How Laser-Assisted Liposuction Can Help You Feel More Confident Before the Holidays

Do you want to show up at holiday parties with family, friends, and colleagues with a sculpted physique that you’re proud to show off? Are you ready to wear that fitted dress or shirt with confidence? 

All the diet and exercise possible can’t trim the stubborn trouble spots that prevent you from looking and feeling your best, but laser-assisted liposuction can.

This minimally invasive procedure also gives relatively quick results. You don’t have to wait months to see a change like you do with noninvasive laser or freezing body-sculpting therapies. 

Dr. Yaqub Baraki of Lansdowne Aesthetic Center recommends laser-assisted liposuction when you want to look good now! Men and women benefit equally from laser liposuction. Read on to learn the details.

Laser liposuction is effective at spot-reducing fat

Laser liposuction is minimally invasive, but effective in reducing unwanted fat from areas like your thighs, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and back. Just about anywhere that’s a problem area for you can be treated with the innovative technique.

Laser liposuction involves placing a laser fiber just below the skin to melt away fat. Melting the fat first allows Dr. Baraki to create a smoother, more contoured shape in the treated areas. This fat is then vacuumed out with a traditional suction device to leave you looking slimmer and sculpted.

The laser treatment also tightens the skin surfaces so that you aren’t left with sagging skin after the procedure. The laser energy stimulates the development of more collagen, a skin-strengthening protein, so you look taut and tight shortly after the procedure. This makes laser lipo a significant upgrade from traditional liposuction.

Results by the holidays

Of course, you’ll have some downtime following laser liposuction, but it’s minimal. If you have smaller areas treated, like the lower abdomen, back, or upper knees, you’ll be back to work in just a few days.

If you want a complete transformation before you travel home for the holidays, plan to take about one week off from your normal activities.

You will need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks following treatment to help minimize swelling and smooth the skin, even when you’re back to daily activities. But, the positive effects of your laser liposuction will be noticeable in time for holiday celebrations.

These quick results aren’t possible with other body sculpting treatments like CoolSculpting® or WarmSculpting® by SculpSure™. Though these can be effective in contouring the body, the results typically take up to 12 weeks to show. Plus, you may need multiple sessions of these noninvasive modes to get results – with laser liposuction, usually just one session is enough.

You’ll still be slim next year

The fat-reducing effects of laser liposuction won’t just be around for this year’s holiday; they’re permanent. Laser lipo won’t prevent you from gaining future weight in other areas, however. Be diligent about living a healthy lifestyle that includes smart eating and exercise, so you keep looking slim and sculpted for many years to come.
