Liposuction Made Less Time Consuming

Liposuction is made easy but the new fat-busting laser treatment called SmartLipo. It is to be launched in Britain and is claimed to be a quicker and less invasive form of liposuction. It removes unsightly lumps of fat in the thighs, bottom and in the double chins areas. About six cosmetic surgery clinics in London, the Midlands and the West Country plan to offer this treatment.

But he Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved to the procedure in America. But it is widely available in Australia, the Far East and Italy. It costs Ģ800-Ģ2,500 depending upon the fat content in the individual's body. The laser treatment works in three steps: the first pulse breaks the fat cell, the second seals off surrounding blood vessels, preventing bleeding, and the third stimulates the production of collagen tissue and causes the skin to tighten.

Dr Aamer Khan, who runs a skin clinic in Harley Street, said that people need not go to the hospitals as these procedures are available in cosmetic surgery clinics. The popularity of this technique in Britain has increased by 35% according to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Now-a-days men are also worried about their looks and about 11% of all procedures have been carried out on men. Wigmore Medical, the company distributing the SmartLipo machines in Britain says that is perfectly safe as the 1mm laser is targeted directly at the fat cells.
