What Is Laser Liposuction?  

Laser liposuction, known by various names such as laser-assisted liposuction, laser lipolysis, or laser lipo, represents a cutting-edge approach to traditional liposuction techniques. This innovative procedure involves using laser energy to precisely target and liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove from the body. At Leif Rogers MD, we are led by Dr. Rogers' commitment to innovation and advanced techniques, which is why we’re proud to offer this highly effective form of liposuction, providing our patients with an alternative that not only removes unwanted fat but also offers the potential for skin tightening and enhanced contouring.

The Laser Liposuction Difference

Unlike traditional liposuction, which primarily focuses on fat removal, laser liposuction harnesses the power of laser energy to stimulate collagen production in the treated area. This collagen induction can lead to skin tightening and improved elasticity, resulting in a smoother and more sculpted appearance. Dr. Rogers can create a comprehensive approach tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals by integrating laser liposuction with other treatment options. During your consultation for laser liposuction in Beverly Hills & Pasadena, he will take the time to discuss how this treatment can be combined with other procedures to achieve a more holistic and transformative outcome personalized to your individual desires and expectations.

  • Minimally invasive procedure

Is Laser Liposuction Right for Me?

It’s normal to question whether any procedure is right for you. Typically, we’ve found that the clients who are candidates for laser liposuction in Beverly Hills & Pasadena with Dr. Rogers are: 

  • Individuals seeking to address localized areas of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
  • Those with good skin elasticity, as the procedure can also provide skin-tightening benefits
  • Patients desiring a minimally invasive approach to body contouring
  • Individuals looking to achieve more sculpted and defined body contours
  • Those in generally good health and with realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of the procedure
  • Patients seeking a procedure with minimal scarring and a shorter recovery period

The Laser Liposuction Procedure

In laser liposuction, a small cannula (thin tube) is inserted into the targeted area through a small incision. The cannula emits laser energy to heat and liquefy the fat cells, facilitating their removal. The liquefied fat is then suctioned out through the cannula. Laser liposuction offers the added benefit of skin tightening in the treated area. The laser energy stimulates collagen production, promoting skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in a smoother, tighter appearance.

Recovery and Results After Laser Liposuction

After undergoing laser assisted liposuction, patients can anticipate minimal downtime and discomfort. While some swelling and bruising in the treated areas are expected, these effects typically diminish within a few days to a week. Patients can usually resume light activities shortly after the procedure and gradually return to their regular routines as they heal. The minimally invasive nature of laser liposuction facilitates a faster and more comfortable recovery compared to traditional liposuction techniques.

Laser liposuction can yield a more sculpted and contoured physique, with noticeable enhancements in the treated areas. Patients can anticipate improved body contours, reduced fat deposits, and enhanced skin tightness in the treated regions. The precision and efficacy of laser liposuction frequently result in a smoother, more defined appearance, empowering individuals to achieve their desired body shape with heightened confidence.
