Those “love handles,” “bat wings,” “muffin tops,” “saddlebags” and jowls that don’t respond to exercise and diet? They improve dramatically with greater results, minimal downtime, and less pain than traditional liposuction. Because laser liposuction™ actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging. And with laser liposuction MPX, you can experience the latest generation of laser-assisted lipolysis. This unique technology exclusively offered by Cynosure delivers the optimal blend of two laser wavelengths for fat removal, tissue tightening and safe results. laser liposuction is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck, and permanently eliminates fat.

How It Works
- Local anesthesia is used (you are awake during the procedure)
- A tiny incision is made, about the size of the tip of a pen
- The laser liposuction laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body
- The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes
- The fat cells are permanently destroyed
- The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out
- New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening
Typically, only one treatment is required for any given treatment area. Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.

Laser Liposuction FAQs
What is laser liposuction by Cynosure? laser liposuction is a medical device designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly referred to as laser liposuction. A very thin tube containing the laser liposuction laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a small incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall.
How Do I Know if Laser Liposuction is Right For Me?
The best candidates for laser liposuction are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits — such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower torso. A consultation can provide you with the best information.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?
laser liposuction is ideal for the neck, jaw line, arms, bra fat, “love handles”, post-pregnancy skin laxity, saddlebags, knees and enlarged male breasts.
What Does the Procedure Feel Like?
Because the area is anesthetized, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure but it is a mild sensation. Following laser liposuction, you may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. A compression garment is worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated and the recommendation of your physician.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
On average, the procedure will take 1.5-2 hours. This is dependent on the number of areas to be treated and the size of the areas.
Do I Have to Stay in the Hospital?
No. laser liposuction™ is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
For most patients, results are achieved in just one laser liposuction™ treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.
How Long Do the Results Last?
laser liposuction™ permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to enjoy long-lasting results.
Will There Be Scarring?
The incision site will be very small. With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable. Your physician is best to evaluate your skin type and provide you information.
What’s the Recovery Time?
This procedure is a minimally invasive, requiring only local anesthesia. Some bruising can occur, but you will be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.
How Much Does Laser Liposuction Cost?
The average cost is $2,000-$6,000 depending on the number and site of areas to be treated.
