What Parts of Your Body Respond Well to Laser Liposuction

You diet. You exercise. You still have body fat in areas that keeps you from having a sculpted, toned physique. Enter laser lipolysis, a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to melt body fat.

Instead of using a vacuum to suction away unwanted fat, as in conventional liposuction, the laser melts fat, so it’s easily drained and simultaneously stimulates collagen production. The added collagen firms surrounding tissue, so your skin doesn’t sag or pucker.

At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center in Baltimore, Maryland, experienced cosmetic surgeon Yagub Baraki, MD uses the Sciton ProLipo Plus™ system to perform this revolutionary, minimally invasive procedure to eliminate your unwanted fat.

The laser is effective at treating just about any part of your body that has pockets of unwanted fat. Read on to learn how you can benefit.

Slim stubborn areas

Popular areas treated with ProLipo include the abdomen and love handles. If your thighs are generous, laser liposuction effectively shrinks saddle bags as well as the inner and outer thighs.

Some men and women are bothered by pockets of fat around their back. Women can get the roll that accumulates at their bra line treated. Saggy knees or thick ankles benefit, too.

Your face can also make you look older and larger than you are. Laser liposuction effectively treats a double chin, or submental fullness, and jowls to slim out your profile.

Talk to Dr. Baraki about your specific problem areas; he’ll explain how ProLipo will help your body take a new shape.

Appropriate candidates

Laser liposuction can’t offer comprehensive weight loss, but if you’re reasonably fit and near a normal weight, the procedure can help you. The treatment targets localized pockets of fat that exercise and diet can’t dissolve.

Benefits of laser liposuction

ProLipo Plus offers rapid results, minimal bruising and downtime, and a fast treatment time. A ProLipo session is also comfortable and easy. Typically, you’ll need just one session of ProLipo Plus to get the results you desire.

You’ll notice your results almost immediately. You may have slight swelling or bruising in treatment areas in the day or two after your procedure, but recovery is fast. Results continue to improve over several months as your fat distributes and all swelling resolves.

Laser liposuction is performed without general anesthesia, so you don’t have to deal with the risks and hangover of sedation. The procedure is performed right in the office of Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, so you don’t need to travel to a hospital and deal with admission.

After your laser lipo session, you go home to recover. Dr. Baraki gives you complete after-care instructions, but most people return to their regular activities shortly after the procedure.

Combine with conventional liposuction

If you have an area with a more generous pocket of fat, such as your abdomen, butt, or thighs, we may recommend you undergo conventional liposuction along with laser liposuction. The laser procedure fine tunes fat loss and tightens your skin, so you don’t end up with loose skin.

If you’re tired of stubborn pockets of fat and ready to reveal a slimmer you, contact Lansdowne Aesthetic Center to explore your laser lipos
