San Francisco Allura Laser Liposuction

Lasers have been around since the 80’s but recently have become a more important component of surgical and minimally invasive procedures. Many non-surgical devices such as CoolSculpting, Kybella, and TruSculpt are used to remove unwanted fat in smaller areas such as the chin/neck, bra fat, thighs, and abdomen. Although these procedures do succeed at reducing unwanted fat, they often require multiple treatments and none of them work to help tighten skin. Allura Laser Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure which not only destroys and removes unwanted fat, but also tightens loose skin in a single procedure. Allura excels in areas such as jawline contouring and reduction of neck fat.

Allura Laser Liposuction Improvements

Allura works best in contouring, small areas of the body. This procedure will result in:

  • Fat reduction and skin tightening of the neck, jawline, bra roll, abdomen, inner thighs

Allura Laser Liposuction Quick Facts

  • Length: 1-2 hours
  • Anesthesia: Local or General
  • Inpt/Outpt: Outpatient
  • Side effects: Bruising, swelling, pain
  • Recovery: 5-7 days off of work

Allura Laser Liposuction Technique

Allura can be performed either under local or general anesthesia depending on the size of the treatment areas and patient desires.

The procedure begins by making multiple small (2-3mm) incisions in concealed areas of the body. A saline solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is then infiltrated into the areas to be treated. This is to help facilitate fat removal, prevent bleeding, and helps with post-operative pain control. Allura is then used to heat up and destroy unwanted fat. Destroyed fat is then removed through the same incisions. Next, Allura is used to tighten any loose skin using a laser to heat and contract the underside of the skin. After surgery, light compression is applied to the treatment areas to help reduce post-procedural swelling.

During your pre-operative visits, Dr. Sieber will work with you to determine exactly which body areas you want to be treated and whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Preparing for Allura Laser Liposuction

As with any major surgery, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Recovery from Allura

Recovery from Allura can vary depending on the size and number of areas treated. For small areas such as the neck/jawline, the recovery should be relatively quick. There will be some minor bruising and swelling immediately after the procedure which should resolve over the next 3-5 days after the procedure. You will be wearing compression immediately after the procedure which will be worn all the time for the first 3 days, then only at night for a total of 2 weeks. The compression helps to reduce swelling and bruising.

After the surgery you will need to refrain from any rigorous activity for the first 2 weeks. Starting activities too soon after surgery may put you at risk for bleeding. You may begin to perform light exercise 2 weeks after your surgery and may gradually increase your activity as you tolerate. Continuing with a healthy diet and active lifestyle after your procedure will help to further enhance your surgical results.

Allura Laser Liposuction FAQs

Q: How many Allura treatments before I see results?

A: Most body areas only require a single treatment. Allura differs compared to other non-surgical procedures in that nearly all unwanted fat can be removed in a single procedure.

Q: How long will it take before I see results?

A: You will notice a reduction in fat immediately after the procedure. It may take 3-4 weeks for swelling to completely resolve and may take 8-12 weeks before skin tightening is more evident. Healing takes time, so be patient during this period.

Q: Why is Allura better than other treatments for the neck/jawline?

A: Allura excels in that it is able to remove unwanted fat as well as tighten the skin in a single procedure. Because Allura only requires a single treatment, you will only need to plan for a single period of downtime.

Q: Is it more cost-effective to have Allura or other treatments?

A: Even though Allura is a more expensive upfront cost because it is only a single treatment, the overall cost will be less compared to other non-surgical treatments that require multiple sessions.

Testimonials

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
