Stubborn fat can prevent you from achieving a tighter and more contoured physique, despite how often you exercise and how healthy you eat. At The Youth Fountain in Freehold, NJ, we offer laser liposuction, an advanced, precision body sculpting procedure that permanently removes stubborn fat and redefines body contours. The entire process is customizable, minimally invasive, and will deliver dramatic results.
What Is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a procedure that employs all the techniques of traditional liposuction with the added assistance of a laser to improve the results both during and after the procedure. At The Youth Fountain, we use the Sciton ALLURA laser lipo device to perform these treatments.
ALLURA Laser Lipo
The Sciton ALLURA device delivers immediate body contouring results. We can use it to reduce body fat, tighten the skin, perform high-definition body sculpting, and target delicate areas with precise contouring techniques designed for challenging treatment areas.
The results are long-lasting, and there’s little to no downtime and minimal to no scarring. The device’s laser energy significantly reduces fat volume in the treatment areas while simultaneously tightening the surrounding skin, resulting in dramatic body contouring.
What Are the Benefits?
The ALLURA laser lipo system allows patients to fine-tune their physiques and achieve immediate and dramatic results. Not only are the results immediate, but they will look completely natural post-treatment. Other treatment benefits include the following:
- Minimal downtime
- Tighter skin
- Improved body contours
- Long-lasting results
- Immediate benefits
- Significant fat reduction
- Versatile treatment plans
- Precision treatment
How Does It Work?
Laser liposuction treatments are performed at our office. Patients can remain awake or sedated based on their preferences and Dr. Shakov’s recommendations. We’ll begin the process by inserting tumescent anesthesia into the treatment area through very small incisions.
Adding this fluid anesthetic medication into the incisions eliminates any pain during the procedure. A laser fiber will be inserted into the small incisions to melt and destroy stubborn fat cells, followed by a liposuction cannula to suction out the melted and broken-down fat cells. Then, to complete the procedure, we’ll use the laser fiber to tighten the skin from the inside out. Patients can expect the best results within three to six months post-treatment.
What Can It Treat?
We can use laser lipo to remove stubborn fat from the most common problem areas. Patients can treat one or multiple areas based on their needs and treatment goals. We can customize treatment plans to remove stubborn fat from the waistline, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, upper and lower back, and the area beneath the chin. We can also use the device to treat male patients who want to remove excess fat from the chest area.
What Kind of Recovery Can I Expect?
After undergoing laser lipo, you’ll need to plan on minimal downtime, so your body can heal. This treatment process only requires micro-incisions to eliminate stubborn fat, so patients can plan on very minimal downtime. Total downtime does vary based on the patient’s treatment plan, the amount of fat removed from the treatment area, and the areas being treated.
You’ll typically need several days to a week of rest, during which you’ll need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise. After a week, you can resume most normal daily activities and return to work. We recommend that patients avoid strenuous exercise for up to six weeks post-treatment to allow for complete healing. You’ll also need to wear a compression garment during the recovery process to accelerate healing and ensure the best results.
Who Is It Right For?
Men and women with pockets of stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to traditional lifestyle changes like exercise and a healthy diet make good candidates for laser liposuction. Those who don’t want to wait for the results of non-invasive body sculpting treatments but want immediate results also make good candidates.
Additionally, those who want to target loose skin resulting from fat removal and prevent skin laxity post-treatment can benefit from this particular form of liposuction. The first step in the process is a consultation with Dr. Shakov, who will discuss your treatment goals, review your medical history, and ensure that there are no contraindications that would prevent you from undergoing the treatment and that you are in good health.
Can It Treat Cellulite?
Laser lipo doesn’t treat cellulite, but we offer a cellulite reduction treatment that does. It can be added to the treatment process to meet the needs of those who want to achieve fat reduction and cellulite smoothing results. CelluSmooth is a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that can be scheduled alongside laser lipo to eliminate the textural irregularity definitive of cellulite.
We can also perform CelluSmooth as a standalone treatment without liposuction. During the treatment, a small incision will be made in the treatment area, and it will be filled with a tumescent anesthetic. The laser fiber will then be inserted into the incisions to melt fat cells and cut the fibrous bands that cause cellulite and skin dimpling. Patients can expect minimal downtime and a quick recovery.
REAL PATIENT RESULTS
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
The results of a laser lipo treatment are intended to be permanent. While the process is designed to remove a significant amount of fat from the treatment area, it does not remove every fat cell. For that reason, remaining fat cells have the potential to expand if you gain weight after your treatment. The best way to maintain long-lasting results is to live a healthy lifestyle, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and avoid significant weight gain.
