Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction is the most frequent cosmetic surgery procedure chosen by men and women. The ultimate body shape is trim and athletic looking. For men its broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area. For women, it is a toned abdomen, no floppy arm fat, firm buttocks and toned fit thighs. This shape changes with age as fatty tissue progressively builds up around the abdomen, the flanks ("love handles"), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck. Or, perhaps you have lived for years with a double chin. Men and women seek liposuction to remove these fatty areas which frequently are resistant to diet and exercise. Laser Liposuction can effectively correct these problem areas. In fact, liposuction is very favorable because of its skin thickness and retained elasticity. Occasionally, people who have very loose, hanging skin in addition to excess fat may need surgical skin removal (tummy tuck) along with the liposuction procedure. At Binghamton Plastic Surgery, we further improve our final cosmetic results by sculpting the tissues near the muscles to enhance the athletic shape of a particular anatomic area. Laser liposuction can change your life in many ways. It can make you look better physically, make you feel better about yourself and give you the motivation to lead a healthier life.

True Laser Body Sculpting

The SlimLipo™ Body Sculpting Laser from Palomar™ is FDA cleared for laser-assisted lipolysis, and it is the first system optimized specifically for this application. The laser contours and tightens the body using smaller incisions, which results in less bruising and less blood loss than traditional liposuction. SlimLipo also has a decreased risk of contour deformities during surgery.

Liposuction is still the best way to remove small pockets of fat that do not respond to lifestyle changes. A small incision is made in the skin near the affected area, through which the surgeon inserts a small suction tube or syringe to remove fatty deposits.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is SlimLipo Appropriate for Heavier Patients?
    • SlimLipo may be performed on heavier patients. Patients with significant weight may need to complete a weight loss program before being treated with SlimLipo. Your SlimLipo physician will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
  • What does the process feel like?
    • You may be pleasantly surprised by how little discomfort you'll feel. You may feel a slight pinching and minimal discomfort during the numbing process. During the treatment, patients often say they feel slight warmth in the area. Our state-of-the-art system features technology that has been carefully designed to ease unnecessary trauma to the body.
  • Can I use SlimLipo Laser body Sculpting if I've already had Liposuction?
    • Yes. Since traditional liposuction can often result in skin irregularities, these patients are often good candidates for SlimLipo. Laser body sculpting can gently “melt” remaining unwanted fat and help smooth out dents and dimples.
  • How many Treatments will I need?
    • Typically, one treatment is enough for a given area.
  • Is this for Men, too?
    • Yes. SlimLipo can be used to minimize stubborn, fatty areas for men, too. As with women, men can target almost anywhere on the body but one of the more common areas is the chest.
  • What is SlimLipo and how can it help me?
    • SlimLipoTM body sculpting is a revolutionary treatment that uses a “fat-melting” laser. Via a few tiny incisions, this patented laser gently “melts” fat for easy removal from your body. Its superior minimally-invasive technology helps you achieve a slimmer look with minimal downtime.
  • Which Parts of My body can be treated?
    • You can treat fat on almost any area of your body with SlimLipo laser body sculpting, but common areas for treatment include the stomach, back (bra bulge), buttocks, chin, neck, love handles, thighs and upper arms.
  • How fast is the SlimLipo Procedure?
    • Depending on the area being treated, this body sculpting treatment may take as little as an hour. Larger trouble spots may take slightly more time. During your pre-procedure consultation, your SlimLipo physician will perform an evaluation and go over any questions with you.
