Lipolite Laser Liposculpture in Danville, California

Lipolite laser liposculpture is a body sculpting and contouring procedure that uses the suction of traditional liposuction with the fat-melting abilities of fiber optic lasers. The combination of the two methods effectively rids fat, but with less trauma, discomfort, swelling, bruising, blood loss and downtime associated with traditional liposuction alone. Healing times are also faster and general anesthesia is not necessary.

After numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic, a tiny incision is made to allow a cannula (thin metal tube) to be guided into the cut. The cannula has a hollow center in which the specialist guides an optical laser through to discharge laser energy and liquefy the fat cells that are then suctioned out through the same tube.

By first heating and breaking apart the fat cells with laser energy, the fat is more easily suctioned out. The laser’s heat also has another benefit: it encourages collagen production which, over time, can lead to the treatment area being firmer and tighter.  

Lipolite laser liposculpture is best for men and women who are in good health and have stubborn areas of fat that do not respond well to traditional liposuction and regular diet and exercise. The procedure is not designed to treat large areas of fat, rather it works on small regions that are located in the:
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Face
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Belly
  • Buttocks

The entire outpatient procedure takes up to an hour for each area being treated, and typically only one session is needed. Initial results should be immediate following Lipolite laser liposculpture, with more apparent outcomes occurring during the subsequent 6 to 8 weeks. To sustain results, the patient should maintain a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise. This will better ensure that fat will not return to the treatment area.
