Possibly: All surgeries are patient and surgeon dependent. In my personal experience, i see less bleeding in my smartliposuction (laser) patients.

Somewhat: The cannula is a bit smaller but the fat which removed will still require a suction cannula that is the same as for any liposuction. Causes of bleeding are multiple and not just dependent on the type of liposuction.

Yes: The use of the laser and fine lipo instruments can minimize bleeding. With most of the modern techniques, bleeding should be minimal.

Possibly.: There are many factors involved when it comes to the degree of blood loss during any type of surgery. This holds true for liposuction surgery also. In my opinion, selection of your plastic surgeon will be more important that selection of a specific "technology”. Best wishes.

Could you explain what is laser liposuction surgery?

Just one of many...: Means used to "break up" fat before suctioning it out. Another method that has the same function is ultrasonic energy. All of these use some form of energy to break up the fat to be removed before the actual suctioning is done. I am not aware that any specific method is superior to any other.
