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 causing the collagen threads in the dermis to shrink. The effect is to make the skin over the treated area appear smoother and tighter after the fat has been removed.
Further benefits include a smaller incision, less bruising and swelling due to use of laser instead of manual effort to break down fat, and a shorter post-operative recovery times due to tendency to perform SmartLipo MPX under local anaesthesia.
What makes SmartLipo different to 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 five 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 a normal body weight, but who has areas of fat that just won't budge, even with diet and exercise.
Our SmartLipo procedures are performed by Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi, a leading surgeon and pioneer of new techniques and surgical innovations. Mr Al-Ayoubi fully developed the concept of Laser Assisted Liposuction and was the first Surgeon to introduce all generations of Smartlipo and Cellulaze laser into the UK.
Cadogan Clinic was founded by Mr Bryan Mayou, who pioneered the introduction of liposuction to the UK 30 years ago. Today, Mr Mayou remains the leading practitioner in the country and now leads a team of the very best surgeons and consultants at this centre of excellence in the heart of London.
