Laser Liposuction - Plastic Surgery FL
Laser Liposuction is an ultra precise method of body contouring, ideal for patients who want small areas of fat removed with reduced downtime. Using a laser assisted liposuction device, Dr. Maercks can gently liquefy fat allowing for easier removal.
Dr. Maercks is a one of the only plastic surgeons to offer laser assisted liposuction in Miami.
Who Should Consider Laser Assisted Liposuction?
Ideal candidates for laser liposuction are in good physical health and within 25 lbs of their ideal body weight.
Like other liposuction methods, laser lipo is best for eradicating areas of persistent body fat. If your healthy diet and exercise routine haven’t helped you meet your goals for body slimming, you may want to consider a laser liposuction procedure at our Miami Beach plastic surgery practice.
Common body areas for laser liposuction include:
- Upper Arms
Laser Liposuction may also be utilized during other cosmetic procedures such as male breast reduction or tummy tuck.
The Procedure: How Laser Liposuction Works
Laser liposuction is neither a weight loss method nor an advisable procedure for patients who are obese. Rather it's a body contouring method for targeted fat removal. Tiny incisions are made before a special laser-equipped cannula (a thin tube) is inserted to remove fat with suction. The laser breaks up the fat and allows for easier fat removal, along with mild skin tightening through gentle heating of the underlying tissue.
Life After Laser Assisted Liposuction in Miami
While each patient and surgical procedure will vary somewhat, many patients experience minimal discomfort with the Laser Liposuction procedure. Local anesthesia is often the best choice, which allows you to stay awake during the procedure and get back to a normal routine quicker.
