Laser liposuction is a technique of liposuction that uses laser energy to blast the fat cells making it easier to suck them out. The heat applied by the laser under the surface of the skin also provides some skin tightening. This is a moderate skin tightening and can best be seen in patients who already have excellent skin quality. In patients who have either stretch marks or a lot of loose skin, the laser liposuction will not offer a significant amount of tightening.
