Laser Liposuction with SlimLipo in Houston
Laser liposuction, which also uses a cannula to remove fat, incorporates the use of a laser and can cause less pain, blood loss and bruising than a traditional liposuction procedure and can provide more selective fat removal and increased tissue tightening. When performed by Dr. Cho or Dr. Chiang, the laser probe is inserted through the incision sites and directed toward the skin layer to stimulate the cells.
In our Houston practice, we use Palomar’s SlimLipo system, a device that uses the most efficient laser technology for melting away persistent fat deposits. Not only is SlimLipo cleared procedure by the FDA for laser-assisted liposuction, it is also the first system specifically optimized for that use.
What Can SlimLipo Treat?
SlimLipo safely targets only specific fat cells that are to be removed with a laser wavelength designed to break up and “melt” these deposits. In addition to having a precise treatment tip, the SlimLipo system is flexible, making it ideal for maneuvering around the contours of varying body types.
SlimLipo may be performed on many areas of the body such as:
- Upper Arms
- Neck and Chin
Patients who undergo treatments with SlimLipo may expect less bruising and blood loss, smaller incisions and fewer contour deformities when compared to traditional liposuction. The results of your SlimLipo treatment will be slimmer, more beautiful body contours.
How is SlimLipo different from traditional liposuction?
SlimLipo uses focused laser energy to warm and melt fat cells prior to removal. This makes the fat easier to remove and results in increased patient comfort.
What areas of the body can SlimLipo liposuction treat?
SlimLipo can remove fat from nearly all over the body including the midsection, back, thighs, buttocks, upper arms and around the face.
How long is the recovery period after a SlimLipo liposuction treatment?
Most patients who have received a treatment of SlimLipo can return to their normal routine after one or two days.
