Sometimes it seems like no matter what you do, the perfect body eludes you. If diet and exercise aren’t enough, it may be time to consider cosmetic procedures to help get the body you want. When it comes to getting rid of stubborn, unwanted fat deposits and reshaping your figure, body contouring and laser liposuction are two of the most effective and popular methods available. They both have the same goal of slimming your physique, but their techniques are different and results can vary. Understanding the difference can help you determine which procedure is best for you.
Body Contouring is a non-invasive procedure that slims and contours the body to diminish scars and stretch marks, melt fat, reduce cellulite, and tighten the skin. A medical laser uses a combination of ultrasound (US) to target and burst stubborn fat cells that flush through the body and radio frequency (RF) to heat and tighten the skin. Depending on desired results, treatments can take between 4-6 sessions, and can last up to 2 years with regular maintenance. Body Contouring provides beautiful, effective, fast, natural-looking results with little to no downtime.
Laser Liposuction (lipolysis) is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to melt away and permanently remove fat underneath the skin. While under local anesthesia, your doctor will make a small incision and insert a tiny laser under the skin that liquefies the fat, and then a tiny tube that removes the melted fat. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over the next few months. Bruising, swelling, and pain are minimal after the procedure, and most clinicians recommend a few days of downtime before returning to work and a few weeks before participating in strenuous activities. Laser Liposuction provides permanent fat reduction and, when coupled with a healthy diet and exercise, can yield beautiful, long-lasting results.
Body Contouring and Laser Liposuction are effective, fat-reducing procedures that have minimal downtime and a relatively quick recovery period. Body Contouring is non-invasive and can take several weeks to be noticeable, while Laser Liposuction is a minor surgical procedure with immediate results.
