Laser Lipolysis – Smartlipo – Triplex
Dr Lanzer has had a long standing interest in liposculpture and devices that can
enhance results. He was one of the first to try the Laser Lipolysis during its inception.
Currently Dr Lanzer is one of the first to offer the new three wavelength Laser Lipolysis device. It is used to help melt fat before liposculpture and also is used to treat Cellulite – CELLULAZE.
What is Laser Lipolysis?
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 breakdown the fat. A tiny thin fibre that conducts the laser been is inserted 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
The laser also may enhance the goal of a general smooth result.
Do I need to be Asleep?
The procedure is similar to the Tumescent Liposuction. The anesthetic fluid is placed into the fat. The patient can choose if they are awake or asleep. The laser is activated.
Who is the ideal candidate for Laser Lipolysis?
Patients who are of average weight and have problem areas are best treated with Laser Lipolysis. This may be genetically prone areas where the fat won’t budge even with dieting or extreme exercise. Laser Lipolysis is ideal for both men and women.
Which parts of the body Laser Lipolysis is used for?
Laser Lipolysis can be used for most parts of the body to remove stubborn pockets of fat. This can include, arms, hips, back, neck, jowls, stomach, knees, man boobs or as part of a mummy makeover.
Why does the skin not burn?
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.
How painful is the procedure?
The area is numb as it is performed under local anaesthetic. There might be a sensation of pressure or some mild discomfort however there should be no pain. The area may be sore for up to a week following your procedure.
Does the procedure take a long time to perform?
Timing depends on how many areas are being treated and how large each are is. The usual time frame is approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.
Is Laser Lipolysis performed in a hospital?
Dr Lanzer 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.

Is Laser Lipolysis more long term?

Do the Incisions scar?
Tiny incisions are made with Laser Lipolysis. They most often can not be seen after the procedure and fade until they are barely visible.
Can Laser be used on the face?

Any special aftercare?

Laser lipolysis has many applications, so most patients are not sure if the treatment could provide a solution to their cosmetic problem. Therefore, it is so important to make a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgery or speak with your local doctor about possible treatment options. If you believe laser lipolysis might be a suitable treatment option for you, then it is recommended to make an appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. When you speak to Dr Lanzer, he can lay out all available treatment options for you, so you can make an informed decision before you decide to go ahead with surgery.
Every surgical procedure is accompanied by risks, so these should be expected when you consider having a cosmetic procedure done. With this it is important for a patient to understand the risks of their procedure fully before they go in for surgery. To make sure the patient understands and accepts the risks accompanying laser lipolysis, 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.
