Laser liposuction or laser lipolysis is a technique commonly used for destroying accumulated fat in the body. The laser radiation by its thermal effect allows the destruction of fat cells and the obtaining of a skin retraction. Comparing with the traditional liposuction procedure, laser liposuction is a less invasive and less bloody procedure in which a small tube is inserted through a tiny incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the excessive fat that is under the skin. The increase in temperature in the dermis induces excitation of the fibroblast which will produce collagen. This skin stretching effect constitutes a definite advantage of laser liposuction, in particular in certain delicate areas where liposuction gives often disappointing results: the inner face of the thighs, arms, neck, stomach area or back. When the quantity of fat to be treated is large, it may be more effective to combine laser liposuction and conventional liposuction to improve the results. The choice between these different techniques will be the result of clinical examination and discussion between the plastic surgeon and the patient.

How Does it Work?
The principle of laser liposuction is based on the bursting of fat cells by a controlled thermal effect. The laser radiation comes directly into contact with the adipocyte, heats it to burst it, the triglycerides released by the burst must then be metabolized by the body or more surely sucked up to accelerate their elimination. This technique should be preferred for localized excess fat. In the case of a larger excess, it is better to use liposuction or to combine the two techniques. It is the ideal treatment for superficial fatty deposits and in particular for cellulite. Indeed, the homogeneity of the results obtained by this technique allows working much more on the surface without creating irregularities, unlike superficial liposuction.
