A trustworthy surgeon will satisfactorily respond to your inquiries. But before you can address your questions, we can provide a little insight into laser liposuction. Below are frequently asked questions about laser liposuction and their detailed answers to help you make an educated decision. 

FAQs About Laser Liposuction

Will The Weight Stay Off After The Treatment?

This is a huge concern for people since some claim that the weight comes back immediately after treatment. Contrary to the rumors, the weight will not immediately grow or return to a different region. However, you should plan to maintain a balanced diet and add regular exercise to your lifestyle if you want to keep your new body shape. 

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Liposuction?

There are many benefits of laser liposuction. They are what makes this method of liposuction preferable to the traditional technique. 

A Fast Recovery Time – Laser liposuction has a quicker recovery period since the operation is less intrusive than standard liposuction. Traditional liposuction patients must take at least a few weeks to recuperate, whereas laser liposuction patients can return to work the same day as the treatment.

It Can Reduce Sagging Skin and Cellulite – Sagging skin can remain after traditional liposuction, but laser liposuction is different because it tightens sagging skin. The laser’s heat encourages collagen formation, which aids in skin tightening. Dimpling and sagging are frequent side effects of traditional liposuction because the surgery has no skin-tightening benefits.

What Kind Of Anesthesia Will Be Used? 

The surgeon will inform you whether they will use general or local anesthesia during the procedure. In most cases, oral sedatives like Valium combined with a narcotic like Hydrocodone will be enough for the whole session.

If your doctor administers any anesthetic, it is often to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Therefore, you can consult your doctor about it before your surgery. Besides anesthesia, the practitioners will monitor your blood pressure and pulse. 

Are There Any Risks Associated With This Procedure? 

Every surgical procedure has risks. Surgeons must inform you of all the possible effects of a procedure and ensure you understand them before making a decision. Laser liposuction has some risks; a good surgeon will explain them in detail. Therefore, be wary of a surgeon who promises a risk-free procedure.

Laser lipo involves using a laser to liquefy fat from problem body parts. Potential side effects of the procedure include pain in the surgically treated area and infection, skin necrosis, dimpling, lumpiness, numbness, scarring, and discoloration.

Where Will The Procedure Be Carried Out?

Plastic surgeons perform liposuction surgery in hospitals, outpatient centers, and private practices. It can also happen in accredited wellness centers. Always check if the center or institution is accredited. 

How Long Will My Procedure Take? 

The size of the treatment area, or the number of locations to be treated, will determine how long your procedure will take.

Laser lipo sessions last an hour per region. Depending on where the surgery is being done, they can go on a little longer. After your session, do not expect to see improvements immediately. They will likely take two to six months to materialize.

One treatment should be sufficient to get good results. But you can give it some time and revisit your surgeon if you are unsatisfied with the results.

How Long Will My Recovery Take? 

It is necessary to get a practical estimate of your recovery time. It will enable you to plan your schedule, so it does not interfere with work. If the doctor uses general anesthesia, it will affect your recovery. But if you receive a local anesthetic, as is the case with most laser lipo operations, you will be able to return to work and daily activities in a few days.

Can I See Before & After Pictures Of SmartLipo Treatments? 

A qualified and experienced surgeon will be glad to show you the before and after pictures of past patients. This will give you a sense of the outcomes you can anticipate. But remember, bodies are different, and you should not expect the exact results.
