Most of us are vaguely familiar with liposuction and what it involves – it removes fatty deposits from the body, leaving patients with a more defined, sculpted body. However, there is now a new technique for liposuction, known as ClearLipo™. ClearLipo™ is exclusive to Centre for Surgery and our surgeons are specially trained in the ClearLipo™ technique.
ClearLipo™ is a method of liposuction that was developed by surgeons at Centre for Surgery. ClearLipo™ eliminates the use of heat, therefore reducing the chances of swelling and bruising afterwards, as well as any damage to the skin and body cells.
The complete elimination of thermal energy sources:
ClearLipo™ is applicable for both primary first-time liposuction and revision liposuction, making it ideal for those who have had previous procedures they are unhappy with. The versatility of the technique has resulted in ClearLipo™ becoming the standard technique for all liposuction procedures at Centre for Surgery.
Unlike other forms of liposuction, ClearLipo™ is a multistep process, with liposuction being just one of the steps. These steps are:
The amount of time this procedure takes to complete will vary depending on which area of the body is being treated. Unlike other liposuction methods, ClearLipo™ can be performed in all the areas of the body applicable to traditional liposuction. The procedure generally takes longer than traditional liposuction because of the structured multistep process as outlined above. However, the extra time required is more than offset by the potential to achieve far superior results when compared with traditional liposuction.
Areas that are commonly treated:
Your recovery period will vary depending on which areas you had the procedure, and if it was combined with other procedures. Generally, you will be able to return to work in a few days and resume your normal day-to-day routine after two weeks. However, if ClearLipo™ was combined with procedures such as a tummy-tuck, recovery time will take longer. ClearLipo™ is combined with our innovative anaesthetic technique, ClearSleep™, for the speediest recovery possible.
ClearLipo™ is also considered an effective way to treat excessive sweating. While most people experience sweating, some people will experience sweating to a level that negatively impacts their life. Excessive sweating can often occur in the armpits, hands, feet and groin. ClearLipo™ is considered to be an effective solution.
ClearLipo™ works by removing the function of the sweat glands. Patients will be sweat and odour free in the treated area. Sweat will still be produced in areas of the body that have not been treated.
Thermal liposuction and anti-ageing injections are generally considered popular options for resolving excessive sweating. However, there are drawbacks to both of these options. Thermal methods can damage tissues, while anti-ageing injections only offer a temporary solution. ClearLipo™ offers long-lasting results without damaging tissues.
