You may work out, eat well, and stay active and still not be entirely happy with your appearance. If you look in the mirror and aren’t satisfied, you are not alone. Pregnancy, illness, and other life changes may have changed the shape of your body. Getting your body back to your ideal appearance is a priority, but sometimes, you can’t shed some areas of fat. It may be time to explore laser liposuction. A less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, the procedure is offered right here at Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham.
How It Works
In traditional liposuction, incisions are made to remove fat. This type of procedure requires healing time and is not without risk. Laser liposuction requires less downtime because laser energy is used to shrink fat cells. The cells are made up of fatty acids and water. After laser liposuction, those contents are flushed out, which gives the body a more slender appearance. Laser liposuction also adds firmness to the skin because it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
Who Can Benefit?
As the procedure is minimally-invasive, laser liposuction is best for someone looking for a sleeker appearance. It does not lead to a large amount of fat loss like for weight loss. Laser liposuction is best for those bothered by stubborn fat in areas like the belly.
Some patients immediately see a difference in their appearance. Others may need repeated treatments to get to their ideal results.
How to Maintain Results
It is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to prevent new fat cells from taking root and the old ones from filling back up. The procedure works best in someone who can ensure a healthy lifestyle.
