Although it doesn’t feel like it yet in some parts of the country, summertime is just around the corner. Warmth and sunshine usually mean shorts, tank tops and swimsuits, which can be a great excuse to show off a toned body. Don’t have the perfect figure? Laser liposuction might just be your ticket to a trimmer silhouette that looks great even in a teeny bikini.
Experts say that the technique is safe, effective and minimally invasive. Compared to surgery, laser liposuction has fewer side effects, a quicker recovery time and is generally a much faster process, since it can be performed in an outpatient setting.
“For patients who want relatively small areas performed under local anesthesia, the laser liposuction is ideal,” said surgeon Daryl Hoffman, quoted by American Health and Beauty. “The [trick] is to control the weight, change your lifestyle and then use the liposuction procedure to sculpt the body.”
The laser technology breaks up fat deposits while sealing up blood vessels at the same time, which causes less bleeding, bruising, swelling and discomfort.
