Traditional liposuction surgery has been around for a long time, but using lasers to melt away body fat is a recent arriver to the cosmetic surgery market. It is finally allowing people not ready to go under the knife to lose weight to safely and effectively drain away their excess body fat. It is perhaps more controversial than liposuction was because it has not been throughly tested as of yet.
Though using lasers and other tools other than surgery to perform liposuction has been around for three decades, the newest technologies are still being worked with and perfected. Many techniques that tomorrow will be common place are today still in the beginning stages of development. Laser liposuction is a rapidly expanding concept that is being researched more and more to perfect all components.
You might be wondering how lasers can melt your body fat without having to actually be inside your body. Never fear: laser liposuction truly doesn’t involve invasive surgery. Instead, a minor incision is made to let the laser in. Once the body fat in question has been melted to an oily residue, it is sucked straight out of the body by the doctor.
Imagine being able to get lipo without any scarring left over afterwards! The cut a laser liposuction doctor makes is less than two millimeters wide most of the time. They just need enough room to slip a tiny tube with a laser attached inside your body right below your skin. The laser offers light as well as heat to help melt the targeted body fat.
In particular areas of the body, the suction step isn’t needed. Sometimes, if the amount of melted body fat is small, the body can simply reabsorb it. The liver will then process and excrete the liquefied body fat from the minor laser surgery.
Another benefit of laser usage in this case is that it makes the body produce collagen, the protein that makes skin strong, supple and resilient. This means that after the body fat has been melted and withdrawn from your body, your skin will react by naturally becoming tighter and more attractive.
Though this procedure doesn’t pin you down with recovery time, it is still being tested for safety and effectiveness. Not much is known about what effect the presence of such a high powered laser could have on cells other than those that make up body fat.
Laser liposuction can be effectively used on many different body parts. Wherever you have fat that simply won’t leave, a doctor can treat with laser liposuction so you can have firmer skin and a slimmer figure. Laser liposuction can be performed on your face, including your chin, cheeks and neck but it can also address body fat on your back, thighs, groin, hips, knees, buttocks and arms.
