What Liposuction Can’t Do for You

by | Published on Jan 25, 2023 | Laser Liposuction

Although there are several body contouring techniques available, laser liposuction remains one of the most popular options. It utilizes laser energy to liquefy fat cells before they are removed from the body. Performed by skilled surgeons using the FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation, laser liposuction in NYC offers several potential advantages compared to traditional liposuction methods – from improved precision and less tissue trauma to faster recovery times.

The Smartlipo device employs three laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm) to liquefy fat, coagulate tissues, decrease bleeding, and tighten the skin. This minimally invasive procedure is a safe and effective way to address stubborn fat in the abdominal area, flanks hips, arms, thighs, neck, face, and ankles.

What Liposuction Can’t Achieve

Even with its enormous popularity and demonstrated outcomes, most people are still unsure of what liposuction can and cannot do. Additionally, there are many myths surrounding the procedure. If you are considering liposuction, you should be aware what the procedure cannot help you accomplish.

Here’s what liposuction cannot do:

  • Help with weight loss: Liposuction is a body contouring procedure and not a weight loss solution. It targets specific regions of fat that are resistant to exercise and diet. Although liposuction can help by shaping certain body parts, both a balanced diet and regular exercise are still necessary for long-term health and weight loss.
  • Remove stretch marks: Stretch marks are creases left on the skin following significant weight loss or pregnancy. Unfortunately, liposuction cannot remove noticeable stretch marks. In fact, liposuction could make your stretch marks more noticeable.
  • Resolve cellulite: Cellulite is caused by subcutaneous fat pushing against bands of connective tissue under the skin, resulting in those distinctive lumps and dimples. The fibrous bands that connect the fat cells in the skin and other tissues are not changed by liposuction because it can only remove soft, fatty tissue.
  • Remove excess skin: Liposuction effectively targets and removes excess fat deposits to contour the body, but it cannot address significant amounts of loose or excess skin. For individuals with loose skin, additional procedures like a tummy tuck or body lift may be necessary to achieve desired results.
