How Does Laser-Assisted Liposuction Work?

Tumescent laser-assisted liposuction is a simple, straightforward procedure. It is FDA-approved and the safest form of liposuction with minimal bruising and fast recovery time. Just about any area of the body can be treated, including the stomach, flanks (love handles), arms, outer and inner thighs, and neck. Dr. Milanes injects the fat with local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, allowing him to perform the procedure while you’re awake with little to no discomfort.

Here’s how the procedure works:

  • First, you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Milanes to assess your body and goals to ensure liposuction is right for you
  • The night before, you’ll take an antibiotic to prevent infection
  • On the day of your procedure, you are allowed to have a meal. then you will take another antibiotic.
  • When you arrive at Luminary MD, we’ll take before photos, confirm your treatment plan, and mark your body. If you want, we’ll provide pain medication for you to take.
  • The target area will be numbed and then Dr. Milanes will begin your liposuction procedure. During the procedure, you’ll be awake and able to listen to music, browse the internet, or talk to our team if you like.
  • After you’re done, you’ll be cleaned and wrapped in a compression garment to help with swelling.

We are also proud to be the first provider offering liposuction with BeautiFill® by Alma. Liposuction done with BeautiFill gently removes the fat using a laser that also tightens the skin while keeping the fat intact and is done immediately after the liposuction procedure. The fat can be transferred to any part of the body you want to enhance: the face, breasts, butt, or hands. So, you get the benefit of removing the fat where you don’t want it and putting it where you do.
