Liposuction is one of the most common surgical procedures performed throughout the world each year. There was a time when surgical liposuction was the only option, but now there are a number of laser technologies being used to eliminate undesirable fat, and contour the body. But how is laser liposuction different from surgical liposuction.
Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure that targets areas of fat deposits, which are often resistant to diet and exercise. During the procedure the fatty tissue is removed.
Liposuction can be done almost anywhere on the body including the abdomen, thighs, love handles, arms, back, chin, and neck.
Laser Liposuction vs Surgical Liposuction
One of the major differences between laser lipo and surgical lipo, relates to the treatment of the fatty deposits beneath the skin.
With traditional liposuction, incisions are made through which a cannula or small tube is inserted. The cannula is moved back and forth in order to break up the fat, which is then suctioned out.
With laser lipo, the laser fibre is inserted under the skin through tiny incisions. The laser melts the fatty deposits, and the liquid is then suctioned from the body.
At Medicetics Skin Clinic, London, we offer our clients another body contouring option known as CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting reduces fat by freezing the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective procedure that requires no anaesthesia or downtime, and it leaves no scars. It is a virtually painless treatment that can be done in one hour.
