SMARTLIPO - the smart way to loose fat

Recently we had an old patient of mine, SL, a beautiful young model who has landed an acting job which required her to expose her arms and legs. So she wanted them sculpted to slimmer limbs but did not want to undergo any surgery. She wanted something effective and yet not invasive, with little downtime as she still had modeling shoots to go to, and does not require too many visits.
I proposed to her Laserlipolisis using my favorite technology of all time - the Smartlipo Laserlipolisis.

The Smartlipo laser is from Deka, a prominent laser company based in Florence, Italy. It uses the 1064nm wavelength which is sensitive to water and fat. By using this laser to melt the unwanted fat, turning it into oily discharge instead, making it easy to extract if desired through small incisions on the skin.

This is the journey :
The Patient
SL is a young lady who is of normal weight with some areas of stubborn fat. She works as a model and actress and exposes these areas during work so the procedure cannot leave any obvious marks on her skin. She also needed to recover fast as a new assignment had come up and she needed to start work soon after.
She came in the morning for her procedure. Her desire was to make upper arms slimmer and her thighs smaller. After signing her consent forms and indicating the areas she wanted to treat, she changed into our OT robe. I proceeded to take pictures for the "Before"of these areas for our records.

The Procedure.
Local tumescent anesthesia (local anesthetic mix with physiological solution ) is infused into the area to be treated. WHile waiting for the local to work, which takes 15-20min, I prepared the laser equipment.


Preparing the laser fibre optic: The laser fibretic is a long flexible and thin "wirelike" instrument that is only 2mm diameter. Half of it is wrapped in a heat proof rubberlike casing. This end is attached to the laser machine while the other end where the fibre optic is exposed, is inserted into a canula with just 2mm of the tip exposed. Here I am making sure the fibre optic transmits good, sharp laser beam.


I then inserted the laser fibreoptic via the canula through a small "stabwound" incision on the skin into the area to be treated and where the local anesthesia has been given. Once the position is correct, lasering of fat below skin starts. A red beam is seen through the skin and this indicates where the laser optic fibre tip. A popping "popcorn" like sound is also heard indicating the breaking or melting of the fat cell membranes. This picture shows the lasertip is right in the middle of the subcutaneous fat.


The melted fat becomes oil and when the area is pressed,  oily secretion is expressed out from the incision points.




The bulk of the melted fat is then extracted via syringes. Lasered fat is yellow like melted butter



The collection of lasered fat or "Lysate" from the upper arms, inner thighs and saddle bags.



Because all is done under local anesthesia with just a little bit of oral sedation, SL is able to go home immediately after, and return to work the very next day. She is recommended to wear a firm compression garment for at least 2 weeks. After 3 days, she undergoes a radio frequency treatment (RF) to help with drainage, and healing. After 2 weeks, she will continue with mechanostimulation by Endermologie sessions to help with skin tightening and to farther enhance the sculpting of the area.

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to :
1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats
2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to
3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) .
With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at 62…

Laser Vagina Rejuvenation

Our V2LR laser handpiece is finally here. Had a revision session with Prof Zerbinatti in the clinic on 3rd Jan. Imagine, for those of us who wish to "rejuvenate" ourselves can do so now with ease and painlessly. Just make an appointment with the clinic, come in 30min earlier so a topical numbing cream can be applied, and have the procedure conducted and completed in 1/2 hr,tops. What will you get ? Well, internally the lasering will "puff"up the mucosa of the vaginal wall by collagen remodeling, as well as improve sensations. Externally the procedure can lighten the skin color, increase sensitivity as well tighten surrounding area. ALl these in just 3 sessions! Prof Zerbinatti claims that in his clinic this is currently the most popular procedure among women in their 30s and 40s.


I am very excited about this procedure. I know a lot of women out there do not have any problems, and therefore do not require any surgical LVR but would like to just improve. Like everyhti…

Hydrafacial vs Silkpeel

Our old but very reliable microdermabrasion Diamond crystal peeling machine broke down after many years of high performance. It was one of our highest performing equipment and it had served us well. My dear Diamond MDA I shall miss you. And although I would like to continue our liaison , it does not see possible anymore as there is no longer a distributor in Malaysia. So, I have been going round researching and looking for a new MDA unit to replace our old one. Some here comes the Silk Peel and Hydra Facial.
Silk Peel conducts both dry microdermabrasion using a diamond tipped hand piece which abates and abrade the upper layers of skin. If desired, a "wet microdermabrasion" can also be conducted using the diamond tip hand piece but while the abrasion is going on, solutions containing micronutrients and hydrating agents are infused alongside. This gives for a more effective treatment as delivery is more efficient as products are more penetrate.
Now, the Hydra Facial?
Well, am …
