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 leads to extensive downtime and increases the risk to the patient.
However, newer techniques allow fat removal and body contouring procedure to be performed under minimally invasive techniques with tumescent anesthesia. This technique involves the use of dilute local anesthesia administration to areas to be treated. As a result, patients have less downtime, bruising and post-operative complaints. This technique also allows for more smooth contours due to the patient mobility during the procedure.
The lasers in minimally invasive fat removal involves Laser liposuction (also called “laser lipolysis”). Laser Liposuction combines minimally invasive fat removal techniques with laser tightening and fat destruction. During laser liposuction, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the treatment area and delivers a low-wave laser energy. The laser energy creates controlled heating of the fatty and surrounding tissue leading to increased tissue tightening and increase 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 trim, taught skin.

Before & After
Laser Liposuction - Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take to Perform Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction usually takes less than an hour to perform for each treated area.
What Is Recovery Like After Laser Liposuction?
Because laser liposuction is minimally invasive, you will only need a day or two of downtime. You may experience mild discomfort and swelling, but these side effects usually subside within a week or two.
Is Laser Liposuction Painful?
Patients generally experience little to no pain at all during the procedure. For optimal comfort, the treated area will be numbed prior to the procedure.
Are the Results from Laser Liposuction Permanent?
Yes; the fat cells that are removed during a laser liposuction treatment are permanently gone. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight, then fat can return to the treated areas. When paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can expect the results of your laser liposuction to last long term.
When Will I See Results from Laser Liposuction?
In most cases, you will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance after treatment. However, sometimes swelling can temporarily obscure your results. Most of the initial swelling subsides within two or three weeks, and the area will continue to tighten and improve over the next few months.
