how much weight can you lose with laser lipo

Is there a limit to how much fat laser liposuction can remove?

One day, you're satisfied with your appearance. The next day, you wake up and realize you're not as slim as you once were. This isn't nice for anyone, but it's especially aggravating when you've worked hard to diet and reduce weight, but a few obstinate spots refuse to respond. Fortunately, we offer laser liposuction at MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center in Milford, PA: a terrific approach to get rid of those stubborn fat cells that just won't go away.

What is the maximum amount of fat that laser liposuction can remove?

The majority of patients who receive this treatment can expect to drop about 25 pounds. For most individuals, this is the equivalent of going down a pant size, but it varies from person to person. It all depends on how your body fat is distributed and where you're getting it removed from.

What Causes Weight Loss Results to Vary?

The typical weight loss is 25 pounds, although some people can drop up to 40 pounds, while others may only lose 15 pounds. The amount of body fat you have overall, how much was eliminated by the treatment, how effectively your body responds to the treatment, and even characteristics like your age and gender all affect your personal results.

How Many Inches Around the Waist Can You Lose?

Many people are more concerned with their appearance and how they look in their clothes than with a number on the scale. For many of us, this is a positive thing. The scale can't identify the difference between fat and muscle weight, therefore the numbers on the scale fluctuate; nevertheless, inches around the waist are a great measure of true improvement.

With this lipo procedure, most people may anticipate to lose one to two inches from their waist, and if you're treating your upper arms or thighs, you can expect to lose roughly an inch from these regions as well. However, some people lose more than others. You're more likely to lose inches if you have higher body mass. According to studies, those with a high body mass index can drop five to ten inches with repeated treatments.

What Is It Like To Be Treated?

The length of your treatment will be determined by the number of regions you're having treated, the fat content of those areas, and the size of the areas. For each body part treated, the typical treatment time is roughly an hour. This means that if you're treating many parts of the body, you should set out an hour for each one.

If you're going to treat both upper thighs, plan on spending roughly two hours. The good news is that this is a non-painful and non-invasive procedure. You won't be put under anesthesia, so you won't have to wait long for it to wear off. The majority of people believe they are receiving a hot massage. After it's finished, you can return to your regular routine and activities, including driving yourself home.

How Many Appointments Will You Need to Meet Your Objectives?

The number of appointments required to bring you where you want to be is determined by three factors: fat distribution in the treated area, the size of the area, and your long-term goals. So, let's say you only want to treat a little area, such as beneath your chin or a small portion of your arms. The majority of people just require one treatment to achieve their desired results. Let's say you wish to treat an area with a lot of fat cells, such as your stomach or thighs.

In this instance, you may require multiple treatments to achieve your goals. Keep in mind that each treatment kills about a quarter of the fat cells. If you want to get rid of half of the fat cells in that location with your first treatment, you'll get half of them. However, keep in mind that your next treatment will only target 25% of the remaining fat cells, not the entire population. In this situation, you'll probably need three to four treatments to achieve your desired outcomes. When you come in for a consultation, we'll help you figure out how many treatments you'll need and create a strategy to achieve your specific goals.

When can you expect to see the results?

You'll feel better right away after your treatment, but you'll have to wait a little to see the ultimate results. The fat cells must be processed and flushed away by your body, which takes some time. Within a week, the majority of people see their initial results. You'll notice that you're slimming down, and this will last for the next four to six months.

Around the four-month mark, the best outcomes will be visible. The best part is that the results are gradual rather than abrupt, so you won't look like you've had work done. Instead, you'll appear to have dropped weight gradually through food and exercise. No one has to know you have laser lipo unless you choose to tell them, so your privacy is protected.

Will You Be Able to Put On Weight Following Laser Lipo?

Yes, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing! You wouldn't want to get a treatment that interfered with your body's normal functions. Our bodies require fat to function, and we will never be able to eliminate all fat cells from a given area. That would be unhealthy, and your body would react negatively. Although this treatment eliminates fat cells, some fat cells should remain. Those fat cells have the ability to store fat and expand. Your diet and exercise habits will determine how effective they are.

Will Fat Reappear After Treatment?

Yes and no are the answers. No, in the sense that the fat cells you've shed aren't coming back. Fat cells are distinct from other cell types. They don't regenerate, and your body stops making new ones once you've "produced" all of your fat cells (typically by the end of adolescence, if not sooner). The fat cells that were destroyed as a result of this treatment are permanently gone.

However, as previously noted, the surviving fat cells have the ability to enlarge. Diet and exercise will have no effect on these fat cells. You are unlikely to gain more than five or ten pounds in the first year or two following treatment if you consume a good diet and exercise regularly. A poor diet and lack of activity, on the other hand, may cause you to return the majority, if not all, of the weight you lost. Laser lipo can help you lose weight, but it's up to you to keep it off once it's gone!

Is There a Place to Get Treatment?

Anywhere you have enough fat to safely remove it is an excellent candidate for treatment. The following are some of the most regularly treated areas:

  • Thighs tucked under the chin
  • Breasts or chest Stomach Neck
  • Buttocks
  • Underarms
  • Hips

The stomach and thighs are the most typically treated areas, and this is because our bodies store fat here more easily than in other places.

Is there a weight that I should be at before starting treatment?

Ideal candidates have a BMI that is within the normal range, while it is OK to be somewhat overweight. Also, BMI isn't the most accurate approach to calculate body fat. It is unable to distinguish between the weight of fat and the weight of muscle, for example. Because they have so much muscle, some bodybuilders and professional athletes, for example, have "unhealthy" BMI scores!

As a result, we assess a variety of factors while determining if you're the correct weight for this treatment. We may want to look at your waist-to-hip or waist-to-height ratios, as well as other fat distribution measurements.

Isn't it true that I can't use this treatment to start losing weight?

Many people are startled to learn that procedures like laser liposuction should be used at the finish of a weight loss journey rather than at the beginning. This treatment isn't meant to take the place of a good diet and exercise routine. If your BMI is too high or your weight-to-height ratios are off, we'll advise you to reduce weight before seeking therapy.

This treatment is all about crossing the finish line; it's all about losing those last few pounds and inches, especially if they're not reacting to your exercise efforts. Because it is still possible to gain weight following therapy, it is critical that you incorporate excellent exercise and dietary habits into your daily routine before seeking treatment. You can expect the best results and keep them for a lifetime if you do it this way.

Is There an Appropriate Age to Begin This Treatment?

There are no age restrictions or limitations for seeking therapy if you are over the age of 21. All you need is enough extra weight to be able to lose some. We don't usually take age into account when assessing who is eligible for this treatment.

Is There an Appropriate Time for This Treatment?

It's best to hold off on obtaining this treatment if you haven't finished having children. Pregnancy and childbirth have the potential to sabotage your results. Furthermore, if you're trying to shed a few pounds before a significant occasion, such as a wedding or the start of beach season, keep in mind that full benefits won't be noticeable for at least four months, if not six.

It's a good idea to schedule your treatments six months ahead of time to ensure you obtain the results you want in time to flaunt! There are no constraints or "ideal periods" for this treatment other than that. It's time to be treatment if you're unhappy with your appearance.

What Can I Do to Keep My New Weight?

This treatment should be used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Make an effort to stay active by exercising for 30 minutes at least three times a week. Consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as lots of lean protein and healthy fats, while avoiding carbohydrates and sugars, particularly refined grains and starches.
