Laser Liposuction is designed to treat stubborn fat around the lower back, thighs, knees, arms, chin and jawline, hips and abdomen. Patients who have had traditional liposuction and other surgical procedures previously, such as tummy tucks, who want to achieve skin tightening can benefit from laser liposuction treatment.
This is done by using laser energy to break down the fat tissue followed by skin tightening. The surgeon is able to carefully sculpt the body by using the laser liposuction technology which have graded laser beams that are able to act on the cells that contain fat. The laser liposuction technology ruptures the fat cells.
Laser liposuction is a preferred way of removing fat for many people as it is non-surgical so it is less invasive than traditional surgical options. The recovery time is much faster so patients can start back at the gym within two weeks of the surgery. The body is left with minimal bruising and scars compared with the traditional liposuction.
Laser liposuction is performed under local anaesthetic so patients can go in into the clinic in the morning and be out by mid-day. Many parts of the body can be improved with the laser liposuction including love handles knees, cheeks, upper arms, thigh, chin, and bra strap.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: This procedure is suitable for both men and women of all ages but specifically person who has stubborn fat that is difficult to shift with both exercise and diet. A man or woman who exercises regularly and has a relatively good lifestyle would be ideal for this surgery as it would have a longer and greater effect. Some results are seen immediately because of the suction but however it may take 2-3 months to see final results.
