Do you use lasers with your liposuction? I imagine that there is less bruising and swelling. Is this procedure done under any anesthesia? Is it good for treating facial areas?
I use the Palomar SlimLipo laser system for laser liposuction. There is significantly reduced bruising with the SlimLipo laser compared to traditional liposuction. The SlimLipo procedure is performed under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation. The laser is gentle enough to use on the face and can be used to reduce excess fat of the neck, jowls, and face. Also, because the SlimLipo laser energy can also tighten the skin, the laser is effective in tightening the facial skin to a moderate degree avoiding the need for additional surgical procedures in many cases.
