Laser Liposuction: Side Effects, Results and Recovery

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, the procedure is only one part of the elements involved that you need to consider. The other is your recovery. The side effects and recovery will have the biggest impact on your schedule post-procedure, so it is important to be informed about what is involved.

When considering the various liposuction options that can help sculpt your body to create a desirable aesthetic, many people think of the traditional ‘vacuum’ liposuction. Laser liposuction has seen a rise in popularity as it offers a way to target fatty deposits in the body with laser technology offering a way to change your shape without undergoing surgery.

Read on to learn more about the side effects, results and recovery time from the experts at laser liposuction in Melbourne, Chelsea Cosmetics.

What to expect from laser liposuction

Laser lipo is a body sculpting method that is minimally invasive as it does not require a large incision. It facilitates collagen during the procedure, which helps your body’s ability to create a youthful ‘tautness’ in the skin. This means less sagging and reduced bruising.

Above all, laser lipo offers a shorter downtime requirement when compared with traditional liposuction. Chelsea Cosmetics offers laser liposuction in Melbourne with a technology called SlimLipo™ and is home to Dr Mark Attalla, one of Australia’s first to perform the procedure.

Laser Liposuction results are dependent on your unique physiology. An initial SlimLipo consultation will assess your body type to ensure the procedure is the best option for you. See our before and after gallery for a clearer idea of what to expect from the procedure.

What to expect during laser liposuction recovery including side effects

SlimLipo offers a short recovery period that can be as little as 24 hours. This allows you to tone troublesome areas of your body with minimal disruption to your schedule.

This is achieved by using incredibly small incisions along with advanced laser technology, minimising damage to the tissues surrounding the treatment area. The use of the laser also reduces the risk of bleeding and infection, meaning there are little to no postoperative complications or adverse side effects.

At most, some expected laser liposuction side effects include bruising and swelling as a result of the treatment. The amount will vary for every patient and influence your recovery time, but it is all normal and no cause for concern. Swelling can last around one to two weeks or up to three months in extreme cases. When the swelling is completely healed, your SlimLipo results will be truly evident.
