You can Achieve the body shape you want

Assisted Lipolysis (laser and/or Ultrasonic assisted liposuction) is a revolutionary fat removal technique which allows for faster recovery, less tissue trauma and much finer Body Contouring results.
It can be successfully to treat most areas where the body stores fat, which typically involves:

  • Double Chin
  • Underarms (“Bat Wings”)
  • Back and Bra area
  • Flanks (“Love Handles”)
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Knees
  • Calves
  • Abdomen - including pre or post pregnancy
  • Ankles

The advantages of Laser and/or Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction includes:

  • Safety – strict protocols must always be adhered to, which ensures optimal safety
  • The question of “loose” skin – some liposuction techniques can leave loose skin where fat has been removed. With Assisted lipolysis, the process stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen, causing the skin to tighten and firm to reduce the possibility of excess skin.
  • Less downtime – As this procedure is more minimally invasive, and does not require a general anaesthetic, it does mean that you can drive to and from the procedure if you wish - it is though preferable to be driven as it is still a procedure. Most patients are able to be back at work within a couple of days depending on the patient, with some discomfort which is treatable..
  • Minimal to No bruising - as this system uses a Laser and/or Ultrasound device to melt or liquefy the fat calls, the small blood
    vessels which when damaged lead to bruising, are not affected as much. If you do tend to bruise very easily, there may be some bruising, but it usually resolves within 7-14 days.
  • Lower costs - Assisted liposuction is typically less expensive as it does not require general Anaesthesia and hence no hospital stay is required.

The type of procedure is ideal for people who have a normal BMI and are not significantly overweight. You should already be maintaining a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet, as this will assist in quicker recovery.
You can feel a difference in the fat volume at the time of the procedure. As the area heals and remodels, changes will become more and more visible. The overall result depends on the severity of the area to be treated, but dramatic long term improvements are usually seen from approximately eight weeks post procedure. Results will continue to improve over the next few months as the fat volume continues to decrease and the skin starts to tighten – with final results after four to six months, and some research shows up to a year post treatment.
