Body contouring uses special techniques to reduce or eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite that don't respond to exercise and dieting. Laser contouring techniques also can help tone and tighten loose skin for a body shape that looks and feels slimmer and sleeker. Body contouring can be an ideal option for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight but are left with specific areas that resist their best efforts at losing weight, and it can also be a great choice for women and men who want to refine their appearance by getting rid of excess pockets of fat, puckery cellulite and sagging skin.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses incisions and invasive instruments to dislodge fat and suction it from the body. Like many surgeries, liposuction can cause considerable postoperative discomfort and a prolonged recovery time, and it also carries the risk of infections and other complications. Plus, tissue damage can be extensive, resulting in significant bruising, swelling, and other side effects. Laser body contouring techniques don't use incisions. Instead, laser energy is directed to the treatment site through the skin, where it breaks down fat and cellulite so they can be eliminated by the body's “waste disposal” processes. Without incisions, the risk of complications is also significantly reduced, and patients experience far less tissue damage and far less postoperative discomfort. Recovery is also much faster, and results can be much more consistent and refined compared to liposuction. Plus, laser heat helps tighten collagen so skin looks and feels firmer and smoother.
Laser body contouring can be performed in about a half hour. During treatment, the laser handpiece is passed over the skin, emitting energy that reaches into the deeper layers of tissue to break apart fat cells and liquefy them. Most patients report no discomfort during the treatment, and there's no downtime, so patients can resume their regular activities afterward. Results typically become visible within a few weeks.
