In the world of beauty, Laser Liposuction is often referred to as the magic solution to any weight loss problem and an easy way to get rid of unwanted fat. However, many are still unsure if this procedure is the right one for them because of countless myths spreading around. Thus, making them confused more than ever of what Laser Liposuction truly is, and what it can do. Worry no more! Here we busted 5 common myths on Laser Liposuction!

Myth #1: Liposuction is for obese people

Truth be told, the best candidates for Laser Liposuction are actually individuals in good health and are not more than 30% above their ideal body weight. These are people committed to making a healthy lifestyle change and do not depend weight loss on this procedure alone. They are concerned about removing stubborn fats in problem areas such as in the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, arms, wings, and back. Simply put, Laser Liposuction works best in contouring the body shape that you want, that any exercise, diet, or Radio Frequency treatments cannot do.

Myth #2: Laser Liposuction is NOT surgery

There are other non-surgical fat removal treatments but Laser Liposuction isn’t one of them. It is a surgical procedure, one that is done under twilight sedation and lasts for 2 to 4 hours, depending on the area being treated. Belo uses state-of-the-art Liposuction technique called Smart Lipo, which originated from Italy. It uses a long pulsed, Neodymium: YAG laser system. It is a new-generation procedure which enables to treat body adiposities through the laser’s ability to dissolve or liquefy unwanted body fat with heat, and making suction easier after. The heat generated by the laser also helps stimulate contraction of the overlying skin for better tightening and contouring.

Myth #3: Only women need Laser Liposuction

Of course, men also desire to have that well-sculpted body just like any woman! In fact, Laser Liposuction is significantly increasing popularity amongst men. Surprising, huh? These are patients who are close to their ideal weight, but still need a little push – in this case Laser Liposuction – to achieve their dream body, one that is free of stubborn fat deposits on their abdomen or love handles.

Myth #4: The result of Laser Liposuction is permanent

In our make-believe world, Laser Liposuction seems to be the best solution so we can continue eating all the junk food we like, live a sedentary life and not get back to our fatty selves anymore! That’s the ultimate dream, right? But the truth is, no procedure in this world can do that for you. To maintain your ideal weight and make the result last after Laser Liposuction, there should be a continuous effort on your part.  The localized fatty deposits that existed prior to the procedure can no longer balloon out of proportion to the surrounding areas, but it can go to the remaining fat cells in other parts of the body. So don’t stop eating a balanced, healthy diet and go have an active lifestyle. These lifestyle changes can go a long way in making your result long lasting!

Myth #5: Liposuction will get rid of cellulite

Liposuction is not a treatment for cellulite. Although many patients notice an improvement in the appearance of cellulite after the fat cells are removed, some would say it is more evident. Belo offers several treatments, such as Venus Freeze, to further aid in the reduction of cellulite.
