Q: What is laser liposuction used for?
What our experts say:
I do a lot of it. I think it is the only form of liposuction that helps to promote skin tightening. We are not always sure how much tightening we are going to get, but it's more than other methods. It's great on the underarms and the periumbilical area (upper abdomen), an area that usually with traditional liposuction, laxity of skin is often a problem. I also use laser assisted liposuction (Slim Lipo by Palomar) on patients' necks who really need, but refuse to have, a facelift and I get a good result, something I would never do before there was laser lip. I get results that could not have been achieved any other way.
