Laser Liposuction Q & A

What is laser liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic treatment that removes unwanted fat from various body parts to improve shape and contours. Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses several tools to loosen and suction away the unwanted fat.

At Lancaster Wellness Med Spa, the team does laser liposuction for body contouring treatments. This minimally invasive device uses laser energy to liquify the fat and then a tiny tube (cannula) to remove it.

The team performs this procedure at the office using a local anesthetic and tiny incisions. 

In addition to liquifying the fat, the heat energy from the laser tightens the tissue, minimizing loose, saggy skin.

Am I a candidate for laser liposuction?

The Lancaster Wellness Med Spa team determines if you’re a candidate for laser liposuction during a consultation. Though the body contouring tool eliminates excess body fat, it’s not a weight-loss procedure. 

The team may consider you a candidate for laser liposuction if you’re at or close to your goal weight and have stubborn pockets of fat you can’t lose with diet and exercise. 

What areas can laser liposuction treat?

The team can remove unwanted body fat from many areas of the body, including:

  • Stomach
  • Waist
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

Lancaster Wellness Med Spa also offers CoolSculpting® for body contouring, which eliminates unwanted fat by freezing and destroying the fat cells. Your body then removes these fat cells slowly over time.

What happens during laser liposuction?

The team at Lancaster Wellness Med Spa customizes your laser liposuction treatment plan and reviews the details at your consultation. While you relax in the treatment chair, they clean your skin with an antiseptic agent and administer a local anesthetic.

They make a small incision to insert the laser tool, liquify the fat, and then use the cannula to remove it. Treatment takes about an hour per area.

What can I expect during recovery from laser liposuction?

You can expect some bruising and swelling at the site of your fat removal after laser liposuction. The team recommends you plan on taking it easy for a few days after your treatment.

You can resume most activities after the initial healing process, but the team recommends you avoid strenuous activity for up to three weeks. You should see improvements in your figure immediately after your liposuction treatment*.
