Can i use a laser lipo machine if i have had previous abdominal surgery?

Yes, laser liposuction can be performed on the abdomen after a tummy tuck. In my office, I have treated several patients who have undergone a tummy tuck, but due to complications or weight gain after treatment, they have expressed interest in laser liposuction. However, the common concern that C-section patients have is when to undergo liposuction after delivery. Experienced liposuction surgeons recommend waiting at least 6 months after delivery to receive body contouring treatment.

This is because after cesarean delivery, the body, especially the abdominal area, undergoes numerous changes. Surgeons recommend waiting at least 6 months for the body to have time to recalibrate, for the C-section scar to heal, and for the body to lose most of its weight after delivery. In fact, they say that you may need a period of exercise and diet after you've fully recovered from your C-section before considering liposuction. Laser liposuction is not a method for losing weight, but rather it helps to contour the body by eliminating small localized deposits of fat that diet and exercise cannot repair.

Your laser lipotherapist will review a complete medical and health questionnaire with you before your first treatment to make sure it's appropriate. The problem is that most doctors who use laser liposuction tend to be the least trained in liposuction techniques because they are not plastic surgeons. Although laser liposuction gives you effective results, keep in mind that you must be willing to take appropriate steps to lead a healthy lifestyle. Laser liposuction also provides less downtime than traditional liposuction, typically around two days, compared to up to 10 days of traditional liposuction.

Laser lipo is a relaxing and comfortable treatment in which the typical sensation you feel is only a slight warmth when the pads come into contact with the skin. Often, doctors who perform laser liposuction in their offices, without having to monitor the health standards found in hospitals, surgical centers, or other accredited operating rooms, are not trained in aesthetic plastic surgery. Most of these complications were due to doctors not being able to perform the procedure that best addressed the patient's concerns, so they limited themselves to treating him with a lipo laser, although that wasn't necessarily the best technique. Traditional liposuction procedures involve invasive techniques that carry certain risks, but laser liposuction provides you with a less invasive option that produces effective results.

The amount of time the procedure will take depends on the type of laser liposuction being used and the number of areas that need to be treated.
