Liposuction is known for its efficacy and versatility, and now this popular treatment has been made even better. With laser liposuction at Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, patients can enjoy the combined benefits of laser technology and liposuction. We offer this treatment to residents of Washington, DC, Arlington, and nearby communities in Maryland and Virginia from our offices in Vienna, Woodbridge, and Rockville.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction uses traditional liposuction (LINK) techniques combined with laser technology to make the liposuction treatment safer, more comfortable, and more effective. Laser energy helps melt fat, making it easier to remove it from the body. It also creates a skin tightening effect that helps further contour the body and improve results. Just like traditional liposuction, laser liposuction can be performed nearly anywhere on the body.
How Much Does Laser Liposuction Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of laser liposuction will vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. We offer flexible financing options to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Laser Liposuction Procedure Like?
The laser liposuction treatment is performed much like a traditional liposuction treatment. A cannula, or small tube, will be inserted into the desired treatment area, where it will vacuum out unwanted fat. Laser energy will simultaneously be delivered to fat in this area, causing it to break down. This combination allows us to remove fat more quickly and more easily than with traditional liposuction techniques. As a result, smaller and fewer incisions are necessary. This also makes the treatment more comfortable for the patient.
What is Recovery like Following Laser Liposuction?
After your laser liposuction procedure, there is considerably less downtime than with traditional liposuction. Patients are typically able to resume work and other activities within a few days of treatment. Still, we recommend that patients avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for at least a month to ensure that the body can heal properly.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Liposuction?
After your laser liposuction treatment, you will notice results immediately. These results will improve as any swelling subsides and the skin-tightening benefits of treatment take effect. The results from laser liposuction can be long-lasting since they permanently remove fat cells from the body. However, future weight gain can detract from your results. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits to make their results last as long as possible.
With laser liposuction, patients can enjoy the phenomenal benefits of liposuction in addition to a quicker and more comfortable recovery time.
