The important thing for many people to understand about laser liposuction or any method of liposuction is that it is not a weight loss strategy. It is not a cure for people who are overweight or obese and dealing with trying to lose weight. Laser liposuction is most effective for patients who are otherwise very healthy overall and just want a way to eliminate small pockets of fat that would not go away with exercise and dieting. The surgery can offer patients a way to sculpt and contour parts of their body to a level of detail that might not be possible otherwise.
The first requirement to becoming an eligible patient is overall health and weight concerns. The patient must be at least within a reasonable range of their ideal weight and in generally good health. This is for the safety of the patient to ensure they will be able to make a full recovery without significant complications. The patient must also exhibit the ability to maintain a stable weight since it can be dangerous to gain a large amount of weight after the surgery. Psychologically anyone who wants to under laser liposuction must be aware of the potential risks and side effects both positive and negative. The person must be mentally prepared to face whatever the outcome might be.
There are many trade names that laser liposuction will be performed under. It simply depends on the plastic surgeon you visit and the brand they are offering. The most popular is SmartLipo laser liposuction which seems to be synonymous with the technique for some patients. The techniques are more or less the same with slight variations in the frequency of the laser being used to avoid patent issues. Other than that the most important thing is the qualifications of the plastic surgeon and whether they are knowledgeable about the procedure they are about to perform.
