Laserlipolysis is the removal of fatty tissue from localized problem areas using a laser beam. It helps both men and women to improve the contours of their bodies, through a remarkable and yet relatively simple and safe surgical procedure. The process involves the insertion of a slender, hollow metal tube through a small incision, using laser in different layers of fat, then by repeated movements, fat globules are separated and removed by vacuum suction through other tube. Scars of the incisions are virtually undetectable. Usually only one small incision is needed for each specific area. The area treated is injected with various solutions prior to insertion of the cannula, in order to reduce bleeding and to assist breakdown and loosening of the fat globules.

Laserlipolysis while improving the silhouette does not necessarily eliminate the subtle puckering of the skin called cellulite. Cellulite results from the pull of fibrous tissue that connects skin to underlying muscle. What we do see is a reduction in the degree of cellulite because new techniques tend to sever the attached fibers allowing the skin to bounce up and return to a more smooth appearance. This is actually a “bonus” that one gets from the procedure but without any guarantee.

Laserlipolysis & Liposuction sculpts or recontours the body and it must be stressed that the aim is to alter the patient’s shape, rather than his or her overall weight. It is certainly effective in the removal of unwanted bulges and in improving the silhouette, but is not a method for the treatment of general obesity. Fat cells removed by laser are permanently removed. However, by eating to excess one may still gain excess weight and fatty bulges in other areas.
Particular areas of the body that can helped by laserlipolysis are the hips, inner thighs, outer thighs (‘saddle-bags’ ) the abdomen or stomach, the buttocks, the waist (‘love-handles’ problem in men) upper arms, knees, ankles, the over-developed male breast, the ‘dowagers hump’ problem, and the double chin. Laserlipolysis may be carried out in number of areas at the same time or be combined with another procedure. For example, it may be done with a facelift where excess fat is present under the chin.

The operation may be carried out under general, twilight or local anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the case. The length of stay in hospital will also vary for the same reasons, from a day case to one night. Pressure bandages or a corset will normally be applied immediately after surgery to control swelling and prevent any accumulation of blood or serum under the skin. Bruising, swelling and discomfort after the operation is a normal but temporary condition, the degree depending upon the extent and location of the area treated. Pest-operative care instructions given by the surgeon must be followed carefully and will include massage to the area and the wearing of pressure bandages or a corset. The pressure bandages/corset will be removed at approximately five to seven days post-operatively, at stitch removal. Patients usually return to work after some days, possibly before, although as mentioned, pressure bandages/corset will need to be worn under clothing for up to six weeks.

There is the risk of infection, that can be easily treated and for which we prepare for with antibiotics. There generally will be some numbness in the area treated, most or all of which should disappear in six to eight weeks. The incision sites may also heal unfavorably. All of these are possible complication, but in reality are unlikely to arise if there is good elasticity of the skin and the amount of fatty tissue removed remains within safe limits.
