Laser liposuction in a NYC plastic surgery facility is an ideal option to get rid of stubborn fat and achieve a toned, well-shaped physique. Plastic surgeons who are specially trained to perform the procedure using the Smartlipo Triplex workstation can efficiently remove the excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The laser energy liquefies fat and also tightens the skin, offering great aesthetic outcomes in minimal downtime. One question that most patients ask is how many treatments would be needed to achieve the desired results.
Generally speaking, just one treatment of laser lipo would be sufficient to see visible results. However, this also depends on certain factors. First, you should be the right candidate for the treatment. This means you should:
- Be in good health
- Be close to your ideal weight
- Have mild to moderate skin laxity
- Have one area that needs significant but not major improvement
- Want to avoid extended downtime
- Have realistic expectations about the results
Having a skilled surgeon perform the procedure is also important for quick and attractive results. Some patients may need corrective treatment, but this is rare.
There are non-invasive body contouring procedures but several sessions may be needed to achieve the desired outcomes. However, with laser liposuction, just one treatment would be sufficient. Commonly treated areas include abdomen, neck, face, breasts, thighs, knees, arms and back rolls. For most of the candidates, noticeable improvement can be seen at 1-3 months following the procedure and the final results, at 6 months.
