Laser Liposuction Reviews

What Is Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction utilizes ultrasound waves to dissolve fatty tissue in such a targeted way that no other surrounding tissue, including veins and blood vessels, will be destroyed. Because of this laser liposuction is considered a non invasive procedure. Once the fat cells have been liquefied by the ultrasound it can either be absorbed by the body's lymphatic system or removed by a very gentle suction method. The results are smooth and even but come with a warning. Unless a daily regime of healthy eating and exercise can be adopted and maintained, the full long term benefits of laser liposuction may not be enjoyed. Thousands of liposuction procedures are carried out daily in clinics up and down the UK on the knees, abdomen, thighs, chin and buttocks.

laser liposuction is also known as smart liposuction

Pros And Cons

If a conventional approach to successful fat reduction has not worked, you may be wondering about the pros and cons of turning to laser lipo.

One key benefit of laser liposuction is that it is a less invasive procedure than surgical liposuction. The incisions that are made are smaller for example, something that can lower the risk of complications such as infection significantly, and reduce the recovery time. Lipo laser can also target common problem areas of your body such as thighs, hips and stomach successfully and quickly, and it can be performed as an outpatient treatment.

With any surgery, there are “cons” or drawbacks of which to be aware. One drawback associated with laser lipo is pain after surgery. A laser procedure may result in side-burns to the skin and under-belly, and pain after the treatment that can last up to three to four months. Other potential side effects include lumpiness, sagging skin, numbness, discoloration and dimpling. There is also the possibility that some areas of the skin may not look as smooth as expected after surgery. These areas are called contour irregularities, and they can only be reversed through additional surgery. In very rare cases, an internal organ could be punctured during the procedure. However, if skilled professionals are carrying out the treatment, there is a very low possibility of this happening.

Find Out About Laser Liposuction

If you are considering laser liposuction but have no idea what to expect from the procedure then it’s well worth doing some research and gathering as much information as you can before making your final decision. If you go online you will find numerous sites providing plenty of laser liposuction reviews written by real people who have undergone the surgery and by medical professionals. It’s worth bearing in mind that not all reviews you read will be positive but, in general, you will be able to get a good idea of what you can expect if you wish to proceed with laser liposuction.

Many people who have already undergone laser liposuction are generally very pleased with both the procedure itself and the outcome, claiming that they felt little pain and that the areas of swelling and redness were far less than they had initially expected. Another plus side to this particular form of liposuction which makes this surgery a popular choice is the fact that this procedure can be carried out on an out patient basis with minimal recovery time.

Progress Reviews

Some online review sites provide reviews written by patients in a diary form which begin before the laser liposuction procedure has taken place and then continue after the surgery as a daily progress report which documents the relevant aspects of life after their surgery. One particular review takes you through an entire 10 months of a patient’s life after her laser liposuction procedure and you can read about how she dealt with the swelling, how she gradually watched her new figure emerge, how much exercise she felt was safe without straining herself, her expectations of the end result and how she felt in general. This patient has also included before and after photographs as well as week by week post op photos to give you a clear picture of how the surgery worked for her.

She even gives hints and advice on things you can do to ease swelling, which supplements to take and aftercare tips that had positive results for her. These types of reviews are invaluable if you are considering laser liposuction but just don’t know what to expect in the ensuing post op weeks. At the top of each review you will be able to see exactly how much that particular individual’s liposuction cost, which part of the body they received the laser liposuction on and whether they felt the surgery was worth it, both financially and through the results achieved. The vast majority of cases claimed that it was worth it.

The Star System Review Site

Another excellent laser liposuction review site runs on a star system with patients giving 5 stars for a positive experience and further down the scale for a not so positive or bad experience. It’s very reassuring to see that the majority of patients who underwent laser liposuction surgery have given their experience between 4 and 5 stars. This review site also has a pain level section where the patients fill out the level of pain they experienced after their procedure and again it was a reassurance to see that the majority experienced mild to moderate pain with very few experiencing severe pain.

Your Decision

If you decide, after reading the reviews, that you would like to go ahead with laser liposuction then always ensure you opt for a reputable clinic or hospital employing professional, highly qualified staff who have plenty of experience with this procedure and make sure you ask as many questions as possible and get all the information you need at your initial consultation, after all it's your body and you have a right to know it's in safe hands.
