Liposuction has been a mainstay of the cosmetic medical world for many years. Every few years, you hear about advances in liposuction that are designed to make the procedure safer, more effective and leave patients with smoother results. One of the latest additions to the world of liposuction is the ProLipo™ procedure. This is a form of liposuction that is assisted by the use of a laser. The goal is to provide precision and accuracy for this body contouring procedure.
Similar to what you would see with other liposuction technologies, the ProLipo™ procedure removes unwanted fat from your body using a cannula. The difference is that inside the cannula, there is a laser. This laser increases the temperature of the fat around the treated area until it melts away. This makes it easier for the fat to be removed from the area, leaving a patient with less trauma after the procedure is complete.
Like other forms of lipo, ProLipo™ is not designed to be a diet or exercise replacement. It is not a weight loss procedure, but it is designed to work in conjunction with your diet and exercise. It aims to step in and address fatty deposits that your diet and exercise have not been able to remove on their own. ProLipo™ allows our surgeon to perform liposuction on some parts the body where traditional liposuction cannot be performed, all the while setting the stage for the procedure to produce amazing results.
One of the nice things about ProLipo™ is that the heat from the laser is going to minimize the amount of bleeding that happens during the procedure and minimize the amount of bruising you will experience once the procedure is complete. This entire procedure can be performed under local anesthetic. Since you do not need to use a general anesthetic and since there is a reduction in the amount of bleeding that takes place, any risk the patient has is drastically lowered when compared to traditional forms of lipo.
This form of liposuction allows the patient to heal quickly. It also provides our doctor with more flexibility, especially when it comes to addressing fibrous fatty deposits that are a challenge to get out. The more flexibility our doctor has when performing your procedure, the more precise your treatment will be. ProLipo™ has been shown time and time again to provide amazing results, especially in parts of the body that do not usually react well to traditional liposuction.
ProLipo™ is regarded by many in the cosmetic world as a top tier laser-assisted liposuction technology. It has provided incredible results in countless patients around the world.
