Do you have stubborn fat in your abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, or other areas of your body that won’t seem to go away with diet and exercise? If so, laser liposuction may be the ideal solution. It comes with less downtime than traditional liposuction and can leave you feeling toned and beautiful without causing a major disruption to your life. Let’s dive deeper into what laser liposuction is and how you may benefit from it.
How Laser Liposuction Works
Dr. Craig Schwartz uses the FDA-approved ProLipo(™) laser lipo system, which is less invasive than traditional liposuction, offering a faster recovery with less pain, swelling or bruising. Pro Lipo laser liposuction uses laser thermal energy to liquefy fat cells, which are then gently suctioned away. Laser Lipo can be performed under local tumescent anesthesia, reducing the risks of complications that are typically associated with traditional liposuction.
Benefits of Laser Liposuction
In addition to removing unwanted fat, Pro Lipo creates a thermal effect, which causes the skin to contract so that it becomes firmer and tighter, leaving you with beautiful results, avoiding the lax or loose skin typically associated with traditional liposuction. After a laser liposuction treatment, you can return to work within a day or two. However, if your job requires vigorous physical activity, you may require more time off. In addition to a fairly short recovery time, it can provide smoother results than traditional liposuction, and it can remove fat in areas of the body that traditional liposuction simply cannot, such as the area above the knees, under the chin, and around the ankles. Laser lipo offers the same contouring and visual improvement of traditional liposuction, but with greater precision, leaving nerves and blood vessels intact.

Good Candidates for Laser Liposuction
If you have stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for laser liposuction. Laser liposuction may also be a good fit if you lead a busy lifestyle and are searching for a fat reduction procedure that comes with minimal downtime and relatively quick noticeable results.
It’s essential to note that laser liposuction is not a weight loss treatment and is therefore only an option if you are within 10-25 pounds of your ideal body weight Scheduling a consultation is a great way to determine whether or not laser liposuction is a good fit for you.
