Laser lipolysis is a specialised liposuction procedure that can be executed at Dr Lanzer’s Melbourne Clinic. The procedure focusses on the removal of fat cells, but also on the treatment of cellulite and stretch marks. To find out more about this liposuction procedure at our Melbourne Clinic, please read our detailed information on the subject below.
How Does Laser Lipolysis at the Melbourne Clinic Work?
Lipolysis is a liposuction treatment that is based on the principles of the vacuum and laser treatment. The combination of these two principles enables Dr Lanzer to stimulate fat cells inside a treatment area and forcing it to turn into liquefied fat. Once liquefied, the fat moves from the inside of the cell to the outside of the cell through a temporary pore. When the fat is outside a cell, it can be absorbed by the lymphatic system of the body.
A liposuction treatment such as lipolysis makes millions of fat cells shrink to a smaller size. As a result, patients may experience a reduction of several inches around the waist, thighs, arms and the back. The liposuction procedure also can tighten the skin, subsequently reducing the appearance of problems such as cellulite and stretch marks.
Please note that the actual fat cells are not removed during this liposuction procedure, but they are shrunk. Therefore, patients must maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to keep benefiting from the results obtained at Dr Lanzer’s Melbourne Clinic.
Which Patients Are Good Candidates for Lipolysis at the Dr Lanzer Clinic?
Lipolysis is a suitable treatment for any patient who has persistent fat deposits on the arms, thighs and abdomen, or patients who want to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite on the body. However, to determine your eligibility for the procedure, patients must make an appointment with the Dr Lanzer Clinic for a thorough evaluation.
There are certain restrictions to who can have the treatment. Pregnant women are not eligible for lipolysis and neither are patients who are taking blood thinning medication. The treatment is also not recommended for people suffering from vascular disease, cancer, infectious progressive diseases and aids.

What Are the Benefits of Lipolysis?
Some of the benefits of the lipolysis treatment relate to the procedure itself. Firstly, the procedure does not require the use of injections, anaesthesia or incisions. Considering the nature of the treatment, lipolysis can also be executed on an outpatient basis.
In addition to the removal of persistent fat deposits and improving the quality of the skin, lipolysis may have a relaxing effect. The movement of the machine may relieve stress, tension and improve the blood circulation of the patient.
Can Patients Experience Any Side-Effects After Lipolysis?
As is the case with every cosmetic procedure, whether this procedure is of a surgical or non-surgical nature, there are always side-effects that patients should be made aware of. With lipolysis, patients with a sensitive skin may experience bruising after the procedure. If you should experience severe bruising after this procedure, always contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for advice or a follow-up appointment.
In addition to bruising, some patients will experience tenderness and swelling around the treatment area. These side-effects should gradually reduce over the course of the recovery period. However, if you believe that swelling is increasing, or if you experience severe pain after the procedure, always contact our clinic.
How Long Does It Take and How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The average lipolysis session takes approximately thirty minutes. Most patients will need fifteen lipolysis sessions to obtain their desired result, although this may vary from patient to patient. When the patient has acquired the result they wanted to obtain, they will need to come back to the Dr Lanzer Clinic once a month for a maintenance session.
Naturally, the maintenance phase after lipolysis treatment is only necessary when old problems start to return, for example excess fat or cellulite. To avoid needing several maintenance sessions after your procedure, it may be a good idea to look at your lifestyle. If you are eating unhealthily, or are not getting sufficient exercise, small changes in your daily routine could ensure certain problem areas do not return.
What Should I Do After Lipolysis?
When you had a lipolysis treatment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities until the treatment area has healed sufficiently. Patients should keep the compression garment on for the time recommended by the clinic’s medical staff.
During your recovery process, it is also important to keep the treatment area clean. Ideally, patients want to clean the treated area at least two times a day. Patients should also avoid drinking alcohol during the healing process.
Finally, getting a gentle massage may promote the recovery process after your procedure. However, avoid any form of heavy massage for at least a couple of months after your procedure.
