Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and remains one of the most effective ways to contour targeted areas of the body. Technological advancements, such as combining liposuction with laser energy to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, have changed the way in which this gold standard procedure is performed, resulting in a less invasive surgery and key improvements to the overall patient experience.
LipoAI is the latest technological innovation in the field of liposuction, and we’re thrilled to be among the first offices to offer this procedure to our patients. Using laser energy and AI (artificial intelligence), LipoAI offers multiple body contouring solutions within one device and one procedure. It’s a safe and effective procedure for targeting fat in the treatment area (accessed through a small incision) and tightening the skin. LipoAI is a safe, minimally invasive, and FDA-approved procedure that’s a great alternative to traditional Liposuction.
Benefits of LipoAI
LipoAI is the only body contouring device that utilizes artificial intelligence, making it the most intelligent and advanced laser-assisted lipolysis system available. It uses a targeted laser wavelength to melt fat cells (which are then removed from the body) and to stimulate collagen and tighten skin, resulting in smoother, tighter contours. Compared to other technologies, LipoAI is able to target fat cells in a more precise and efficient manner, creating an improved patient experience overall: less bruising, minimal pain, and a shorter recovery time.
LipoAI is a great solution for treating all areas that require skin tightening and/or fat removal. Its precision and control allow for the treatment of smaller and difficult-to-treat areas that can be a challenge with traditional liposuction or other liposuction devices.
What is LipoAI?
LipoAI is a minimally invasive body contouring device used for fat reduction and skin tightening in the targeted treatment area. LipoAI is a form of laser-assisted lipolysis, one of the proven body contouring methods and an alternative to traditional Liposuction.
How Does LipoAI Work?
LipoAI uses a patent-pending laser technology that delivers energy directly into the fat layers underneath the skin’s surface through a 1-2 mm incision. The laser energy heats up and destroys the fat cells in the treatment area, which are then removed from the body through suction and/or natural bodily processes. The same laser energy also helps create new collagen, resulting in a skin-tightening effect along the treated areas.
What makes LipoAI unique is the use of artificial intelligence. This allows LipoAI to work with your surgeon to ensure a safe & efficient destruction of fat during the procedure.
How Does LipoAI Differ From Liposuction?
LipoAI is like liposuction in that fat cells are removed from the body. However, because LipoAI melts the fat cells first, they are more easily suctioned, which leads to a smoother recovery process and less downtime (for some smaller treatment areas such as the neck, suction may not be necessary post-LipoAI, as the fat will be naturally processed out by your body).
Another major benefit of LipoAI is the skin tightening effect thanks to the laser energy, which you would not get with traditional liposuction.
Compared to other energy-based lipo devices, LipoAI is the most effective at achieving skin tightening and fat destruction at the same time. It’s also the only intelligent body contouring device available.
Procedures can be performed in the office, further increasing the range of options available to the surgeon.
How long does a LipoAI Procedure Take?
There are many factors that determine the length of a LipoAI procedure: your surgeon, the type of anesthesia, and how many treatment areas, but mainly the size and type of treatment area. Smaller areas like the submentum (neck/jowls) might take 30-45 minutes, while larger areas like the abdomen or thighs might take an hour to an hour and a half. The length of your procedure will be discussed with you during the consultation with your surgeon.
Which Parts of My Body Can I Treat With LipoAI?
LipoAI is a great solution for treating all areas that require skin tightening and/or fat removal. Potential treatment areas include:
- Love handles and waist
- Calves and ankles
- Neck and jowls
- Bra roll
- Male chest
Who is an Ideal Candidate for LipoAI?
LipoAI is not a weight loss solution. The best candidates are already in good overall health and close to their ideal body weight. LipoAI can be used to target areas that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise to help the patient contour and create their ideal shape as well as tighten skin.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment?
Immediately after your LipoAI treatment, you may experience minimal discomfort. Because the laser helps close damaged blood vessels, your bruising and bleeding will also be minimal. As your body recovers, there may be some swelling, which is natural. The downtime from a LipoAI procedure will be shorter than traditional liposuction. The length of recovery will vary depending on each patient and the area(s) treated. Your surgeon will discuss the recovery process & recommended recovery protocol with you based on your procedure.
