Dr. Maercks is the only plastic surgeon to offer laser liposuction in Miami. This advanced procedure is preferred by those who want to remove small areas of excess fat without extensive downtime.
Can laser liposuction be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Laser liposuction is often combined with other cosmetic procedures like a tummy tuck and/or male breast reduction for optimal results.
Does the fat ever come back?
Fat removed by laser liposuction does not return; however, if you gain a considerable amount of weight later on in life, that new fat may develop and appear in different areas of the body, resulting in new problem areas. If you’re going to undergo laser liposuction, it’s important to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet to maintain your results.
Is laser liposuction safe?
Laser liposuction is very safe when performed by a licensed and experienced doctor. Laser lipo is more gentle than traditional liposuction, and can be performed with local anesthesia (you’re awake) instead of general anesthesia (you’re asleep).
What risks are involved with laser liposuction?
Working with a certified and experienced laser liposuction professional will greatly minimize the potential for any risks, but possible complications include infection, skin necrosis, dimpling, lumpiness, numbness, scarring, discoloration, sagging skin, discomfort, and burning of the skin.
