How Long Does It Take to Recover From Laser Liposuction?

Dr.Liu -laser lypoSummer is just around the corner, and your calendar is already booked with tons of social outings. You have patio parties, baseball games, and trips to the beach to look forward to.  In fact, with everything you have planned for this Summer, you’ll barely have any downtime for yourself!

Maybe it’s your busy Summer schedule that’s holding you back from considering liposuction.  After all, you want to make sure you have time for all of these activities, PLUS your normal routine. You can’t exactly take a few weeks off to devote to recovery!

Introducing Laser Liposuction

If you’re thinking about undergoing liposuction, there is a new surgical technique that makes for a much more manageable recovery – meaning you can get back to your regular routine faster.

What makes laser-assisted liposuction different is that the laser heat energy melts the stubborn fat, which causes it to liquefy instead of using a metal cannula like in traditional liposuction which literally “bashes” the fat into smaller “chunks”. Both destroy fat which is then removed via suction technology but obviously using the laser makes the process of fat emulsification much more gentle, refined, and tolerable.

What Are the Benefits?

The benefits of laser-assisted liposuction are definitely noteworthy. Consider this:

  • Laser-assisted liposuction causes less damage to surrounding healthy tissue, meaning there’s a significant reduction in swelling and bruising.
  • Liquefying the fat cells produces more even results, thus increasing patient satisfaction.
  • The process involves less pain than traditional liposuction procedures.

With so many compelling benefits, it’s no wonder more surgeons are opting for laser-assisted liposuction!

What’s the Recovery Like?

Because laser-assisted liposuction involves less trauma to the treatment area, there’s minimal swelling and bruising.  In fact, patients only have to take a couple of days off of work to recover from the procedure, which is far less than the standard two weeks associated with traditional liposuction. Following the initial procedure, you will need to wear a compression garment for up to three weeks.
