The slim lipo technique is one of the most technologically advanced liposuction methods. During the procedure, your doctor will utilize a device that provides laser assistance for optimal precision. The laser device used is called a Diode laser and it can target the fatty cells in the body.
Compared to traditional liposuction techniques, the slim lipo method offers less pain, swelling, bruising, and an accelerated healing period. It also has an improved skin retraction technique. Slim Lipo helps the body to get rid of unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, upper arms, knees, neck, cheeks, and chin.
WHO IS BEST SUITED TO RECEIVE A SLIM LIPO TREATMENT?
You are a candidate for this revolutionary procedure if you’re a person with normal weight, but you have pockets of stubborn fat in specific areas. You should also have firm and elastic skin. You should have realistic expectations, be psychologically sound, and physically healthy.
Age is not a major concern, but patients above the age of 65 tend to lose elasticity in their skin so the results may be different from that of a younger patient with tighter, firmer skin. The precise nature of the treatment can help improve your healing process and result in a decrease in the amount of downtime you experience.
You will start seeing the changes from the surgery almost immediately! As your swelling begins to subside, the new contours of your body will reveal themselves and you will be pleased with the visible changes you experience.
It may take about four to six weeks for the swelling to subside. By this time, you will be able to see a considerable improvement in your body shape. Your final results will start to appear around three to six months from the initial procedure.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE SURGERY
It is normal to experience some fluid drainage from your incisions. In order to help your skin to fit the new contours of your body and control the swelling, you will be provided with a cozy elastic garment that you should wear over the areas where you received treatment for a few weeks.
Some doctors also prescribe some kind of antibiotics in order to prevent infections. You may find yourself feeling sore or stiff for a few days. That can be managed with your prescribed pain medication.
RESULTS FROM THE SLIM LIPO TREATMENT
The Slim Lipo surgery can be done as an outpatient surgery in any hospital or medical facility. There is a very limited healing period for this surgery. After the procedure is completed, you can return to your normal daily activities after some rest.
Since the laser tip is as small as 1.5 mm, there is also only minimal post-surgical marks that’s barely noticeable compared to the marks sustained from other surgical procedures, which is approximately an inch in length.
If you follow a balanced, healthy lifestyle by having a good exercise routine and diet plan, the results from the liposuction are not only remarkable, but can also last for a very long time.
