Laser Body Contouring: Shrinking Cells
Surgery doesn’t always require a long recuperation. Browse Groupon’s guide to laser lipolysis to learn more about a less-invasive option.
Like traditional liposuction, laser lipolysis, or laser-assisted liposuction, surgically removes excess fat from the body. The procedure is much-less invasive, though, and doesn’t employ suction. First, the surgeon anesthetizes the desired area, then makes a tiny incision. She or he then inserts the cannula, a small tube housing a laser that liquefies the fat cells, which drain through the cannula. The energy from the laser also heats the tissue, which can leave the skin tighter and the muscles less lonely. Because it takes time for the body to construct new collagen after controlled thermal damage, patients may even see a continued tightening-and-toning effect in the weeks following treatment. Although the procedure causes some bruising and discomfort, these effects are typically minimal compared to more-intensive surgeries, and most patients can resume normal activities within one to two days.
