A Look at Cosmetic Surgery 101

By Art Gib

Laser liposuction is a relatively new technology approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a method of removing fats in certain areas of the body. With this new technology, people have found an alternative to traditional liposuction. However, when it comes to this new procedure, there is still a lot to know about laser liposuction.

Laser liposuction is a kind of minimal invasive technique which may lead to bruises in patients. It involves the insertion of a 1 mm canula into a very small incision. The tip of the laser instrument then touches the fats, heating it up, and dissolving the fats paving the way for the dissolved fat to be removed from the body right away.

A short laser liposuction session can be accomplished within thirty minutes. However, if the procedure involves a bigger amount of fat or if includes several areas, the whole procedure may require up to a couple of hours to finish.

However, laser liposuction is not suitable for anybody. There are claims that it can be effective on all parts of the body, but the truth of the matter is that it can only work on certain parts. This procedure is only ideal for regions such as the neck, face, and arms.

Recently, however, cosmetic surgery has gained in popularity. Today, it is a widely accepted practice and those wishing to change their appearance can find a wide array of choices ranging from tucks and snips to complete facelift.

With the traditional method, a needle is used in order to suck fat tissues outside your body. You may have seen this kind of surgery in the television already. The traditional method is a brutal one while the laser technique is more gentle and offers less risk. This is the reason why laser liposuction has become more preferred by people nowadays.

Aside from dissolving fats, another advantage of laser liposuction is that it boosts the production of collagen and skin tightening. This is much better than traditional liposuction wherein the patients would look worse as a result of minimal skin elasticity. As a result, laser treatment is also used for correcting traditional liposuction.
