Body Contouring: 5 Benefits of LaserBodySculpting
Body contouring is a term used to describe cosmetic treatments for enhancing the body’s shape by removing or reshaping skin and fat. Dr. Carlos Burnett, based in Westfield, New Jersey, uses liposculpture to hone a balanced, attractive physique for patients with an advanced method called LaserBodySculptingSM. Also known as laser lipo, this technique combines standard liposuction surgery with a laser-assisted energy treatment. Here are five ways that this type of procedure can be advantageous for patients.
- Losing Stubborn Fat
Do you have one or two “trouble zones” you always wished you could do something about? LaserBodySculptingSM is ideal for people who are already relatively slim and want to zap away resistant pockets of flab they can’t seem to lose through standard exercises routines and dieting. The treatment works on most areas of the body, including the stomach, upper arms, butt, love handles, back, and thighs. Fat deposits in select areas are liquefied and removed with a cannula through tiny incisions.
- A More Comfortable Experience
After conventional liposuction, patients typically experience some discomfort, swelling, and soreness for at least a few weeks. LaserBodySculptingSM is less traumatic, with fewer risks and an easier recovery process. It also does not require general anesthesia, so there are no after-effects associated with that type of pain management.
- Restoring the Pre-Pregnancy Body
Your body goes through dramatic transformations during pregnancy, often resulting in muscle or skin laxity and lingering fat around the breasts, stomach, and lower body. LaserBodySculptingSM is often used as a part of a Mommy Makeover to refine the figure.
- Skin Tightening
Patients who have a lot of extra, hanging skin are at a disadvantage if a body-sculpting procedure only removes fat, as the volume reduction can make the remaining loose skin appear more pronounced. However, laser liposuction can have the bonus effect of tightening skin in the treatment area. The laser energy penetrates the layers of skin and kick-starts gradual collagen production.
- Combined Body Contouring
LaserBodySculptingSM is ideal for amplifying other body procedures, such as tummy tucks, because it can enhance and refine the results. Dr. Burnett can explain on an individual basis which procedures would best complement each other to help achieve specific goals.
