The benefits of Laser Lipo versus Liposuction Surgery
Often times, as much as we make an effort to do physical activity and follow a healthy diet. There are parts of our body in which we still have fatty tissue that’s hard to get rid of. Fortunately, nowadays there are many treatments and procedures that can help those who want a positive aesthetic body change. Laser Lipo, one of the safest and most effective alternatives for the removal of fatty tissue, is now available in Puerto Vallarta at Hospital CMQ Premiere.
Hospital CMQ Premiere has the latest technology for Laser Lipo surgery, also known as Laser Liposuction or Laser Liposculpture. This surgical procedure has evolved from the traditional Liposuction surgery. Becoming one of the most popular procedures used to help patients achieve a pleasing body figure in a safe way. Laser Liposuction is a suction technique that uses a laser beam to break up fat before it’s removed from the body.
This laser technology helps avoid the use of the traditional liposuction method, in which fat is broken mechanically through friction in a more aggressive and traumatic manner. The goal of this technique is to remove specific fat deposits located in the following body parts: chin, abdomen, back, legs and arms. However, it’s important to note that a Laser Lipo is a sculpting method that helps to improve and restore a patient’s figure to its ideal silhouette, but it’s not an effective procedure for weight loss.
Laser Lipo: the ideal procedure for those who fear the operating room
Unlike the traditional liposuction method, which requires a prolonged hospital stay and general anesthesia, a Laser Lipo requires only local anesthesia and a minimal hospital stay. In addition, in a Laser Lipo there’s much less bruising, hematomas and/or pain after the surgery, and the recovery time is much quicker. After this procedure, the only post-treatment care that should be followed is the use of a compression garment, which should be used for three of four weeks (in some cases up to three months).
Benefits of a Laser Lipo versus a traditional liposuction
Before choosing the aesthetic and/or plastic surgery procedure that’s right for you, it’s important to understand the main differences between a Liposuction and a Laser Lipo:
|Traditional Liposuction||Laser Lipo|
|Anesthesia||General Anesthesia||Local Anesthesia|
|Potential Blood Loss||High risk of blood loss and tissue damage||Low risk of blood loss; no tissue damage|
|Pain||Higher post-surgical pain; Required use of painkillers to manage discomfort||Minor post-surgical pain; discomfort can be treated with rest and without painkillers|
|Risk||Risk due to general anesthesia and tissue damage||Minor risks due to local anesthesia and little to no tissue damage|
|Results||If one doesn’t follow all the necessary measures, loose skin can remain a problem||More positive patient outcomes. Less recovery time; skin becomes and remains tight after the surgery|
As we can observe in the comparison table above, a Laser Lipo has many advantages. However, the most important advantage is that it’s a minimally invasive procedure which allows for a quick and optimal recovery.
Is Laser Lipo the right procedure for you?
Despite all of the advantages that a Laser Lipo has to offer. It’s worth noting that it is not the ideal surgical technique for everyone. For example, a Laser Lipo is not the right option for people with risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension or obesity. In this sense it’s important to note that this procedure can be right for you, depending on your actual goals. For example, if your goal is to lose weight noticeably, this is not the ideal surgical treatment.
On the other hand, if your goal is to get rid of fat deposits in specific body sites in order to gain aesthetic beauty and balance. The Laser Lipo is your best treatment alternative. If this is the case, and you decide to have your Laser Lipo. Be sure to set your mind to following a healthy diet, making exercise on a regular basis and keeping a good hydration after your surgery. Following these healthy habits after leaving the hospital and in the long term will ensure that you maintain the aesthetic look and benefits of this procedure.
