Various Laser Treatments Available to Remove Unwanted Fat

When you have bulk fat in various parts of your body and want to get rid of them with minimum efforts, lipolysis or liposuction is the best option. Liposuction is one among the popular surgeries that helps people to achieve their dream shape when diet and exercise doesn’t help them remove fat.

Laser Lipolysis

You can start expecting your desired result in six weeks and the fat once removed will not accumulate again with proper diet and exercise plan.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

The stubborn fat in the targeted area is liquified using ultrasonic waves and then sucked out using a cannula. A surgery may be required in this procedure. The vibration involved in this process may cause severe damage to the nervous system resulting in loss of feeling. Recovery time will be shorter unless you had a treatment for large area.
