Someone with body fat that they want to get rid of.
How is laser liposuction better than traditional liposuction?
The most significant difference is how much the skin tightens after the procedure. Heat produced by the laser tightens skin and rebuilds collagen. Traditional liposuction does not have this feature.
Does Laser Liposuction require general anesthesia?
No. One of the best things about laser-assisted liposuction is that it does not require general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Mallalieu offers this for longer cases, or if the client prefers anesthesia.
Is Laser Liposuction safe?
Yes! Laser Center of Maryland uses the Prolipo Plus system from Sciton, which has full FDA approval. Our surgical team follows every precaution to give you an excellent result.
Are there any complications or risks associated with the procedure?
Of course, it’s a surgical procedure so all the standard risks apply but that is why you are entrusting your care to Dr. Mallalieu.

When can I expect to see results?
After swelling subsides, roughly 3 weeks.
What can I expect during recovery?
Some bruising and swelling and a recovery time of days to 3 weeks. Generally people can return to work the next day. This recovery time is very case dependent and varies widely between patients.
Does the procedure produce visible scars?
We treat our incision sites with the same lasers we use for scar removal for several months after surgery. Incisions are 1/2 cm wide and closed with glue; typically they resolve without a visible mark within 6 months.
