Laser lipolysis uses laser energy delivered through an applicator. The fat cells are preferentially heated and disrupted without impacting other types of cells in the skin or other structures. A common type of laser lipolysis is SculpSure.
Patients who wish to reduce a localized fat bulge of the abdomen and flanks.
Patients with loose skin or fat inside the abdomen, deep to the muscles.
The goal of laser lipolysis is to reduce the volume of fat in a fatty bulge.
This procedure is done without anesthesia.
After an assessment of the dimensions and shape of the abdominal or flank fatty bulge to be treated, the area is marked to identify the site for applicator placement. The applicator is applied, and the patient feels a cooling sensation. During the 25-minute treatment, the patient may feel intermittent warmth and/or tingling.
The complication rate is low, with reports of temporary redness, tenderness and swelling.
There are no activity restrictions or downtime. Patients sometimes feel tender or notice redness or swelling.
Results may first be visible at 6 weeks and are apparent by 3 months.
