Which Laser Treatment is Best for Fat Reduction?

If you’re dealing with stubborn pockets of fat in your abdomen, thighs, hips, and other parts of your body, you’re not alone. This is a common concern that stems from factors like aging and pregnancy and many people are in your same shoes. 

The good news is laser liposuction can help. Laser liposuction is a great fat reduction treatment and can help you achieve a toned figure and resolve fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Let’s dive deeper into what laser liposuction is and how it works.

What to Expect From Laser Liposuction

At Premier Vein, Dr. Craig Schwartz uses the FDA-approved Pro-Lipo system to perform laser lipo. Laser liposuction uses thermal energy to liquefy fat cells and suction them away. It offers incredible precision and leaves your nerves and vessels intact. This treatment is usually performed under local tumescent, rather than general anesthesia. 

Laser liposuction is less invasive than traditional liposuction and comes with minimal pain, swelling, or bruising. If you opt for laser lipo, you’ll also enjoy a faster recovery period and be able to resume your daily activities shortly. 

You’ll likely be able to return to work within a few days if you have a desk job. In the event your job involves serious intense physical activity, you may need to take a bit more time. Regardless, you’ll notice smoother, faster results with less downtime than traditional liposuction.

Good Candidates for Laser Liposuction

You may benefit from laser liposuction if you’re bothered by stubborn pockets of fat that won’t seem to disappear despite your healthy diet and regular exercise routine. Dr. Schwartz may suggest it if you’d like to target smaller pockets on body parts like your abs or arms.  It’s ideal if you work, have childcare duties, or lead a busy lifestyle and would like to treat your fat without a great deal of downtime.

If your goal is to lose weight, you are not a good candidate for laser liposuction. This is not a weight loss treatment and only available if you’re within 10 to 25 pounds of a healthy body weight. During a consultation, Dr. Schwartz can inform you of whether laser lipo makes sense for your unique situation.
