Laser liposuction is the most advanced form of liposuction available today, offering many benefits over traditional liposuction procedures. If you are considering liposuction, you may wonder whether you are a candidate for this variation on the procedure. The good news is patients who are good candidates for liposuction are also good candidates for laser liposuction.

This page contains some basic information about who is a good candidate for laser liposuction, but the only way to know for sure if you are a candidate is a consultation with one of our doctors. Please call (888) 610-3133 or email JUVA Skin & Laser Center today to schedule a consultation at our central Manhattan office.

The Ideal Candidate for Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is an advanced form of liposuction that is actually safer than traditional forms of the procedure. Our experience with SmartLipo, the leading name in laser liposuction, is that it gives great results and rarely results in any complications.

However, reducing the risk of complications also depends on the proper selection of candidates. The ideal candidate for laser liposuction is:

  • At or near their target weight
  • Has had a stable weight for six months or more
  • Is in good general health
  • Is not taking medications that may increase risks
  • Understands the procedure, including its risks and benefits
  • Has realistic expectations for results

Even if you do not meet all the above characteristics, you may be a good candidate for laser liposuction.

Your Weight

Laser liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It's a body contouring procedure, designed to target stubborn fat deposits. Many people reach their goal weight but find they are still unhappy with their figure, and liposuction can help them achieve the figure they desire.

Your Health

People in good general health experience fewer liposuction risks than people with pre-existing conditions, especially cardiovascular conditions. Some medications may also put you at an increased risk.

Before your laser liposuction procedure, it is crucial that you speak with us honestly about your medical history.

Your Expectations

To get the best laser liposuction results, you have to have realistic expectations about what they might be. Unrealistic expectations may lead to disappointment even with very good results.

To make sure you have realistic expectations, it's important to research the risks and benefits of SmartLipo and look at our Before and After Gallery to get an idea about the type of results you might be able to experience.
