We all have that one area of our body we wish we could get rid of. Whether it’s stubborn saddlebags, a paunchy stomach, or even a double chin, traditional diet and exercise just doesn’t seem to do the trick. That’s where laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction comes in. This type of liposuction is used to contour your body in those areas that are resistant to diet and exercise and can help you get the body you desire.  Let’s take a look at how this procedure works. 

How It Works 

Laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction in that it removes fat from your body. However, the difference lies in how the fat is removed. In this procedure, the fat is liquefied before being extracted from your body through suctioning by a cannula (a thin tube). The use of lasers or ultrasound helps break down the fat before it is suctioned out making it easier for your surgeon to remove larger amounts of fat with less trauma to surrounding tissue than seen with traditional liposuction techniques. The removal of large amounts of fat also means patients may experience fewer bruising, swelling, and more skin tightening than what would occur using traditional methods. 

What Areas Can Be Treated? 

Laser- or ultrasound-assisted liposuction can be used on many areas of your body including abdomen, ankles, arms, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees neck , thighs , upper arms , and waist . Areas where these procedures are most commonly used include abdomen/waistline (love handles), male chest (gynecomastia), flanks (saddlebags) inner thighs , outer thighs , arms , calves/ankles , back (bra roll) chin/neck (double chin) breasts (male breast reduction) buttocks face cheeks knees and hips . Of course there are other areas which this type of liposuction can be used if needed. Talk to your doctor about any questions you may have about which areas can be treated with laser or ultrasound assisted liposuction. 

Laser- or ultrasound-assisted liposuction offers an effective way to reduce fullness in those hard to target areas that don’t respond well to diet and exercise alone. While this procedure isn’t meant as a weight control method or cure for obesity—it’s important not to view it as such—it can help give you the contoured shape you desire by removing stubborn pockets of fat safely and effectively with minimal trauma or risk compared to traditional methods. If you’re considering laser- or ultrasound-assisted lipo talk with your doctor about its benefits as well as any potential risks involved so you know what types of results you can expect from the procedure before moving forward with treatment.
