The HAUT- UND LASERZENTRUM AN DER OPER also offers the innovative LipoLas® laser treatment for body contouring. The minimally invasive, low-risk method makes it possible, for the first time, to gently remove fatty accumulations without surgical intervention and, above all, with minimal side effects. The special feature: the laser combines different wavelengths, which can even achieve a lasting, skin-tightening effect deep down.
The LipoLas® treatment is performed using a thin laser fibre, which is inserted through the smallest incisions in previously anaesthetized tissue. The excess fat cells are targeted using controlled, precise laser energy and liquefied by the radiation’s resulting heat without damaging the surrounding tissue and then degraded by the body. What remains is a lasting tightening effect, which results from the rebuilding of collagen structures triggered in the subcutaneous connective tissue.
The method is ideal for body contouring and for the treatment of cellulite. But hard-to-reach areas, such as a double chin, can also be tightened with the LipoLas® laser. A session takes about 30 minutes, depending on the area of the body to be treated. The pain, bruising and swelling are much less than with conventional liposuction. All everyday activities can be resumed after about a week. If a patient already has a lot of excess skin before conventional liposuction, then this can be tightened during the suction using the LipoLas® so that surgical skin tightening is only required in very serious cases.
LipoLas® is the revolution in the field of laser therapy. With this minimally invasive treatment it is possible for the first time to perform liposuction and body contouring gently and without side effects. The excess fat cells are targeted using controlled, precise laser energy in the tissue and liquefied by the heat without damaging the surrounding tissue. They are subsequently broken down by the body and a lasting firming effect is the result. The LipoLas® method can also be described as a gentle alternative to conventional liposuction, as it only requires a local anaesthetic and is associated with a significantly shorter recovery period.
The method is ideal for body contouring and for the treatment of cellulite. But hard-to-reach areas, such as a double chin, can also be tightened using the LipoLas® laser. We also offer the treatment in combination with liposuction, particularly in the case of larger fat deposits. As a result, disturbing fat deposits can be reduced in just one single session and the skin can be tightened at the same time.
The LipoLas® treatment is carried out using a thin laser fibre, which is inserted through the tiniest incisions in tissue anaesthetised beforehand. The excess fat cells are targeted using controlled, precise laser energy and liquefied by the radiation’s resulting heat without damaging the surrounding tissue and then broken down by the body. What remains is a lasting tightening effect, which results from the rebuilding of collagen structures triggered in the subcutaneous connective tissue.
One single application is sufficient and lasts about 60 minutes or longer, depending on the area of the body being treated.
The laser-induced closure of the small blood vessels, which takes place simultaneously during treatment with LipoLas®, has a positive effect on postoperative healing. The pain, bruising and swelling are therefore much less severe than with conventional liposuction. They usually subside after about a week. All everyday activities can be resumed from this point on.
As with any procedure, swelling may occur after the LipoLas® treatment, but this is much less severe than with classic liposuction, for example. This can be quickly alleviated with cooling gel pads.
As an effective alternative to liposuction, LipoLas® can be used to achieve first-class aesthetic results on the abdomen, waist, hips, knees and even hard-to-reach areas of the body without undergoing surgery. In addition to the reduction of fatty tissue, the result is a lasting, skin tightening effect.
All surgery is associated with certain risks. Even though these are rather low with the LipoLas® treatment, bruising may occur in individual cases, in the worst case it may even lead to bacterial infections.
No. In most cases a local anaesthetic is completely sufficient. However, if the surgery is covering a larger area, the treatment can also be carried out under general anaesthesia.
The procedure itself is not associated with any pain. This is carried out under local anaesthetics, so virtually nothing is felt. However, when the anaesthesia wears off after the procedure, slight pain may be felt.
Patients most frequently come to us with the desire to lose fat on their stomach or hips. But areas that are difficult to reach, such as a double chin, are often treated using the LipoLas® method too.
The result achieved is permanent, comparable to liposuction, provided the body weight remains stable.
Anticoagulant medication such as aspirin should be avoided for about a week before the procedure. It is also advisable to stop smoking or at least reduce it to a minimum, as this can prolong wound healing unnecessarily.
The costs are much less than with conventional liposuction. The price depends on the region being treated. We will be happy to advise you with regards to this in person.
