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.

How Does it Work?
The surgeon uses a laser to liquefy the unwanted excess fat under the skin. The fat is then removed using a very thin cannula. The Slim Lipo procedure requires only a few small incisions which become invisible over time. It is a revolutionary body-sculpting system that aims to reshapes specific areas of the body by targeting and liquefying fat cells with minimal recovery time.

4. Medical Examinations

Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing will hinder the success of the procedure and if any risk observed, surgeons try to eliminate them first.
In the Slim Lipo procedure, the surgeon begins to move the device in the area to be treated by selecting the appropriate wavelength for areas with excess fat or loose skin. The heated fat cells begin to break down and melt. Laser energy liquefies these fat cells and makes them ready to be removed. Then the surgeon removes this fat with the help of a small incision. Incisions are not required suturing. The surgeon can use this technology to deliver short pulses of low energy or long pulses of higher energy, either may be necessary depending on the patient and the part of the body to be treated. Surgeons need the right wavelength and power to successfully melt and dissolve fat while protecting tissue and other anatomical structures. Slim Lipo allows your cosmetic surgeon to do a better job and give you a better figure. Like other laser lipolysis treatments, Slim Lipo is considered a no-hospital stay procedure and is often performed in a medical office under local anesthesia. The procedure usually lasts between 30 and 60 minutes per part of the body to be treated. The incision and treatment are usually minimal and the recovery time is short.
Things You Should Consider After Slim Lipo Treatment
Is Slim Lipo Procedure Painful?
Pain and discomfort may occur after the procedure, but this post-operative pain can be easily managed with simple painkillers prescribed by your surgeon.
Will I Have Scars After the Slim Lipo?
Slim Lipo causes a scar but much smaller than the scar formed after traditional liposuction. Because the Slim Lipo procedure requires very tiny incisions, surgeons do not use sutures, therefore they are recovered in a short time.
What Is the Main Difference Between Slim Lipo And Smart Lipo?
The main difference between these two laser-assisted liposuction procedures is the device used in the procedure and the wavelength that these devices produce. Slim Lipo is a newer technology and has a smaller device to designate produce two dedicated wavelengths; 924nm for fat cells and 975nm for skin tissue. Smart Lipo's wavelength is single and 1064 nm which is higher than Slim Lipo.
