What Is Laser Liposuction at the Dr Lanzer Malvern Clinic?

Laser liposuction at the Malvern Clinic is a relatively new procedure in the world of cosmetic surgery. The procedure is focussed on the removal of body fat, mainly in patients who are already around their target weight, but still struggle with persistent fat deposits despite healthy eating habits and regular exercise.

The procedure can be executed internally or externally, depending on the preferred technique. External liposuction is a procedure where the surgeon uses a laser on the outside of the treatment area, before the actual procedure takes place. Using the laser externally liquefies the fat before the removal via suction. Internal liposuction works differently. For internal liposuction, the cosmetic surgeon will use the laser during the actual surgery, more specifically by attaching the laser to the suction device or on the end of a fibre-optic probe.

The cost of laser lipo depends on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the size of the treatment area. Costs may also vary on the experience of the surgeon and the facility you have chosen for your procedure.

Does Laser Liposuction in Malvern Provide Long Term Results?

Results obtained from a laser lipo procedure can be more long term, providing the patient is willing to maintain healthy eating habits and exercise regularly after the procedure. Laser lipo can change the shape of your body, but those changes will not last if the patient cannot maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Please note that laser lipo is not a treatment for overweight related problems; this includes cellulite and stretch marks. To tackle these problems, patients often need an additional non-surgical procedure after or during their laser lipo treatment.

What Are the Risks of Laser Lipo?

Every surgical procedure has its risks and patients should be aware of these risks before they undergo laser lipo. The risks of laser lipo are closely connected to the skill level of the cosmetic surgeon, since the risk for the patient is higher with an inexperienced surgeon than an experienced surgeon. Therefore, always make sure you choose a surgeon that has experience with laser liposuction and preferably executed the procedure numerous times in the past.

The risks of liposuction include, but are not limited to, burns, infection, damage to tissues surrounding fat cells, dead skin and fluid imbalance. An experienced surgeon will keep these risks to an absolute minimum, but there is always a risk of these complications, so patients must be made aware of them before getting the procedure done.

What Should I Consider Before Having Laser Lipo?

Patients must meet certain criteria to benefit from laser liposuction in Malvern. Firstly, patients who want to obtain laser lipo must be at least 18 years of age and be in general good health. The patient must also live a healthy lifestyle and show an ability to maintain a stable body weight. The patient must also be able to maintain healthy eating habits and exercise on a regular basis after the procedure.

The health of the skin can also play a role in how the treatment area looks after the procedure. People with a firmer and more elastic skin usually get more natural results post-liposuction, while older people may find that their skin slightly sags. Because of this, cosmetic surgeons often combine liposuction with a skin-tightening procedure for patients with less elastic and older skin.

Finally, patients must also have fat that is localised in specific areas of the body to be eligible for the procedure. Since liposuction is directed on the removal of persistent fat deposits that do not go away with diet and exercise, the patient in question is unlikely to have excess fat deposits in their entire body if they have been maintaining a healthy diet and been exercising on a regular basis.

What Happens After Laser Lipo?

When you leave the Dr Lanzer Clinic after your surgery, it is important to follow the recommendations provided by Dr Lanzer closely. Post-operative care is just as important as the procedure itself, since aftercare[2] can influence the retraction of the skin, recovery speed, fluid removal and chances of infection.

Once excess, subcutaneous fat has been removed, the skin needs to retract. To ensure that the results are obtained after the procedure, the patient and clinic must monitor and control the retraction of the skin. If the recommendations of the clinic are not followed, it could lead to problems such as uneven retraction, wrinkles, dimples and folds.

Swelling and Bruising

Shortly after the procedure, patients will experience swelling and bruising due to the surgery. Even though it is part of the natural healing process, the swelling and bruising can cause patients discomfort. The Dr Lanzer Clinic provides patients with medication to reduce this discomfort, but also offers additional treatments to accelerate swelling and bruising reduction.

Infection Monitoring

One of the most important things patients must be aware of is infection. Even though the medications provided to you will reduce the chance of infection, it is still necessary to look out for the early warning signs. If you experience fever or if any of the post-surgery symptoms seems to worsen, please make an appointment with the Dr Lanzer Clinic as soon as possible. Even if there is no infection present, it is best to be safe than sorry when it comes down to your health post-liposuction.
