Lipolysis is a body contouring, fat spot removal procedure. If you are close to your ideal body weight but find that you still have fat in specific areas this may be the procedure for you. Many people use this treatment to get rid of fat from their double chin, chest, back, knees, love handles, tummy, or ankles.
Patients are given a local anesthetic and a small incision is made in the targeted area. After a small laser is inserted and swivelled underneath the skin to melt the fat away. The laser pulses the fat which the body metabolizes and after a small tube is inserted to suction the fat away. Lipolysis shouldn’t be confused with liposuction. Lipolysis uses a laser to get rid of excess fat, and liposuction uses a vacuum.
When you have a lipolysis treatment you will find your skin to be tighter because the laser increases collagen production and there can be a very short recovery time. Recreational activities should be avoided 1-2 weeks after the procedure is finished. This treatment can have you up and walking within the next few hours*.
