Laser Liposuction in Miami, FL

Body contouring is more successful with laser liposuction from Dr. Maercks. This procedure is preferred for those who want to remove small areas of excessive fat without the required downtime associated with other procedures. Dr. Maercks liquefies fat with a laser assisted liposuction device. Fat is more easily removed with this procedure, and Dr. Maercks is the only plastic surgeon to offer it in Miami.

Ideal Patients

Those within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight that are in good physical health benefit most from laser assisted liposuction. This procedure eradicates persistent body fat from areas that are constantly troublesome to the patient. The most common areas for laser liposuction are:

  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Chin/Neck

Laser liposuction is often combined with other cosmetic procedure like tummy tucks and male breast reduction for ideal results.

How it Works

This procedure is not recommended for obese patients and is not a viable weight loss method. Dr. Maercks uses specialized tools to make tiny incisions, and a thin tube is inserted that suctions and removes fat. Fat is broken up by the laser and is easier to remove. The underlying tissue is also heated, allowing for mild skin tightening.

After the Procedure

Every patient is different, but many deal with minor discomfort after the procedure. In order to counteract the discomfort, a local anesthetic is often used. Patients are awake during the procedure and minimal recovery time is necessary.
