A Guide to Laser Lipo
1) What is Non-invasive Laser Lipo
Laser lipo is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that removes bodily fat through laser light. It can be used for body contouring to help you shape your body, so you look better.
2) Who can undergo laser lipo?
Anyone who has nearly achieved their target weight but want to lose excess fat can take up this procedure. It is important to note, it is not a procedure to treat obesity. Excess fat on the tummy, face, hips, thighs, etc. can be removed. The patient needs to be in good health condition with a BMI under 25. Those who are pregnant or suffering from heart problems or other serious issues cannot undergo this procedure.
3) What are the benefits of laser lipo?

It is safe, minimally invasive, and a patient-friendly procedure.
The procedure happens as an outpatient process with hardly any downtime.

The results would be permanent, as long as the patient maintains their weight through diet and exercise.
4) How is the procedure carried out?
The patient may need to stop taking certain medications like blood thinners before the procedure. Laser lipo is an outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia. It usually takes around an hour’s time. The exact time depends on the areas to be covered. After numbing the area, a small incision is made to send the laser light.
The laser light then heats up the fat and melts it. A tube is then inserted to suck out the melted fat. The incision is then closed to complete the procedure.
5) Recovery and results
Since the procedure is minimally invasive, recovery is very fast. There is hardly any downtime and you can resume work almost immediately. However, a couple of days rest would ensure there are no problems. You may experience some soreness. A compression garment may be required to be worn.
The results of the procedure would be apparent immediately. Once the swelling heals, the results can be seen. The procedure helps you lose fat making you look slimmer. As long you as you follow a healthy lifestyle, the results would last long.
