SmartLipo MPX, or laser liposuction, is an innovative liposuction technique for the removal of unwanted body fat from areas in your body that do not respond well to diet and exercise alone.
Laser technology is utilized to rupture the fat cells, allowing the cells to drain away more easily and simultaneously causing the collagen threads in the dermis to shrink.
The overall effect is to eliminate the stubborn pocket(s) of fat, whilst rejuvenating the appearance of the skin over the treated area and making it appear smoother and tighter after the fat has been removed.

What Areas Can Be Targeted By Laser Liposuction Or SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is very effective at targeting stubborn pockets of fat in all areas of the body including:
hips and thighs
abdomen and stomach area
breast and chest
neck and chin
Laser liposuction is a particularly effective treatment for sensitive areas such as the face and neck, where minimal scarring is preferred.
What Makes SmartLipo Different From Normal Liposuction?
SmartLipo removes fat by breaking down your fat cells with a laser before they are removed. It is less invasive and therefore can have fewer side effects than traditional liposuction. Laser-assisted liposuction has been around in Europe for about fifteen years.
Laser-assisted liposuction works on small, localised areas of fat on the face and body. Areas that can be treated with laser-assisted liposuction include the face, neck, jowls, arms, back, gynecomastia (or male breasts) and loose skin.
Just as with any surgical procedure, laser-assisted liposuction isn't for everyone. The ideal candidate is someone who is in generally good health and close to normal body weight, but who has areas of fat that just won't budge, even with diet and exercise.
Cadogan Clinic was founded by Mr Bryan Mayou, who pioneered the introduction of liposuction to the UK 30 years ago. Mr Mayou has personally invited Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi, a leading surgeon and the first Surgeon to introduce Smartlipo and Cellulaze laser into the UK, to practice laser assisted liposuction at the Clinic

I had a procedure at the Cadogan Clinic. From my first consultation, my surgeon was honest, straight forward, and precise. All the details and expectations of the surgery were fully explained, along with the after care. I am still in recovery, but the results already look fantastic; they delivered on all the promises that he made to me.
I could not praise the Cadogan Clinic or their fantastic staff more highly. I had a wonderful experience, am delighted with my outcome and in particular very grateful to the 24/7 nursing staff who were always on hand for any questions I had, at whatever time day or night
I was nervous before my procedure, but I was put at ease by all the staff I encountered from my patient advisor, surgeon and the nursing staff. It was a huge reassurance to have access to the 24/7 on call nurse service immediately after my procedure also.
I had the most amazing experience with the Cadogan Clinic. They were extremely accommodating and professional. I was a little bit hesitant to go through with it but their safety standards and professionalism put me at ease. Most importantly I am so happy with my results.
I would like to thank the Cadogan Clinic and my surgeon for the outstanding job he did on my complicated and difficult surgery. Mine was an unusual case, but I could not have had a better outcome. Throughout the whole process from my first contact with the clinic I had wonderful support. Someone was always on the end of the phone, and I really appreciated the support
I wanted to say a big thank you to the Cadogan Clinic, I am so happy with the results from my surgery. I can’t thank my patient advisor enough for being my support throughout my journey. I felt so reassured from my initial consultation with her and she followed me up closely at each stage. Would recommend highly.
A huge thank you to the Cadogan Clinic who looked after me whilst having surgery. They treated me with so much care and it was truly appreciated. The care from the nurses was wonderful, and I genuinely felt that they really cared. First class service from the start. I also had follow-up calls the day after, couldn’t ask for more. A huge thank you to all involved
The Cadogan Clinic and their surgical and nursing staff were excellent throughout my experience with them. The 24/7 nursing support in particular was a huge comfort to me, and I found them extremely responsive

What are the benefits of day case surgery?
What are the risks
Complications are unlikely. That said, as with all surgery, some complications are possible, your surgeon will discuss each of these risks comprehensively at your consultation.
Smart Lipo laser liposuction is performed at the Cadogan Clinic by Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi, the UK's leading Smart Lipo surgeon.
Mr Ayoubi developed the concept of Laser Liposuction and was the first Surgeon to introduce all generations of Smartlipo lasers into the UK. He had performed over 2,000 laser liposuction and body contouring procedures since 2006.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING LASER LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT?
First the treated area is marked up and a small incision (1-2 mm) is made with a micro-scalpel and the local anaesthetic is injected.
The optical fibre of the laser is inserted with its progress through the skin tissue clearly observed from the surface by the light on the laser.
Treatment involves tracing the marked up lines on the surface of the skin with the laser underneath, in a regular, metronomic lengthways movement. The laser breaks down the fatty tissue via thermal energy and the mechanical movement, and transforms the fat cells into an oily emulsion that can be suctioned out easily.
There are no stitches, only very small incision sites that heal quickly in a few days. The treatment take about 1-2 hours depending on the number of treated areas. Given the minimal trauma involved in the treatment, recovery is much quicker than with traditional alternatives, and you can be back to daily life the very next day.
HOW LONG IS LASER LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT?
The length of Laser liposuction treatment depends on the number of areas being targeted. Surgery time can range from 1 hour to 3 hours.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS FROM LASER LIPOSUCTION?
Most patients can see instant results following the SmartLipo procedure, however, it is important to remember that there will be some swelling after surgery. Once this subsides your full results will be visible – this should take between one to two months maximum.
ARE MY LASER LIPOSUCTION RESULTS PERMANENT?
Laser liposuction results are long lasting providing a healthy diet, lifestyle and weight are maintained following surgery.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER LASER LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT?
Downtime is very limited. The patient is free to leave the Clinic after several hours, and should immediately resume reasonable mobility. Exercise should be limited for a maximum of two weeks, with a return to work possible the very next day.
