A: Great question! The answer is that there is no scientific evidence that laser liposuction offers any benefits over standard liposuction. The retraction of the overlying skin has to do with its turgor rather than the instrument used to remove the fat. No matter the modality, (whether laser, vaser, smart liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction) they all produce the same results. Through small incisions a liposuction cannula is inserted and fat cells are gently removed. Liposuction is the ideal procedure for removing small localized areas of fat to create a smooth, contoured physique.
