After liposuction, we use laser-assisted lipolysis to stimulate the formation of new collagen and tighten the skin, as well as subcutaneous fatty tissue. A thin probe is inserted under the skin. The probe contains a laser fibre that delivers energy directly to the fat cells and the subcutaneous tissue. Tightening is primarily achieved by heating the tissue.
The great advantage of laser treatment is that the procedure is minimally invasive and is performed through the openings already present through liposuction. In addition, this procedure can achieve a tightening of the skin and tissue, which liposuction alone does not offer. For our patients, this means that a surgical tightening operation is often not necessary if the skin is more slack.
