An innovative liposuction technique using a laser device is presented. It is a precise method, less traumatic than the conventional one. The interaction between the laser and the adipocyte causes lipolysis with reduced bleeding and its effect on collagen tone promotes collagen retraction and skin shrinkage. The results of the use of laser lipolysis on flaccid areas or in areas with the potencial for flaccidity are shown. The resulting skin retraction and the pathologic anatomy confirm these claims.
