Questions and Answers

How Many Laser Fat Removal Treatment Sessions Are Generally Required to See Results?

This post originally appeared on Realself.com.

would just one treatment be a waste of money or would results be seen with just one? I am not overweight, I just cannot get rid of my love-handles despite diet and exercise.

Ideal laserlipo candidate
You are a great candidate for laserlipo. It works so well in the love-handle, flank area. So far all my patients have been happy with their results in this area after 1 treatment. I am aggressive in this area as it is a fibrous area so it takes time to get a great result. It may take me 1-2 hours to do a thorough sculpting in this area so pick a well qualified surgeon who is patient. Ask to see before and after photos of your surgeon's work and judge for yourself. Also be aware that laserlipo is an office procedure so there is no credentialing process. Check your surgeon's qualifications. Some unqualified doctors without extensive training in liposuction techniques can start doing laserlipo in the office as there is no credentialing process as there would be in a hospital setting. Choose your surgeon carefully and you should enjoy great results. It gets rid of that muffin top feeling in low riding pants and should be permanent.
