Demand for liposuction over the years has increased dramatically largely due to the advances in technology and the amazing results that can be achieved.
Advanced laser lipolysis, widely known as laser lipo, uses sophisticated laser technology (diode laser) that selectively targets fat cells. These cells absorb the laser light causing them to emulsify allowing easy removal via suction through tiny discreet incisions in the area being treated.
The procedure is carried out in a local MYA clinic in specially equipped treatment rooms, under local anaesthetic and sedation with no overnight stay required. This ensures you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your entire experience. Laser lipolysis is specifically designed for reducing small unwanted fatty areas that have not responded to diet and exercise and not for treatment of weight loss; the procedure will however change your body shape.
Advanced laser lipo can be carried out in most areas of the body (maximum of 3 areas in one session) including those that are considered difficult to treat with surgical/traditional liposuction.
As with all other forms of liposuction, you will be required to wear a compression garment after a laser lipolysis. You may find your recovery to be faster with laser lipo as the procedure is less invasive which enables you to return to no-physical work within 2 – 3 days following your procedure. This is the ideal option for patients with a busy live style to reduce disruption to your everyday life.
