Patients who are of average weight and have problem areas are best treated with laser-assisted Lipolysis. This may be genetically prone areas where the excess fat won’t budge even with weight loss, dieting or extreme exercise. Laser Lipo is ideal for body sculpting in both men and women.
Laser Lipolysis can be used for most parts of the body to remove stubborn pockets of body fat and fatty tissue. This can include, arms, hips, back, neck, jowls, stomach, knees, man boobs or as part of a mummy makeover.
Laser Lipolysis is a laser that assists liposculpture by treating the fat before it is suctioned out of the body. The fat both melts but forms bubbles that break down the fat. A tiny thin fibre that conducts the laser energy is inserted via a cannula through very small incisions. The laser then:
1) targets the fat cells with heat which causes them to melt and then be gently suctioned out.
2) heats the undersurface of the skin which enhances skin contraction and collagen production
The laser also may enhance the goal of a general smooth result.
The recovery time depends on the individual, usually, the area may be sore for up to a week following your procedure.
Timing depends on how many areas are being treated and how large each treatment area is. The usual time frame is approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.
Our surgeons performs Laser Lipolysis at his state of the art day surgery centre in Malvern. This is performed under local anaesthetic and does not require any hospital stay.

The laser comes with a special deep thermoregation that automatically constantly measures the heat in the skin. The machine cuts out if it gets too hot. Also, there is a special device that monitors movement. If the hand stops moving the laser stops.
Laser Lipolysis melts the fat cells in the targeted areas. As with Liposculpture, it is beneficial to maintain a healthy diet and exercise following surgery to avoid the weight returning either to the same area or to other areas of your body.

Every surgical procedure is accompanied by risks, so these should be considered before having a cosmetic procedure done. It is important for a patient to understand the risk and potential side effects of their procedure fully before they go in for surgery. To make sure the patient understands and accepts the risks accompanying invasive procedures, laser lipolysis and laser treatments, the patient will be required to sign a consent form before having the procedure. If you still have questions when you are about to sign the consent form, be sure to ask any questions you have about laser lipolysis before signing because it is extremely important to understand every aspect of your procedure.
