Laser lipolysis, commonly known as ‘laser lipo’, is a non-invasive lipo sculpture procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat such as saddlebags, love handles and double chins. It can effectively reduce areas of fat resistant to diet or exercise with fewer side effects than traditional procedures such as liposuction. The procedure uses a laser to effectively ‘melt’ unwanted fat on the body and then allows body to metabolize the melted fat .
Am I a Candidate for Laser Lipolysis?
Anyone who has unwanted, stubborn areas of fat may be a candidate for laser lipolysis. The ideal candidate should be at, or close to, their healthy body weight and have realistic expectations of what the treatment can achieve. People who have a significant amount of weight to lose or are obese are not suitable for this treatment as it is designed to contour and shape the body rather than provide significant weight loss. Pregnant women are also not suitable for this treatment. The best way to find out if you are a suitable candidate for laser lipolysis is to book a consultation with a doctor or surgeon who is experienced in the treatment.
