Laser Lipolysis

Laser Lipolysis is a minimally invasive form of aesthetic surgery designed to remove excess body fat. It involves the use of a laser to rapidly dissolve excess fat in target areas such as the thighs, abdomen, arms, neck and parts of the face, using a minor “keyhole” surgical procedure.

Laser Lipolysis is considered the gold standard in aesthetic surgery, and its application has been tested and proven to be safe and effective. Its specific advantages compared to other laser sources include:

  • Relatively low absorption in water
  • Largest directly hea­ted volume of subcutaneous tissue
  • Smallest undesirable thermal effect on neighboring dermal tissue
  • Significantly higher ability to coagulate blood vessels.
  • Safe, effective, and minimally invasive

Laser Lipolysis procedure does not require the use of a general anesthetic. A very fine laser fiber is inserted into the treatment area, where the laser light causes swelling and rupture of adipocytes. When the fat is melted, it can either be absorbed by the body or removed by the physician. Simultaneously, the laser also tightens the surrounding skin to prevent it from sagging after the removal of unwanted fat. In fact, the same laser can be used for skin tightening, tone and textural improvements elsewhere on the body.
