Dr. Barnes says that different physicians use different techniques in laser assisted liposuction, which is often dependent on the laser used. "You can take 10 doctors and there might be 10 different ways they use the laser. Some of the higher powered lasers for laser lipolysis, you can actually melt all of the fat - deep, superficial. I have gone back to extracting fat deeper because it's faster and I don't have to worry about the thermal implications of delivering a whole lot of heat." Dr. Barnes goes on to say, "The thermal implications should not be overlooked. That heat continues to heat and well up to the subdermal plexus for probably half an hour after you're done. You can easily exceed the tolerances of the dermis and create burns, full thickness. So I've gone back to not heating the deep fat which I certainly can do with my SmartLipo MPX, I've gone back to extracting as I have for 14 years prior to doing this, and then I bring the laser in at the end of case at lower amounts for longer to get my thermal wound conversion and my skin tightening. That's the way I do it."
