Laser Liposuction – New Orleans

Spot reducing: it’s something we all know isn’t possible, but it’s still frustrating when your diet and exercise efforts prove ineffective. Over time, exercise-resistant fat tends to develop on areas like the belly, hips, thighs, and neck – and even isolated workouts don’t seem to make a difference for these stubborn bulges.

Traditional liposuction has been the go-to procedure for eliminating localized areas of fat, but not everyone wants to deal with the downtime associated with invasive procedures. Men and women seeking body contouring now have a minimally invasive alternative: laser liposuction.

With laser liposuction, spot reduction is possible. This minimally invasive procedure will allow you to get the figure you deserve without a lengthy recovery period.

Laser Liposuction: How It Works

Traditional liposuction performed under general anesthesia is associated with increased post-operative pain, increased bruising, and more irregularity. Traditional liposuction also leads to extensive downtime and increases the overall risks to the patient.

Newer, minimally invasive techniques allow fat removal and body contouring procedures to be performed under tumescent anesthesia. This approach involves the use of diluted local anesthesia administration to the treatment areas. As a result, patients have less downtime, bruising and post-operative complaints. This technique also allows for smoother contours due to the patient mobility during the procedure.

Laser liposuction (also called “laser lipolysis”) combines minimally invasive fat removal techniques with laser tightening and fat destruction. During the procedure, a thin fiber is inserted into the treatment area and delivers low-wave laser energy. The laser energy creates controlled heating of the fatty and surrounding tissue, leading to increased tissue tightening and fat destruction.

This efficient method of liposuction results in limited recovery times, and it exposes the patient to far fewer risks when compared to traditional liposuction. It also stimulates the production of collagen, which further rejuvenates the treatment area and produces trimmer, tighter skin.

Is Laser Liposuction Right for You?

Ideal candidates for laser liposuction in New Orleans include healthy men and women who are close to their ideal weight, but still struggle with exercise-resistant pockets of fat on the body. Patients should also understand that laser liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. This treatment is excellent at reducing localized pockets of fat, but it will not help you lose weight. Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle often experience the best results.

This safe, versatile treatment is most commonly used on the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves
  • Ankles

CoolSculpting: A Non-Surgical Alternative to Laser Liposuction

While laser liposuction is minimally invasive, some patients prefer an option that requires absolutely no downtime. We are proud to offer CoolSculpting for our patients in New Orleans who are seeking a non-surgical method of fat reduction. This innovative device uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells. The fat cells are gradually processed by the body, leading to slimmer contours in the treated area.

This versatile treatment can be performed in many of the same areas where laser liposuction is used, including the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, love handles, and double chin area. With no needles, no surgery, and no downtime, CoolSculpting is a great procedure for those looking to slim down without disrupting their busy lifestyle.

Before & After

Laser Lipo FAQs

Can Laser Liposuction Help With a Double Chin?

Laser liposuction in New Orleans is one of the safest ways to treat a double chin that results from fatty tissue deposits and reduced skin tension. Laser lipo removes excess fat from a localized area and improves the resilience of skin by stimulating collagen production, which makes laser liposuction the ideal treatment for a double chin. 

Will Insurance Cover Laser Liposuction?

Most health insurance covers essential procedures – operations that are medically necessary to help a patient recover from a condition which impairs their quality of life or puts their health at risk. Laser liposuction in New Orleans is not such a procedure. The goal of laser lipo is to help you look your best – whether you want more defined calves, a more prominent thigh gap, a tighter lower abdomen, or more toned upper arms, laser liposuction can help you achieve this. However, you’ll need to be ready to pay for the procedure out of pocket.

Is Recovery From Laser Liposuction Lengthy?

Recovery from laser liposuction in New Orleans is far shorter than with traditional liposuction. The procedure takes place under local, not general, anesthesia, and the method of fat destruction and removal is less intense than in liposuction. All these qualities contribute to shorter recovery times.
