You’ve worked hard to lose weight and get within striking distance of your ideal body. All too often, however, stubborn pockets of fat stand between you and your goals. At Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Gene Meisenberg offers minimally invasive laser liposuction to his patients in Brooklyn, New York, to help them get across the finish line.

Laser liposuction, or lipo, is a technique that eliminates your fat cells in order to contour your shape.
Your body has the same number of fats cells throughout your life, which increase or decrease in size as you gain or lose weight. That's an important distinction to make because most people erroneously believe that when you add or lose pounds, you’re adding or subtracting fat cells, which is not the case.
This fact works in your favor when you want to reshape your body because you can turn to techniques that permanently get rid of your existing fat cells, which don’t regenerate.
What doesn’t work in your favor is your body’s resistance to weight loss efforts. That's because your fat is programmed to protect specific areas of your body and migrates to those areas naturally. For women, these areas include your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back.
For men, the love handles and abdomen are typically the toughest to target. Not coincidentally, these areas are the ones Dr. Meisenberg most frequently targets with minimally invasive laser body sculpting.
Laser lipo is the perfect marriage of technology and liposuction. Armed with the ProLipo Plus™, Dr. Meisenberg can destroy your fat cells and suck them out, without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.
The ProLipo is an in-office treatment that features two laser wavelengths that sculpt your body and firm your skin at the same time. Using a small tube inserted into the treatment area, Dr. Meisenberg uses the laser energy to heat up and destroy your fat cells, which he then suctions out through the same tube.
Because of the fast action of the laser, this process takes far less time than traditional liposuction, where the doctor had to loosen your fat physically. As a result, you’ll experience less bruising and swelling.
Your results are both immediate and gradual. Right after your procedure, you may experience some minor bruising and swelling, which Dr. Meisenberg addresses with compression garments. As these subside, your new body begins taking shape. Over the course of three months, your body will adjust to the fat reduction and your skin will reform and tighten over the area.
