What is laser tight?
Laser tight is a revolutionary technique for laser assisted liposuction which uses a special laser that melts the fat cells before suctioning them out and tightens the skin at the same time. By melting the fat before suctioning, the procedure results in minimal swelling, bruising and pain and can be done under local anesthesia in our office. Most Laser Tight patients have returned to work the next day!
How is Laser Tight different than Laser Lipo?
Laser Tight uses a revolutionary 980nano meter laser which is designed to tighten the skin as it suctions out the fat.
Laser Tight can also be used to suction fat from very small areas, such as the lower eyelid while performing an eyelid lift. Before and after pictures of a male patient who has undergone lower eyelid lifts with laser tight is shown to the right.
Is Laser Tight right for me?
Laser tight is perfect for patients who would like to have about 1-2 lbs of fat removed, have little loose skin and cannot afford much down time. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours to perform under local anesthesia in our office.
Is Laser Tight FDA Cleared?
LaserTight has several FDA clearances for uses in plastic surgery, dermatology, general surgery, and ophthalmology. It is currently the only laser cleared by the FDA for performing lower eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty)
