Liposuction laser therapy was first introduced by Colombian surgeon Rodrigo Neria in 1999. The one benefit of this type of treatment is that the procedure can be performed and completed in the least amount of time when comparing it to the traditional methods of liposuction. Using traditional liposuction in the fibrous fatty areas such as buttocks, back, saddlebags and a male’s chest can sometimes be a problem. However, laser liposuction excels in this area when it comes to fat reduction, because these areas are tended to faster and it is less strain and work for the surgeon. In turn, the recovery time and pain is much less for the patient.
When it comes to liposuction laser therapy the benefits outweigh the risks. If you would like to research the potential risks before undergoing this treatment you will be able to see for yourself. Some of the benefits include: fat cells are permanently removed, no weight is gained in the treated area, the body is more contoured and the body is more sculpted and slimmer. Side effects may include: bruising, infection, discomfort, scarring, nerve damage, blood clots and swelling. The list of risks is longer than the list of benefits, which is why it is important to research this type of fat reduction treatment before deciding.
The costs of the procedure will depend on where you go. It is important that when you visit clinics that you consult more than one certified surgeon. You can also ask the surgeon about their experiences and also ask to give you a few references. If your GP is recommending you are surgeon, ask your doctor about his/her reputation and also what costs to expect. There are quite a few clinics in South Africa where liposuction laser therapy is performed, but it is important that you do all the research so you know everything you need to.
