Laser lipolysis, commonly known as ‘laser lipo’, is a non-invasive liposculpture procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat such as saddlebags, love handles and double chins. It can effectively reduce areas of fat resistant to diet or exercise with fewer side effects than traditional procedures such as liposuction. The procedure uses a laser to effectively ‘melt’ unwanted fat on the face and body, tighten the skin and aspirate the fat instantly.

Yes, it is a very effective treatment. However, Smartlipo like any weight loss programme needs a sensible diet and a healthy lifestyle to maintain peak condition and efficacy.The effects of Laserlipolysis are permanent as this method not only destroys the fat, but also the “blisters” in which the fat accumulates.As the organism does not have the capacity to produce new cells of this type, the areas treated are not able to re-expand again.If the person puts on weight after the procedure, the excess fat will be distributed throughout the other areas and it will find its way back into the treated areas.No new adipose cells will be generated in the sites where this Laserlipolysis treatment has been carried out.

No, laserlipolysis is not designed to treat obesity. However, Smartlipo with suction can be used to treat two or more large areas in a person who is overweight and who finds it quite difficult to lose weight. A person with obesity, who requests Laserlipolysis, is always recommended to try losing weight by other means first.

Laserlipolysis dissolves the fatty cells and it is not possible for them to reproduce themselves. Your new, more harmonious, and attractive silhouette is permanent. If the patient puts on weight again the increase will tend to be distributed proportionally over the entire body. The same applies for a weight loss.

The total number of fat cells in the body of an adult after adolescence is constant. The greater number of adipose cells located in a specific site, the more difficult it will be to reduce this area by dieting alone. The increase in weight is due to the increase in the size of the existing cells, not the creation of new cells.

This is why dieting reduces the size of all the cells in a proportional manner, leaving the body without any significant changes.
