Candidates for ProLipo™
Patients who have looseness of skin overlying the area to be treated with liposuction are good candidates for ProLipo™. Certain body areas in which maximal tightening (contraction) is needed after liposuction is best treated with ProLipo™ laser assistance. These areas include the upper arms, the lower abdomen, the anterior (front) thighs and in some cases, the neck.
Best Treatment For:
- Upper Arms
- Lower Abdomen
- Inner and Anterior (front of) Thighs
- Male Breasts
ProLipo™ laser-assisted liposuction is a great alternative to tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
*Individual Results May Vary
ProLipo™ is a laser system that is used to deliver optimal laser energy to the fat layer immediately prior to liposuction. After the area to be treated is gently numbed with tumescent local anesthetic, a tiny fiber optic cannula is introduced into the fat layer. The laser energy is delivered through the fiber and is evenly distributed throughout the treated area.
ProLipo™ is painless because the area to be treated has been gently numbed with tumescent local anesthetic.
The downtime (recovery period) after ProLipo™ laser-assisted liposuction is only a few days.
