From the concept of Smartlipo (laser lipolysis) to the revolutionary Laser Assisted Liposuction – Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has pioneered the way forward
The London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic is proud to be the leading clinic in Smartlipo. Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi introduced Smartlipo into the UK in June 2006. One year later, he pioneered the revolutionary Laser Assisted Liposuction technique.

Original Smartlipo – laser lipolysis
The original Smartlipo Laser Liposuction was an innovative and major advancement in the field of body contouring, body sculpting and liposuction.
This advanced revolutionary laser technology developed in Italy in 2000 (after extensive research and clinical studies) began to be used successfully in Italy, Japan and Brazil.
Smartlipo is a non-invasive laser surgical procedure using an advanced laser to reduce unwanted stubborn fat from most areas of the body. It is performed under local anaesthetic, light IV sedation or general anaesthetic, eliminating the need for aggressive surgery and without leaving any marks.
Smartlipo revolutionised liposuction and has become the gold standard of laser lipolysis. Using light energy, the tissue selective laser melts the fat before it is aspirated, allowing for easier patient recovery and greater sculpting control for the surgeon.
Smartlipo was approved by the Medicines and Health Care Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) – UK, June 2006, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – USA, December 2006.

Laser Assisted Liposuction
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi developed the revolutionary laser assisted liposuction technique in 2007. This technique facilitates liposuction, enhances skin tightening, reduces bleeding, bruising and patient downtime. It is based on lasering the fat tissue using Smartlipo laser energy, followed by skin tightening (taking advantage of the thermal effect of the laser energy). The suction machine or the bodyjet liposuction technique is then used to suck out the liquefied fat.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi revolutionized the Smartlipo treatment, being the first surgeon to combine gentle liposuction with Smartlipo for more rapid results without relying on traditional laser lipolysis alone.
The laser-assisted liposuction technique uses the Smartlipo’s pulsating laser beam which has a photo-mechanical effect rupturing the fat cells’ membrane. Combined with this it has a thermal effect which melts the fractured fat cells and coagulates small blood vessels which reduce the bleeding to a minimum.
Both effects together (photo-dynamic and thermal) will give skin tightening results. The deep fat is lasered first, followed by the superficial fat, and then, finally, the fat is suctioned out.
This technique has now been adopted by numerous plastic surgeons and cosmetic doctors worldwide.

Smartlipo MPX – The revolution of body contouring
In 2008, Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi introduced the revolutionary Smartlipo MPX from the USA into the UK and Europe. Smartlipo MPX is the first dual-wavelength laser system for body sculpting. This Smartlipo machine has two different lasers working simultaneously at the same time.
As with the original Smartlipo workstation, Smartlipo MPX is a non-invasive laser lipolysis system. The Smartlipo laser energy also coagulates the tissue, thereby sculpting body contours and tightening the skin. The Smartlipo laser liposuction procedure generally causes less bleeding, swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction, resulting in fewer complications and more rapid recovery time.

Smartlipo Triplex – laser liposuction of large areas
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi led the way again in 2010, by introducing from the USA into the UK and Europe, the third generation of Smartlipo lasers – the evolutionary Smartlipo Triplex.
The Smartlipo Triplex, offers greater fat reduction and skin tightening. It is the first laser lipolysis technology that uses three wavelengths which are well absorbed by fat. Smartlipo Triplex adds a new wavelength to the MPX generation of lasers. The three wavelengths are combined in one laser output. Three wavelengths fire sequentially, liquefying the fat and tightening the skin with collagen stimulation and blood vessel coagulation.
Both Smartlipo MPX and Smartlipo Triplex are equipped with two important unique features, the SmartSense and the ThermaGuide. These features are exclusive to the Smartlipo MPX, Smartlipo Triplex and Cellulaze Laser, offering the most advanced and sophisticated technology above any other laser system.
The SmartSense delivery system contains an advanced microchip called the Accelerometer, which is inserted into the intelligent hand piece and the motion of the intelligent hand piece gives precise laser power.
The ThermaGuide constantly measures the temperature under the skin and controls the output of energy, ensuring that the treatment area stays within a safe range so that it is hot enough to work efficiently, but not too hot as to cause harm to the patient.

Smartlipo at our clinic
At our clinic, Smartlipo laser assisted liposuction is performed by Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi, the UK’s leading Smartlipo surgeon. Respected both nationally and internationally as a leading surgeon, lecturer and tutor, he is a pioneer of new techniques and surgical innovations.
Mr Ayoubi fully developed the concept of Laser Assisted Liposuction and was the first Surgeon to introduce all generations of Smartlipo lasers into the UK.
By creating and applying his own advanced techniques in laser surgery, Mr Ayoubi has inspired plastic surgeons and cosmetic doctors to follow his lead. Consequently, Mr Ayoubi has earned his title and reputation as the ‘King of Smartlipo’ within the field of cosmetic laser surgery.
Through his commitment to innovation, medical excellence and the highest standards of patient care, Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has gained an unrivalled reputation with patients travelling from all over the world to have him perform Smartlipo laser body sculpting treatments.
