At The London Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, we are constantly looking at the latest innovations, safe and effective treatments for body contouring and we are happy to introduce Laser Lipo to our portfolio of treatments.
Based on the concept of traditional Liposuction, through Smartlipo to the revolutionary Laser Lipo, Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has pioneered the way forward in Laser body contouring surgery in the UK and Worldwide since 2006.
The demand for minimally invasive fat reduction procedures is continuously increasing and laser lipo is the ultimate answer, as it is designed to remove unwanted stubborn fat and tighten the skin through a minimally invasive laser procedure.
Laser Lipo – A revolution in body contouring
Laser Lipo is a major advancement in the body contouring field. Laser lipo involves liquefying of the fat, skin tightening and removing the liquefied fat by using a special micro-suction cannula and it is considered to be an advanced technique for removing excess fatty tissue from areas of the body that are resistant to dieting and exercise.
The surgeon artistically sculpts the body, using laser technology that delivers a specifically calibrated laser beam to act on the cells that contain fat. This technique produces less bruising and less blood loss, ensuring an easier, faster, and more comfortable recovery, apart from which it also offers better results than the more traditional liposuction.
This advanced technique allows for reducing the localised fat tissue due to the specific effect of the laser producing a thermal and mechanical effect that provokes the rupturing of the fat cells membrane, transforming them into an oily emulsion which is then scud out by a micro cannula.
The best candidates to Laser lipo are those individuals who are physically active, in good health, whose weight is normal, or almost normal, and have good skin tone and realistic expectations.
Age alone is not a significant influencing factor, as Laser lipo is a good choice for those who have taken all possible steps for losing accumulated fat without positive results and who wish to improve their silhouette.
Laser Lipo is considered to be the ultimate technique to reduce fat and tighten the skin in any part of the body, including the face, chin, and jawline with smooth and fast recovery. Laser lipo it is not a treatment for obesity.
The laser Lipo treatment can achieve in most cases:
• Body shaping
• Fat reduction
• Cellulite reduction
• Skin tightening
• Immediate results
• Suitable for all skin types
During the consultation, the surgeon will advise the patient about the best body contouring treatment to meet the specific needs and to ensure that patient get the best possible results
Patients who have large amounts of fat are not likely to see dramatic results from one session of laser lipo treatment, however in some cases, repeating the procedure will achieve significant fat reduction with skin tightening in large areas.
Mechanism of Laser Lipo
The pulsating laser beam has a photo-mechanical effect rupturing the fat cells’ membrane. Also it has thermal effect which melts the fractured fat cells and coagulates small blood vessels which reduce the bleeding to minimum. Both effects together (Photodynamic and Thermal) will give the skin tightening results.
The optical fibre of the laser is inserted into the same incision created for the infiltration of the anaesthetic solution. The actual treatment begins by slowly moving forwards lengthwise following the lines traced on the skin and trying to constantly maintain the same speed of movement.
Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has taken the Laser Lipo treatment further and developed his own technique for patients with much larger areas of fat. This combines Laser liposuction and gentle suction at the same time.
The skin tightening in some areas like hips is immediate and patients can see results straightaway. Laser Lipo surgery can be done under local or light general anaesthetic so there is no nee to stay overnight in the hospital. There are no stitches, just a very small incision that heals very well and quickly and by three or so months the patients can see the final results.
Advantages of Laser Lipo
There are many advantages of laser lipo when compared to traditional liposuction, as Laser lipo liquefies the fat which allows smaller sized cannulas to be used to suck out the liquefied fat and gives patients easier and smoother recovery with minimum downtime, as they can go back to work a day after the procedure and back to the gym in a week or two.
The lasers photo-thermal effect has also been shown to coagulate the blood vessels which reduce the risk of bleeding and patients have minimum bruising, swelling and discomfort after the procedure.
The laser energy also alters the natural qualities of collagen to create a gradual wound healing response that results in the production of new collagen with consequential skin tightening in treated areas.
The procedure usually takes one to two hours to perform, depending on which areas of the body are being treated, and how much fat is removed. A small incision will be made to introduce the laser cannula to liquefy the fat tissue and tighten the skin and to enable a small vacuum device to remove the liquefied fat swiftly and efficiently.
Small areas of stabbing fat response very well in very short period of time and patients can see about 40-50% of fat reduction immediately after treatment with some noticeable skin tightening effect and within 2-3 months they can see significant results with fat reduction and tightened skin.
Laser Lipo in different parts of the body
Nearly all the areas of the body can be improved aesthetically thanks to Laser lipo. During the first examination, the patient has the option of treating one or more areas at the same time. In order to reach optimal results, the doctor will indicate the areas, and in which order they must be treated for ensuring the best body shape.
The Laser lipo should be prefomed only in a proper surgical laser operating theatre and it is defined as a minimally invasive laser surgical procedure. It allows for a rapid recovery and return to a normal lifestyle after one day of the treatment.
The results are permanent and produce a harmonious body profile within a very short time without excessive traumas or aggressive treatment.
In women, the most frequently treated areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees and arms. In men, the “life-ring”, abdomen, and enlarged male breasts (gynecomasty) are the most frequently treated areas. An excess of transpiration in the armpits can also be attenuated with this technique. The sweat glands under the arms can be removed without any adverse effects.
Laser Lipo can be performed either under local anesthetic or under light general anesthetic and is treated as a day case, so there is no need to stay in the hospital overnight.
Mr Ayoubi uses the most advanced Laser Lipo technology, which equipped with themost sophisticated safety features, the Smartsense and the thermal guide.
The SmartSense delivery system contains an advanced microchip called the Accelerometer, which is inserted into the intelligent handpiece and gives equal amounts of laser energy all the way through the procedure which prevents the risk of indentations and irregularities of the skin and gives smooth and tighter skin.
ThermaGuide which 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 so hot as to cause the patient harm.
The Laser lipo should be performed only in a proper surgical laser operating theatre and it is defined as a minimally invasive laser surgical procedure. It allows for a rapid recovery and return to a normal lifestyle after one day of the treatment.
