Laser Liposuction in McAllen, TX

“Model. Not an actual patient.”

With laser liposuction, the benefits of laser treatments are combined with the body-sculpting abilities of liposuction. RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center offers laser liposuction to women and men living in McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, Brownsville, and all of South Texas.

What is Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction uses laser energy to assist in the removal of fat and enhance skin tightening in the areas treated. The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short), which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center , we use the SmartLipo system for laser liposuction. This is a small, high-powered laser that directly targets fat to sculpt and tighten areas of the body that are difficult to target with other treatments.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive laser liposuction method that permanently eliminates fat. This is the recommended method of laser liposuction because it offers faster treatment, faster recovery, and smoother results.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction enables us to minimize any visible scarring and ensure the smoothest possible results. An additional benefit is that the laser energy stimulates increased collagen and skin tightening for months after the procedure. The increased collagen produces further skin tightening that continues for three to six months after the liposuction procedure. This results in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals. Laser liposuction is an optimal treatment for delicate regions.

How is Laser Liposuction Performed?

Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that only requires local anesthesia. During treatment, the small SmartLipo laser device is inserted into the treatment area where it destroys fat cells and gently suctions them out. The laser energy helps prevent dimpling and sagging skin that often occurs due to traditional liposuction.

How is Recovery from Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction is gentler and less invasive than traditional liposuction, significantly accelerating recovery time. We recommend that patients get a full day or two of rest, and most patients are able to return to work after this time. Some patients will experience swelling for up to a week after treatment, after which they will be able to resume all normal activities.

How Much Does Laser Liposuction Cost?

To determine the cost of your laser liposuction, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.

Our patients find laser liposuction to be a very satisfying procedure that effectively removes unwanted fat while tightening the skin.
