What is Laser Fat Removal?

Laser fat removal is performed at Skintology MedSpa on both men and women to eliminate unwanted fat in the body.  SculpSure is an advanced form of laser-generated heat that destroys fat cells after passing through the skin without any effect to the epidermis.

What is SculpSure Used to Treat?

There are several areas our SculpSure experts can provide treatment for based on your individual needs and aesthetic goals:

  • Chin – Your chin, neck, or jowls can accumulate fat due to age, genetics, and weight, and this fat rarely goes away with exercise or dieting. Laser fat reduction can give you back a clean, smooth, and well-defined jawline.
  • Arms – The skin on your arms loses elasticity and begins to sag as you age. Laser fat removal is a safe and effective way to reduce this sagging and improve your appearance.
  • Abdominal Area – You may accumulate fat in your abdomen over time due to aging, pregnancy, weight gain, or other factors.  SculpSure can help reduce your abdomen fat and remove the paunch that dieting and exercising has difficulty reducing.
  • Hip and Buttocks –  SculpSure can reduce the bulges that stand out through your hip and buttock area when you wear more form-fitting clothing.
  • Thighs – Laser fat removal helps reduce fat from both the inner and outer thighs so that your thighs no longer show up on the fabric of your pants when you walk.
  • Bra rolls —  Laser fat removal at Skintology MedSpa by Dr. Jennifer Walden can help reduce the fat in these areas of the body to create a more toned, healthier appearance and help reduce the embarrassment and uncomfortable nature of prominent bra rolls.

Laser Fat Removal FAQs

Laser liposuction is a non-invasive treatment to remove body fat. Laser liposuction uses lasers to break of fat before it is removed from the body via gentle suctioning, removing the need for more invasive surgical procedures or harsh suctioning.

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • More gentle suction than traditional liposuction
  • Stimulates the production of collagen, making the skin more taunt
  • Safe and effective way to target small areas of body fat
  • Less down time

On average, a laser liposuction procedure takes two to three hours.

Laser liposuction is minimally invasive. While you will need to rest following your procedure, you should be able to return to your normal activities the next day. You may experience pain or soreness for a few days following your procedure. We recommend that you avoid high-impact exercise and wear a compression garment for a few weeks.

You can expect to see visible results within a few days, and continuing improvement for up to six months following your procedure.

Ideal candidates for laser fat removal are patients who are in overall good health, non-smokers, and looking to eliminate a certain amount of fat from specific areas of their body like the arms, chin, or thigh area. Patients who are overweight or have loose skin may not be suitable for laser fat removal, as it is not a weight loss treatment.

If you have an underlying medical condition, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or liver disease, laser fat removal may not be suitable for you. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, we recommend waiting until after childbirth to undergo a body sculpting procedure.

Just like any other fat elimination treatment, laser fat removal does come with a few risks that patients should be aware of before committing to their procedure. While side effects such as swelling, redness, and bruising are normal and will disappear within time, other risks such as scarring, discharge from the treated areas, pain, excessive bleeding, and severe swelling that does not disappear may occur.

However, Dr. Jennifer Walden, a board-certified plastic surgeon, takes great care to provide high-quality, safe treatment for all patients. Under her care and expertise, patients can expect to manage their side effects and avoid potential risks easily.

For most patients, laser fat removal is not an overly painful procedure due to the local anesthesia they will receive before treatment. Although the patient will be awake during the procedure, treated areas will remain numb to prevent any pain or discomfort. 

During recovery, patients may feel discomfort, pain while moving, and swelling. Within several days, these side effects will improve.

When your fat cells are destroyed in laser fat removal, they are permanently removed, making the results from your treatment long-lasting. However, patients should remember that the appearance of their results may change when gaining or losing a significant amount of weight. 

To maintain your contoured and sculpted results, stick to a balanced diet and exercise routine that allows you to maintain a stable weight.
