Laser liposuction (lipolaser) or ultrasonic assisted liposuction (UAL) are revolutionary and less invasive techniques than traditional liposuction. The purpose of these procedures is also to suction out the accumulation of localized fat, but with greater retraction of the skin thus avoiding sagging. The action of the laser or ultrasound produces an increase in temperature that helps to liquefy the fat cells so that they are released more easily and more quickly.
More accurate results
Eliminates flaccidity and cellulite
The procedure consists of performing the traditional technique of liposuction, but assisted by laser or by ultrasound. The process is developed in three phases, liquid infiltration, laser application and aspiration of fat, which due to these technologies are performed with greater ease. Usually performed under local anaesthesia plus sedation and generally does not require hospitalisation, but will always depend on the areas to be treated and the specific case of the patient.
The lipolaser or ultrasonic assisted liposuction (UAL) can be performed on any area of the body or face that has an accumulation of localized fat, such as legs, cartridges, abdomen, arms, jowls, knees… Although it is especially recommended in areas that tend to have more flaccidity, such as the abdomen. In these cases the difference in the outcome with respect to traditional liposuction will be more noticeable.
Type of treatment: surgical.
Length of procedure: 1 to 3 hours depending on the area.
Anaesthesia: normally local plus sedation.
Hospitalisation: 1 to 3 nights depending on the area.
Recovery: approximately 5 days.
The recovery process is quite fast, since it is a less invasive liposuction than the traditional one. After 4 or 5 days the patient can normally return to work, although it will depend to a great extent on the area/s treated.
Patients often describe the pain like stiffness in the treated areas and it is necessary to wear a compression garment for about a month. Several sessions of lymphatic drainage are usually advisable to facilitate recovery and to obtain a better result.
Appreciable after swelling
Permanent without excessive weight gain
In short with laser or ultrasonic assisted liposuction you obtain very satisfactory results, since it allows not only the removal of localized fat, but also improves sagging and reduces cellulite by the tensor effect they produce on the skin through the stimulation of collagen and the elastin.
