The Benefits of Using Laser Liposuction for Slimmer Legs

SmartLipo™ is a great way to target unwanted fat deposits in the legs. It is minimally invasive and will leave behind very little scarring. The benefits of using laser lipo for slimmer legs include:

  • Precise results: Laser leg liposuction allows the surgeon to target the specific area you want to treat. The surgeon can sculpt and contour your legs giving them enhanced shape and proportion with greater accuracy.
  • Tightens the Skin: The laser energy will stimulate the collagen production which will help tighten the skin and improve skin elasticity allowing your legs to look thinner and tighter.

Laser Liposuction on Legs

Leg shaping or sculpting the legs with laser liposuction can help you achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The surgeon can remove pockets of fat from specific areas in the leg including more the more delicate areas.

These delicate areas include the knees, calves, and ankles. Since these areas of the leg have a curvy anatomy, using a precise laser to remove the fat is best.

  • Ankles: Patients with “cankles”, or excess fat around their ankles, can benefit from the precise fat removal that laser lipo offers. Dr. Patel can sculpt perfect looking ankles so patient can look and feel confident in the any pair of shoes.
  • Knees: Excess fat around the knees can make you look and feel aged. SmartLipo™ can delicately remove this excess fat. Then your knees will look rejuvenated and your legs will be sculpted and toned.
  • Calves: It is difficult to lose weight in your calves if you store excess fat there. Many women get frustrated by this. Laser liposuction can remove it creating perfectly sculpted calves and legs.

Expectations after Leg Liposuction

The recovery time will vary from patient to patient. However, most people can resume normal activities within a few days to a week. You will need to avoid exercise for a few weeks.

After leg liposuction, most patients should expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. To help control the swelling and provide support, we will recommend that you wear compression garments. Your surgeon will advise you on how long to wear them.

In general, you need follow your doctor’s post-operative instructions. This will allow you to heal properly and attain the best results.

After surgery, you will notice some results right away. The final results will take a few months to fully manifest. This is because it will take a while for the swelling to fully subside and tissues to heal.
