Laser Body Sculpting and Contouring
Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, arms, and neck. Laser Liposuction has become increasingly popular over the last decade and is now the most popular for body sculpting procedures.
Besides the traditional suction assisted lipoplasty, other options include ultrasound-assisted and laser lipolysis. The efforts in the search for alternatives and new tools aim mainly at reducing downtime, decreasing operator effort for surgeon and assistant, reduce bleeding and promoting skin tightening.
With laser liposuction it has helped with giving patients less trauma, bleeding and pain. By using this technique it will also stimulate your body’s own collagen and give a skin tightening effect. A flexible fiber optic delivered through a small caliber cannula is inserted inside the fat tissue. The positioning of the 1mm cannula is highlighted via trans-illumination from a red guiding beam. The laser energy is transmitted to the adipocytes (fat cells) which absorb the energy, expand their volume, and rupture. Also coagulation of small vessels in the fatty tissue helps which decreases bruising and swelling. The effect is not only thermal but also thermo mechanical.

We at Total Cosmetix & Laser Body Sculpting would like to educate our patients. We have taken our years of experience and talking to patients to put together a fully detailed guide, in which we answer most frequently asked questions and concerns most people have about Smartlipo.
How does LaserBodySculpting work?
This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or tube) inserted under the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, Stimulating collagen production resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
What areas of the body can be treated?
LaserBodySculpting is ideal for the neck, jaw line, back of arms, breasts, “bra fat,” abdomen, “love handles,” “saddle bags,” inner and outer thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
How does LaserBodySculpting compare to conventional liposuction?
Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, laser assisted lipolysis is often a perfect complement to liposuction.
Am I a candidate?
LaserBodySculpting is meant for areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. The perfect candidate is in good health and is disciplined in eating well and exercising.
Is there a recovery period?
LaserBodySculpting is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. You will be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise in 2 weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months. A compression garment will be worn for a short period after the treatment, depending on the body area treated. About 9 – 12 months after the treatment, a minor touch up may be needed.
What can I expect while I am in surgery?
During the course of the procedure, you will be awake and able to listen to your iPod, eat, or even sleep during the procedure. While the procedure is being done, you will be able to visually see the fat leaving your body through the suction tube, which is an amazing feeling! With the help of Smartlipo, you will be turning heads in no time!
