One of the newer options in liposuction surgery is laser-assisted liposculpture. This method of removing targeted fat deposits offers some benefits over tumescent liposuction when completed by a talented plastic surgeon. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon with many years of expertise and experience in body contouring. Dr. Shteynberg and our team at Vantage Plastic Surgery offer laser liposuction as one of our contouring procedures at our clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn.
What Is Laser-Assisted Lipo?
To reduce trauma to the skin and tissue during advanced liposuction, the fat is liquified to make it easier to remove. This is true with both tumescent and laser liposuction methods. With laser-assisted lipo, laser energy is used to heat the targeted fat to liquify it and allow it to be suctioned or drained easily. This method can be beneficial for more delicate areas like the face, chin or neck. Laser liposuction is considered less invasive, as it uses smaller cannulas and can result in faster recovery than traditional liposuction methods.
Laser liposuction has some other benefits beyond smaller cannulas and quicker recovery. The use of laser energy can help with improving the skin elasticity and firmness after the procedure. In areas with some lost skin elasticity such as the neck or jowls, laser liposuction may be the recommended liposculpture option to improve the firmness of skin after the procedure.
