Laser Liposuction, Liposculpture for Excess Fat and Bulges
You can lose as much as one gallon of fat with each liposculpture session, a procedure that removes and sculpts fat while you are awake.

How does the Laser Lipo 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 MilfordMD Surgery & Laser Center are performed in our on-site office based procedure rooms.
Who is a good candidate for Laser Liposculpture (liposuction)?
If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you’re a candidate for liposuction and Laser-lipolysis. Ideal candidates are in good health, of normal body weight and have realistic expectations for the results.
What body regions can be treated with Laser Liposculpture?
Can Laser Liposuction give me the 6-pack abs I've been working so hard to achieve?
Yes, for those of you who exercise regularly but just can't seem to see the results you are looking for, Laser Liposuction can remove the layer of the excess fat under the skin that prevents those muscles from being seen.
How many treatments will I need?
Multiple areas can be treated in a session. If many areas are being treated, it may be advisable 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 Laser Liposuction treat cellulite?
The procedure may improve the body’s shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree, especially if combined with laser-lipolysis such as our ProLipo or Smartlipo treatments.
When can I expect to see results?
Results can be seen as soon as a week with continued improvement over 6 - 12 months.
