Laser Lipo

Liposuction is now being done with the aid of a laser. Louisville Liposuction has been traditionally performed using the superwet or tumescent technique. Now laser technology is being introduced.

The laser shoots out the end of the liposuction cannula. A typical cannula is a hollow metal tube that is 2 or 3 mm in diameter. The laser serves to help break down the fat and more importantly to heat up the tissue, including the skin, to produce better skin retraction and tightening.

The technology has been around for a few years so the jury is still out on its advantages vs traditional liposuction.
