Laser lipolysis: How to quickly get rid of fatty deposits
Hormonal disorders, nutritional imbalances, sedentary lifestyles, etc. contribute to excessive accumulation of fatty deposits. Overweight – this is not only an aesthetic problem, spoiling the appearance of a person. It is an increasing load on the joints, internal organs, and, as a consequence, the development of many diseases. It is especially difficult to get rid of accumulated fat deposits on the hips and stomach: all kinds of diet, massage, sauna, etc. help is very conditional, and adjusting nutrition together with active sports will be far not everyone. In such cases, laser lipolysis (liposuction) is an effective method for relieving excessive subcutaneous fat in the abdomen, thighs and even faces.
Liposuction and lipolysis – what’s the difference?
Liposuction is called surgery to remove excess fat in a specific area of the body surgically. This kind of correction of the figure refers to plastic surgery and has several techniques:
basic (classical technique);
The standard liposuction method is based on the fact that the adipose tissue is destroyed and removed through special cannulaes (surgical tubes) which are injected into the patient’s body (for example, in the abdominal region, through several small incisions, with the “pumping” of fat from the abdomen), connected with the special Apparatus This is the most traumatic method, therefore rarely used for it. Other methods of liposuction are less traumatic. A laser lipolysis is the least traumatic bloodless procedure that can be performed on different parts of the body.
What are the advantages of laser lipolysis?
Laser lipolysis is a bloodless (without cuts) procedure that is performed even on small areas of the body – on the face, hands, knees, and not just on the stomach or thighs. Traces or scars do not remain after the procedure on the body, the layer of fat decreases and is deduced naturally (through sweat, urine), and the next day after the procedure it is already possible to begin the habitual life. But active physical activity during the next one to two weeks is contraindicated.
The laser method is carried out with the help of a thin needle, inside it there is a cannula and a LED. With the aid of a diode beam, the surgeon acts on fatty deposits, destroying only fatty tissue. Damaged vessels at the same time are immediately burned with a ray, which eliminates bleeding. With the help of a laser, not only fat cells are burned, but also collagen fibers are compressed, thus creating a lifting effect. That is, the skin becomes more elastic and tightened. The laser lipolysis session lasts for a half hour and an hour, and this procedure is recommended for small local fatty deposits in the abdomen, shoulders, buttocks, knees, etc. With severe obesity this method of getting rid of fat does not fit.
It is important to know the patient
It is important to understand that none of the methods of liposuction, including laser lipolysis, is not a method of weight loss: this procedure does not affect the mechanism of accumulation of excess fat and the causes of their formation. Therefore, before the procedure, the doctor will explain to the patient that nutrition, lifestyle and exercise should be adjusted to fix the result and to avoid accumulation of new fat deposits.
Before lipolysis, as well as before any surgical procedure, even a less traumatic, the doctor will conduct an examination to rule out absolute contraindications: diabetes mellitus, acute and chronic infections, hypertension, viral hepatitis, etc.
