Are You a Good Candidate For Laser-Assisted Liposuction?

Featured Image

Laser-assisted liposuction is an exciting procedure that will help remove excess fat deposits from your body that you struggle to burn through diet and exercise, helping you display your natural curves and tightening loose skin. This treatment is less invasive than other traditional liposuction procedures, with less swelling and scarring while producing a shorter recovery time.

Our skilled team at Luminary MD in Mission Viejo, CA can help you with laser-assisted liposuction, but you must also be a suitable candidate to benefit from the process.

Here’s a look at who can benefit from the procedure and how it can work.

Are you in good health?

While laser-assisted liposuction is easy to manage, it is intended for people who are in good health. While the treatment helps remove fat deposits, it can also be stressful on your body if it is not strong enough to handle the procedure. You should also have good skin laxity because laser-assisted liposuction will not be able to address loose or sagging skin.

Have you tried everything you can to burn excess fat?

Diet and exercise are critical for burning fat, but some fat deposits can resist these efforts and make it harder for you to lose weight. Some deposits can be hard to burn because your fat cells will grow in size as you gain weight. As you lose that weight, those cells will start to shrink, but they won’t go away altogether. Laser-assisted liposuction helps remove that excess fat before it can be too hard to manage.

Are you close to your desired body weight?

Laser-assisted liposuction is not intended for people who are obese and have significant weight loss needs. The plan is mainly for people who have lost weight but are struggling to get rid of the few final pockets of fat. We recommend you are within about 20 – 25 pounds of your ideal body weight before undergoing the process.

Are you motivated to keep your weight in check?

This procedure is also for people who have the discipline and motivation necessary to keep a steady and healthy weight. The results of liposuction will not last long if your weight keeps fluctuating. Be prepared to keep your weight under control without risking lots of weight gain or loss afterward.

How laser-assisted liposuction is performed

The experts at Luminary MD will use the BeautiFill® system by Alma to treat excess fat deposits. The BeautiFill procedure uses laser energy to heat and loosen fat cells from the skin. These cells are then harvested from your body without impacting surrounding healthy tissues. It requires a significantly smaller treatment area for your protection. The practice is suitable for many areas that might have stubborn fat deposits, including the stomach, thighs, arms, and flanks.
