ProLipo PLUS™ vs. Liposuction Posted August 03, 2016 in Body Treatments, ProLipo PLUS™ For years, liposuction was the go-to method for body contouring to eliminate unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Today, there are multiple methods for toning and slimming the body. ProLipo PLUS™ is a highly successful body contouring treatment offered by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr. Below is an explanation of how ProLipo PLUS™ compares to traditional liposuction and why this procedure may be even better for your needs. Traditional Liposuction With the traditional liposuction procedure, the surgeon uses suction technology to suck out the unwanted fat cells through a thin tube called a cannula. The surgeon makes incisions in the target area, inserts the cannula, and suctions out the fat cells. This procedure is quite effective at removing fat but can have a limited treatment area and long recovery period. ProLipo PLUS™ The ProLipo PLUS™ is a high-powered laser system that achieves fat removal through minimally invasive laser-assisted lipolysis. This system focuses laser energy through a thin fiber directly into the fatty area, causing the fat to melt away. The heat from the laser does not harm the surrounding tissues; rather, it causes them to tighten and firm so that the target area appears even more toned and slim after treatment. The Benefits of ProLipo PLUS™ As an internationally respected aesthetic dermatologist, Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr. has a thorough understanding of the benefits of the innovative ProLipo PLUS™ technique. He uses the ProLipo PLUS™ laser system with its dual wavelength capability to provide highly customized body sculpting treatments. The full benefits of the ProLipo PLUS™ can only be attained when the treatment is performed by expert hands like those of Dr. Bitter. More Treatment Areas: The ProLipo PLUS™ can remove unwanted fat from anywhere on the body. Some of the most popular treatment areas include the neck, abdomen, upper arms, back, thighs, knees, ankles, love handles, under the chin, and “bra bulge.” Customizable Treatment: With dual wavelength capability, this flexible technique can be customized for minimal treatment to advanced, rapid treatments. This customization is especially beneficial in treating areas with fat deposits that are fibrous or difficult to reach. Skin Tightening: The ProLipo PLUS™ laser system heats the tissues to both remove fat and improve skin laxity and tone.
