What is Laser Lipolysis?
Laser Lipolysis is a minimally invasive way to permanently remove fat while promoting skin tightening in treated areas. We now offer Laser Lipolysis featuring the latest technology, the ProLipo PLUS™ from Sciton. This advanced, laser-assisted liposuction procedure is designed for patients who want finessed body sculpting in areas where it is difficult to lose fat, such as the love handles, saddlebags, abdomen, thighs, arms, chin, and hips. The ProLipo PLUS™ features fine instruments that allow for more detailed body sculpting. This technology is particularly good for the treatment of excess fat in the chin and neck region.
Patients come to Pittsburgh Liposuction Specialty Clinic from all over the nation because of our unique approach to liposuction and fat grafting. We would like to invite you to browse through our website and educate yourself about what we offer and then make an appointment with us for an initial consultation. This initial consult is free and it will give you an opportunity to speak face-to-face with a leader in the field of liposuction.
How does laser Lipolysis work?
A tiny incision is made in the skin, and a laser is introduced through a small tube called a cannula. The laser delivers energy to targeted fat cells. At the same time the fat is melting away, the heat from laser promotes skin tightening in surrounding areas. Unlike traditional liposuction, with Laser Lipolysis, there is no need for general anesthesia, and bruising, swelling and downtime are minimized.
What areas can be treated with laser Lipolysis?
Laser Lipolysis is ideal for small pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, as well as for areas that are difficult to treat with traditional liposuction. Common treatment areas include the thighs, upper abdomen, belly, arms, chin, hips and more.
Can Laser Lipolysis be done in combination with other procedures?
Yes! Laser Lipolysis not only melts the fat, allowing it to removed, but also tightens the skin to leave the patient with a slim, tighter and smoother profile. Laser Lipolysis can be done alone, or in combination with WaterLipo® and UpLift™ for more dramatic results.
What if I do not want to be totally awake during my procedure?
We do offer our patients the option to do the procedure under “Twilight” or a light form of anesthesia. Please let us know if this is something that you wish to discuss.
