Laser liposuction is a technique used to reduce fat and tighten the skin, improving anywhere on the body where there is excess fatty deposits. It uses laser energy that has a high specificity to fat, and is able to tighten the skin by warming up the collagen from beneath the skin.

The most common areas that are treated using laser lipo in Richmond are the abdomen, neck, thighs, arms, and male chest, but this procedure can also be used to improve more fibrous areas including the flanks and bra fat. Laser liposuction is also very helpful in many revision cases where the skin has become uneven or fat is difficult to penetrate.

  • Can be performed on older patients

  • Can be performed with local anesthesia
  • Easier fat removal
  • Skin is tightened and toned
  • Even the most stubborn fat can be treated
  • Little to no downtime involved

What Happens During the Laser Liposuction Procedure?

Before your Richmond laser lipo session begins, the areas that are being treated will be marked. This will serve as a topographic map for the doctor.

Local tumescent anesthesia will be used to keep you comfortable. A small incision will be made near the treatment site, and this incision will serve to allow access for both the anesthetic and the cannula.

The cannula, which houses the laser, will be inserted to heat the fat that is being removed. The cannula moves up and down in a very gentle motion as the fat melts and collagen is stimulated. The cannula then suctions the melted fat away and out of the body.
