Liposuction (Commonly shortened to Lipo)
Vivek is one of the most prolific liposuction surgeons in the UK and he has invested heavily in equipment at his clinic and his private hospital practice allowing him and his team to offer the widest possible range of liposuction options.
Lipo can be used to treat a wide range of conditions across many areas of the body either as a single treatment for one area or as a multi area treatment. It is commonly used as a supplementary procedure to achieve optimal results for other surgeries.
Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
PAL devices use power supplied by an electric motor or compressed air to produce either a rapid in-and-out movement or a spinning rotation of an attached liposuction cannula. Clinical evidence and surgeon feedback indicate that PAL is less traumatic to patients, and more effective yielding a smoother surface result
In the case of Vaser liposuction, tumescent liquid, or a saline solution mixed with anaesthetics, is injected into the body area being treated. Instead of using a needle and manual movement to break down the fat tissue, Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound high frequency vibration to break fat cells apart before being suctioned out.
Using SmartLipo, a small cannula (needle) and powerful laser offers precise targeting of even the smallest body part. This allows pockets of fat that would otherwise be untreatable with traditional liposuction to be targetted. The laser not only melts the fat and facilitates its removal; it also causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately which reduces bruising and the chance of blood loss. Finally, that same laser stimulates collagen retraction and skin tightening which are optimal for shrinking the skin once fat has been melted and removed.
I-Lipo – Non Surgical Fat Reduction
Using treatment pads placed on specific areas of the body, the lasers in these pads are used to trigger a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol which can be released through channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy. Therefore it is important that the patient undertakes exercise within 4 hours of treatment for a minimum of 30 mins
