Liposuction Philadelphia What to Expect

Getting the body you want is relatively easy with laser liposuction. Whether you want to get back to your pre-pregnancy shape or get rid of stubborn bulges, that just won’t go away, we can help.

For the SmartLipo procedure, our doctor will make a small incision, about 1 to 2 mm incisions, in the area to be treated. A very small cannula (tube) containing a laser fiber is gently inserted into the skin. The cannula is then moved in a back and forth “fanning” motion that delivers laser energy directly to fat cells – causing them to burst as they come in contact with the laser fiber.

The resulting melted fat is then gently suctioned out of the body. The heat emitted from the laser immediately coagulates the underlying blood vessels – resulting in less bleeding, swelling, bruising, and a faster recovery time for the patient. Surrounding tissues are also tightened as part of the thermal heating and coagulation process.

Liposuction Philadelphia FAQs

Is laser lipo right for me?

Laser liposuction is an excellent treatment for a wide range of men and women who are in good health and within 25lbs. of their ideal weight.
These patients often have one or more body areas of local fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. With any cosmetic procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations. Our doctors will consult with you before the procedure to make sure laser liposuction is right for you and to give you an idea of what your individual results will be.

How much fat will be removed?

Laser liposuction can remove over a gallon of fat (about 10lbs) in a single session. You can expect 50–80% of the fat that you can pinch in an area to be removed in one treatment leaving you with a slimmer, more youthful body contour. Although your body will continue to age, results are permanent as long as your weight remains stable.

Will liposuction get rid of cellulite?

Laser lipo provides a unique advantage and may improve cellulite, which is often made worse by traditional liposuction methods. The SmartLipo laser stimulates collagen production for up to three months post treatment. As collagen grows, the overlying skin tightens. Other therapies may also be useful in treating cellulite in combination with liposuction. We can discuss these options at your consultation.

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost of laser liposuction depends on several factors:

  • How much fat needs to be removed
  • How many treatment areas are needed
  • And which type or types of treatment will be used for your procedure

We offer Free Consultations for laser lipo patients. During your consultation ask about any special offers we may have or discounts for multi-area treatment. We also offer interest free financing options for qualified patients.

How many treatments will I need?

For most patients, only one laser lipo treatment is required. The sessions last approximately one hour per treated area.

Will laser lipo treat larger areas of fat?

We offer four liposuction options: SmartLipo, VASER LipoSelection, Custom Acoustic Liposuction and Body-Jet Liposuction. These procedures can be used alone or in combination with one another to get rid of large areas of accumulated fat. Using multiple advanced technologies allows for maximum skin tightening and volume reduction with no additional risk or downtime.

Are there any contraindications to treatment with laser lipo?

Patients should be in overall good health and must complete an examination and consultation prior to treatment. Things that would exclude you from treatment are:

  • Significant systemic illness or infection to the area of treatment
  • Medical history for occult systemic illness
  • Pregnancy or recent pregnancy within the last 3 months
  • Recent abdominal surgery or disorders of the lower abdomen (i.e. hernia, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, spastic colon etc.) This applies to patient desiring abdominal contouring.
  • Or history of: Thrombophlebitis, acute infections, heart failure, intolerance to anesthesia, allergy to lidocaine or epinephrine, keloid scar formation, poor wound healing
