Details

Laser liposuction or laser lipolysis is a technique commonly used for destroying accumulated fat in the body. The laser radiation by its thermal effect allows the destruction of fat cells and the obtaining of a skin retraction. Comparing with the traditional liposuction procedure, laser liposuction is a less invasive and less bloody procedure in which a small tube is inserted through a tiny incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the excessive fat that is under the skin. The increase in temperature in the dermis induces excitation of the fibroblast which will produce collagen. This skin stretching effect constitutes a definite advantage of laser liposuction, in particular in certain delicate areas where liposuction gives often disappointing results: the inner face of the thighs, arms, neck, stomach area or back. When the quantity of fat to be treated is large, it may be more effective to combine laser liposuction and conventional liposuction to improve the results. The choice between these different techniques will be the result of clinical examination and discussion between the plastic surgeon and the patient.


Who Is This For?

How Does it Work?

The principle of laser liposuction is based on the bursting of fat cells by a controlled thermal effect. The laser radiation comes directly into contact with the adipocyte, heats it to burst it, the triglycerides released by the burst must then be metabolized by the body or more surely sucked up to accelerate their elimination. This technique should be preferred for localized excess fat. In the case of a larger excess, it is better to use liposuction or to combine the two techniques. It is the ideal treatment for superficial fatty deposits and in particular for cellulite. Indeed, the homogeneity of the results obtained by this technique allows working much more on the surface without creating irregularities, unlike superficial liposuction.

 

What Does Laser Liposuction Treatment Involve?

1.    Consultation for Laser Liposuction

The first step to start your laser liposuction process will be the online consultation. At this stage, our specialist will ask you some questions to define your problems and try to learn your complaints. The main target of this stage is to make sure whether you are a suitable candidate for Laser liposuction or you need to have another treatment. Your health history, allergies, medications you use, previous surgeries and your expectations about the process are the most important data to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you at this online consultation step.

2.    Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

At this stage, we will learn your criteria to make the best treatment planning for you. We will share the list of the clinic and surgeon; which we filter according to the criteria we receive from you. After you select one of them, we proceed to the stage of date determination and detailed adjustments.

3.    Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your laser liposuction surgeon. He or she will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations better and also make you understand what you should expect from your treatment. Your clinic will explain everything you need to know about your treatment process and try to simulate the results as much as possible, in order you to feel well-prepared.

4.    Medical Examinations

Before the laser liposuction process begins, you will be conducted some necessary medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status and to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the procedure. If any risk obtained at this stage, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.    Surgery

  • It is a surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia in a single session, consisting of introducing under the skin a microcannula of 1 mm in diameter connected to a laser source.
  • The duration of treatment depends on the amount of fat and the number of localizations to be treated (30 minutes to 2 hours). The melted fat is then aspirated to accelerate its elimination.
  • It is an outpatient treatment that must be performed in the clinic and you may return home as soon as the procedure is completed.
  • Laser liposuction is a painless procedure; a tingling or tenderness sensation is possible for the next 2 days. There may also be slight swelling (edema) during the following week. 


Things You Should Consider After Laser Liposuction Treatment

  • There will be no noticeable change in the first few weeks; the result will start to appear after 1 month. The skin will take approximately 3 to 6 months to fully gain the new curves and readjust to the new silhouette.
  • The results will, therefore, be definitively assessed within 6 months after the intervention. They are most often satisfactory, whenever the indication and the technique have been correct: laser lipolysis will have made it possible to remove localized fat overloads while causing appreciable stretching of the skin.
  • Laser liposuction does not replace liposuction (the fatty volumes treated must be localized and moderate) but it constitutes an alternative for the treatment of small volumes.

 

FAQ

Is Laser Liposuction Procedure Painful?

Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction can be used on larger areas such as the belly, hips, thighs, chin, knees, the internal part of the thighs, arms, back, neck and face.

In general, patients who may have contraindications are:

  • pregnant or breastfeeding women;

  • people having treatment for cancer;
  • immunocompromised people;

    I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

    Used Flymedi to arrange liposuction surgery. Mustafa showed great understanding and kept me informed via WhatsApp. I had surgery at Estethica in Istanbul....a great experience, with my surgeon doing a fantastic job. Three weeks after surgery, everything is settling down nicely and my new shape is showing very well. Very, very pleased with everything!

    For about a year and so I was thinking about getting Vaser Liposuction, and luckily when I was ready to move forward with the procedure I came across Flymedi in which I was contacted by Nadia. As I was planning to travel to Istanbul alone It was important for me to find an agency or a clinic in which I wouldn’t feel alone and I would feel comfortable.The minute I spoke with Nadia I got a very good vibe and she was very comforting and helpful.What I liked the most about Nadia specifically she was not pushy or aggressive rather she provided me with options and left it up to me to decide in which I felt she was very genuine and actually cared about her customer’s comfort rather than just trying to sell a deal.Nadia was available at all times whenever I had a question, she checked on me before, during and after the procedure. I am still recovering, but I am very happy with the results so far and the clinic that I went with.I would definitely go with Flymedi again for any future procedures.

    During my stay in istanbul i had assistance and guiding 24/7, so i didn't even feel like i was in a foreign country. Ms. Nadia helped me with the clinic finding process and the best doctor for my preferences, but also with answers to all my questions related to the surgery at magical clinic, where i had the rhinoplasty and liposuction, i had a great experience and operations.

    Great experienceThis is my first time communicating with a company overseas (out of states). To be honest it was kind of risky at the beginning, specially that I didn’t know anyone who used their services. I have applied online through their website, and within a very short time I had a response from them via WhatsApp. Geumana was a great communicator, she did her best to answer all my questions. She wasn’t pushy at all. She reviewed my situation with more than one doctor and gave me their opinions. She was with me from day 1 till today (after procedure)! She made sure that the communication with the clinic is okay and transportation and arrangements ...etc. Now after my procedure and going through all the experience, as she had informed me the staff in the clinic and the doctor were great! Still healing but I can tell that I am satisfied from the results! Very happy I had this experience and would highly recommend it to my friends and family! Thank you so much Geumana from FlyMedi
