Laser liposuction is 1 of many improvements in liposuction surgery. It is 1 of the most generally done cosmetic surgery procedures in London and many other cities. Other advances involve ultrasound-assisted liposuction and water-assisted liposuction procedures such as Vaser-assisted lipo. Liposuction with laser uses laser energy and is most effective. Moreover, laser lipo London prices are very affordable. The method is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation anesthesia (depending on the amount of fat that will be removed) and on an outpatient basis.
Laser lipo London prices vary greatly. The cost depends on the extent of fat to be removed and the body area and, as well as the hospital or clinic you will have it performed. According to figures compiled by a group of laser liposuction surgeons who use various brands, some doctors charge many rates for various areas of the body, while others have a horizontal rate for each area, providing discounts as areas are added. Following are the average laser lipo London prices, although you may find fees in your area higher or lower.

After the surgery, you will likely see a better profile and silhouette in the treated areas. Results can be obvious after a week with laser lipo, while traditional liposuction can take 2 to 4 weeks. The results may be more immediate with laser lipo London prices because the fat removal is described to be less traumatic. Besides a decrease in the amount of fat, you can expect some change in skin tightness. Advocates think this a plus over conventional liposuction. It may be some weeks to months before you see the skin changes because it takes time for the body to give new collagen. It is the new collagen that provides the skin a tighter-looking look.
Bruising may be less extensive with laser lipo London prices than with traditional liposuction because lasers can thicken small blood vessels. Swelling should be expected, and your surgeon may order a compression garment be worn for a variable duration of time. You can expect to be back to your regular activities in 3 to 5 days. Strenuous activity should be put off for 3 or 4 weeks, typically. Ask your doctor for specific advice.
