Liposuction Q & A

What is laser liposuction?

Laser liposuction is a fat reduction procedure that can be a great option if you want liposuction but don’t want to have surgery. Women First Weight Loss & Lipo Center uses the top-rated Smartlipo Triplex laser system for minimally-invasive liposuction right in the office. 

The treatment takes less than two hours, and most patients only need one treatment session for very nice results. There’s little-to-no downtime, with most patients returning to work in a day or two.

How does liposuction work?

For laser liposuction at Women First Weight Loss & Lipo Center, Dr. Corney administers local anesthesia (no general anesthesia needed) and makes tiny pinpoint-sized incisions to insert the ultrathin cannula (tube) into the incisions. Then, she advances the slender Smartlipo Triplex laser fiber through the cannula. 

The laser fiber ruptures your fat cells to destroy them. Smartlipo Triplex is also clinically proven to coagulate your soft tissues, which tightens your skin. 

What areas of the body can laser lipo treat?

Smartlipo Triplex can treat any part of your body with extra fat. The most popular treatment areas include:

  • Arms - the “bat wings” of the upper arms
  • Chest - men’s chest area
  • Back - upper and middle back including “bra fat”
  • Abdomen - belly area, if you have mild sagging
  • Love handles - fat deposits on the sides of your waist and hips
  • Thighs - inner and outer thighs
  • Chin - double chin 

Some of these treatment areas also benefit other parts of your body. For example, Smartlipo Triplex treatment in your outer thighs can slim and tone your whole silhouette and even reduce excess fat in your buttocks. SmartLipo Triplex can also treat the neck, buttocks, inner knees, calves, and ankles.

If you’re concerned about fat in a different area, talk to Dr. Corney, and she can recommend either laser lipo or another effective body sculpting treatment. Women First Weight Loss & Lipo Center offers a variety of effective approaches for both weight loss and body sculpting, and one of them will meet your needs. 

When will I notice results after laser liposuction?

Usually, you can see results from liposuction within one week. Then, you experience continued improvement over the next three to six months.
