Surgical or non-surgical, that is the question
As the body ages, muscles and fat start to move from position, and the skin can become lax. While there are non-surgical treatments available to help tighten skin and reduce fatty deposits, such as M22 fractional Laser, the most effective means of fat reduction remains to be surgery.
What fat reduction surgery is right for me?
Depending on what area you wish to address, there are different types of fat reduction surgery to suit.
Liposuction and laser lipo
If you have a large area of fat on the stomach, for example, liposuction may be the most appropriate method of removal. Liposuction has advanced dramatically in the past ten years or so, making the patient experience much more comfortable and effective. At PHI Clinic, London, we have multiple liposuction devices, including laser lipo. Using a small probe, the surgeon can tackle stubborn fat and drain it from the body. This contributes to a much flatter surface, removing a significant amount of fat in the treated area.
This is commonly performed in combination with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), which aims to remove excess skin caused by fluctuating weight and ageing. What many patients find, is if they are removing excess weight by dieting, exercising, or by means of surgery, they are left with sagging, lax skin. An abdominoplasty helps uniform the skin to compliment the change in weight.
Equally, if you are looking at targeting cellulite, Celfina is a great, minimally-invasive option. Using a small laser fibre, a doctor heats the fat to around 40 degrees Celsius, which dissolves and breaks down the fibre strands in between fat, creating this ‘cottage cheese effect’.
