Laser Liposuction

Written by Dr. Rokhsar

Offering Laser Liposuction to our New York Patients!

Laser Liposuction is particularly well-suited for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is often the only way to eliminate them.

While it is possible to undergo laser liposuction at almost any age, you will obtain the best results if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. When skin is inelastic, as in some older patients, it may not re-drape well and a skin tightening procedure may be necessary.

Good Candidates for Laser Liposuction

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have localized excess fat or if you desire contouring in any of the following areas:

  • cheeks, jowls and neck
  • upper arms
  • breast or chest areas
  • back
  • abdomen and waist
  • hips and buttocks
  • inner and outer thighs
  • inner knee
  • calves and ankles

What Can Laser Liposuction Treat?

Laser Liposuction may sometimes be used to treat a condition called gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, which frequently occurs among both teenage and adult males.

Laser Liposuction should not be considered a substitute for overall weight loss, nor is it an effective treatment for cellulite, a condition that gives the skin an uneven, dimpled appearance. Alternative treatments may be considered, in some instances, to improve this problem.

Laser Liposuction can be performed on several areas of the body at the same time, and it can also be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
