Laser liposuction thighs

Common Questions and Answers about Laser liposuction thighs

laser

Avatar n tn I'm wondering if newer lipo techniques ( like the one with the laser, smart lipo?) and smaller canulas might give smoother results. I'd ideally like to have lipo suction on my waist, thighs and lower legs -- but a friend who is an aesthetician says she thinks when you are 40 or older, the skin tends to look bad after lip and you don't get good results . Do you agree? Also, if I can't have lipo, I would love a thigh lift. that's my main complaint, sort of saggy, lumpy but not large thighs.
Avatar n tn I too had lumpiness/waviness from prior liposuction in my abdomen as well as my inner and outer thighs. I had a second liposuction procedure done using fat grafts attempting to correct this problem. As it made some minor improvements, I still won't expose my tummy to anyone. I'm getting lipodissolve done on Friday and am scheduled for a total of 4 sessions 8 weeks apart. They are also doing some skin tightening using a laser which will also help with the wavy appearance.
Avatar n tn It is not designed or promoted for cellulite treatment. Liposelect is a form of direct ultrasonic liposuction. Again, its use is for liposuction purposes and is not often used for cellulite. Other alternatives include repeated treatments with roller therapy over the affected areas with either vacuum suction (Endermology treatment) or in associated with low level radiofrequency therapy (Velasmooth laser system).
Avatar n tn As I have repeatedly suggested in this forum, Smartlipo is a technique of using a laser to destroy fat cell which are then removed with liposuction. I personally am quite satisfied with the results I get with traditional liposuction (I actually primarily use power assisted liposuction). At four days, it is much too early to assess the results of your procedure.
224988 tn?1208108297 Smartlipo is nothing more than a technique to assist in dissolving fat using a modified but standard Neodynium-YAG laser. The dissolved fat must still be evacuated with traditional liposuction. It is most useful in areas with very limited fat accumulation. If you need significant contouring, then using this technique may leave you quite disappointed. It will not help cellulite.
Avatar n tn I had Smart Lipo on my inner and outer thighs last week. I have a Mirena IUD and haven't had a period in months. Since I had this procedure I've been bleeding. Could the laser have something to do with this? When my Dr was doing my inner thighs, he got really close to my pubic bone and it did hurt when he pushed toward the bone. If this is a reason for my sudden bleeding I need to know for how long should this continue. Would this be like a regular period now?
Avatar n tn I just made an appointment for lipodissolve -any comments or suggestions, It is for inner & outer thighs and i am curious on how the results are and how long they take.
Avatar n tn RE: Accent Laser Treatment by Alma Lasers (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) I'm 4Real when I say "I'VE FOUND THE ANSWER FOR PEOPLE WITH MILD-MODERATE CELLULITE AND LOOSE SKIN" It's called Accent Laser Treatment. Had my 1st treatment on Friday, March 2, 2007 in Philadelphia and OMG I saw an immediate improvement. FDA approval expected any day now. There are only 90 units in the U.S. so expect to travel if you're desperate, like I was.
Avatar n tn I had it done on my abdomen and inner thighs in Bonne Terre, MO. The doctor there is offering an introdutory special at $750. per zone. I've had good results with the abs, but cannot say too much yet about inner thighs; i've only had one set of injection there so far. I have heard from others at his office (Bonne Terre Medical Associates) who have had thighs done and they have lost up to 1 inch after 2 treatments. So, I am excited.

179530 tn?1368940203 Here is some more information on the Body Brushing I mentioned. I guess the reason I initially was intrigued with this concept is because having worked with special needs kids for years, I knew that "brushing" was a soothing technique used for some of the kids. It helped in many ways. It stimulated the lymphatic system, so I was aware that it was a good thing.
Avatar n tn Does it help to wear a compression garment of some sort (like after liposuction) to prevent lumps? I'm considering Lipodissolve for my thighs, and I worry about a lot of swelling.
Avatar f tn I had it to smooth out unevenness left by liposuction done a few years ago. Lower abs, sides, love handles, hips, inner thighs (just the very top) no idea how many injections. Still pretty swollen, looks like I did before the liposuction. The cost was $600 and after what I've been reading that sounds like a good deal. Hope the swelling goes down fast, I feel like a big fat pig. Dr. didn't mark areas or use numbing stuff on me so I am curious about other's experiences.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had lipo dissolve? I had my first treatment on my inner thighs. The pain wasn't bad at all. It's the swelling and bruising that is bad. Does anyone have any advice on how to speed up the healing process? Also, when should I start to see results? I am only scheduled to have three treatments. Is the first treatment to harden the cells and then the second and third are to break them down??
Avatar f tn Anyway thats the way they explained it to me in my consultation, and by the way I was the perfect candidate because I was not over weight and I should see results by my 2nd or 3rd visit. I started with my inner thighs, outer thighs and that good ol bannana roll. I gave them a break half way through because I was so swollen and had gained over 5 lbs at this time and was told that it would be a good idea to move to another area.
Avatar n tn I am having my thighs (all the way around) and my love handles done. The thighs are being considered 3 areas and the love handles one. I am spending $3000 for 4 treatments on each area total. about my experience.... We started with the love handles. The doctor wanted me to stand up so he could see the way the fat distributed. Well...I passed out, cold. So he layed me down and I passed out again. The shots were excruciating for me and I don't think I have that low of a tolerance for pain.
Avatar f tn The problem is called large mons pubis and the solution is liposuction. It's a small procedure that takes 30 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia. Recovery takes about 1 to 2 days. It costs $3,000 to $4,000. I'm already saving money to go get it done. It will change my life completely. I hope I helped those who share the same problem.
Avatar n tn There was a thread with stlouis1here, but I think we filled the message quota. I'm 1 week in on 2nd treatment, outer thighs. They did more shots, but over a larger section. This one wasnt nearly as red or swollen as the first time. They said I should see something after this treatment, and I'm feeling quite hopeful. I go for 3rd treatment August 4th.
Avatar f tn Though I don't go completly down on my knee just enouph untill I feel the stretch the lower I got it works the but mussels the higher it works my thighs. Oh and I hold possition fo 10seconds and do this for 2 minutes and add more of these on after every week! Third step Get on my hands and knees. Put one leg out strait and lift it as high as I can and hold for 10 seconds then switch legs. I do 10 of these on each leg.
