Body contouring treatments and fat removal remain extremely popular. After all, stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise are a common frustration. At the Langdon Center, Dr. Langdon specializes in low-impact liposuction procedures using advanced technology to reduce unwanted fat and rejuvenate and tighten your skin and body. One of these innovative liposuction options is ProLipo.
What is ProLipo?
ProLipo is a type of laser-assisted liposuction created by Sciton®. During liposuction, a cannula is inserted into the skin to break apart and suction out unwanted fat.

Laser-assisted liposuction options like ProLipo offer a gentler option than traditional liposuction.
ProLipo can be used to treat multiple areas of the body, including the:
Because it has both slimming and skin-tightening benefits, ProLipo laser-assisted liposuction is a great alternative to tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). Like any body contouring treatment, ProLipo is not a replacement for weight loss but can target stubborn areas of localized fat.

Its primary purpose is to liquefy the unwanted fat cells, making them easier to remove with minimal bruising. The heat of the laser also stimulates collagen production within the skin, combating skin laxity and producing a tighter, more toned look.
