Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction

 

Laser Liposuction is a procedure targeted at lower eyelid bags, chins and jowls. It works by denaturing fat, which the body then absorbs through natural means. It is less invasive than traditional liposuction. One of the most common areas addressed with Laser Liposuction is removing the appearance of double chins.

 

Smartlipo™ at Prefacè Cosmetic is used to enable the removal of excess fat in lower eyelid bags, underneath the jowls and chin area. The fat is left to absorb naturally over a period of time or can be removed immediately (liposuction). Laser liposuction can be combined with the iNeedle thread technique to tighten the chin area and provide chin reduction. Smartlipo™ can also be combined with collagen stimulating techniques such as Thermage, eTwo Sublime and Pellevé.

 

Laser Liposuction is a procedure performed in Dr Hollenbach’s rooms usually done with local anaesthesia and sedation.

 

What are the risks involved with Laser Liposuction?

Laser Liposuction procedures carry risks. It’s important to be aware of common risks so you are able to weigh up the benefits, risks and limitations of the surgery. Below is a list of possible complications and specific risks for Laser Liposuction. General risks and complications of surgery can be found here. There may be complications that are not listed here and some lifestyle factors and medical conditions can cause greater risks.

 

Risks of Laser Liposuction:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Asymmetry

 

Recovery from Laser Liposuction:

Please note that results and treatment vary patient to patient according to factors including genetics, age, diet and exercise. Usually patients return to normal daily activities within 1-2 days of Laser Liposuction. At Prèface Cosmetic we provide patients with tailored recovery programs to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling.

Laser Liposuction is designed to address the following:

Lower Eyelid Bags

Jowl Reduction

Chin Fat Reduction

Double Chin Removal & Reduction

Laserlipolysis: An Innovation That Has Revolutionised Liposculpture

 

Laserlipolysis is indicated for treating localised fat deposits in specific body zones and is extremely effective in areas where diet and physical exercise fail to produce positive results. It is even possible to treat the more delicate areas for which traditional liposuction is not normally recommended, such as lower eyelids, cheeks & double-chins.

 

Since it has a shrinking effect, while also stimulating the dermal collagen, Smartlipo™ greatly reduces flabby skin. This particularly works well as a traditional liposuction technique in the chin area because there is natural tightening of the skin induced by the laser after removing the fat. Techniques such as Thermage and other collagen stimulating treatments will further enhance skin tightening.

 

Laser-Assisted Liposuction

 

The photomechanical action of the laser can be assisted by low-pressure aspiration through a special microcannula with a diameter of only 3 mm. The fat is removed immediately without any trauma or lesions. This procedure is particularly suitable when removing larger volumes in patients who want immediate results.
