Laser liposuction – more accurately known as laser-assisted liposuction – is the procedure that uses laser technology for removal of excess fat on certain areas of body. The procedure is less invasive and is performed either under local anesthesia or sedation depending on the amount of fat to be removed. In the procedure, laser is used to liquefy the fat by heating it and it becomes easy to remove it. This fat is then sucked out through small cannula inserted in the targeted area through small incisions. Besides removing excess fat, laser also improves the production of collagen.
