The latest fat loss treatments like lipolysis treatment in India are cosmetic surgery procedures that use ultrasound energy, laser, or injectable substances to change the shape and appearance of the body and contour it in better appearance. 

How does Lipolysis work?

Our body has a percentage of fat cells. These fat cells are responsible for storage of energy in the body. They make the fat available when the body needs it during the periods of low glucose levels. Lipolysis is the process that helps break this fat into enzymes and water or hydrolysis. The word lyse means to break fats and the process of lipolysis breaks the fats in the body through enzymes and water or hydrolysis into glycerol and free fatty acids and release them into the blood stream.  This breaking down of triglycerides lets the fatty acids being spent from the body via the lymphatic system or repurposed as fuel. Lipolysis occurs naturally in the body and is a cosmetic surgery procedure also that result in loss in inches.

Types of Lipolysis treatment in India

Best cosmetic surgeons in India primarily use three different methods of lipolysis treatment. These include:

Ultrasonic Lipolysis treatment in India - HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment)

As the name suggests ultrasonic lipolysis, treatment in India harnesses the power of ultrasound waves to remove the fat deposits in the specific regions of the body. Ultrasonic lipolysis surgery is a completely non-surgical procedure and it is also one of the safest methods to remove localized fat deposits from:

  • Waist
  • Inner thigh
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Ankles

In the ultrasonic lipolysis treatment, the cosmetic surgeon will apply a transducer over the treatment area. The transducer emits high intensity ultrasonic waves that reach deep in the skin. The ultrasound energy beams warm the fatty tissue under the skin and can cause the fat cells to mobilize and break down. The broken down fat cells can then be metabolized, and drained by the body. The ultrasonic waves emit in a conical manner and target the area 1.5 cm below the top layer of the skin. Top cosmetic surgeons then target the transducer to deeper layers of the skin to address more fatty cells.

Is the ultrasonic lipolysis treatment safe?

Yes, it is completely safe. This type of lipolysis treatment in India targets only the fat cells and no other organs or surrounding tissues and muscles are damaged in this treatment.

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment results

You will see immediate reduction in the fat and the results will take about to 7-10 days to show up on the body. The results of HIFU are visible immediately after the treatment in the form of a smoother skin and continue to improve over the next few months. The best results are visible after about three months of treatments. This is because the growth of new collagen and straightening of the elastic fibre continues as the skin heals. 

Injection lipolysis treatment in India

The use of injections to dissolve the localized fat deposits was first used in Italy in the 1980s.  Injection lipolysis treatment in India is a type of mesotherapy treatment in which multiple fine injections are given in the treatment area. The injections use specific chemicals that damage the lipocytes and reduce the fat. Injection lipolysis treatment in Mumbai is effectively used by best cosmetic surgeons in Mumbai to reduce the fat pockets on face, neck, upper arms, and body. Injection lipolysis treatment in India requires multiple treatment sessions in which the fact is liquefied, dissolved, and then eliminated from the body.

Injection lipolysis treatment in India uses two main ingredients

  • Deoxycholic acid
  • Phosphatidylcholine (PPC)

Injection lipolysis treatment in Mumbai is used for getting rid of fat from

  • Double chin
  • Love handles
  • Tummy
  • Thighs
  • Lower abdomen

Injection Lipolysis treatment results:

The results are visible gradually over a period of time and you will see a toned and smooth skin with no pigmentation and dark spots.

Injection lipolysis treatment is better suited for soft fat deposits and for patients, which have small fat bulges. Injection lipolysis treatment in India can be combined with cryolipolysis and other lipolysis treatment for treating large areas with fat deposits.

Inform the cosmetic surgeon if you are pregnant or lactating women or have diabetes, or have kidney problems because such conditions are not suitable for injection lipolysis treatment. 

Cryolipolysis treatment in India:

Cryolipolysis treatment removes fat by freezing. Cryolipolysis is also known as Cool Sculpting and it is a completely non-invasive treatment that uses extreme cold to cause the fat cells to die. Top cosmetic doctors in India use Cool Sculpting to reduce the fat pockets and reshape the contours of the body. A cupped device is placed on top of the treatment area and temperature range of -11 to +5 °C (+12.2 to +41 °F) is transmitted that freezes the fat cells and destroys them. The degree of cooling does not cause any damage to the skin because the skin, muscle, and nerves freeze at a lower temperature than the fat cells.  The dead cells are flushed out of the body resulting in the reduction of fatty tissue layer. Cryolipolysis can can be used on the following body areas:

  • Submental area
  • Inner and outer Thigh
  • Abdomen
  • Flank
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • Fat underneath the buttocks
  • Upper arm
  • Under the chin

Cryolipolysis gives about 25% of fat reduction. Some adverse effects of Cryolipolysis include local redness, bruising, numbness and tingling on the treated area but these are very temporary and subsidize within a month.  One to two sessions of Cool Sculpting sessions are needed for noticeable results. Results take about 2-3 months to appear in full. 

Laser Lipolysis treatment in India

Laser lipolysis treatment in India is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that helps top cosmetic surgeons in India bust the hard to reach fat in parts of body. The controlled heat from the lasers at various wavelengths is used to melt the fat. Nd:YAG  laser is the gold standard in lipolysis surgery because

  • It precisely targets the largest directly heated volume of subcutaneous tissue
  • Has very little effect on the surrounding dermal tissue
  • It has relatively low absorption in water
  • It has high ability to coagulate the blood vessels

The fat is then exiled from the body through the lymphatic drainage.  Apart from minor bruising and pain there are no other complications with laser lipolysis procedures and the results are better than liposuction for tightening and shrinking the skin. Best skin doctors in Mumbai combine traditional liposuction with laser lipolysis to give tighter abdomen and well sculpted body without making the patient go under long recovery time. Laser lipolysis treatment in India can be used to target:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Face

Preparing for lipolysis treatment

Your cosmetic surgeon will provide you with all the information that you need to prepare for the lipolysis treatment in India. Some basic guidelines include:

  • Stop taking blood thinners and other medications that can delay and hamper the healing process.
  • Avoid getting any other treatment on the area to be treated.
  • Work on maintaining your weight goals through diet and exercise
  • Inform your doctor with any pre-existing conditions that you have

Duration of the Lipolysis treatment surgery

Lipolysis procedures in India last for about an hour per session.  There will be no general anaesthesia and you will be able to resume basic general activities immediately after the session is over. However if any lipolysis treatment is combined with liposuction then you will have to go under general anaesthesia  and the recovery process will be slightly longer.

After Lipolysis surgery treatment in India

There are hardly any side effects after Lipolysis surgery. Your cosmetic doctor in India will give you some antibiotics to take for 3-5 days after the procedure to minimize the risk of any infection. If you feel any loss of sensation or abnormal pain in the treated area then report to your doctor immediately. In most of the lipolysis treatments you will be able to see the difference of the treatment in the before and after photos yourself.

For long sustained results of lipolysis treatment, it is important that you commit yourself to a conscious lifestyle with regular exercise, well balanced diet and a maintained routine.
