How Does It Work?
SmartLipo/Laser lipolysis is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat from fibre-optic lasers at various wavelengths to melt body fat. The added benefit of laser lipolysis is that it spurs the production of the protein collagen, making skin more taut.
There have been several medical studies in relation to Laser Lipolysis and the success rate of the procedure, clinical results were drawn from the laser lipolysis and liposuction procedures of more than 2,000 patients over a three-year span and researchers found that patients overall lost significant fat bulk in different parts of the body and saw an increase in skin tightness. Patients didn’t suffer from any major complications, though some complained of minor pain and bruising.
At Signature Clinic we incorporate this effective surgical procedure as a three stage treatment when it comes to Laser Lipolysis, to ensure patients receive maximum results with minimum intervention.
Stage 1 – Laser Lipolysis – Our highly experienced Cosmetic Surgeon will target the areas of concern with the fibre-optic laser, melting the fat and destroying any sort of blood supply the fat has. The laser wavelength used in stage 1 liquefies the stubborn fatty areas.
Stage 2 – Liposuction – We will then use a small cannula to infiltrate the area of concern, vacuuming the melted fat away from the body.
Stage 3 – Collagen production and skin tightening – The surgeon will then revisit the areas of concern with the fibre optic laser to tighten the skin, whilst simultaneously promoting collagen production.
Although versatile on all body areas, at Signature Clinic this treatment is commonly performed on the
- Male Chest – Gynecomastia
- Neck/Chin region
-Unlike other forms of Liposuction/Fat removal treatments, this remarkable procedure consists of three stages, the third stage is laser skin tightening/collagen production, minimising potential risks of loose/excess skin.
There is no scarring with SmartLipo Laser Lipolysis, it’s minimally invasive.
At your surgical assessment the surgeon will carefully examine the treatment areas, and advise your if SmartLipo would be a beneficial treatment to proceed with. At Signature Clinic we have a wide range of treatments for fat reduction, if SmartLipo isn’t suitable, we can offer alternative treatments.
SmartLipo is a fantastic treatment for Male Gynecomastia. The results are dependent on the grading, severity and the characteristics of the Gynecomastia.
