About Lipomatic

Lipomatic is a type of liposculpting in which the excess fat will be removed from or transferred to a desired area which will slim and reshape the body. Lipomatic might seem like liposuction but the technology used in lipomatic to break and suction fat is very much different from liposution. For this reason lipomatic results in less tissue damage, uniformity of fat under skin, more fine skin look and more lasting effect.

 

To achieve a more natural result, lipomatic mostly combines with other procedures such as body lift, breast augmentation or reduction, abdominoplasty or similar plastic surgeries. Men who are interested in lipomatic can also do abdominal etching at the same time.

 

 Please note that the lipomatic procedure is not a cure for obesity since it only focuses on correcting the contour of the body and not losing weight. If you are looking for a weight-loss method, we recommend you check the bariatric surgeries such as gastric balloon, gastric sleeve, and gastric plication.

How is Lipomatic performed?

Liposculpture with lipomatic is mostly done under local anesthesia. However, if the procedure is applied on a larger area or if it is combined with other procedures, general anesthesia is recommended.

 

The procedure is more and less the same as liposuction. Lipomatic uses infrasonic sound, vibration and nutation technology to break fat cells. Cannula tube enters inside the fat tissues and destroy them by rotational movement and vibration. These movements make no damage neither to vessels nor to fat cells. Using such technology making it possible to suction fat cells completely purified with no harm. Fat cells suctioned out by lipomatic are re-usable as filler and can be injected in some other part of the body such as breast, hip, face etc.

 

Since the technique is different from liposuction, blood loss and scarring of this procedure are minimum. Also, less recovery time is required. Unlike liposuction, no hospitalization is required and the patient is usually discharge right after the procedure.
