What is laser liposculpture?

It is a technique that allows to reshape the silhouette, reduce cellulite and reduce flaccidity, with the following characteristics:

  • Quick completion procedure.
  • Outpatient, does not require hospitalization. The person can return to work in 24 or 48 hours.
  • It is performed under local anesthesia, with sedation or without sedation depending on the patient. There are patients who prefer to be sedated during the performance and others to talk without losing consciousness.
  • This procedure allows in most cases to satisfy one or another desire.
  • The procedure avoids traumatic incisions, stitches, and large scars.

A high precision 1mm laser fiber is introduced into the fatty tissue, laser energy dissolves adipocytes and the oil comes out through the minimum incision made to introduce it. After the procedure, a 1 mm cannula finishes aspirating the residual oil and the remains of adipose tissue.

This procedure is less bothersome for the patient. The small size of the fiber (1 mm) allows us to more safely treat body areas with little tissue thickness.
He caloric effect produces collagen being ideal for the treatment of arms and inner thighs.
Its retraction effects are very noticeable on flaccid necks.
