I’ve heard of weekend liposuction procedures. What do these entail? Do they use a laser and can you really recover after just a weekend?
Although I do not like to use terms like “weekend liposuction”, the fact is that laser liposuction can truly be performed on a Friday and you could return to work on Monday. You will definitely be somewhat sore and you will be given strict insuructions to follow to maximize your potential for healing. Laser liposuction uses laser energy to melt fat and tighten the skin. The liquified fat is gently suctioned from the areas where the laser liposuction procedure was performed. The recovery from laser liposuction compared to traditional liposuction surgery is significantly less time and discomfort as the fat is melted rather than avulsed in order to achieve the liposuction results.
