How much fat can be removed during a ProLipo laser lipolysis treatment session?
Depending on the amount of targeted fatty tissue, several liters of fat can potentially be removed during a treatment session, especially if suction is utilized during the procedure.

The best way to maintain results following a Pro Lipo treatment session is to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. How is Pro Lipo performed? It is most safely performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon using the tumescent anesthesiologic technique. This technique involves injecting dilute local anesthetic solution containing epinephrine into the targeted fat space. Once the fat space is completely numb, a cannula containing a laser fiber is passed through small openings in the skin. When
