Laser body sculpting is a new term used to describe fat removal and skin tightening achieved with the new laser liposuction technique. I use the new Aspire® SlimLipo® laser liposuction machine made by Palomar Medical in
The term “body contouring” has been use in Plastic Surgery to refer to procedures designed to improve the general appearance of the body shape. Traditionally body contouring has been used to describe breast augmentation, tummy tuck, thigh and buttock lift and arm lift and other surgical procedures. The problem for many people, as you mention, is the scarring associated with surgery as in the tummy tuck.
With the advent and popularization of liposuction, the term body sculpting or liposculpture was used to describe the use of liposuction to improve body contour with the use of liposuction as opposed to surgical procedures which required skin removal.
While I have been reluctant to use the term body sculpture to describe some of the results achieved with traditional liposuction, the results I am achieving with the new Aspire® SlimLipo® laser liposuction unit are truly refined and worthy of the use of the term laser body sculpting.
Notice in the pictures below the appearance of the “six pack” area of the abdomen of the patient. Also notice how the waist has been sculpted by melting fat and tightening the skin. Using the SlimLipo® procedure I was able to melt fat and tighten skin so that the contour of the abdominal muscles is clearly seen after the procedure. This type of result was impossible using traditional liposuction and or abdominoplasty surgery. The term laser body sculpting certainly is appropriate in this case.
