When it comes to shedding body fat, nothing can replace a healthy diet and regular exercise. For many people, though, even a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to lose stubborn pockets of fat in the waist, thighs, arms, or other hard-to-target areas. Fortunately, Georgia Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers laser liposuction in Atlanta – an innovative new procedure that can help eliminate stubborn body fat that diet and exercise alone cannot.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a procedure that uses a powerful laser to target stubborn sub-dermal pockets of fat in certain areas. Applied close to the skin, the laser breaks up fat cells in the treatment area, and the fluid released from the cells is then drained away by the body’s lymphatic system. The laser also affects the collagen contained in the skin around the treated area, which causes the skin to tighten over time, leading to a smoother, more toned contour. Noticeable results can be seen soon after the procedure, with best results appearing in the weeks and months following once the tissue around the treated area has time to adjust to your new contour.
Benefits of Laser Lipo Over Traditional Lipo
For most people, the most important benefit for those looking for laser liposuction in Atlanta is that, unlike traditional liposuction, laser liposuction is not invasive. It does not require general anesthesia, and you could return to normal activity in as little as 24 hours after the procedure, depending on the situation. In addition, laser liposuction doesn’t leave behind areas of loose skin after the procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate looking for laser liposuction in Atlanta will be in good general health. Laser liposuction cannot replace diet and exercise, so maintaining an active lifestyle and healthy diet is essential. Candidates should not be overweight, but rather should be looking to eliminate stubborn pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat.
Don’t let stubborn pockets of body fat stand between you and the body you’ve worked hard for and always dreamed of having. Learn more about laser lipo during a consultation at Georgia Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Marietta or Atlanta. Contact us today to book an appointment.
