Laser-assisted lipolysis with a medium-pulsed 1064-nanometer neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) system is a new FDA-approved method of removing localized areas of fat with the added benefit of skin tightening. This new method is particularly useful in treating the lower abdomen and submental areas where skin laxity may occur after the removal of adipose tissue. In addition, decreased bruising and scrotal edema after treating men is possible with use of the tumescent technique and the added benefit of coagulation produced by the laser. Experience in treating men with this modality is reviewed.
