Laser Liposuction: Side Effects, Results and Recovery

Body Care, Procedures, Surgical

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, the procedure is only one part of the elements involved that you need to consider. The other is your recovery. The side effects and recovery will have the biggest impact on your schedule post-procedure, so it is important to be informed about what is involved.

When considering the various liposuction options that can help sculpt your body to create a desirable aesthetic, many people think of the traditional ‘vacuum’ liposuction. Laser liposuction has seen a rise in popularity as it offers a way to target fatty deposits in the body with laser technology offering a way to change your shape without undergoing surgery.

Read on to learn more about the side effects, results and recovery time from the experts at laser Chelsea Cosmetics.

What to expect from laser liposuction

Laser lipo is a body sculpting method that does not require a large incision. It facilitates collagen during the procedure, which helps your body’s ability to create ‘tautness’ in the skin.

Chelsea Cosmetics offers laser liposuction with a technology called SlimLipo™ and is home to Dr Mark Attalla, one of Australia’s first to perform the procedure.

Laser Liposuction results are dependent on your unique physiology. An initial consultation will assess your body type to ensure the procedure is the best option for you and you can see our before and after gallery for a clearer idea of what to expect from the procedure.

At most, some expected laser liposuction side effects include bruising and swelling as a result of the treatment. The amount will vary for every patient and influence your recovery time, but it is all normal and no cause for concern. Swelling can last around one to two weeks or up to three months in extreme cases. When the swelling is completely healed, your SlimLipo results will be truly evident.

Disclaimer: Losing weight through natural methods and regular exercise offers more health benefits compared to liposuction. We strongly encourage patients to pursue their goals using natural and healthy approaches before contemplating liposuction. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a method for weight loss; while it may result in a reduction in dress or pants sizes, the scale may not reflect a significant difference.

Also, before deciding on any treatment, it’s important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your practitioner about what to expect from the treatment and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.
