Laser liposuction (also known as laser body contouring) is an incredibly popular procedure and a specialty at Vargas Face and Skin Center. Laser lipo is a procedure where laser technology allows us to rapidly dissolve localized pockets of fat and tighten the surrounding skin from the inside. The technique can significantly improve your appearance with the utmost safety, comfort and efficiency.
As one of America's fastest growing procedures, the laser lipo process involves melting unwanted areas of fat through the use of a tiny cannula and a high-tech laser. The result is a tighter, slimmer appearance. Only 1 to 2 sutures are required after the procedure is complete. Tiny areas of incision heal within days.
Laser lipo is semi-permanent and can be performed on almost any area of the body. The procedure is done in the Vargas Laser Suite and does not require the use of a general anesthetic. Unlike some cosmetic surgery procedures, laser lipo patients return home the same day and can resume normal activities shortly thereafter.
Dr. Vargas recommends SkinTyte treatments after laser lipo sessions to tighten the skin on the outside as well.
Areas of the body that qualify for laser lipo treatment:
- Beneath the chin
- Around the abdomen
- Love handles and saddle bags
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
What to know about laser lipo:
If you're considering a cosmetic surgery procedure that delivers immediately-visible results - especially when diet and exercise have failed to reduce areas of fat - laser lipo is an excellent choice. Additionally, laser lipo requires no general anesthesia and has minimal downtime.
Your in-depth laser liposuction consultation with Dr. Vargas will involve an exam of the areas that would benefit from the procedure. Measurements, photos and notes may be taken at this time. Although the decision to have a laser lipo procedure is highly personal, it should be known that Dr. Vargas considers her work in body contouring to be one of the safest, most effective and comfortable procedures at Vargas Face and Skin.
