About Lipotherme Laser Liposuction
Throughout history, heat has been used to promote health and well-being. Lipotherme is a revolutionary technique that harnesses the power of heat-generating lasers to selectively break up unwanted body fat and reshape your body.
Lipo means fat, and therme means heat; so Lipotherme is literally the controlled application of heat to liquefy fat.
The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short) which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure.
By contrast, Lipotherme laser lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising.
Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipotherme can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or your doctor may recommend a combination therapy of Lipotherme with traditional liposuction.
Lipotherme is the result of years of research into the ideal method for targeting unwanted fat “zones” and eliminating them from the human body. Lipotherme was developed by a team of European researchers and thousands of satisfied patients have benefited from it.
The Lipotherme Procedure
Your doctor will first administer a mild numbing agent to the targeted zone. Then a small metal tube called a cannula is inserted under the skin and a tiny laser beam is fired as the doctor moves the cannula back and forth. As the laser warms the fat cells, it creates a thermal effect.
Fat cells, which are highly receptive to thermal energy, are liquefied. Next your doctor will aspirate (suction) the liquefied fat cells away.
During a pre-procedure consultation, the doctor will work with you to discuss your goals, explain the procedure and set realistic expectations. At your consultation, we will perform a Body Mass Index (BMI) test.
This information, in combination with other health information, will be used to determine the potential outcomes you should expect. Lipotherme is ideal for removing unwanted fat in selected body zones with all patients reporting results post-procedure due to the reduction in fat and the instantaneous skin tightening, but results will vary depending on a host of factors such as age, hormones, BMI and other health indicators.
The doctor or a staff member will thoroughly brief you on all pre-procedure and post-procedure precautions.
