Fotona TightSculpting is a unique, dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser treatment for sculpting and tightening skin on all body areas. Providing exceptional results, TightSculpting’s exclusive delivery modes are used together for permanent fat melting and collagen remodeling with exceptional results. The procedure is a fast, safe and effective non-invasive alternative to laser lipolysis and liposuction, and requires no recovery time.

Over the course of treatment, effects build gradually to shape and contour your figure with results that are dramatic and long-lasting. Fotona TightSculpting is excellent for smoothing areas of the back, waist, hips, upper and lower abdomen, arms and legs. Even stubborn fat under the chin can be reduced non-surgically.

As fat is melted anywhere on the body, the skin of the area also becomes tighter and smoother, making Fotona TightSculpting an easy choice for mild-to-moderate body contouring with simultaneous skin tightening and no downtime.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is an effective surgical procedure to remove excess fatty tissue to slim, reshape, and contour your body. It’s one of the most common surgical procedures performed in America today.

Liposuction can be used to remove unwanted fat deposits from most areas of the body, including the:

  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Waist
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks

In many cases, liposuction can be combined with other cosmetic surgical procedures, such as facelifts and tummy tucks.

How is Liposuction Performed?
The liposuction procedure is performed with general anesthesia. Dr. Ghatan makes small and discreet incisions in the target area and uses narrow cannulas to insert the suction device into your body. This breaks up and removes your excess fatty tissue.

The liposuction process typically takes an hour or longer, depending on the size of the target area. Following your procedure, you might experience some minor swelling and discomfort. You should see immediately noticeable results and once the swelling goes down, you’re able to notice the full effects of liposuction with a smoother, slimmer, firmer, and more contoured body shape.

What results can I expect after liposuction?
After liposuction, you’re able to enjoy a more slender figure almost immediately. You should plan to take about a week off work to heal and recover. Dr. Ghatan usually suggests wearing compression garments to further support your healing process.

In the future, if you gain weight, the fat typically deposits on other parts of the body, since liposuction removes both fat cells and tissue from your body. Liposuction can remove stubborn fat pockets that have been present for many years.

Liposuction should be a complement to your healthy lifestyle, and you should be sure to take plenty of time to make sure it’s the right choice for you. If the issue is caused by other reasons, such as a hernia or muscle weakness, it’s important to remember that liposuction can’t recontour your body.
