Traditional methods of liposuction cause tissue trauma that can require weeks of downtime. Dr. Craig Schwartz prefers minimally invasive liposuction. These techniques use energy to break down fat cells, making them easy to remove. This protects the surrounding tissues from damage for a fast recovery time.
What is Liposuction?
In the past, liposuction meant inserting a cannula, manually breaking up the fat, and then removing it with powerful suction. As liposuction technology has improved, options like laser liposuction have become available. Using gentle laser energy to break down fat cells for easy removal prevents trauma to the surrounding tissues. Because it uses a small laser fiber, laser liposuction can work in smaller and more delicate areas than standard liposuction methods. Dr. Schwartz favors this method because laser energy produces more skin tightening than other techniques.
