All lasers are an energy source that produces heat, and the heat causes secondary retraction in all tissues, and greater tension in those that are flaccid.
In this surgery we do a conventional liposuction, extracting the fat and afterwards applying the same liposuction technique with a laser cannula (laser lipolysis) with the liposuction system, giving a new silhouette and changing the genetic mold that for years has been an obstacle in obtaining the complexion we always wanted. Obtaining secondary skin retraction and avoiding tissue flaccidity.
It’s important to note that yes, in most cases, we extract the fat.
In patients where we just want to define the musculature, or in thin patients that just have localized fat deposits, generally the abdomen or sides of the back, is where we can just do laser lipolysis, without extracting fat.
If we need to use the fat for lipo-injections, called liposculpting, we use laser after extracting the fat to avoid burning it and retaining its properties, to be placed elsewhere in the body, where we want more volume.
Benefits of laser lipolysis:
- Less irregularities.
- Correcting irregularities from previous liposuctions with greater success.
- Reduces the risk of bleeding.
- Recovery is 50% shorter than with conventional liposuction.
- Skin retraction of skin flaccidity by laser action.
- Neoformation of elastane and collagen is promoted with the revascularization, which improves the quality and characteristics of the skin on the medium term.
