Laser liposuction is one of the types of liposuction that Dr. Mark Crispin uses on our Atlanta area patients to target and remove stubborn fat deposits. It is the newest and most requested form of liposuction.
Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure. With the use of specialized lasers, like Smartlipo®, Dr. Crispin can safely and easily remove fat from unwanted areas. Lasers delivered through the skin into fatty areas rupture the fat cells under your skin. Dr. Crispin can then gently suction out the fat through tiny cannula (tubes).
Because the laser hits your skin during the procedure, it can stimulate production of elastin and collagen and result in natural tightening of your skin in the treatment area. Other benefits of laser liposuction include:
- Less bruising and liposuction recovery time
- Reduced risk of contour irregularities
- No general anesthesia required
- No noticeable scarring after the procedure
Laser liposuction is not right for every patient. Depending on your desired results and treatment area, you may be a better candidate for ultra-sound liposuction or power-assisted liposuction. Consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon is the best way to find out which liposuction procedure can give you the results you are looking for.
