Laser-Liposuction (ProLipo PLUS)

NEW and an Alternative to Liposuction, for body contouring and skin tightening. Laser Liposuction is a procedure for ablating, melting and removing unwanted fat without the risk or downtime associated with traditional liposuction. Laser Liposuction is done in the office with a local anesthetic; a deep sedation is not required. Laser energy is directed to specific areas of body fat, liquefying the fat cells while contouring the body. The targeted body fat is removed and the result is a firm, more attractive body contour. The incision Dr. Vargas uses is so small, only 1-3 stitches are used for closure at the end of the procedure. Recovery is faster with significantly shorter down time. Patients typically return to work and normal activities within a few days.

Laser Liposuction is ideal for eliminating fat from specific regions of the body. Popular areas of the body are: chin, neck, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, upper thighs. A prior in depth consultation in our Kansas City office is required.
