Laser LiposuctionFor an ultra precise method of body slimming, Dr. Michalak uses laser-assisted liposuction. This technique is ideal for patients who want small areas of fat removed with reduced downtime. Using a laser equipped liposuction device, the doctor can liquefy unwanted body fat, allowing for easier removal with suction.
Is Laser Liposuction Right for You?
The best candidates for laser liposuction are healthy and within 25 lbs of their ideal body weight. Patients considering laser liposuction should also have realistic expectations about the outcome and be capable of understanding the risks involved. Video Imaging is available for a view of what your final results may look like.
Laser liposuction is best for removal of relatively small areas of persistent body fat. If your diet and exercise regimen haven’t succeeded in meeting your body slimming goals, you may want to consider a laser liposuction procedure at Cosmetic Surgery & Dermatology of Issaquah, Inc.
Liposuction can slim down areas such as:
- Love handles
- Neck and Chin
- Upper Arms
Dr. Michalak may also use laser liposuction during other cosmetic procedures to enhance results of body contouring.
How Laser Liposuction Removes Excess Fat
Laser Liposuction is a body contouring method. It is not a weight loss method, nor an advisable surgery for obese patients. The doctor makes very small incisions before a special laser-equipped liposuction cannula is inserted to remove fat with suction. Combined with the fat melting and contouring effects, the laser provides modest skin tightening through heating of the tissue.
Life After Laser Liposuction
Each individual’s recovery will vary somewhat, but many patients experience minimal discomfort with the laser liposuction technique. One benefit is the option to use local anesthesia in small volume procedures. This allows you to stay awake during the procedure and get back to your routine quicker.
