Laser liposuction is definitely done and has long term studies to show results. It does not require multiple sittings but is more costly that iLipo. iLipo is latest technology with limited long term studies to show its results. This does require multiple sittings depending on the area and amount of fat to be dissolved. This is cheaper than Laser Liposuction.

Hope this information is helpful

Thank you for your question. Laserliposuction has more risk than regular liposuction. The increased risk is related to the laser and the potential for burns of the tissue where the laser is used. Most plastic surgeons do not recommend laser liposuction due to the increased risk of complications over regular liposuction. There is more of a chance of lumpiness following laser liposuction than regular liposuction. I am available if you have more questions.
