Laser liposuction has become a popular fat removal procedure in recent years. But how much weight can you realistically expect to lose with laser liposuction? While liposuction is not a weight-loss tool, it is possible to shed a few pounds during this procedure at Triangle Laser & Aesthetic Center.
Want to take a closer look at the benefits and limitations of laser fat removal? Get an appointment with Dr. Steven Yaplee or another knowledgeable healthcare professional in Bakersfield or Delano, CA. We can offer detailed tips and advice on how to maximize your liposuction results.
What is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a procedure that breaks up and removes stubborn fat pockets from various areas of the body. When diet and exercise fail to create slimmer contours in the flanks, stomach, buttocks, and thighs, our team uses laser-assisted technology to remove fat.
Candidates for laser fat removal may target a specific area in preparation for an important upcoming event, like a wedding or reunion. Others may seek an overall toned, healthier appearance that makes it easier to work out. Triangle Laser & Aesthetic Center can provide you with an individualized plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Will laser liposuction help me lose weight?
Even though laser liposuction is not considered a weight-loss method, it is possible to lose up to 25 pounds after surgery. This number will vary depending on your starting weight, how much fat is reduced during the procedure, and if a fat transfer is performed at the same time. Our team in Bakersfield or Delano, CA can provide an accurate estimate of how much weight you could lose during an initial assessment.
Is there a way to predict the results of laser fat removal?
No one can predict the results of a liposuction procedure perfectly. However, we can provide a reasonable estimate of what your contours will look like and how much weight you could lose. Triangle Laser & Aesthetic Center offers comprehensive consultations for patients, including an overview of your personal health and body type.
It’s important to remember that laser liposuction is not necessarily designed for obese or overweight individuals. This procedure removes fat that may be too stubborn for diet and exercise alone. Our patients should continue maintaining a healthy lifestyle even after laser treatment to achieve long-term weight loss success.
What can I expect from my laser liposuction procedure?
The goal of laser fat removal is to minimize discomfort and downtime as much as possible. Our team begins by inserting a very small cannula beneath the skin, which loosens fat before it is carefully extracted from the body. Based on your body contouring goals, the fat may be processed and injected into areas like the face or breasts for a voluminous look. After the procedure, we provide post-treatment instructions to ensure recovery is safe and successful.
