Slim Lipo is a combination of laser technology and liposuction techniques and is based on laser waves and fat deposits by destroying and liquefying them. Then this liquefied fat is removed from the body using a liposuction cannula. It is a less invasive technique and provides shorter recovery time compared with traditional liposuction. Slim Lipo can be applied safely in many areas of the body; the most preferred regions are abdomen, buttocks, hips, knees, back, arm, waist, etc. These are regions where stubborn excess fat accumulates and cannot be removed with diet and exercise.

Slim Lipo procedure has a tightening effect as well as fat removal. For this effect, it is applied frequently in areas such as the face, neck, arm, inside the leg and abdomen. In addition to these two effects, Slim Lipo can also be used in the armpit to eliminate sweating.


Slim Lipo is the perfect choice for patients who have excess fat and who want to undergo liposuction surgery but do not want to have visible scars after surgery. Additionally, as with conventional liposuction procedure, Slim Lipo can be used as a part of a fat transfer or breast augmentation procedure, with liquefied fat tissue to enhance the appearance.

Slim Lipo seems to be a good choice for you if you want to undergo liposuction surgery, but are afraid of surgery and possible scars. Laser fat removal guarantees you less visible marks of operation as well as improved liposuction recovery.


How long should you stay in the hospital after the surgery? 

You may spend one night in the hospital after the procedure to monitor your status. 


1-4 hours


How many days should I travel/stay abroad to do liposuction? 

You will need to stay a minimum of 3 days abroad in your chosen destination. 


The first step in the preparation of Slim Lipo will be a comprehensive consultation with the doctor. It is important to report all medical conditions and medications taken. You will need to stop using birth control pills two weeks before the operation, as it may cause blood clots to form. Likewise, all blood thinners, such as aspirin, should be discontinued for seven days prior to laser fat removal surgery. Finally, quitting smoking is a healthy choice for some time before and after Slim Lipo. By quitting, you increase your chances of proper liposuction recovery.


The Slim Lipo procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia. Once the anesthetic has been applied, the surgeon creates small incisions for being able to insert the laser and fat suctioning device. Then the device is inserted through the incisions and liquifying fatty tissue via wavelengths. The surgeon gently manipulates the device to remove excess fat and contour the treatment area.

 

Unlike Smart Lipo, Slim Lipo does not cause damage to other body cells and burns. After fat removal, the excessive tissue may be used in a fat transfer or other cosmetic surgery such as breast augmentation. 


Recovery from Slim Lipo is much shorter and less painful than in the post-operative period of conventional liposuction. This is due to the size of the incisions made during the procedure - they are smaller in the case of Slim Lipo than traditional treatments. To fully recover, you are usually asked to rest for three days and then return to work. 

However, some specialists advise that during the first two weeks of Slim Lipo recovery you should wear a compression garment to achieve the better and quicker result. Around one-two weeks after your laser fat removal procedure, you can start thinking about sports.


Although Slim Lipo is relatively safer and less invasive than conventional liposuction surgery, there are risks of excessive bleeding, bruising, and swelling, as in almost any procedure. Besides necrosis, there is also the possibility of a small infection. If you experience strong pain or changes in your body such as discoloration etc. you should contact the specialist who conducted your Slim Lipo.


Right after Slim Lipo procedure is performed, patients may experience some swelling, bruising,irregular skin pigmentation, or infection. However, in the case of Slim Lipo, these signs are milder and pass faster.


Slim Lipo is thought to be a generally successful procedure, with its success rates outperforming these of normal liposuction surgery. As an answer to the question of “does slim lipo work?”, it is claimed that this procedure achieves success in more than 90% according to patients' reviews.


After Slim Lipo, patients enjoy their enhanced appearance; they feel very fit and pleasant. If you are considering liposuction, Slim Lipo allows you to avoid visible scars and shorten your recovery time.


What is the Difference Between Slim Lipo and Smart Lipo? 
Slim Lipo and Smart Lipo are two very similar procedures. The main difference between them is the wavelength of the laser used during operations. Smart Lipo may take less time, but there is more risk of complications and side effects than Slim Lipo. Slim Lipo, with its laser specifically calibrated to liquefy fat and not burn other tissues, is a safer alternative. 

What are the Advantages of Slim Lipo over Normal Liposuction?
Slim Lipo allows you to avoid visible and bigger scars and longer and usually more painful recovery period, compared to traditional liposuction surgery. 

How Quick is Slim Lipo Recovery?
Slim Lipo recovery is very quick. 1 to 3 days after the procedure, patients are able to come back to their work or daily activities, while they need to wait with doing sports or other strenuous activities for around 1 to 2 weeks.


1-3 days


1-2 weeks
