What is the purpose of the laser in liposuction? Does it must make the fat easier to remove?
Laser liposuction is used just like traditional liposuction only the downtime following the procedure and the discomfort of the procedure is significantly less than traditional liposuction. The reason for this is that the laser is used to melt the fat prior to removal and then the fat can be gently removed from the locations on the body where it was treated. The trauma to the body enables the remarkable quick recovery from the laser liposuction procedure.
