Cosmetic surgery has evolved drastically over the years, particularly with the advent of more-advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. The field of liposuction is no exception as it has also seen significant technological breakthroughs in recent years, all with the common goal of making the removal of excess fat less painful and a lot easier. The most recent innovation in this field is laser liposuction, also known as 'laser device' and 'laser lipolysis.' It is a truly remarkable technique that has been helping people across the globe to slim down and zap undesirable fat in areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. More importantly, laser liposuction has been given the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a non-invasive liposculpture technique used for removing pesky pockets of fat such as the love handles, saddlebags, double chin and those at the back of the thighs. It effectively trims down areas that are unresponsive to weight loss gimmicks and does it with less side-effects than traditional liposuction. The concept is quite simple, the plastic surgeon uses a laser and cannula to heat, melt and remove unwanted fat in the targeted areas. The laser also spurs the formation of collagen which is the primary structural protein found in the skin. Collagen production tends to decline with age so laser lipo also helps assists in skin regeneration in the treated area. The end result is a slimmer, smoother and tighter body contour.

The procedure has been dubbed as 'lunchtime treatment' as it is usually performed on an outpatient setting under local and/or tumescent anesthesia, depending on the volume of fat that needs to be removed. Laser liposuction was originally introduced in 2007 with SmartLipo. Over the next couple of years it has been joined by other players such as SlimLipo, CoolLipo, LipoTherme and ProLipo Plus, just to name a few.
