Cold Laser Liposuction: Where the Fat REALLY Goes

September 25, 2013

Liposuction-Where-the-Fat-GoesWe have all heard of laser liposuction and how it can transform your body, but have you ever wondered where the fat really goes?

Here at DreamBody Medical Centers, we proudly offer the most advanced form of Cold Laser Liposuction to our patients. This form of liposuction is so advanced and so safe, it is actually minimally invasive, meaning it can safely and easily be performed right in our office without general anesthesia. This cuts the entire liposuction process down in time, including procedure and recovery time.

So, where does the fat really go?

The scientific answer: The cool laser is used externally on the patient’s body prior to the procedure in order to soften the fat cells and allow them to release the lipids that are trapped inside. This makes the removal of the fat much easier, providing more even and smooth results when the doctor removes the fat cells.

Now for the simplified answer: The doctor takes the cool laser externally to your body so that the fat cells in the area being treated are softened. Softening the fat cells in advance makes it so that the doctor can remove those fat cells much easier, and much more smoothly. The fat cells are then liposuctioned out.

Once the fat is suctioned out of your body, those fat cells are gone forever. There are a number of liposuction myths circling the web, but the reality is that once you have those fat cells suctioned out through the process of Cold Laser Liposuction, those fat cells can never return.

This is not to say that new fat cells cannot form in the area(s) treated, but if you were to gain the weight back, it would be more proportional to your body, and not to the same extent that once existed.

Cold Laser Liposuction shows immediate results, making it one of the most popular weight-loss treatments on the market. While this treatment is minimally invasive, you can still expect to have some minor bruising and swelling after the procedure, though as the swelling diminishes, you will quickly see the results unfold.
