About SmartLipoSmart Lipo is a remarkable new treatment using a Laser to melt away unwanted fat deposits. This is called Laser Lipolysis. The Smart Lipo technique has been used extensively in Europe and has recently been approved by the FDA in the USA. The uptake by European and North American patients has been tremendous. More and more men and women want to look and feel better about themselves. Despite the fact that people work out and lose weight, some pockets of fat are simply impossible to reduce or to shift. SmartLipo Laser Lipolysis now offers a proven safe and simple way to remove those stubborn fat deposits. Smart Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure using a specially designed powerful laser to sculpt the body contours and to permanently remove fat cells. Best of all the laser energy also interacts with the skin which results in proper skin shrinkage and tightening, thus significantly reducing cellulite and lose skin. The results of the treatment are simply astounding.

Is the treatment for me?The treatment is best for healthy people who are not excessively overweight or who are of reasonably average weight but who have specific localised areas of stubborn fat. (eg double chins, love handles, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, bottoms, upper arms, backs inner knees and of course the tummy/abdomen etc … virtually anywhere) and who want some lipo sculptue. Please note that people who do have health issues need not be excluded but special precautions may be required. All aspects of the procedure and your health will be discussed during your initial private consultation.
How does the Smart Lipo Laser Lipolysis work?The procedure is performed under sterile conditions in a specific theatre. The area of fat to be removed is infiltrated with a solution of local anaesthetic. A very fine (1mm diameter) cannula which contains the Smart Lipo laser probe is inserted under the skin through a tiny incision and directly into the fat. The laser beam is then slowly and methodically guided through the area and directed onto the fat cells which are immediately destroyed and liquefied. Your body will absorb this liquefied fat and eventually quite naturally excrete it through your liver and kidneys. The procedure generally takes about an hour. Usually there is very little bleeding bruising or swelling.
What happens post-procedure?After your SmartLipo treatment, you will be kept at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre in London for an hour before you are discharged home. You will be given verbal and written post procedure instructions. You will be provided with your medical requirements before leaving the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre. You are usually required to wear a compression garment for a day or two up to one week (occasionally more) depending up on the area treated. There is almost no bruising, swelling or pain and very few patients need more than an occasional mild painkiller. Most patients can return to work and most normal activities the next day. Recovery is usually remarkably quick.
How effective is the treatment?The treatment is very safe and effective. Patients start to see improvements within a few weeks; the full benefit of the procedure is usually achieved in up to 4 months, with some patients even reporting further improvements after that. This is because the liquified fat is drained away over time by the body. The results are permanent as the body does not create new fat cells. If you were to gain weight in future it would go to other areas. Most patients get the result that they seek with a single treatment but for some patients with larger areas it may be necessary to have more than one treatment session. This aspect of care will be discussed at the initial consultation.
