office based procedure rooms.
Who is a good candidate for liposculpture (liposuction)?
If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you’re a candidate for liposuction and Laserlypolysis. Ideal candidates are in good health, of normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results.
What body regions can be treated with Liposculpture?
Liposculpture can be used to treat a wide range of areas including: face, chin, neck, breasts, chest, back, abdomen, love handles, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees and more.
How many treatments will I need?
Multiple areas can be treated in a session. If many areas are being treated, it may be adviseable to split the treatments up over more than one day. The treatment session may last from two to six hours depending on how many areas are treated.
What do I have to do after the treatment?
After the treatment you will need to wear a compression garment for several days to several weeks, depending on the body area being treated. Rest is recommended after the procedure and activity may be resumed gradually. Refrain from hot tubs or strenuous exercise for 2 weeks.
Does Liposuction treat cellulite?
The procedure may improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree, especially if combined with laserlipolysis such as our ProLipo or SmartLipo treatments..
Can I expect to see results?
Results can be seen as soon as a week with continued improvement over 6 - 12 months.
Does laser liposuction result in a PERMANENT decrease in the number of fat cells in the area treated?
Yes! Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, the fat cells expand. The Liposculpture procedure permanently removes the fat cells. Should you gain weight, most fat will be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
