Laser Liposuction

 

Laser Liposuction is the latest advance in tumescent liposuction. Laser Liposuction, or more appropriately called, laser assisted liposuction or laser lipolysis, is a form of liposuction that uses a laser to emulsify fat prior to the suctioning process. At Houston Smart Lipo Centers, we use the SmartLipo laser, which was the first FDA approved laser for laser lipolysis.

 

Though SmartLipo was the first laser FDA approved for this procedure, many other "fat melting" lasers are now on the market and many others are being developed. Other lasers include CoolLipo and LipoLite. All of these lasers have the ability to emulsify fat and also have a skin tightening effect. The skin tightening happens because the laser energy breaks collagen bonds in the dermis stimulating new collagen to form. This process is call neocollagenesis.

 

No certain brand of lipolysis laser at this point has been proven to be superior to any other. It is actually the skill of the surgeon in proper tumescent liposuction technique that is the best predictor of outcome. Dr Bergeron and his team are experts in this procedure and strive to always meet or exceed their patients expectations.
