Airsculpt Pros and Cons: Things to Know

Before you decide to do AirSculpt, you should know the pros and cons of it. Please read this article to learn more about AirSculpt.

Elite Body Sculpture uses the patented AirSculpt procedure to shape the body. This new generation of body sculpting is something that Elite is happy to offer to different cities in North America. All procedures, in our opinion, should be quick, risk-free, and as comfortable and minimally invasive as possible while still producing noticeable results.

What is AirSculpt?

Dr. developed a method of laser liposuction called AirSculpt. Aaron Rollins is a doctor in Beverly Hills, California. It was patented in 2012, and the Elite Body Sculpture chain of medical spas is the only place it is available.

Unlike traditional tumescent liposuction, which uses a cannula to break up the fat, AirSculpt lipo uses a proprietary cannula with a thin laser probe, which allows a plastic surgeon to melt excess fat before it’s removed through a “freckle-size hole.” There is no requirement for general anesthesia because this minimally invasive procedure is much gentler on the surrounding tissue.

An adult (over the age of 18) in good health who wants to get rid of stubborn fat deposits or contour their body in particular places, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, or under the chin, is a good candidate for AirSculptbody sculpting. It may also be used to enhance the outcomes of other body-contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck.

When compared to other laser liposuction methods, AirSculpt is unique because it can be used to harvest fat cells for fat transfer to other areas where you want more volume. The procedures it is most frequently used for are Brazilian butt lifts (which the Elite chain refers to as Power BBL Brazilian butt lifts or AirSculpt BBL), breast augmentations (referred to as Up A Cup), and hip augmentations (referred to as HipFlip for HipDips).

Pros of AirSculpt

  • It requires less recovery time than traditional liposuction: about three days as opposed to a week.
  • The hips, abdomen, love handles, arms, back, and under the chin can all be treated with this minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure.
  • Contrary to other laser lipo procedures, the removed extra fat can be either transferred to the butt, hips, or breasts or used to rejuvenate the hands.
  • Because the heat from the laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, AirSculpt liposuction also has the added benefit of slightly tightening the skin.
  • No general anesthesia is required.
  • The majority of Elite AirSculpt reviews on RealSelf are positive, giving the treatment a high Worth It Rating. The majority of people mentioned the relatively painless recovery from AirSculpt as well as the striking before-and-after results.

Cons of AirSculpt

  • There is a chance of infection as well as bruising and swelling as risks.
  • This type of lipo, like all others, is only used for body contouring and not for weight loss.
  • A tiny scar may form from the puncture incision used to insert the cannula.
  • Complications like swelling, bruising, and even burns were cited by some who thought the procedure was not worth it.

How Much Does AirSculpt Cost?

364 reviews from RealSelf members indicate that the average cost of AirSculpt liposuction is $11,625. That costs more than four times what CoolSculpting costs on average and more than twice what laser lipo generally costs.

But that cost can vary from $6,000 to $20,000, depending on how many areas you’ve treated, how big those areas are, and a few other important factors.

Why is AirSculpt So Expensive?

One of the main reasons you may pay more than twice the average cost of laser lipo or significantly more than the average cost of traditional liposuction is that AirSculpt is a patented laser liposuction technique that is only available at the Elite Body Sculpture chain of medical spas.

The Elite Body Sculpture medical spa line collaborates with several healthcare financing businesses, including Care Credit, Enhance Patient Financing, Alphaeon, Lending USA, and United Medical Credit, to help make it more affordable.

However, if cost is a significant factor, it might be worthwhile to consult with and obtain price quotes from Elite Body Sculpture medspa and at least one other board-certified plastic surgeon who performs laser liposuction or VASER lipo (which has many of the same advantages, including the viability of fat for transfer). After that, you can assess prices.

Is AirSculpt Lipo Worth the Money?

AirSculpt is Worth It, according to 92% of the 364 RealSelf users who have reviewed their experiences. When carried out by a qualified plastic surgeon, AirSculpt should produce excellent results with less recovery time than traditional liposuction: roughly three days as opposed to a week.

Due to the laser’s heat, which encourages collagen production, this laser lipo treatment also has the added benefit of mildly tightening the skin.

Results are permanent because the fat cells are removed, which appeals to many people looking to spend money on a body-sculpting procedure that doesn’t require numerous (expensive) follow-ups.

Just keep in mind that this isn’t a weight loss procedure, like all forms of lipo, and that in order to keep your results, you’ll need to maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise.
